Recruitment Data Privacy
When applying as a candidate to JCC Bowers, we collect data about you in a variety of ways, including the information normally included in a CV or a job application cover letter, or notes made by our recruiting officers during a recruitment interview.
If Unsuccessful- if you apply for a position with us, and if your application is not successful, we may retain your personal information for a limited period so that we can consider you for other positions that may become available. Please note, we are not able to advise every candidate individually about the outcome of their application.
If you Join Us- further information will be collected from you directly when you complete forms at the start of your employment, for example, your bank and next of kin details.
Restricted use- we will only keep personal data for as long as it is necessary for the express purpose of finding an appropriate job opportunity at JCC Bowers. Only authorised colleagues will view personal data, as part of the process for selecting, interviewing and offering roles to candidates. If we no longer require your personal information, we will delete or anonymise it.
Accuracy of data - candidates may ask JCC Bowers for personal information (e.g. CV) to be checked, corrected, deleted or refreshed at any time.
Use of Recruitment data for HR compliance and for identification of talent for future roles - the minimum time we will keep details for a specific vacancy is 6 months from completion of the hiring process. The maximum time will be 2 years from our last contact with candidates unless they ask to be deleted earlier. We ask for 2 years so we can remember candidates for our Talent Pool. This length of time is particularly useful for experienced hires with specialist expertise, where opportunities turn over slowly.
Data Obligations- on request, we will delete all the personal information we hold for a candidate, except the data we are obliged to hold to comply with legal obligations. Personal Data may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time for legal, tax or regulatory reasons or for legitimate and lawful business purposes, even after deletion.
Access and correction of personal data
JCC wants to make sure that all personal information is accurate and up to date. Please keep us informed of personal data changes during your relationship with us. You may ask us to correct any inaccurate data we have stored about yourself.
Additionally, you have the right to request a copy of the information we hold about you at any time. If you would like to access or correct any of the personal data JCC hold about you, please Email DPO@jccbowers.comstating ‘Access/ Correction of personal data’ in the subject line.
Provision of such information will be subject to:
- The payment of a fee (currently fixed at GBP 10); and
- The supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address)
Capitulating and/or withdrawing consent to use information
You have the right to withdraw your consent for JCC to process your information for any reason, or to ask for your personal data to be deleted. If you would like to exercise these rights, please Email DPO@jccbowers.com stating ‘Withdraw of Consent’ in the subject line.
The data provider also maintains the right at any time to stop us from contacting them for marketing purposes. If a data provider no longer wishes to be contacted for marketing purposes, they can click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the marketing material they were sent or Email email@example.com the subject ‘Unsubscribe’.
At any time, clients and consumers may review or update preferences or opt-out of any marketing mailing list for which they have previously asked JCC to include them by clicking ‘Preferences’ or ‘Unsubscribe’ in any marketing email communication they have been sent.
Where a data provider opts out of receiving marketing material, they will not withdraw consent to use the personal data provided to us in other transactions; e.g. where we have to carry out our obligations arising from any contract we are about to enter or have entered with the data provider.
Sharing and Disclosure of information
JCC Bowers do not share, sell or disclose information about identifiable individuals unless lawfully obliged to do so, but may provide aggregate information on occasion. We will not pass on client or consumer details except when we need to do so in order to complete a transaction – such as when arranging for a courier company to deliver goods that a client has ordered.
There are, however, certain circumstances in which JCC may disclose, transfer or share personal data with certain third parties without further notification.
These are as follow:
- prior consent to the transfer/sharing of data has already been obtained;
- the transferring/sharing of data is necessary for the performance of a contract;
- the transferring/sharing of data is required under a legal obligation to carry out public functions (such as the administration of justice);
- the transferring/sharing of data is necessary to protect client or consumer vital interests, property, or safety of us or any of our customers, or others;
- in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets within our group or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party.
- Specifically, any exchange of information with other companies and organisations excludes for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
