GDPR, data protection and shredding

If your business handles personal data, or anything that could reasonably identify an individual, you need to be aware of and comply with GDPR regulations.

If you're unsure about GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018), or are unclear about your responsibility for document destruction, please visit our GDPR FAQs. Our team is glad to help you arrange for the destruction of documents and devices to help you ensure your compliance with data protection regulations.

How can we help you meet your GDPR obligations?

Ensuring that documents which are you no longer need or are required to keep - but contain information which could identify an individual - are destroyed securely will help you maintain your GDPR compliance. We provide you with a certificate of destruction for your records and a paper trail of documents which have been destroyed. We also offer the option of watching your documents being destroyed in our shredder at our Leicester shredding facility.

Trust and destruction

The individuals your business deals with - even if they're not customers - have their rights to privacy enshrined in law, and this includes paper documentation as well as digital documentation. Most people associate GDPR compliance with marketing, unsolicited telephone calls, unauthorised access to digital information, but often forget that paper documentation does exist that falls under GDPR rules. From simply printing out an email a customer has sent, through to files, contracts, and other documents. They trust you to keep their information safe.

On-demand shredding

If you're having a clear out after the end of a project, need to dispose of files which have reached the end of a required retention period, or simply don't have enough paperwork to be shred on a scheduled basis, on demand shredding is a perfect solution. You choose when and how much you shred, and simply book a collection or bring your shredding to one of our local Bradshaw Shredding branches. You can book and pay for your shredding and collection (if required) online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Hard drive & electronic data destruction

Maintaining GDPR compliance also includes the secure destruction of your digital data - anything stored on a computer, mobile phone, CD, DVD, USB stick, external hard drive, ZIP drive, etc. Simply deleting the information on the drives, or wiping them and reinstalling software on top of them may not be sufficient to comply with GDPR requirements. You need to securely destroy the items in order to ensure you're keeping personal information safe.
