It is also in our legitimate interest as a responsible employment business to be able to contact your designated family member and/or friend in the event that there is an emergency when you are at work. It is also in your interests that we are able to inform your designated contact of any emergency. In certain circumstances it may also be necessary for us to do so in order to protect your vital interests.

It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to enter into a contract to provide work-finding services to you as such contracts form the basis of our business.

We want to stay in touch with you! Sometimes we may need to use the information that we have about you in order to respond to your questions or let you know about important changes.

Protecting you and others from harm
We may use your information where it is necessary to protect your interests, or the interests of others. This may include in the event of criminality such as identity theft, piracy or fraud.

How we use particularly sensitive personal information
We will use your particularly sensitive personal information in the following ways:
Information about criminal convictions
We may process information about criminal convictions where the role available requires us to do so. We may only use information relating to criminal convictions where the law allows us to do so. This will usually be where such processing is necessary to carry out our obligations and provided we do so in line with our data protection policy.
You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you.
We may share your personal information with:
All our clients and third party providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect any of your personal information which we share with them. We do not allow our third party 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 may use third party service providers to process some information who may be based or may have sub-processors, resources or data processing facilities outside the European Economic Area (for example we use a CRM system to provide client relationship management services who are based/use servers/have sub-processors in the US. Any such transfers shall be affected in accordance with our obligations under data protection legislation with appropriate safeguards including where there are adequacy decisions, standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission or the ICO. For example for most companies we will enter a data processing agreement incorporating the model contract clauses. Further, in the U.S.A. companies may be certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which ensures that your data will be processed and protected in compliance with EU and UK law and regulations. If you require further information about any protective measures in relation to such arrangements, please contact us on the details given above.
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.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal information are available separately in our retention tables. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you are no longer an employee, worker or contractor of the company we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy and applicable laws and regulations.
