Much of the personal data we hold will have been provided by you, but some may come from other external sources, such as referees or doctors.

· Manage and process your application and for general recruitment purposes, on the basis that it is in the legitimate interests of the Company to do so;

We may transfer personal data about you to other Company offices for purposes connected with your recruitment application or the management of the Company’s business. At the date of this Privacy Notice, the Company has offices and staff in London, Manchester, Paris, Madrid, New York (USA) and Kiev (Ukraine).


We may use third party data processors to manage personal data in connection with our recruitment processes, who may be located within the EU (as well as Switzerland, and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein where personal data protection rules apply very similar to those in the EU) or elsewhere. Whenever your data is transferred to other places, we have in place safeguards to ensure the security of your data which may include:


·      A decision from the European Commission that such places have adequate laws to protect your data;

·       European Commission approved standard contract clauses for other transfers.


Where this is required by law, we will provide a copy of the safeguards applicable to your personal data, if requested.


At our discretion, we may disclose CCTV footage and/or personal data in response to valid requests from the police and other statutory law enforcement agencies or if otherwise

required by law.


6.How long do we keep your personal data?


Your personal data will be stored only for as long as it is needed for the purpose for which it was obtained.


In any event, we need to keep data as follows:


a)     For job applicants and candidates: not more than six months after the role has been filled (unless you ask or authorise us to keep it for longer)

b)    For CCTV footage, no longer than 30 days.


7.  What are your rights?


You have a number of rights with regard to your personal data, i.e.:


·       To ask for access to it;

·       To ask for errors in it to be corrected;

·       To ask for it to be erased (the “right to be forgotten”);

·      If not erased (e.g. if it is required to be kept for legal reasons), then to ask us to restrict its processing;

·       To object to its processing for specific purposes;

·      To ask for a copy to take (or have us provide) to another data controller. Please note that this would relate only to information provided by you – information the Company has received from others or created internally would not be covered.


We are not usually required to ask for your consent for the processing of personal data, as it is necessary for the reasons set out in this Privacy Notice. However, where we do rely on any consent that you have given, then you are always allowed to withdraw your consent at any time (though the processing that took place before withdrawal will still be legal).


In certain circumstances it may not be possible for these rights to be exercised in full or at all as they are closely related to your application or applicable employment laws. We will explain any actions we have taken or not taken in relation to any request you make.


We are always available through the contacts in Section 2 above to help resolve any issues or doubts you may have in relation to processing of your personal data. If you believe that your rights have not been respected at any time then you also have a right to complain to the Supervisory Authority in your country (in the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office

– “ICO”; in France, the Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libertés – “CNIL”; in Spain, the Agencia Española de Protección de Datos – “AEPD”) to ask them for a resolution.


8.Consequences of not providing (or updating) data


Other than where we have asked for your consent for data processing, processing of personal data is necessary for the reasons set out in this Privacy Notice. If you wish to object

to processing of personal data relating to you, or require us to delete it, this could lead to us being unable to comply with the application process or other legal obligations. If so we will tell you about the potential effects of our not having the proper data in those circumstances.
