PrivCom's Trust Principles

PrivCom’s trust principles guide the development of rules that all services, engagement activities and support mechanisms follow, based on the purposes of engagement while assisting the public with privacy and the implementation of Bermuda's Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).

Hands Up

People-centered

The rights and needs of people are of highest importance. Wherever possible, people are allowed to retain control over their information in line with legislative requirements, including the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).

Our team may be small but we provide a range of services and training via our website. Visit the Events page to explore our public training initiatives. On our Services page, you can book support, coaching and consultation for your privacy interests and concerns.

Security

Everyone has the right to expect that personal and organisational information will be stored, shared and used in a secure manner. Technology design, operational controls and regulations governing the use of personal and organisational information safeguard it from breaches, corruption, or loss. PrivCom aims to ensure that personal information used by our organisation is secured at all times.

Privacy-enabling

Privacy is a critical enabler of trust and wherever possible, Everyone’s privacy must be respected. Our approaches to privacy are proactive and preventative and privacy is embedded in the design and maintenance of systems and services. We aim to ensure protection or accountability and privacy is continuously protected across PrivCom.

Sustainable

PrivCom's processes are designed and maintained in a manner that supports its technical, social, and economic sustainability in the long-term. Our services and training are flexible to adapt to change (for example, implementation priorities, emerging technologies or regulatory developments) and support innovation. They are also scalable and able to be altered in size, in order to enable people-centred outcomes.
