Data Privacy Notice
As part of any recruitment process ASG collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants and candidates. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use that data and to meeting our data protection obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations.
What information does the Practice collect?
The Practice may collect this information in a variety of ways. For example, data might be contained in CVs or portfolios, or obtained from your passport or other identity documents, or collected through interviews or other forms of assessment, or online tests, such as KnowledgeSmart (Revit testing) or psychometric tests.
On occasion the Practice may also need to collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers, or where applicable information from criminal records checks. The organisation will seek information from third parties only once a job offer has been made to you and accepted by you specifically and will inform you that it is doing so.
Data will be stored in a range of different places, including on your paper application record, in email or outlook calendars and paper files on occasions and particularly when you have been selected for interview.
Why does the Practice process this personal data?
In some cases, the Practice needs to process data to ensure that it is complying with its legal obligations. For example, we are required to check a successful candidate's eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts.
The Practice has a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate's suitability for employment and decide on offering the position to the best candidate for the role.
The Practice may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against any legal claims.
The Practice may ask candidates to provide information about a disability or disabilities which may be necessary for reasonable adjustments to be considered when visiting the Practice, for signing in the visitors register or accessing the building for example. This is to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
If your application is unsuccessful, the organisation will keep your personal data on file for 3 months in case there are future employment opportunities for which you may be suited. If the Company should need to retain your information for longer the Company will seek to gain your consent to do so. You are free to withdraw your consent at any time by emailing email@example.com
Who has access to data?
The Practice will not share your data with third parties, unless your application for employment is successful and it makes you an offer of employment. The Practice will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you.
We will not share your personal data with countries outside of the EU unless required to obtain references from former employers based outside of the EU and where that organisation can provide evidence of compliance with the conditions under the GDPR legislation.
How does the organisation protect data?
Job applications received via email are held securely on our email server, and only made available to the appropriate authorised employees to perform their duties, for example HR and/or the hiring manager. If an email is deleted it is held for 14 days on the server before it is purged from the system. We also backup the mailbox that received the application securely.
Applications are received in a dedicated recruitment email inbox and also stored in a secure location on the network accessible by the Head of HR and hiring managers only so that applications are not emailed unnecessarily. All data access is strictly controlled using the least access privilege approach and in addition, we have deployed a number of systems to ensure your data remains safe via our Cyber Security Strategy.
For how long does the organisation keep data?
If your application for employment is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during your employment. The basis and periods for which your data will be held will be provided to you in a new employee privacy notice.
If you believe that the Practice has not complied with your data protection rights or you would like to exercise any of these rights, please take it up with our internal data protection coordinator by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you remain unsatisfied and you feel that your rights are still compromised you can complain to the Information Commissioners Officer.
What if you do not provide personal data?
Data Breaches and reporting
Data breaches will be reported to the Information Commissioner Office (ICO) by the data protection coordinator who will make every effort to call the dedicated personal data breach helpline on 0303 123 1113 as soon as he becomes aware of the breach.
