request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. this enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
request erasure of your personal data. this enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. you also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. you also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. in some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
request restriction of processing of your personal data. this enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. however, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. we will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

1. process it fairly, lawfully and in a clear, transparent way;
2. collect your data only for reasons that we find proper for the course of your employment in ways that have been explained to you;
3. only use it in the way that we have told you about;
4. ensure it is correct and up to date;
5. keep your data for only as long as we need it;
6. process it in a way that ensures it will not be used for anything that you are not aware of or have consented to (as appropriate), lost or destroyed.

1. your personal details including your name, address, date of birth, email address, phone numbers;
2. your photograph; and other copies of your likeness such as videography;
4. marital status;
5. whether or not you have a disability;
6. information included on your cv including references, education history and employment history;
7. documentation relating to your right to work in the uk;

how we collect your data
we collect data about you in a variety of ways including the information you would normally include in a cv or a job application cover letter, or notes made by our recruiting officers during a recruitment interview. further information will be collected directly from you when you complete forms at the start of your employment, for example, your bank and next of kin details. other details may be collected directly from you in the form of official documentation such as your driving licence, passport or other right to work evidence.
in some cases, we will collect data about you from third parties, such as employment agencies, former employers when gathering references or credit reference agencies.
personal data is kept in personnel files or within the company’s hr and it systems.
why we process your data
the law on data protection allows us to process your data for certain reasons only:
in order to perform the employment contract that we are party to;
in order to carry out legally required duties;
in order for us to carry out our legitimate interests;
to protect your interests; and,
where something is done in the public interest.
all of the processing carried out by us falls into one of the permitted reasons. generally, we will rely on the first three reasons set out above to process your data.
we need to collect your data to ensure we are complying with legal requirements such as:
carrying out checks in relation to your right to work in the uk and
making reasonable adjustments for disabled employees.
we also collect data so that we can carry out activities which are in the legitimate interests of the company. we have set these out below:
making decisions about who to offer employment to;
making decisions about salary and other benefits;
assessing training needs;
dealing with legal claims made against us.
special categories of data – only used for equal opportunities monitoring so if this is not carried out, this section can be deleted.
special categories of data are data relating to your:
trade union membership; and,
genetic and biometric data.
we must process special categories of data in accordance with more stringent guidelines. most commonly, we will process special categories of data when the following applies:
you have given explicit consent to the processing
we must process the data in order to carry out our legal obligations
we must process data for reasons of substantial public interest
you have already made the data public.
we will use your special category data solely for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring.
we do not need your consent if we use special categories of personal data in order to carry out our legal obligations or exercise specific rights under employment law. however, we may ask for your consent to allow us to process certain particularly sensitive data. if this occurs, you will be made fully aware of the reasons for the processing. as with all cases of seeking consent from you, you will have full control over your decision to give or withhold consent and there will be no consequences where consent is withheld. consent, once given, may be withdrawn at any time. there will be no consequences where consent is withdrawn.
criminal conviction data
we will only collect criminal conviction 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, it may also be collected during your employment should you be successful in obtaining employment. we use criminal conviction data to assess whether an individual can be offered specific work where criminal conviction data may be relevant.
if you do not provide your data to us
one of the reasons for processing your data is to allow us to carry out an effective recruitment process. whilst you are under no obligation to provide us with your data, we may not able to process, or continue with (as appropriate), your application.
sharing your data
your data will be shared with colleagues within the company where it is necessary for them to undertake their duties with regard to recruitment. this includes, for example, the talent/hr department, those in the department where the vacancy is who responsible for screening your application and interviewing you, the it department where you require access to our systems to undertake any assessments requiring it equipment.
in some cases, we will collect data about you from third parties, such as employment agencies.
your data will be shared with third parties if you are successful in your job application. in these circumstances, we will share your data, for example, in order to obtain references from previous employers; obtain a criminal records check; process your payroll; issue references regarding your employment if you have left; etc.
we do not share your data with bodies outside of the european economic area.
protecting your data
we are aware of the requirement to ensure your data is protected against accidental loss or disclosure, destruction and abuse. we have implemented processes to guard against such.
where we share your data with third parties, we provide written instructions to them to ensure that your data are held securely and in line with gdpr requirements. third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.
