The personal data we collect will be that provided by you, such as your name, business email address and telephone number, and your place of work. If you apply for work we will also collect personal data about your previous experience, education, and referees. You may ask us to disclose the personal data we store about you.

What is the lawful basis of our processing of your data?
We have audited our processing activities having regard to: the groups of individuals whose data is processed; the types of data; the recipients of that data; the processing purposes; the retention strategy and the security measures.
The lawful basis of our processing is that it is –
- necessary to fulfil our legal obligations or our contractual obligations with you;
- necessary to further our legitimate interests which outweigh any privacy impact that is neither intrusive nor unexpected; or
- consented to by you on an explicit and informed basis.

Subject to any legal obligations we may have, you may ask us to delete any personal data we store about you. In such instances, please email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
Who has access to your personal data?
We are a very small organisation of only two employees. Your personal data is only accessed and used by those employees where it is necessary to fulfil the duties of their role. We will not sell or rent your personal data to third parties.
Third party service providers (e.g. IT contractors) may have access to your personal data on a strictly confidential basis and only in fulfilment of their contractual obligations to us.
How you can control the personal data we hold about you?
In respect of any personal data we hold about you have the right to request:
- a copy of that data;
- rectification of any inaccurate or incomplete data;
- erasure of that data where there is no legitimate interest or consent is withdrawn (subject to any legal obligations that may require us to retain data for a certain period of time).
We may use third party providers, Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin, to host our social media interactions. This Privacy Notice does not apply to them and you should consider their privacy notices.
Children and vulnerable adults
If you are aged 16 or under, please obtain your parent/guardian’s prior permission before disclosing personal data. If you are a vulnerable adult, please obtain independent guidance before disclosing personal data.
