We use the special category personal data we hold about you for a number of different purposes, which we list below. Data protection law prohibits us from processing any special category personal data unless we can satisfy at least one of the conditions laid down by data protection law. We also set out below the specific conditions we rely upon when processing special category data.

We use the special category personal data we hold about you for the following purposes:

In this case the condition we rely upon for processing the information is to monitor equality and diversity which is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, namely for the purposes of identifying or keeping under review the existence or absence of equality of opportunity or treatment between groups of people specified in relation to that category with a view to enabling such equality to be promoted or maintained

In these cases the condition we rely upon for processing the information is because it is necessary for the purposes of carrying out the obligations and exercising specific rights in the field of employment law and/or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and/or the processing is necessary for the assessment of your working capacity or medical diagnosis

Some of the personal data we request will be because we have a legal or contractual requirement to obtain and use the information or it is necessary for us to obtain the information to be able to enter into a contract with you, for example evidence of your right to work in the UK. Failure to provide such information will prevent us from employing or engaging you.

  1. Who do we share your information with?

Your personal data will be held by the HR department. Your personal data will be shared internally with other individuals and/or departments where this is reasonably necessary for the processing purposes set out in section 2 above. For example, it will be necessary to share some of your personal information with the Finance department in order to pay you.

From time to time we will need to share your information with external people and organisations. We will only do so where we have a legitimate or legal basis for doing so and in compliance with our obligations under data protection laws.

  1. International Transfer of Your Information

We do not transfer any of your personal data outside the European Economic Area.

  1. How long do we keep your information for?

To make sure we meet our legal data protection and privacy obligations, we only hold on to your information for as long as we actually need it for the purposes we acquired it in the first place.

In most cases, this means we will keep your information for as long as you are employed or engaged by us and for a period of 7 years thereafter. The reason for keeping your personal data for this length of time is to comply with HMRC requirements and because of the fact that some claims can be brought up to 6 years after your employment/engagement ends.

  1. Individual rights

Data protection legislation provides individuals with a number of different rights in relation to their data. For example, you have the right to ask us whether we hold information about you and if so, for us to give you certain details about that information and/or the information itself. Exercising this right is commonly known as a “subject access request”. Certain exemptions and conditions apply to this right.

There are other rights which you also may be able to exercise, such as the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified, to object to the processing of personal data, to the erasure of personal data or to have the processing of your personal data restricted as well as the right to have electronic data made portable. All these rights are subject to certain conditions and exemptions.

To obtain further information about these rights please see the ICO website - www.ico.gov.uk. If you wish to exercise any of these rights please contact the HR department.

  1. Ability to withdraw consent

Where your personal data is processed on the basis of your consent or explicit consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing at any time. You can do this by emailing privacy@leekes.co.uk. Any withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing of your personal data based on consent before the withdrawal is notified.

  1. Accuracy

If any of your personal details change during your employment/engagement you should contact a member of the HR team to notify them and provide them with the updated accurate information.

  1. Updates to this Privacy Policy

We review the ways we use your information regularly. In doing so, we may change what kind of information we collect, how we store it, who we share it with and how we
 act on it.

Consequently, we will need to change this privacy policy from time to time to keep it accurate and up-to-date.

We will keep this policy under regular review to ensure it is accurate and kept up to date. This policy was last updated on 12/03/18.
