You may also have similar rights with our third party partners and you should consult their privacy statements or policies and/or contact them for further information.
7. SECURITY AND HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We employ security measures to protect your Personal Information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. Unless otherwise instructed by you, we will retain your Personal Information for only as long as we require for the purposes for which it was collected. Once the relevant purpose has been satisfied, we will securely delete or anonymise your Personal Information unless we are required to retain a copy of such information under applicable law.
Please note, that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and, although we will take steps to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted via the Website and/or our apps – any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
8. THIRD PARTIES
We may share your Personal Information with third parties where you have given us your explicit consent or it is necessary (i) for the performance of the services you have requested – for example we will need to share your Personal Information with potential employers in order to arrange interviews, (ii) for us to comply with our legal obligations or (iii) for our legitimate business interests.
We may carry out criminal record checks on you or receive information about such checks as part of your placement or application for a role and we may need to share this with your potential employers. These measures are taken for the purpose of the legitimate interests of your future employer(s) and/or for the purpose of compliance with law.
If we (or any part of us) enter into a joint venture or are sold, transferred to or merged with another business entity or if our business structure changes, your Personal Information may be disclosed to the new business partners or owners, so that they and we can continue to provide the services you have requested. Your Personal Information will still only be used in accordance with this Privacy Statement as in force from time to time.
10. LINKS TO THIRD PARTIES
Links from our site to external websites do not mean we endorse these websites. We advise you to read the privacy statement applicable to each third party site you visit and we will not accept any responsibility for or liability in respect of either the contents or your use of these third party sites.
11. TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OUTSIDE THE EEA
The Personal Information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored on our servers in [the UK] and we take steps to protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
In processing your Personal Information, it may be necessary for us to transfer your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be accessed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Statement and the Data Protection Legislation when it is processed in, or otherwise accessed from, a location outside the EEA. This means that we will only transfer your Personal Information to third parties outside the
EEA if that third party (a) is situated in a country that has been confirmed by the European Commission to provide adequate protection to Personal Information, (b) has agreed (by way of written contract incorporating the "model clauses" as approved by the European Commission or by some other form of data transfer mechanism approved by the European Commission) to provide all protections to your Personal Information as required by the Data Protection Legislation or (c) we have your explicit consent to do so. Where any transfer takes place under a written contract, you have the right to request a copy of that contract and may do so by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the UK is no longer a part of the EEA, references in this Privacy Statement to the EEA shall mean the EEA and the UK.
By submitting your Personal Information to us, you acknowledge this transfer, storing or processing of your Personal Information.
Should you have any queries or complaints in relation to how we use your Personal Information, please contact us at email@example.com. Should you wish to take any complaints or queries further, you have the right to contact the Information Commissioner's Office regarding such issues.
13. CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT
We may change this Privacy Statement from time to time and any changes will be posted to this page on our Website [and, where appropriate, notified to you when you next access our Website or our apps, or otherwise request services from us] therefore you should continue to check this page to ensure you are happy with any changes. It is your responsibility to ensure you are happy with any revised terms and by continuing to use our Website and/or our apps, request services from us or otherwise engage with us, you will be deemed to have accepted any revised terms.
