1             About this policy

Azets is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. This policy is a statement of how we process your personal data in compliance with data protection legislation. When we process personal data in the United Kingdom we do so in compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK GDPR. When we process personal data in the European Economic Area we do so in compliance with the EU GDPR. It is important to note that some countries impose different legal obligations on employers in employment legislation and wherever possible these variations are shown as footnotes.

Where we refer to “you” or “your”, we are referring to you as an employee (current or former) or an internal consultant of Azets.

Where we refer to “we”, “our” or “us”, we are referring to the Azets company that employs you. The company that employs you is the controller of your personal data.

  • who to contact if you have any queries relating to your personal data;
  • what personal data we process about you, where we collect it from, how we collect it and why we collect it;

In general, processing of your personal data in connection with employment is not conditional on your consent.

If you have given your consent to processing of personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting in any way our employment relationship or the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent given before your withdrawal. You can change or withdraw your consent at any time by sending an email to your local Data Protection Officer or Data Protection Manager (please see Appendix C). We will act immediately accordingly, unless there is a legal basis for not doing so.

We seek to ensure that our information collection and processing is always proportionate. We will notify you of any substantial changes to information we collect or to the purposes for which we collect and process it.

For some of your personal data you will have a legal, contractual or regulatory obligation to provide us with your personal data.

7                    Who has access to your data?

Your personal data will be processed by managers, HR staff and administrative staff in the Azets group of companies. Those staff, including your line manager, may not be employed by the same company as you, but may be employed by another company in the Azets group.

In general, access to your personal data is restricted to those who need to access it to carry out their duties for example, but not limited to, your management, HR (including local HR teams), Payroll, Talent Development, Compliance and the senior management team.

All companies in the Azets group of companies are bound by a Data Sharing Agreement which commits them to share personal data, when it is necessary, in a secure and lawful manner that respects the rights and freedoms of data subjects.

We have a legitimate interest to operate efficient administration systems and some of these systems are provided by other group companies, so for example:

  • Your payroll may be processed by a different Azets company to the one that employs you;
  • Your email platform may be administered by a different Azets company to the one that employs you;
  • Provision of IT services may be administered by a different Azets company to the one that employs you.

8             Persons with whom we may share your data or disclose information to

We will only disclose your personal data outside the Azets group of companies and our ultimate parent company if disclosure is consistent with a lawful basis for processing upon which we rely, doing so complies with data protection legislation and is fair to you.

We will disclose your personal data if it is necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation or the interests of a third party (but we will not do this if these interests are overridden by your interests and rights). Where necessary we will also disclose your personal data:

  • if you consent;
  • where we are required to do so by law;
  • if we reasonably believe we have a duty to report professional misconduct to a regulator[7]; or
  • in connection with criminal or regulatory investigations.

Specific circumstances in which your personal data may be disclosed include to:

  • other companies in the Azets group of companies or our ultimate parent company;
  • any party approved by you;
  • law enforcement agencies or where required by applicable laws, pursuant to court orders, or arbitral or tribunal orders or rules of procedure, or to government regulations departments or agencies or regulatory bodies (including disclosure to tax and employment authorities), employment and any other regulatory bodies;
  • the relevant Supervisory Authority responsible for regulating data protection legislation;
  • any of the accountancy profession and financial services regulators by whom we are regulated;
  • our professional advisers, for example to our lawyers, for the purpose of seeking legal advice or to further our interests in legal proceedings;
  • our accountants for auditing purposes;
  • our insurers, legal advisers or other third parties who need access to personal data in the context of managing, investigating or defending claims or complaints;
  • in the UK only and if you are a foreign national, we have a legal obligation to inform the UK Border Agency (UKBA) and provide your contact details if we have suspicions that you are in breach of your right to work in the UK. This includes: if you do not arrive for your first day at work, if you are absent without permission for more than ten days, or we have suspicions that you are involved in terrorism or any other criminal activity;
  • external organisations (processors) that process your data on our behalf. Where we engage external organisations, or other entities in the Azets group of companies, to process personal data on our behalf they do so on the basis of written instructions in a legally binding contract and are obliged to implement appropriate technical and organisation measures to ensure the confidentiality and security of your data in compliance with data protection legislation;
  • any potential purchaser of Azets or one of its subsidiaries or parent companies for which you work, or partially work – but only if we were to contemplate selling. If this were to occur, such sharing of personal data would be governed by a legally binding contract in full compliance with data protection legislation.

All recipients of shared personal data are bound by contract to process personal data in compliance with data protection legislation, particularly with respect to security and confidentiality.

9             Where your personal data is held

Personal data about you may be held at our offices, on our systems and servers and those of our service providers and partners where information has been shared as described above. Personal data is securely stored and managed in compliance with data protection legislation, particularly with respect to security and confidentiality.

10          Transferring your personal data internationally

We will neither transfer nor process personal data outside the country in which your employer is based, nor will we permit personal data to be so transferred or processed by a processor or controller, unless it is under one or more of the following conditions:

  • the territory into which the data are being transferred has an adequacy decision issued by the European Commission (under EU GDPR) or the Secretary of State (under UK GDPR);
  • the transfer is made under the unaltered terms of the standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission (under EU GDPR) or the Secretary of State (under UK GDPR);
  • the transfer is made under the provision of binding corporate rules which have been approved and certified by the European Commission (under EU GDPR) or the Secretary of State (under UK GDPR);
  • the transfer is made in accordance with one of the exemptions set out in GDPR Article 49.

 

11          How long we keep your personal data for

We keep your personal data during and after your employment, for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. After employment ceases we retain only the information necessary to satisfy legal obligations and to administer any pension commitments we may have. Please see Appendix A of this policy for how long we retain your data.

The duration for which we retain your personal data will differ depending on the type of information and the reason why we collected it from you. It also differs depending upon the national employment legislation of certain countries. However, in some cases personal data may be retained on a long-term basis, for example, personal data that we need to retain because of a legal or regulatory obligation. Such exceptions include:

  • information that may be relevant to personal injury claims or employment claims. Discrimination claims may be retained until the limitation period for those types of claims has expired. For personal injury or discrimination claims this can be an extended period as the limitation period might not start to run until a long time after you have worked for us;
  • information that may be required by a pension provider or benefit provider which we may retain for the period that your pension or benefit is payable.

If we reasonably anticipate litigation, we may issue a “Litigation Hold” (also known as a legal hold, document hold, hold order, or preservation order) which affects your personal data[8]. This is an instruction directing employees to preserve, and refrain from destroying or modifying, certain records and information (both paper and electronic) that may be relevant to the subject matter of a pending or anticipated litigation or government or regulatory investigation. If we reasonably expect litigation or a government investigation, we have a common law duty to prevent spoliation of evidence. This would have the effect of suspending the normal disposition or processing of records, such as backup tape recycling, archived media and other storage and management of documents and information. The documents to be preserved include electronic documents which would otherwise be deleted in accordance with our retention policy or otherwise deleted in the ordinary course of business.

12          Our obligation for data accuracy

We have an obligation to ensure that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and up-to-date and we use our best endeavours to ensure its accuracy. But to do this we require your cooperation and assistance. Please let your HR team know if anything changes, for example if you move home or change your phone number or personal email address.

13          Automated decision making

We do not use personal data to carry out any automated decision making that could have a legal or similarly significant effect upon you.

14          Your rights in relation to personal data

We try to be as open as we reasonably can about the personal data that we process. If would like specific information, please ask.

Right of access

You have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed, and, where that is the case, access to that personal data.
