The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Last updated: April 24, 2018

NI Ferry Site uses the AWS CloudFront CDN service for delivering content to our users from the cloud.  Amazon AWS is GDPR Compliant.  The following is copied from

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects European Union data subjects’ fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise and harmonize standards for data protection, security, and compliance.

AWS offers helpful information to customers and APN Partners, including several compliance reports from third-party auditors, who have verified our compliance with a variety of computer security standards and regulations, to prove the high levels of compliance AWS maintains for its infrastructure. These reports show our customers and APN Partners, that we are protecting their personal data they choose to process on AWS. A good examples of this are AWS’s ISO 27001, 27017, and 27018 compliance. ISO 27018 contains security controls that focuses on protection of personal data. Details on AWS’s ISO 27108 compliance can be found here:

AWS is also compliant with the CISPE Code of Conduct for data protection. CISPE is a coalition cloud infrastructure (also known as Infrastructure as a Service) providers who offer cloud services to customers in Europe. The CISPE Code of Conduct helps cloud customers and APN Partners ensure that their cloud infrastructure provider is using appropriate data protection standards to protect their data consistent with the GDPR. A few key benefits of the Code include:

  • Clarifying who is responsible for what when it comes to data protection: The Code of Conduct explains the role of both the provider and the customer under the GDPR, specifically within the context of cloud infrastructure services.
  • The Code of Conduct sets out what principles providers should adhere to: The Code of Conduct outlines the actions and commitments that providers should undertake to comply with the GDPR and help customers and APN Partners comply.
  • The Code of Conduct gives customers and APN Partners information, relating to data protection and data security, that they need to make decisions about compliance: The Code of Conduct requires providers to be transparent about the steps they are taking to deliver on their security commitments. These steps involve notifications relating to data breaches, data deletion, and third-party sub-processing, as well as law enforcement, and governmental requests. Customers and APN Partners can use this information to gain a full understanding of the high levels of security provided.

The NI Ferry Site (NIFS) / NI Ferry Media archive

The NIFS archive is a collection of 1000’s of documents and images held privately by the website owner which have been accumulated over a number of years.  Many of these items have not been published online before, or if they have been published they have disappeared along with the websites that hosted them.  It is intended that as much of this material shall be published online on this website as possible, however a significant proportion of the material has been donated meaning it is not always possible to identify if an item is copyrighted.

Whilst reasonable steps have been taken to ensure no copyright has been infringed, due to the nature of this material there is a possibility that an unintentional infringement may occur.  If you spot a breach of copyright, as with all material on this site, please contact the site administrator directly using the about menu on the menu bar so that the infringing material can be removed promptly.
