This is as per Article 6 of the GDPR:
We collect the following personal data with your consent:
Through the course of the recruitment process we may also collect and process the following data, some which could be considered to be special category data and thus would be treated with greater care and protection. We would only collect this data with your full consent and it would only be for the contractual and legal purposes of assessing your suitability for a particular role, whilst ensuring you are treated fairly during the recruitment process and all laws around equality and disability are followed:
Since this data is much more personal we shall only store this data in the most brief and anonymous form possible to ensure compliance with our contractual obligations. We would also delete this data from our systems as soon as either a contract is signed or you are found not to be suitable for a position.
This information is only used for recruitment purposes including:
Please note we would not in any circumstance pass on your information to another department within Akal or to a client, without your express written permission first
Once a year, we review all records containing personal information which have had no activity (meaning no updates or communication between the person and Akal) for a period of 2 years or more.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable systems and procedures to safeguard and secure the information we store. These include but are not limited to:
