PROCESSING INFORMATION ABOUT YOU  

 We will only administer personal information in accordance with the lawful bases for processing. At least one of the following will apply when we process personal data:

consent: You have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose.

LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We consider that the basis for which we will process the data contained in the list above (see section above - details of information we will hold about you) is to enable us to consider whether we may wish to/prepare for entering into a contract or agreement with you and to enable us to comply with our legal obligations. Occasionally, we may process personal information about you to pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties, provided there is no good reason to protect your interests and your fundamental rights do not override those interests.

 The circumstances in which we will process your personal information are listed below:


·        making a decision about your recruitment or appointment

·        making decisions about terms and conditions, salary and other benefits

·        checking you are legally entitled to work in the UK

·        assessing qualifications for a particular job or task

·        education, training and development requirements

·        complying with health and safety obligations

·        preventing fraud

·        in order to fulfill equal opportunity monitoring or reporting obligations

 There may be more than one reason to validate the reason for processing your personal information.

 LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING "SPECIAL CATEGORIES” OF SENSITIVE DATA

"Special categories” of particularly sensitive personal information require higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information. We may process special categories of personal information in the following circumstances:

·        consent: You have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose.

·        contract: The processing is necessary for a contract we have with you, or because we have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract.

·        legal obligation: The processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations) and meets the obligations under our data protection policy.

·        vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.

·        public task: the processing is necessary for us to perform a task in the public interest or for our official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law. and meets the obligations under our data protection policy. (For example in the case of equal opportunities monitoring).

·        legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests (For example to assess your capacity to work on the grounds of ill health).

Occasionally, special categories of data may be processed where you are not capable of giving your consent, where you have already made the information public or in the course of legitimate business activities or legal obligations and in line with the appropriate safeguards.

Examples of the circumstances in which we will process special categories of your particularly sensitive personal information are listed below (this list is non-exhaustive): 

 

·        in order to protect your health and safety in the workplace

·        to assess your physical or emotional fitness to work

·        to determine if reasonable adjustments are needed or are in place

·        in order to fulfill equal opportunity monitoring or reporting obligations

 Where appropriate, we may seek your written authorisation to process special categories of data. Upon such an occasion we will endeavor to provide full and clear reasons at that time in order for you to make an informed decision. In any situation where consent is sought, please be advised that you are under no contractual obligation to comply with a request. Should you decline to consent you will not suffer a detriment.

 INFORMATION ABOUT CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS  

 We will only collect criminal convictions data where it is appropriate given the nature of your role and where the law permits us. This data will usually be collected at the recruitment stage, however, may also be collected during your engagement should you be successful.

 We may process such information to protect yours, or someone else’s, interests and you are not able to give your consent or we may process such information in cases where you have already made the information public.

 We anticipate that we will process information about criminal convictions.

  AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING 

We do not anticipate that any of our decisions will occur without human involvement. Should we use any form of automated decision making we will advise you of any change in writing.

 SHARING DATA  

 Your data will be shared with individuals within the Company where it is necessary for them to undertake their duties with regard to recruitment. This includes, for example, the HR department, those in the department where the vacancy is who are responsible for screening your application and interviewing you, the IT department.

 It may be necessary for us to share your personal data with a third party or third party service provider (including, but not limited to, contractors, agents or other associated/group companies) within, or outside of, the European Union (EU). Data sharing may arise due to a legal obligation, as part of the performance of a contract or in situations where there is another legitimate interest (including a legitimate interest of a third party) to do so.

 The list below identifies which activities are carried out by third parties on our behalf:

·        pension providers/administrators

·        IT services

·        legal advisors

·        security

·        insurance providers

 Data may be shared with 3rd parties in the following circumstances:

 

·        in relation to the maintenance support and/or hosting of data

·        to adhere with a legal obligation

·        in the process of obtaining advice and help in order to adhere with legal obligations.

 If data is shared, we expect third parties to adhere and comply with the GDPR and protect any data of yours that they process. We do not permit any third parties to process personal data for their own reasons. Where they process your data it is for a specific purpose according to our instructions.

We anticipate that we will transfer data to other countries.

 DATA SECURITY  

 As part of our commitment to protecting the security of any data we process, we have put the measures in place.

 In addition, we have put further security measures in place to avoid data from being accessed, damaged, interfered with, lost, damaged, stolen or compromised. In cases of a breach, or suspected breach, of data security you will be informed, as will any appropriate regulator, in accordance with our legal obligations.

 Any data that is shared with third parties is restricted to those who have a business need, in accordance with our guidance and in accordance with the duty of confidentiality. 

DATA RETENTION  

We anticipate that we will retain your data as part of the recruitment process for no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. We will keep your data for 12 months.

We have given consideration to the following in order to decide the appropriate retention period:

 

·        quantity

·        nature

·        sensitivity

·        risk of harm

·        purpose for processing

·        legal obligations

 If your application is not successful and we have not sought consent or you have not provided consent upon our request to keep your data for the purpose of future suitable job vacancies, we will keep your data for 12 months once the recruitment exercise ends.

If we have sought your consent to keep your data on file for future job vacancies, and you have provided consent, we will keep your data for 3 years once the recruitment exercise ends. At the end of this period, we will delete or destroy your data, unless you have already withdraw your consent to our processing of your data in which case it will be deleted or destroyed upon your withdrawal of consent.

At the end of the retention period, upon conclusion of any contract or agreement we may have with you, or until we are no longer legally required to retain it, it will be reviewed and deleted, unless there is some special reason for keeping it. Occasionally, we may continue to use data without further notice to you. This will only be the case where any such data is anonymised and you cannot be identified as being associated with that data.

If your application is successful, your data will be kept and transferred to the systems we administer for employees. We have a separate data protection compliance statement (privacy notice) for employees, workers and contractors which will be provided to you when applicable.

LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

We consider that the basis for which we will process the data contained in the list above (see section above - details of information we will hold about you) is to enable us to consider whether we may wish to/prepare for entering into a contract or agreement with you and to enable us to comply with our legal obligations. Occasionally, we may process personal information about you to pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties, provided there is no good reason to protect your interests and your fundamental rights do not override those interests.

 The circumstances in which we will process your personal information are listed below:


·        making a decision about your recruitment or appointment

·        making decisions about terms and conditions, salary and other benefits

·        checking you are legally entitled to work in the UK

·        assessing qualifications for a particular job or task

 There may be more than one reason to validate the reason for processing your personal information.

 LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING "SPECIAL CATEGORIES” OF SENSITIVE DATA

"Special categories” of particularly sensitive personal information require higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information. We may process special categories of personal information in the following circumstances:

(For example in the case of equal opportunities monitoring).

·        legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests (For example to assess your capacity to work on the grounds of ill health).

Occasionally, special categories of data may be processed where you are not capable of giving your consent, where you have already made the information public or in the course of legitimate business activities or legal obligations and in line with the appropriate safeguards.

Examples of the circumstances in which we will process special categories of your particularly sensitive personal information are listed below (this list is non-exhaustive): 

 

·        in order to protect your health and safety in the workplace

·        to assess your physical or emotional fitness to work

·        to determine if reasonable adjustments are needed or are in place

·        in order to fulfill equal opportunity monitoring or reporting obligations

 Where appropriate, we may seek your written authorisation to process special categories of data. Upon such an occasion we will endeavor to provide full and clear reasons at that time in order for you to make an informed decision. In any situation where consent is sought, please be advised that you are under no contractual obligation to comply with a request. Should you decline to consent you will not suffer a detriment.
