GES Employment Practices Page 4 of 4 Data Privacy Notice – Job Applicants January 2019 How does the organisation protect data? The organisation takes the security of your data seriously. It has internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties. For how long does the organisation keep data? If your application for employment is unsuccessful, the organisation will hold your data on file for 12 months after the end of the relevant recruitment process for consideration for future employment opportunities. At the end of that period or once you withdraw your consent, your data is deleted or destroyed. 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 periods for which your data will be held will be provided to you in a new privacy notice. Your rights As a data subject, you have a number of rights. You can: • access and obtain a copy of your data on request; • require the organisation to change incorrect or incomplete data; • require the organisation to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing; • object to the processing of your data where the organisation is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing; and • ask the organisation to stop processing data for a period if data is inaccurate or there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override the organisation's legitimate grounds for processing data. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, visit this link: - Enquiry.html. You can make a subject access request by completing the organisation's form for making a subject access request. If you believe that the organisation has not complied with your data protection rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner. What if you do not provide personal data? You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to the organisation during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information, the organisation may not be able to process your application properly or at all. If you are not successful in your applicant for a role at GES and do not wish for your details to be retained for any future roles. Please email and asked for your details to be removed in line with statutory guidance.
