This Privacy Notice covers how we collect, use, store and disclose the data that you supply to us and your rights to access, amend and remove data that we hold about you. We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information and we will always treat you and your data with the respect you deserve.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We will collect, store, and use the following categories of personal information about you:
There are “special categories” of more sensitive personal data which require a higher level of protection. We may also collect, store and use the following “special categories” of more sensitive personal information:
We collect personal information about potential employees, workers and contractors through the application and recruitment process, either directly from candidates or sometimes from an employment agency or background check provider. We may sometimes collect additional information from third parties including former employers, credit reference agencies or other background check agencies such as the Criminal Records Bureau and the Driver Vehicle Licensing Association. If successful, we may collect additional personal information in the course of job-related activities throughout the period of you working for us.
We need all the categories of information identified above primarily to allow us to to comply with legal obligations[**] and in the majority of cases we may use your personal information to pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties[***] (provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests). The situations in which we will process your personal information are identified below. We have indicated by [asterisks] the purpose or purposes for which we are processing or will process your personal information, as well as indicating which categories of data are involved within the table below.
Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.
If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to make a decision as to your suitability for the role for which you have applied.
“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:
Less commonly, we may process this type of information where it is needed in relation to legal claims or where it is needed to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public. We may also process such information about members or former members in the course of legitimate business activities with the appropriate safeguards.
