What is the purpose of this document?

The Tamara group of companies acts as "controller" in relation to personal data (“Tamara”, “we”, “us”, “our”).  This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. You are  being sent a copy of this privacy notice because you are applying for work with us (whether as an employee,  worker or contractor). It makes you aware of how and why your personal information will be used, namely for  the purposes of the recruitment exercise, and how long it will usually be retained for. It provides you with certain  information that must be provided under the European General Data Protection Regulations 2016 (the “GDPR”).

Data protection principles

We will comply with data protection law and principles, which means that your data will be:

  • used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way;

  • collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is  incompatible with those purposes;

  • relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes; 

  • accurate and kept up to date;

  • kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about; and  

  • kept securely.

The kind of information we hold about you

In connection with your application for work with us, we will collect, store, and use the following categories of  personal information about you:

  • the information you have provided to us in your curriculum vitae and covering letter;

  • the information you have provided on any application form, including name, title, address, telephone  number, personal email address, date of birth, gender, employment history, qualifications;

  • any information you provide to us during an interview;

  • Any assessment data and results

We may also collect, store and use the following types of more sensitive personal information:

  • information about your race or ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and political opinions;

  • information about your health, including any medical condition, health and sickness records; and

  • information about criminal convictions and offences.

How is your personal information collected?

We collect personal information about candidates from the following sources:

  • You, the candidate.

How we will use information about you

We will use the personal information we collect about you to:

  • Assess your skills, qualifications, and suitability for the work or role. 

  • Carry out background and reference checks, where applicable.

  • Communicate with you about the recruitment process.

  • Keep records related to our hiring processes.

  • Comply with legal or regulatory requirements.

It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you to role or work since it would be beneficial to our  business to appoint someone to that role or work.

We may also need to process your personal information to decide whether to enter into a contract of employment  with you.

If you fail to provide personal information  

If you fail to provide information when requested, which is necessary for us to consider your application (such  as evidence of qualifications or work history), we will not be able to process your application successfully. For  example, if we require a credit check or references for this role and you fail to provide us with relevant details,  we will not be able to take your application further.

How we use particularly sensitive personal information  

We will use your particularly sensitive personal information in the following ways:  

  • We will use information about your disability status to consider whether we need to provide appropriate  adjustments during the recruitment process, for example whether adjustments need to be made during a  test or interview.

  • We will use information about your race or national or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or moral beliefs,  or your sexual life or sexual orientation, to ensure meaningful equal opportunity monitoring and reporting.

Information about criminal convictions

We envisage that we will process information about criminal convictions.

We will collect information about your criminal convictions history if we would like to offer you the work or role  (conditional on checks and any other conditions, such as references, being satisfactory). Where necessary and  legally permitted we will carry out a criminal records check in order to satisfy ourselves that there is nothing in  your criminal convictions history which makes you unsuitable for the role.

Automated decision-making

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated  decision-making.

Data sharing

Why might you share my personal information with third parties?

We will only share your personal information with the following third parties for the purposes of processing your  application: Veremark for the purposes of processing background checks. We may also share your personal information with other entities within the wider Tamara group; Tamara Germany GmbH, Tamara Technologies, Nakhla IT Systems, Tamara Vietnam Company Limited, Tamara UAE. All our  third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures  to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers  to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for  specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being  accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to  your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business  need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a  duty of confidentiality. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any  applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data retention

How long will you use my information for?

We will retain your personal information for a period of twelve months after we have communicated to you our  decision about whether to appoint you to role or work. We retain your personal information for that period so  that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited  grounds and that we have conducted the recruitment exercise in a fair and transparent way. After this period,  we will securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy.

If we wish to retain your personal information on file, on the basis that a further opportunity may arise in future  and we may wish to consider you for that, we will write to you separately, seeking your explicit consent to retain  your personal information for a fixed period on that basis.

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction

Your rights in connection with personal information

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This  enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are  lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any  incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal  information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us  to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing  (see below).

  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those  of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to  processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal  information for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend  the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or  the reason for processing it.  

  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
