  • Depending on the relevant circumstances and applicable local laws and requirements, we may collect some or all of the information listed below to enable us to offer you employment opportunities which are tailored to your circumstances and your interests.

Please note that the above list of categories of personal data we may collect is not exhaustive. 

CLIENT DATA


  • If you are a Client of Claremont Consulting Ltd, we need to collect and use information about you, or individuals at your organisation, in the course of providing you services such as: (i) finding Candidates who are the right fit for you or your organisation; (ii) providing you with a Managed Service Provider (MSP) (or assisting another organisation to do so); (iii) providing you with Recruitment Process Outsourcing Services (RPO) (or assisting another organisation to do so);


  • The data we collect about Clients is very limited. We generally only need to have your contact details or the details of individual contacts at your organisation (such as their names, telephone numbers and email addresses) to enable us to ensure that our relationship runs smoothly. We also hold information relating to your online engagement with Candidate profiles and other material published by Claremont Consulting Ltd. We may also hold extra information that someone in your organisation has chosen to tell us. In certain circumstances, such as when you engage with our Finance team, our calls with you may be recorded, depending on the applicable local laws and requirements. If we need any additional personal data for any reason, we will let you know. 

SUPPLIER DATA:


  • We don't collect much data about Suppliers, we simply need to make sure that our relationship runs smoothly. We'll collect the details for our contacts within your organisation, such as names, telephone numbers and email addresses so that we can contact you. We'll also collect bank details, so that we can pay you. We may also hold extra information that someone in your organisation has chosen to tell us. In certain circumstances, such as when you engage with our Finance teams, our calls with you may be recorded, depending on the applicable local laws and requirements.

PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS


  • In order to provide Candidates with suitable employment opportunities safely and securely and to provide for every eventuality for them and our Employees, we need some basic background information. We only ask for very basic contact details, so that we can get in touch with you either for a reference or because you’ve been listed as an emergency contact for one of our Candidates or Staff members.


  • All we need from referees is confirmation of what you already know about our Candidate or prospective member of Employee, so that they can secure that job they really want. Emergency contact details give us somebody to call in an emergency. To ask for a reference, we'll obviously need the referee's contact details (such as name, email address and telephone number). We'll also need these details if our Candidate or a member of our Employee has put you down as their emergency contact so that we can contact you in the event of an accident or an emergency. 

WEBSITE USERS


  • We collect a limited amount of data from our Website Users which we use to help us to improve your experience when using our website and to help us manage the services we provide. This includes information such as how you use our website, the frequency with which you access our website, your browser type, the location you view our website from, the language you choose to view it in and the times that our website is most popular.


  • If you would like to find out more information about what data we collect about you when you visit our website, please see our Cookie Policy.


HOW DO WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

CANDIDATE DATA


  • The main reason for using your personal details is to help you find employment or other work-related roles that might be suitable for you. The more information we have about you, your skillset and your ambitions, the more bespoke we can make our service.


  • We collect Candidate personal data in three primary ways:

1. Personal data that you, the Candidate, give to us;

2. Personal data that we receive from other sources; and

3. Personal data that we collect automatically.

Personal data you give to us

  • Claremont Consulting Ltd needs to know certain information about you in order to provide a tailored service. This will enable us to provide you with the best opportunities and should save you time in not having to trawl through information about jobs and services that are not relevant to you. 

  • There are numerous ways you can share your information with us. These may include:

-      Entering your details on the Claremont Consulting Ltd website or via an application form, as part of the registration process;

-      Leaving a hard copy CV at a recruitment event, job fair or office;

-      Emailing your CV to a Claremont Consulting Ltd consultant or being interviewed by them;

-      Applying for jobs through a job aggregator, which then redirects you to the Claremont Consulting Ltd website;

-      Entering a competition through a social media channel such as Facebook or Twitter.

Personal data we receive from other sources

  • We also receive personal data about Candidates from other sources. Depending on the relevant circumstances and applicable local laws and requirements, these may include personal data received in the following situations:

-      Your referees may disclose personal information about you;

     -     Our Clients may share personal information about you with us;

     -     We may obtain information about you from searching for potential Candidates from third party sources, such as         LinkedIn and other job sites;

     -    If you 'like' our page on Facebook or 'follow' us on Twitter we will receive your personal information from those sites;  and

-        If you were referred to us through a RPO or an MSP supplier, they may share personal information about you with us.

Personal data we collect automatically

  • To the extent that you access our website or read or click on an email from us, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements, we may also collect your data automatically or through you providing it to us.


  • When you visit our website, there is certain information that we may automatically collect, whether or not you decide to use our services. This includes your IP address, the date and the times and frequency with which you access the website and the way you browse its content.


  • We collect your data automatically via cookies, in line with cookie settings in your browserAnchor


Currently we do not use automated decision making technologies to make final or conclusive decisions about you and a member of our staff will always be involved in the provision of work finding services.


CLIENT DATA 

  • The main reason for using information about Clients is to ensure that the contractual arrangements between us can properly be implemented so that the relationship can run smoothly. This may involve: (i) identifying Candidates who we think will be the right fit for you or your organisation; (ii) providing you with an MSP programme (or assisting another organisation to do so); and/or (iii) providing you with RPO services (or assisting another organisation to do so). The more information we have, the more bespoke we can make our service.


  • We collect Clients personal data in three ways:


1. Personal data that we receive directly from you;

2. Personal data that we receive from other sources; and

3. Personal data that we collect automatically.


Personal data that we receive directly from you

  • We both share the same goal – to make sure that you have the best staff for your organisation. We will receive data directly from you in two ways:


- Where you contact us proactively, either by phone or email; and/or

- Where we contact you, either by phone or email, or through our consultants' business development activities more generally.


Personal data we receive from other sources

  • Where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements, we may seek more information about you or your colleagues from other sources generally by way of due diligence or other market intelligence including:


- From third party market research and by analysing online and offline media (which we may do ourselves, or employ other organisations to do for us);

- From delegate lists at relevant events; and

- From other limited sources and third parties (for example from our Candidates to the extent that they provide us with your details to act as a referee for them).


Personal data we collect via our website

  • To the extent that you access our website or read or click on an email from us, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements, we may also collect your data automatically or through you providing it to us.


WEBSITE USERS:

  • When you visit our website, there is certain information that we may automatically collect, whether or not you decide to use our services. This includes your IP address, the date and the times and frequency with which you access the website and the way you browse its content. We will also collect data from you when you contact us via the website. 

  • We collect your data automatically via cookies, in line with cookie settings in your browser. If you are also a Candidate or Client of Claremont Consulting Ltd, we may use data from your use of our websites to enhance other aspects of our communications with or service to you


HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Having obtained data about you, we then use it in a number of ways.

  • CANDIDATE DATA:

 We generally use Candidate data in three ways:

- Recruitment Activities

- Equal and Opportunity Monitoring and

- To help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims 


Here are some more details about each:

Recruitment Activities

  • Our main area of work is recruitment – connecting the right Candidates with the right jobs. We've listed below various ways in which we may use and process your personal data for this purpose, where appropriate and in accordance with any local laws and requirements. Please note that this list is not exhaustive:


- Collecting your data from you and other sources, such as LinkedIn and job boards;

- Storing your details (and updating them when necessary) on our database, so that we          can contact you in relation to recruitment;

- Providing you with our recruitment services and to facilitate the recruitment process;

- Assessing data about you against vacancies which we think may be suitable for you;

- Sending your information to Clients, in order to apply for jobs or to assess your eligibility for jobs;


- Enabling you to submit your CV, apply online for jobs or to subscribe to alerts about jobs we think may be of interest to you;

- Carrying out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between us;

- Carrying out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between Claremont Consulting Ltd and third parties in relation to your recruitment;

- Facilitating our payroll and invoicing processes;

- Carrying out customer satisfaction surveys;

- Verifying details you have provided, using third party resources (such as psychometric evaluations or skills tests), or to request information (such as references, qualifications and potentially any criminal convictions, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws);

- Complying with our legal obligations in connection with the detection of crime or the collection of taxes or duties; and

  • We may use your personal data for the above purposes if we deem it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests


  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements.

 

Equal opportunities monitoring and other sensitive personal data

  • We are committed to ensuring that our recruitment processes are aligned with our approach to equal opportunities. Some of the data we may (in appropriate circumstances and in accordance with local law and requirements) collect, should you decide to provide it, comes under the umbrella of "diversity information". This could be information about your ethnic background, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or other similar beliefs, and/or social-economic background. Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we'll use this information on an anonymised basis to monitor our compliance with our equal opportunities policy. We may also disclose this (suitably anonymised where relevant) data to Clients where this is contractually required, or the Client specifically requests such information to enable them to comply with their own employment processes. 

  • This information is what is called ‘sensitive’ personal information and slightly stricter data protection rules apply to it. We therefore need to obtain your explicit consent before we can use it. This means that you have to explicitly and clearly tell us that you agree to us collecting and using this information.

  • We may collect other sensitive personal data about you, such as health-related information, religious affiliation, or details of any criminal convictions if this is appropriate in accordance with local laws and is required for a role that you are interested in applying for. We will never do this without your explicit consent. 

  • If you are not happy about this, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

To help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims

  • In more unusual circumstances, we may use your personal data to help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

  • CLIENT DATA:

 We use Client information for:

- Recruitment Activites; and

- To help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. 


Here are some more details about each: 

Recruitment Activities

  • Our main area of work is recruitment, through: (i) providing you with Candidates; (ii) RPO Services; and (iii) MSP programmes. We've listed below the various ways in which we use your data in order to facilitate this:


- Storing your details (and updating them when necessary) on our database, so that we can contact you in relation to recruitment activities;

- Keeping records of our conversations and meetings, so that we can provide targeted services to you;

- Undertaking customer satisfaction surveys;

 We may use your personal data for these purposes if we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests


  • If you are not happy about this, in certain circumstances you have the right to object.


  • To help us establish, exercise or defend legal claims


  • In more unusual circumstances, we may use your personal data to help us to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

  • We may use your personal data for these purposes if we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests.


  • If you are not happy about this, in certain circumstances you have the right to object


  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements. 


 

PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS:

  • We will only use the information that our Candidate gives us about you for the following purposes:


- If our Candidates or Employees give your details as an emergency contact, we'll contact you in the case of an accident or emergency affecting them; or 


- If your details were given by our Candidate or a prospective Employee as a referee, we will contact you in order to take up a reference. This is an important part of our Candidate quality assurance process, and could be the difference between the individual getting a job or not;


- If your details were given by our Candidate or a prospective Employee as a referee, we may sometimes use your details to contact you in relation to recruitment activities that we think may be of interest to you, in which case we will use your data for the same purposes for which we use the data of Clients.


  • We may use your personal data for these purposes if we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests.


  • If you are not happy about this, you have the right to object. 


WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH?

  • Where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we may share your personal data, in various ways and for various reasons, with the following categories of people:


- Any of our group companies;

- Individuals and organisations who hold information related to your reference or application to work with us, such as current, past or prospective employers, educators and examining bodies and employment and recruitment agencies;

- Tax, audit, or other authorities, when we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to share this data (for example, because of a request by a tax authority or in connection with any anticipated litigation);

- Third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf (including external consultants, business associates and professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors and accountants, technical support functions and IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems);

- Third party outsourced IT and document storage providers where we have an appropriate processing agreement (or similar protections) in place;

- In the case of Candidates: potential employers and other recruitment agencies/organisations to increase your chances of finding employment;


- In the case of Candidates: third party partners, job boards and job aggregators where we consider this will improve the chances of finding you the right job;


- In the case of Candidates: MSP suppliers as part of our clients’ MSP programmes;

- If Claremont Consulting Ltd merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future, (or is in meaningful discussions about such a possibility) we may share your personal data with the (prospective) new owners of the business or company.


HOW DO WE SAFEGUARD YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

  • We are committed to taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that we hold from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access. We do this by having in place a range of appropriate technical and organisational measures. These include measures to deal with any suspected data breach.

  • If you suspect any misuse or loss of or unauthorised access to your personal information please let us know immediately.



HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR?

  • We will delete your personal data from our systems if we have not had any meaningful contact with you (or, where appropriate, the company you are working for or with) for two years (or for such longer period as we believe in good faith that the law or relevant regulators require us to preserve your data). After this period, it is likely your data will no longer be relevant for the purposes for which it was collected. 

  • For those Candidates whose services are provided via a third-party company or other entity, "meaningful contact" with you means meaningful contact with the company or entity which supplies your services. Where we are notified by such company or entity that it no longer has that relationship with you, we will retain your data for no longer than two years from that point or, if later, for the period of two years from the point we subsequently have meaningful contact directly with you.

  • When we refer to "meaningful contact", we mean, for example, communication between us (either verbal or written), or where you are actively engaging with our online services. If you are a Candidate we will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV onto our website or a job board. We will also consider it meaningful contact if you communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication. 

 

HOW CAN YOU ACCESS, AMEND OR TAKE BACK THE PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN TO US?

  • One of the GDPR's main objectives is to protect and clarify the rights of EU citizens and individuals in the EU with regards to data privacy. This means that you retain various rights in respect of your data, even once you have given it to us. These are described in more detail below.

  • To get in touch about these rights, please contact us. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within one month (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled). Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

  • Right to object: this right enables you to object to us processing your personal data where we do so for one of the following four reasons: (i) our legitimate interests; (ii) to enable us to perform a task in the public interest or exercise official authority; (iii) to send you direct marketing materials; and (iv) for scientific, historical, research, or statistical purposes.

  • The "legitimate interests" category above is the one most likely to apply to our Website Users, Candidates, Clients and Suppliers. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless:


- we can show that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests; or

- we are processing your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.

  • Right to withdraw consent: Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities, you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to carry out the particular activity that you previously consented to unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose in which case we will inform you of this condition.

  • Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR): You may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and request us to modify, update or Delete such information. We will ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless your request is "manifestly unfounded or excessive". If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request we will always tell you the reasons for doing so. 

    • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject access requests and may refuse your request in accordance with such laws.

  • Right to erasure: You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:


- the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed them;

- where previously given, you have withdrawn your consent to us processing your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue processing;

- the data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);

- it is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or

- if we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.

  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we comply with additional local law requirements regarding data subject right to erasure and may refuse your request in accordance with local laws.

  • We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons: 

- to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;

- to comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;

- for public health reasons in the public interest;

- for archival, research or statistical purposes; or

- to exercise or defend a legal claim.

  •   When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably

practicable steps to delete the relevant data.

  • Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that we restrict our

processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest. 

  • The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:

- where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;

- where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;

- where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and

- where we have no further need to process your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.

  •     If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.

  • Right to rectification: You also have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.

  • Right of data portability: This right of data portability applies to: (i) personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention); (ii) personal data provided by you; and (iii) personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.


  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority.


  •  If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us. Please note that we             may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you     raise.
    • You may ask to unsubscribe from job alerts at any time. 


  • 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 the period for which we hold your data.

 

HOW DO WE STORE AND TRANSFER YOUR DATA INTERNATIONALLY?

  • In order to provide you with the best service and to carry out the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, your data may be transferred: 

- between and within Claremont Consulting Ltd entities;

- to third parties (such as advisers or other Suppliers to Claremont Consulting Ltd);

- to overseas Clients;

- to Clients within your country who may, in turn, transfer your data internationally;

- to a cloud-based storage provider.

  • We want to make sure that your data are stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the European Economic Area or EEA (i.e. the Member States of the European Union, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example:

- by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to data controllers and processors in jurisdictions without adequate data protection laws; or

- by signing up to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework for the transfer of personal data from entities in the EU to entities in the United States of America or any equivalent agreement in respect of other jurisdictions; or

- transferring your data to a country where there has been a finding of adequacy by the European Commission in respect of that country's levels of data protection via its legislation; or

- where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between ourselves and a third party and the transfer is in your interests for the purposes of that contract (for example, if we need to transfer data outside the EEA in order to meet our obligations under that contract if you are a Client of ours); or


- where you have consented to the data transfer.


  • To ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection, we have put in place appropriate procedures with the third parties we share your personal data with to ensure that your personal information is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the law on data protection.

OUR LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA


LEGITIMATE INTERESTS

  • Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR says that we can process your data where it "is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data." 

  • We don't think that any of the following activities prejudice individuals in any way, they actually help us to offer you a more tailored, efficient service. However, you do have the right to object to us processing your personal data on this basis.


  • Please note that in certain of the jurisdictions in which we operate, a different legal basis for data processing might apply in certain cases.


CANDIDATE DATA:

  • We think it's reasonable to expect that if you are looking for employment or have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site, you are happy for us to collect and otherwise use your personal data to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, share that information with prospective employers and assess your skills against our bank of vacancies. Once it's looking like you may get the job, your prospective employer may also want to double check any information you've given us (such as the results from psychometric evaluations or skills tests) or to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal record, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws. We need to do these things so that we can function as a profit-making business, and to help you and other Candidates get the jobs you deserve. 

  • We want to provide you with tailored job recommendations and relevant articles to read to help you on your job hunt. We therefore think it's reasonable for us to process your data to make sure that we send you the most appropriate content. 

  • We have to make sure our business runs smoothly, so that we can carry on providing services to Candidates like you. We therefore also need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant. 

  • We have our own obligations under the law, which it is a legitimate interest of ours to insist on meeting. If we believe in good faith that it is necessary, we may therefore share your data in connection with crime detection, tax collection or actual or anticipated litigation. 

CLIENT DATA:

  • To ensure that we provide you with the best service possible, we store your personal data and/or the personal data of individual contacts at your organisation as well as keeping records of our conversations, meetings, registered jobs and placements. From time to time, we may also ask you to undertake a customer satisfaction survey. We think this is reasonable – we deem these uses of your data to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation providing various recruitment services to you. 

SUPPLIER DATA:

  • We use and store the personal data of individuals within your organisation in order to facilitate the receipt of services from you as one of our Suppliers. We also hold your financial details, so that we can pay you for your services. We deem all such activities to be necessary within the range of our legitimate interests as a recipient of your services. 

PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS:

  • If you have been put down by a Candidate or a prospective Employee as one of their referees, we use your personal data in order to contact you for a reference. This is a part of our quality assurance procedure and so we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation offering recruitment services and employing people ourselves. 

  • If a Candidate or Employee has given us your details as an emergency contact, we will use these details to contact you in the case of an accident or emergency. We are sure you will agree that this is a vital element of our people-orientated organisation, and so is necessary for our legitimate interests. 

 

CONSENT

Should we want or need to rely on consent to lawfully process your data we will request your consent orally, by email or by an online process for the specific activity we require consent for and record your response on our system.  Where consent is the lawful basis for our processing you have the right to withdraw your consent to this particular processing at any time.


ESTABLISHING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS

  • Sometimes it may be necessary for us to process personal data and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, sensitive personal data in connection with exercising or defending legal claims. Article 9(2)(f) of the GDPR allows this where the processing "is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity".

  • This may arise for example where we need to take legal advice in relation to legal proceedings or are required by law to preserve or disclose certain information as part of the legal process.
