3.6. We shall, both at the time of the determination of the means for processing and at the time of the processing itself, implement appropriate technical and organisational measures, such as pseudonymisation in an effective manner and integrate the necessary safeguards into the processing in order to meet the requirements of the law and protect the rights of data subjects.

4.1. Where we collect personal data directly from data subjects, we shall inform the data subject of:

4.1.9. whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, as well as whether the data subject is obliged to provide the personal data and of the possible consequences of failure to provide such data; and                                                   4.1.10. the existence of any automated decision-making, which produces legal effects concerning the data subject or similarly affects the data subject, including profiling, and meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

4.2. If we receive personal data about a data subject from other sources, we shall provide the data subject with the information in paragraph 4.1 above, together with details of the categories of personal data concerned and the source of the personal data (and, if applicable, whether it came from a public source), as soon as possible thereafter.

4.3. We shall also inform data subjects whose personal data we process that we are the data controller with regard to that data and we shall provide contact details of the Data Protection Officer.

Data Retention

11.1. Personal data should only be retained for as long as necessary. The retention periods can differ based on the type of data processed, the purpose of processing or other factors. Issues to consider include:

11.1.1. Whether any legal requirements apply for the retention of any particular data. For example: Tax law; Employment law; Litigation law; Regulations and guidance from regulators.

11.2. In the absence of any legal requirements, personal data may only be retained as long as necessary for the purpose of processing. This means data is to be deleted e.g. when:

11.2.1. the data subject has withdrawn consent to processing;

11.2.2. a contract has been performed or cannot be performed anymore; or

11.2.3. the data is no longer up to date.

11.3. Other issues to consider:

11.3.1. Has the data subject requested the erasure of data or the restriction of processing?

11.3.2. Is the retention still necessary for the original purpose of processing?

11.3.3. How recently was consent given?

11.3.4. Does the legitimate interest (where relevant) still override the rights of the data subject?

11.3.5. Exceptions may apply to the processing for historical, statistical or scientific purposes.

11.4. During the retention period

11.4.1. We will establish periodical reviews of data retained.

11.4.2. In establishing and verifying retention periods for data we will consider the following categories: the requirements of our business; type of personal data; purpose of processing; lawful grounds for processing; categories of data subjects; and any legal or regulatory requirements.

11.4.3. If precise retention periods cannot be established, we will identify criteria by which the period can be determined.

11.5. Expiration of the retention period

11.5.1. After the expiration of the applicable retention period we will either: erase the relevant personal data; or anonymise the data.

11.5.2. In erasing data, we will ensure that relevant archived, backup and deleted personal data are also erased, including any archived data held outside the company. In the event that this is not possible, we will ensure that: the personal data is beyond use; we will not use or attempt to be use the personal data to inform any decision in respect of any natural person; No other organisation is given access to the personal data; appropriate technical and organisational measures for security are in place; and we will permanently erase the personal data if or when this becomes possible.

11.5.3. In anonymising data we will use the following techniques: erasure of the unique identifiers which allow the allocation of a data set to a unique person; erasure of single pieces of information that identify the data subject (whether alone or in combination with other pieces of information); separation of personal data from non-identifying information (e.g. an order number from the customer’s name and address); or aggregation of personal data in a way that no allocation to any individual is possible.

11.6. Information obligations

11.6.1. In addition to other information obligations, in the context of data retention we will inform data subjects of: the retention period; if no fixed retention period can be provided – the criteria used to determine that period; and the new retention period if the purpose of processing has changed after personal data has been obtained

12.1. All personal data will be stored securely in order to avoid potential misuse or loss.

12.2. Personal data will be stored in the most convenient and appropriate location having regard to the period of retention required and the frequency with which access will be made to the record and limited to the individuals that require access.

12.3. The degree of security required for file storage will reflect the sensitivity and confidential nature of any material recorded. However all personal data and records should be readily accessible and retrievable in an acceptable format to allow authorised requests for information to be fulfilled in a timely manner.

12.4. Personal data will not be kept longer than is necessary for its purpose except where retention is required by statute. This means that we will destroy, erase or de-personalise data when it is no longer required for statutory purposes or to fulfil the legal purpose(s) for which it was obtained or required for business continuity purposes.

12.5. Any requests submitted by customers or employees to erase personal data will be reviewed by the DPO against the statutory requirements and our legitimate business interests.

12.6. We will adhere to Appendix 1, which shows how long certain categories of data, including personal data, will be kept.

12.7. At the end of the prescribed retention period, we may de-personalise and archive electronic data for the purposes of statistical analysis. All personal data that could identify an individual will be removed. Any records held on hard media, CD, DVD, paper or any scanned documents that cannot be de-personalised will be destroyed.

12.8. We may limit the de-personalisation of data where customers have provided their consent for us to retain their personal data beyond the prescribed retention period.

13.1. The retention rules shown in Appendix 1 apply to both hard and soft formats that are used to store personal records for customers and employees. We will keep the data for as long as the customer or employee has a relationship with us and the retention period shown in the schedule will begin when that relationship ends.

13.2. For the purposes of retention, the relationship with the customer ends when we have completed the work for which we contracted with the customer.

13.3. For the purposes of retention, the relationship with the employee ends on their last contracted date of employment and the relationship with an unsuccessful job applicant ends when the recruitment process ends for the role they applied for.

13.4. Each department must carry out regular reviews of the data they store and consider confidentially destroying data that is not required.

14.1. If you are unhappy with the way in which your personal data has been processed you may in the first instance contact the Data Protection Officer using the contact details Data Protection Officer, Level 30, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AB.
