How does Oxygen Conservation share your personal information?
- With the Oxygen House Group Recruitment Team: Oxygen Conservation’s recruitment is managed in partnership with the Oxygen House Group Recruitment Team. We will transfer the personal information you have provided to us in any enquiries, applications or CVs submitted by you in connection with any vacancies advertised by us (whether via our site, our social media channels or otherwise) to the Recruitment Team, who will store your personal information in our applicant tracking system, Recruitee, and only use your personal information for the purposes of our recruitment process. Your personal information will be retained by the Recruitment Team for 18 months following the relevant vacancy being filled. Once this period has elapsed, your personal information will be permanently deleted. Your personal information may also be disclosed to any of our directors, employees or professional advisers who are involved in our recruitment process.
In the event that you are unsuccessful for the role in respect of which you have submitted an application and where you have provided consent to do so via the recruitment process, the Recruitment Team may consider you for other appropriate opportunities within the Oxygen House Group. Should such opportunities be identified, your personal information may be shared with, and used by, other companies within the Oxygen House Group for recruitment purposes only. You may withdraw your consent to this information sharing at any time by contacting us using the contact information set out in the ‘How to contact us’ section of our Privacy Notice.
- With other members of Oxygen House Group generally: We may share your personal information with any companies within our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the Companies Act 2006, and any associated companies which have common ownership. This does not apply to information provided by you with us in connection with our recruitment process, which is covered above.
- With third parties: We may share your personal information with selected third parties, including:
- business partners and service providers in connection with the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
- third parties who provide email delivery, customer relationship management and helpdesk services, or any other services which we choose to outsource;
- IT hosting services;
- research partners and project collaborators (including prospective research partners and project collaborators); and
- analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site.
We may also share your personal information with other third parties:
- in the event that we sell any business or assets or enter into any joint venture arrangements, in which case we may disclose or transfer your personal information to the buyer of such business or assets or our joint venture partners;
- if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information with any regulatory or law enforcement authorities and are required to do so;
- in order to exercise or defend our legal rights or in connection with any legal proceedings or anticipated legal proceedings; and
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third party service providers to use your personal information for their own purposes and only permit them to use your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
How long is personal information stored for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of your personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we use your personal information, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and applicable legal requirements.
As set out above, personal information provided to us in connection with a job application will be retained by the Oxygen House Group Recruitment Team for 18 months following the relevant vacancy being filled.
The personal information we collect is stored and/or processed where we or our partners and third-party service providers maintain facilities.
The UK, the European Economic Area (EEA) and other countries outside the UK and EEA have differing data protection laws, some of which may provide lower levels of protection of privacy. It may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to countries outside the UK and EEA. In those cases we will comply with applicable UK and EEA laws designed to ensure the privacy of your personal data.
Security of personal information
We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We conduct regular penetration testing and reviews of our security standing.
In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those directors, employees and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only use your personal information for specified purposes and are required to keep your personal information confidential.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our site or our social media channels; any transmission is at your own risk.
In certain circumstances, you have legal rights under UK GDPR in relation to your personal information which are known as data subject rights. Those rights are:
- The right to be informed of processing.
- The right to access personal information by making a subject access request.
- The right to rectification where personal information is inaccurate or incomplete.
- The right to erasure, sometimes called ‘the right to be forgotten’.
- The right to restrict processing.
- The right to data portability.
- The right to object to processing.
- The right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automatic processing.
Where you seek to exercise any of your data subject rights, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and establish your right to exercise such rights. This is a security measure to ensure that your personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to exercise your data subject rights to speed up our response. Your legal rights do not apply in all instances. We will inform you if, in the context of your request, we do not consider that your legal rights apply.
If you wish to exercise any of your data subject rights set out above, please contact us using the contact information set out in the ‘How to contact us’ section of our Privacy Notice.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the ICO regarding our collection and use of personal information. However, we would appreciate being given the chance to help you with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact us using the details below in the first instance.
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
How to contact us
If you have any questions or would like more information about our collection and use of personal information, you can contact us by sending an email to email@example.com or by writing to us at Oxygen Conservation Limited, Oxygen House, Grenadier Road, Exeter, Devon EX1 3LH.
