Privacy Notice

Personal details are received by Contis Technologies Limited (“Company” or “we”) in relation to potential employment/engagement either from an individual or through a third party (such as recruitment agencies or referees). The Company is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. 

The purpose of processing the data is to consider whether the individual is suitable for employment/engagement by the Company and if so, to facilitate that.  This falls within Article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulations (the “Regulations”) which enables processing for the performance of a contract (or its preparatory steps).

How your information will be used

  • We will collect, store and use the following categories of personal data about applicants received (from them or third parties):
    • Name, date of birth and address.
    • Contact details, such as phone numbers and an email address.
    • CVs, application form and references.
    • Correspondence with or about you.
    • Any other information that you provide when contacting us directly.
  • Special categories of personal data will also be processed under Article 9(2)(b) and Article 9(2)(h) which are the exercising of the rights of a Data Controller in the employment field and that which is necessary for the purposes of preventative or occupational medicine for the assessment of working capacity.
  • Personal data will be received and processed by the Data Controller and only otherwise considered by any managers within the Company who would be considering the engagement within their team.
  • Much of the information we hold will have been provided by you, but some may come from other internal sources, such as your recruiting manager, or in some cases, external sources, such as referees or through screening processes.
  • Automated decision making (including profiling) does occur in the following limited circumstances:
    • An applicant’s suitability for employment through online testing/qualification screening/reference suitability; and
    • Right to work/identity checks
  • Personal data will be stored for a period of 24 months after which it will be deleted, or if it forms or has formed part of an ongoing appointment process involving the individual it will be retained until 1) no more than 24 months after the conclusion of that process if they are unsuccessful in appointment; or 2) in accordance with the employee privacy notice applicable to employees (for those successful in appointment).
  • Our third-party data host provider uses servers located in the UK and Europe to store personal data. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy when it is transferred, stored or processed in this way.
