GDPR – INFORMATION FOR CANDIDATES
Under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) you are entitled to be informed about the processing of personal data we request from you, hold on you, use or need to share.

The purposes – and legal bases – for the data processing
Categories under Law:

Types of Information we require:
1. Name, Address, Contact Telephone Numbers, your Qualifications

The period for which the data will be stored

The right of access to data
All persons are entitled to ask for, in writing, what information on them the company holds, and ask to see it (subject access request).
The Management (or any other nominated ‘Data Controller’) will usually provide the information without delay and in any case within 28 days. If the request or data is complex and we cannot do this within that timescale then we will advise you in writing as to the reason for the delay and provide the information not later than a further 2 months in duration.
We will not usually charge you for this unless your request is ‘manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive’
The right to request data rectification or erasure
You (the candidate) may challenge the accuracy of the data we hold, and also update information where it is found to be incorrect.
If you change your details, or if you notice a mistake through a subject access request, please advise us immediately so that we can rectify that data and ensure we hold the correct data on you.
The right to withdraw consent (when the legal basis for processing is consent)
If the legal basis for processing your data was only on the basis that you gave consent (for example looking for a job role, or giving us access to 3rd party contact details etc.), you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
If you wish to withdraw consent you must do this in writing, when we receive your withdrawal of consent we will confirm this to you along with the ways we will remove your data.
The source of the Data (where we might get this data from)
For employment purposes we will get your data from:
· You – on application, and throughout the employment
· Your previous employer(s)
· Home Office
· Any other appropriate government body (such as criminal record checks)
