We are both a “data controller” and “data processor” for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and (from 25 May 2018) the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“Data Protection Law”).
As part of the recruitment process, we hold a copy of your application form and any additional information that you have provided us with. This will usually include an address, a phone number, your gender, your entitlement to work in the UK, remuneration and other employee benefits and other personal details.
We also keep notes of our conversations, extra information that was not in the CV, details about the jobs we have put you forward for and any feedback from any interviews.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is safe and take relevant organisation and technical measures to ensure the information we hold is secure. Salus will keep your emails and records of telephone conversations with all of the above on email, our secure server and any paper copies will be kept in a locked cabinet. All laptops are encrypted with password protection.
However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and so we cannot guarantee the security of the data that you send to us electronically.
The information we have comes initially from you. In certain cases when we have followed up on your references, this information will also go onto our secure locations, see above.
If you are offered a telephone/skype interview then those details will be sent across to the selection panel.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law.
There may be times when we may need to share personal information with third parties for the purposes outlined in this notice, or where we are legally required to do so. The main examples are as follows:
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act.
We will keep your data for a maximum period of 6 months. Once we have your details on file we will keep them there either until that time, or you ask for them to be removed, or send us an update on your details, or until we no longer need them.
You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to Salus during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information, then we may not be able to process your application properly or at all.
If you believe we have mishandled your data we would encourage you to raise this with us and see if we can clarify the situation you should contact the DPO at
DPO@salusgroup.org.uk or on 01303817470. If we can’t resolve the situation then you have the right to raise a complaint to the I.C.O.
Salus does not send out any regular recruitment marketing emails, we will only email you about jobs that we believe would be of interest to you For further information please see our privacy notice
