Legal Basis and Legitimate Interest for Processing Personal Data  

We will primarily use Personal Data about you in the following circumstances:  

  • Where we have a legal basis for processing Personal Data about you; 
  • When necessary for the execution of your employment contract; 
  • Where it is necessary to ensure compliance with a legal obligation (including, about Sensitive Data, obligations under employment law); and

We may also process Personal Data about you in the following situations:

  • Where it is necessary to protect your or someone else’s vital interests; 
  • Where it is necessary for us to defend, prosecute or make a legal claim against you, us, or a third party; and 
  • In the case of Sensitive Data, where you have made the information public. 

There may be more than one purpose that justifies our use of Personal Data about you in any particular circumstance. 

We will only use Personal Data about you for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use Personal Data about you for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the basis that allows us to do so. If you fail to provide certain Personal Data when requested, we may not be able to review your application, or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations.

  • Corporate Transactions: Personal Data may be disclosed to third parties in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a merger, sale of any or all of our company assets or shares, reorganization, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by an affiliate or third party, or in the event of a bankruptcy or related or similar proceedings. 

Transfer of Personal Data 

The Company may transfer Personal Data throughout the world to fulfil the purposes described above. This may include transferring Personal Data to other countries (including countries located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”)) and/or the United Kingdom (“UK”) that have different data protection regimes and which are not deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for EEA-origin or UK-origin Personal Data. To ensure that Personal Data about you is sufficiently protected when transferred outside the EEA and/or the UK, the Company has put in place the following measure: a data transfer agreement incorporating the EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses and the UK Standard Contractual Clauses (collectively the “SCCs”). A copy of the SCCs can be provided upon request. 

Data Security 

The Company will take appropriate measures to protect Personal Data in accordance with data privacy and security laws and regulations (“Data Protection Laws”), including requiring that service providers take appropriate measures to ensure the confidentiality and security of such data.

The Company has put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach of Personal Data about you where we are legally required to do so. 

Data Retention 

The Company’s retention period for Personal Data is based on business needs and legal requirements. We retain Personal Data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected, as described in this Notice, and any other permissible, related purposes. For example, we may retain Personal Data about you to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of such data, or in the event a litigation hold is imposed. When the Personal Data is no longer required, we securely destroy the data.
