Our Lawful Basis for Processing Data

We are entitled to process your personal data where it is necessary for the performance of the contract for services or contract of service to which you are a party, either directly with us or, in some circumstances, with a third party such as an employment business. This includes any processing which may be necessary at the preliminary stage prior to you entering into such contract.

We may also process your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, such as the obligation to maintain suitable business and financial records.

In accordance with Article 9 (2)(b) of the GDPR, we are entitled to process your sensitive personal data where we need to carry out our obligations or exercise our rights in the field of employment. Under very limited circumstances, we may also ask for consent to process your sensitive personal data.

Where We Process Personal Data

Your personal data is primarily held and processed by us in the United Kingdom.

In addition to our database, we may use Microsoft OneDrive to store personal data relating to you. We have ascertained that this data is kept within a data centre within the United Kingdom.

We have put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your data is only transferred to jurisdictions with enforceable data subject rights and effective legal remedies in respect of data privacy breaches. We will therefore only transfer your personal data to jurisdictions outside of the EEA where:

  • There are binding corporate rules in place regarding the transfer of such data within the Group, in accordance with Article 47 of the GDPR. This means that the data transfer is between group companies and those group companies have agreed to share that data in accordance with the rules specified by the European Commission.
  • The European Commission has made an adequacy decision in respect of such jurisdiction. This means that the European Commission has pre-approved the data privacy regime in the relevant non-EEA country. At present, the European Commission-approved jurisdictions are Andorra, Argentina, Canada (commercial organisations), Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland, Uruguay and the US (limited to the Privacy Shield framework).
  • The transfer of data is subject to the model contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission. This means that we have a data-sharing agreement in place which complies with the requirements set out by the European Commission; or
  • You have expressly given informed consent to the transfer of such data.

Parties with Whom We May Share Data

We may share your personal data for legitimate purposes with:

  • Our directors, officers and employees where it is appropriate and necessary to do so;
  • Where applicable, any third-party company through which you are contracting;
  • Third-Party Services Providers;
  • Any third-party who you have engaged and to whom you have confirmed that we may provide personal data, such as your bank or mortgage advisor;
  • Our clients, where it is reasonable and necessary to do so e.g. where we provide your business contact information or, in the event of a dispute, provide internal communications or explanations as to the actions which you have taken;
  • Any third party to which we may be planning to transfer or sell a relevant part of our business;
  • Governmental departments and agencies where we are permitted or required by law to do so.

If we share your information with any third party, we will require them to respect your data privacy and only use your data for the purpose for which it was provided or otherwise as permitted by law.

Automated Decision Making

Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal information to make a decision without human intervention. All decisions which are made in the course of our business processes involve human intervention. We do not therefore expect to make any decisions about you using automated means.

Data Security

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. Details of these measures may be obtained from the Data Protection Manager.

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.

Data Retention

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. 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.

If you are an Applicant, we will usually retain your personal data for one year from the date on which the recruitment decision is made, unless you become an Employee, in which case the provisions below shall apply.

If you are an Employee, our standard data retention period is six years from the date on which our working relationship ends. After this time, we will usually remove your personal data from our records. Where we are required to keep any information (i) for auditing or compliance purposes (ii) to comply with our contractual obligations to third parties or (iii) in respect of any potential or actual legal proceedings, we shall keep your data for as long as is strictly necessary for these purposes, which is typically for seven years from the date on which our working relationship ends.

In some circumstances we may completely 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.

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

Your duty to inform us of changes. It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with personal information. Under certain circumstances, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information (Subject Access Request). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal information but we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to remove or remove personal information where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed or you have objected to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and you object on “grounds relating to your particular situation.”
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to block or suppress the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it or if you have also objected to the processing as above.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party when the processing is based on consent and carried out by automated means. This right is not applicable to any data processing carried out by ACME.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please contact the Data Protection Manager in writing. We will consider your request and confirm the actions which we have taken in response to such request.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is an appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact the Data Protection Manager. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. We will confirm the actions which we have taken in respect of any such request.

If you are unhappy with any aspect of the manner in which we have processed your personal data or dealt with your decision to exercise any of the rights set out in this section, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office in the United Kingdom. Their details are:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF
