How is your personal information collected?
We collect personal information about our casual workers and employees through the application and recruitment process, either directly from candidates or sometimes through an employment agency. We may sometimes collect additional information from third parties including former employers and, if you are an SIA licence holder, credit reference agencies. We will collect additional personal information in the course of job-related activities throughout the period you are working for us.

If you fail to provide personal information
If you fail to provide certain personal information when requested we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you or we may be prevented from complying with our legal and regulatory obligations.

Change of purpose
We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use if for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Do we need your consent to use particularly sensitive information?
We do not need your consent if we use your personal information in accordance with our written policy to carry out legal and regulatory obligations or exercise specific rights in the field of employment law.

Data sharing
We will share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so. We require third party service providers to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We limit the extent of the information shared to a strict “need to know” basis.

We may need to share personal information with third parties for example:
- Our company accountant
- Our IT support providers
- Our insurance company
- Data storage provider
- Awarding bodies
- Regulatory bodies such as SIA & PSA
- Legal, statutory, public authorities & government bodies
- Clients

Data security
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition we limit access to your personal information to those who need to access it and that it is held and transferred securely.

Data retention
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. The information will be used throughout your time with Eventsec Ltd and will be retained for 7 years after you have left the company. For unsuccessful applicants information will be deleted after 3 years.

Your duty to inform us of change
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances the law grants you specific rights. These are summarised below.
Please note that your rights may be limited and subject to restrictions in certain situations:
- Request access to your personal information
- Request correction of your personal information
- Request of erasure of your personal information
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information
- Request the transfer of your personal information to another party
- Right to withdraw consent

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party please contact us via the details listed below.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

You have the right to make a complaint at any time if you believe that your data protection rights may have been breached, and we have been unable to resolve your concern to the Information Commissioner’s Office / The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner.

What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us to confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information. This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that your personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Changes to this privacy notice
We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of personal information.
