About Q-Data

Q-Data was founded in 2014. We have been fortunate to work with over two hundred and fifty private and public businesses and organisations, addressing the quality of data, utilising cleansed data for marketing campaigns, and generating high volume leads. We captured every single statistic relating to over six million lines of data. In addition, we recorded the result from every dataset and marketing campaign and captured Return On Investment. This data provides us with valuable insights. 

The legal obligations enforceable by the GDPR on the 25th May 2018 introduced new implications for us as Data Processors. Data controllers experienced uncertainty as they addressed how the regulations changed the ways in which they were responsible for personal data. There are 99 GDPR articles and 170 corresponding recitals to digest!

Our focus turned to data compliance. By ensuring data processing activities are lawful, data compliance becomes baked into the strategy and mindset of the companies or organisations we work with and most importantly, we can demonstrate that accurate, compliant data returns value to our clients. 

The 'Q' in Q-Data stands for 'Quality' and represents the hallmark of accurate, compliant data we want our clients to achieve.

Summary of Knowledge and Experience

We have developed a data protection framework alongside a suite of pre-filled templates, ensuring compliance can be tailored seamlessly.

"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected."
