Purpose of this policy

In order to maintain the highest of standards, BPM Tech need to record all telephone calls made or received and retain them for a period of time.

BPM Tech shall ensure that the use of these recordings is fair and comply with the requirements of the relevant legislation. This includes:

  • The Data Protection Act 2018
  • The General Data Protection Regulation 2018

Scope of policy

All BPM Tech’s calls made or received will be recorded. Under normal circumstances a call will not be retrieved, monitored or retained for longer than 24 months unless:

  • It is necessary to investigate a complaint
  • It is required to be used as evidence in a legal dispute
  • there is a threat to the health and safety of staff or visitors or for the prevention or detection of crime
  • it is necessary to check compliance with regulatory procedures
