We may use information about your fitness or disability status to consider whether we need to provide appropriate adjustments during the recruitment process, for example whether adjustments need to be made during a test or interview or at any other stage in the process.
We do not envisage that we will normally process information about criminal convictions. However, we will ask you to declare if you have been convicted of an offence that has not yet been spent or have any prosecutions pending and may ask for your permission to apply for a basic DBS check.
You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.
Why might we share your personal information with third parties?
We will only share your personal information with the following third parties, specifically other UK group companies for the purposes of processing your application. This is generally if you would be suitable for other job vacancies in the group. All our third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long will you use my information for?
We will usually retain your personal information for a period of 6 months after we have made the relevant appointment, subject to any additional legal obligations and in accordance with any legitimate interests of the company. We retain your personal information for that period so that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds and that we have conducted the recruitment exercise in a fair and transparent way. After this period, we will securely destroy your personal information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
