We may transfer your data outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA“).
Some of those countries have a European Commission adequacy decision, which means they are considered to offer an adequate level of data protection.
Other countries do not have the same level of legal protection as countries in the EEA, or with an adequacy decision. If we do transfer your data in this way, we will take steps to ensure that it is protected to the same levels that apply in the EEA. This may include, for example, ensuring that the organisation receiving the data is registered with the EU-US Privacy Shield (in the case of transfers to the USA), or that we use the EU’s model contractual clauses.
We have a data retention policy, which clearly sets out how long we keep data for, and for what reasons.
We will keep your data only for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purpose/s for which it was collected in the first place, i.e. as set out in this notice.
For example, if you apply to one of our job vacancies, we will keep your personal information for a period of 12 months from the date of our decision for compliance purposes, to enable us to contact you in relation to your application.
This notice sets out (above) how we use your data. Under the GDPR, controllers must have a valid lawful basis for each processing activity that they undertake. This section sets out our lawful basis for each activity.
|Activity||Lawful basis under the GDPR|
|To deal with and respond to your enquiry if you contact us through our Site or otherwise||Legitimate interests|
|To review and deal with your job application, and contact you in relation to it||Legitimate interests|
|To contact you about updates, news and other job vacancies (if you consent to this)||Consent|
In each case where we have identified legitimate interests as the legal basis for our processing, we have conducted a legitimate interests assessment.
Under the GDPR, you have a number of rights. We explain these rights below.
Right of access – You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the personal information that we hold about you, and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Right of rectification – If personal information that we hold about you is not accurate or is out of date and requires amendment or correction you have a right to have the data rectified or completed.
Right of erasure – In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that personal information we hold about you is erased (e.g. if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed).
Right to object to or restrict processing – In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal information. For example, if we are processing your information on the basis of our legitimate interests, and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your rights and interests.
Right of data portability – In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
Right to withdraw consent – In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.
