  Brexit and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)  
  On 23rd June, Britain voted to leave the European Union. This does not, however, mean that the EU GDPR (which will come into action in May 2018) is irrelevant to businesses in Britain. In fact, the GDPR will still apply to all businesses handling data on EU citizens, even if the country where a supplier is based outside the EU.

Click here to visit our website and find out more about the GDPR.

  Did you know that ADDS offers secure IT and media destruction?  
Unfortunately, deleting or overwriting your media doesn’t protect your data; with the right technology, data can still be recovered from a discarded hard drive, leaving your information vulnerable. ADDS’ secure media destruction service makes data recovery impossible since your digital devices are shredded into tiny pieces and recycled. We can shed the following media:
  • Hard drives
  • Mobile phones
  • Tablets
  • Laptops
  • Data tapes
  • CDs and DVDs
Furthermore, we’ll always provide you with a Certificate of Destruction each time your media is shredded; you can feel assured that you are complying with the GDPR, as it is critical to have a documented audit trail of your data disposal practices.

To read more about our IT and media destruction services, visit the Hard Drive & Media Shredding Services page on our website and click here to read the FQ’s blog ‘Media Destruction Best Practices’.

For a FREE media destruction consultation, just email the File Queen (
