Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - WEEE Regulation
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment - WEEE Regulation 2006 The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) came into force in January 2007.
The WEEE Directive aims to both reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage everyone to reuse, recycle and recover it. The WEEE Directive also aims to improve the environmental performance of businesses that manufacture, supply, use, recycle and recover electrical and electronic equipment.MediMax Global is committed to these directives and by constantly reviewing company policies and procedures and working closely with original equipment manufacturers. Thereby ensuring that all waste generated is kept to an absolute minimum and where possible is recycled or disposed of in a responsible manner that complies with all Government guidelines and statutory obligations. MediMax Global also work closely with the public actively encouraging them and helping them in the correct recycling procedures of their old electrical electronic equipment.
Advice to the Public: The public should no longer throw their old electrical electronic products into the normal refuse bins but should separate the items and either take them for recycling to an authorised recycling centre or return them to retailers. Products sold by MediMax Global that are covered by the WEEE directive are clearly marked with a crossed out wheelie bin symbol.
GDPR and PECR GUIDANCE FOR MEDIMAX GLOBAL USERS
A number of our customers, subscribers and registrants have enquired about the General Data Protection Regulations ('GDPR') that are to be introduced on 25 May 2018. This document aims to provide the relevant information required, including links to information provided by the Information Commissioner's Office ('ICO') and the Direct Marketing Association ('DMA').
The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations ('PECR') apply to marketing emails and remain in force unchanged on 25 May 2018 as they have been since 2003 (and last amended in 2016).
GDPR is concerned with the storage and processing of personal data including names and email addresses. PECR is concerned with email marketing. An email cannot be sent without storing and processing the personal data concerned and GDPR applies to this aspect of sending emails. GDPR allows storage and processing of personal data under six lawful grounds. For many businesses, the most applicable of the possible grounds is "Legitimate Interests".
The Guidance from the ICO on Legitimate Interests can be found here:
Further useful information can be found at:
The above article, under the heading "Can we use legitimate interests for our marketing activities?" states that Recital 47 of the GDPR says:
"...The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest."
The information at the following link describes the process of completing a Legitimate Interests Assessment ('LIA'):
Other Useful Information
he DMA website includes the following useful links:
GDPR Guidance for Marketers at:
GDPR for Marketers: The essentials at:
With regard to direct marketing, the above article states on page 18 that:
"During a parliamentary debate, the DMA advocated that a business' legitimate interests were recognised alongside the customer's right to privacy. Communicating to prospects and customers is the
essential lifeblood of commercial success so direct marketing is recognised specifically in the text as a legitimate interest in Recital 47.
"Marketers have always been able to rely on the legitimate interests condition as an alternative to consent under Data Protection Act 1998 ('DP 98'), in cases where the Privacy and Electronic
Communications Regulations (PECR) - which preceded DP 98 - wasn't applicable. However, this legal basis was not stated as explicitly in DP 98 as it is in the GDPR.
"Legitimate interests is one of six legal grounds in the new law that allows the processing of personal data. All of these legal bases are equally valid. The specific information needed for valid consent are rigorous, which can make it problematic to use for direct marketing activities. The DMA expects legitimate interests to be a widely used lawful basis for processing, particularly given the high level of
flexibility given to organisations in explaining and documenting their rationale for processing activity.
"The GDPR says: 'The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest' (see Recital 47 of the GDPR text for further information).
"In addition, the GDPR says that processing is lawful if it is: 'Necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third-party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual which require protection of personal information, in particular where the individual is a child' (see Article 6.1(f) of the GDPR text for further information)' ".
With regards to fines, on page 17 of the above article, it states that:
"The Information Commissioner has told us [the DMA] that the GDPR is not about seeking to issue as many fines as possible. For them, GDPR and its implementation is about putting the consumer and
citizen first. Focusing on big fines makes for great headlines, but thinking that GDPR is about crippling financial punishment misses the point. The ICO policy has always been one of proportionality: it would much rather educate an organisation and see it correct bad practice before even talking about fines. Even with its current enforcement powers, the ICO has never issued the maximum fine of £500,000.
The size of the organisation, the impact of the breach and whether or not sufficient policies and procedures are in place to justify action (accountability) will all be taken into account".
Information you must display in your privacy notice includes:
- Name of organisation
- DPO contact details, where applicable

- How long the personal data will be kept
- Inform people of their rights and how they would exercise them
- A reminder that people can withdraw consent
- Inform people that they can complain to the ICO
- Information about automated decision-making, including profiling
This information must be displayed at a minimum in "clear and plain language" and must be relevant to the audience (see Aricle 12 of the GDPR text for further informatiom).
