The company is required under data protection legislation to notify employees of the information contained in this privacy statement. Please ensure that you read this notice (sometimes referred to as a “privacy statement”) and any other similar notice the company may provide to you from time to time when we collect or process personal information about you.

The company aims to be clear when personal data is collected and to not do anything that is not reasonably expected. Please also refer to the Data Protection Policy and Schedule to Privacy Statement.

Data protection principles

We will comply with the data protection principles when gathering and using personal information, as set out in our Data Protection Policy.

About the information we collect and hold

The table set out in the attached Schedule of Information we collect and hold summarises the information we collect and hold, how and why we do so, how we use it and with whom it may be shared.

We may also need to share some of the categories of personal information set out in The schedule about Information we collect and hold with other parties, such as external contractors and our professional advisers and potential purchasers of some or all of our business or on a re-structuring. Usually, information will be anonymised, but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations. We may also be required to share some personal information with our regulators or as required to comply with the law.

We seek to ensure that our information collection and processing is always proportionate. We will notify you of any changes to information we collect or to the purposes for which we collect and process it.

Where information may be held

Information may be held at our offices and third-party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents. Information may be transferred internationally to other countries around the world, including countries that do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the UK, for the reasons described above. We have security measures in place to seek to ensure that there is appropriate security for information we hold.

How long we keep your information

We keep your information during and after your employment for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal information is processed.

Keeping your personal information secure

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
