Legal entities Salt

Your personal data will be stored on our servers and specifically in our global CRM system Jobscience. Your data can, therefore, be accessed by our employees who are based in various international offices as outlined above.

Your personal data may also be shared with our clients for the purpose of introducing you or arranging interviews with them, upon prior written notice to you in which one of our staff members outlines which client(s) Salt will share your details with and the exact data that will be forwarded to this client. Our employees will only share your personal data with our clients if you explicitly agree for them to do so.

We may furthermore disclose your personal information to third parties in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will have to disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. Furthermore, we may be under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, to defend our business against a legal claim or in order to enforce or apply our standard terms of business or other agreements or to protect the rights, property or safety of Salt, our customers, or other parties.

⦁ Your website
⦁ Professional profiles available in the public domain, e.g. LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook

⦁ Gender
⦁ Marital status
⦁ Children

 

3. How Salt collects personal data

Salt collects your personal data in the following ways:

1. You apply for a job in response to a job ad on welovesalt.com
2. You upload your CV on welovesalt.com
3. You complete a ‘Contact us’ form or register with Salt on our website
4. A Salt Recruitment Consultant gets in contact with you because they found your profile on a database/ job board you have subscribed to or registered your CV with and Salt uses these platforms to headhunt and access details of candidates
5. We have received your details about you from another third party, for instance; a business contact, a client or professional advisors
6. You applied for a job ad by Salt published on an external job board, e.g. Monster, Jobsite or LinkedIn, etc.
7. You have met or spoken with a Salt Recruitment Consultant and are sharing information or sending your CV/application by email to Salt

When Salt receives your details in one of the above ways we save your application and information provided by you on our CRM system. Your information and application will be reviewed by our consultants who will potentially share that information with our clients to advance your application, provided you have given your express consent to this upfront.

When we receive these details, our sales consultant will inform you as soon as possible of collecting the data of the source where your personal data originates from. If this information is not provided, please let us know straight away and we will confirm how we located your data.

 

4. Why we hold your data and legal basis

Salt will collect your information to carry out our core business and ancillary activities – for the purpose of recruitment services. In particular, Salt will collect and process your personal data for the following purposes:

⦁ Introducing you to (potential) clients or employers of which the scope will be identified and communicated by one of our members of staff;
⦁ Keeping your personal data on file for current and future opportunities that may arise;
⦁ Evaluating your experience with Salt and our recruitment process;
⦁ If we ask for a copy of your passport or visa, we do this as we may have to verify your identity and/ or the right to work.
⦁ Clients may ask Salt to provide them with additional documentation (e.g. your passport details or references). If that happens we will ask for your permission to share these data with our clients. Please let us know if you have any issues with this.

 

The following legal basis applies for processing your data if we have been in touch with you within the last three years:

We will process your data as we believe that we have legitimate interests to do so.

We have carried out a three-part test (a so-called legitimate interest’s assessment).

As a recruitment business, we introduce candidates to clients for permanent employment and temporary worker placements (if you provide services as a contractor through Salt). The exchange of relevant personal data of our candidates to our client contacts is paramount if we want to provide services to our clients or support our candidate’s career aspirations.

As we thus need to satisfy our client’s resourcing needs we require an up-to-date database of candidate data. We would only use your personal data to introduce you to our clients and do not share more data with our clients than reasonably necessary. We would usually only process data that is already available online to other recruiters (e.g. a CV downloaded from a job board). We always ask for your permission before we process any of your sensitive data (e.g. passport copy or references). In practice, we would acquire this type of information only upon request when we introduce you to one of our clients.

Thus, to maintain, expand and develop our business we need to record the personal data of our (prospective) candidates who have been in touch with Salt within the last three years. We have chosen this three-year period as it is likely that (1) there is a(n) ongoing relationship between you and Salt (2) you may be looking for opportunities that Salt can help you with and (3) your data on our database is still up-to-date. We have also chosen this three-year period as we think this timeframe is regarded to be industry standard.

 

The following legal basis applies for processing your data if we have not been in touch with you within the last three years:

If you have not been in touch with us for the last three years, we understand that the data (1) we hold on file may be inaccurate (2) you may not be interested in getting contacted by Salt anymore.

We will, therefore, process your personal data only if you have given your consent for us to do so. We will request your consent by an online process for the specific activity we require consent for and record your response on the system. If you haven’t already done so, to opt in any email communications from us, please click the ‘subscribe’ link.

You are entitled to withdraw consent or restrict the use of your personal information for whatever purpose at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. To opt out of any data processing and/ or email communications from us, please click the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the foot of the email in question for an immediate removal from our database and /or further communications.

Furthermore, if you previously agreed to us holding or using your personal information, you may change your mind at any time by accessing the preference centre to change your settings. Alternatively, you can email GDPR@welovesalt.com. We will process the restriction of use in our marketing communications or removal of your personal information within 30 working days.

 

The following legal basis applies for processing your data if you are (permanently) employed by one of our clients:

If you are a candidate of Salt and have been successfully hired by one of our clients, we have a legal obligation to keep your data on file for six years. This legal requirement is in place so that Salt is able to evidence any transactions with our clients for tax purposes and to be able to produce proof of the placement should any legal claims arise against Salt by any parties involved during the recruitment and/or hiring process.

 

5. Optional Marketing communication

 Salt will hold your personal data for marketing purposes which are optional.

The legal basis for collecting and processing personal data for marketing purposes is ‘consent’ which means Salt will only send you marketing communication if you have opted into receiving this.

If you opted into receiving updates from Salt, we will use your data, preferences, user behaviour and information you have provided to personalize your experience, provide you with relevant service announcements and updates, and to better understand your needs and interests in relation to your job search.

Salt uses the personal data and information you have provided with your CV or portfolio to match your profile with relevant job opportunities. Our marketing team analyses your profile to provide you with additional information which helps you to better position yourself in the job market, i.e. with invitations to networking events in your city, news and updates relevant for your area of expertise, or job alerts tailored to your preferences, if you have opted in to receiving marketing communication.

You are entitled to withdraw consent or restrict the use of your personal information for whatever purpose at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. To opt out of any data processing and/ or marketing communications from Salt. please click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer of the respective email or use the Preference Centre to update your settings.

 

6. Cross-border transfers

As all our offices are connected via the cloud-based platform Jobscience, your personal information will be stored and processed in any country where we have offices. By using our service, you agree to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence, including to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country. Please note that all Salt entities operate under Standard Contractual Clauses providing protections and safeguards for cross-border transfers.  We take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Data Processing policy.

Salt also uses various other software/cloud providers who may transfer your personal data outside the EEA. Salt will ensure that adequate safeguards are in place by 25 May 2018.

Please also note that if we transfer personal data to our clients, this data may be transferred outside the EEA for the purpose of our recruitment services. Salt has reasonable safeguards in place to ensure a safe data transfer outside the EEA. However please note that if the Client uses your data they qualify as data controller as they determine the purposes and means of your personal data and as such our clients are also responsible for processing your data.

If you have any further queries about data transfer outside the EEA, please contact GDPR@welovesalt.com.

 

7. How long will we store your data?

Your personal data will be stored in our systems for six years following the date your profile was added to our database. However, if you do not stay in touch with us for a period of more than three years your data will be deleted unless you give Salt consent that we can process your data for another three years. If you do not give us consent to hold your data, then we will remove your data from our database.

Your personal data will be stored in our systems for three consecutive years. As long as you are working with Salt’s Recruitment Consultants on your next career step, we will keep your data on file to be able to match you with the latest opportunities and to contact you.

Your data will be removed from our systems if
a) We have not heard from you during a period of three years, or
b) If you request for your data to be removed

Different retention periods apply if
a) you have entered into an agreement with Salt for which a different Data Processing Notice applies (see for example Privacy Policy for Contractors below) or
b) unless there is a direct statutory requirement (that comes into force) under which Salt is obliged to keep your data stored in our internal databases for another period of time. This applies for example if you are hired by one of our clients and Salt subsequently needs to keep records of the relevant transaction. The current limitation period is six years from the date of the transaction. Also, under the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003 Salt must retain evidence of an introduction or supply for at least one year from the last activity e.g. interview, introduction or engagement.

 

8. What are your rights under GDPR

Under GDPR you are entitled to various rights:

• You can 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. This means when working with our Recruitment consultants, make sure you notify us of any changes or update your information like email, phone number etc. when they change.

• You can 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). This means should you wish to be removed from Salt’s database, please email GDPR@welovesalt.com. We will review and process your request within 30 days.

• You can object to the 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. This means we will only send you marketing communication if you have opted in. You can opt out at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer of the email in question and will be removed from the Salt marketing mailing list. You can also use the Salt Preference Centre to opt in and out of other communication from Salt.

• You can 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.

• You can request the transfer of your personal information to another party in certain formats, if practicable.

All such requests need to be addressed to GDPR@welovesalt.com.

The fact that you can lodge a request does not necessarily mean we will grant your request, at all times, especially if Salt has a legitimate interest that outweighs your interests as an individual.
Salt will, however, provide information without undue delay and in any event within one month (this can be extended to 2 months in exceptional circumstances) of the receipt of the request, however where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular, because of its repetitive character, Salt may refuse to act upon your request. In that case, we will inform you within one month of the request of the possibility of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority (in the UK this will be the ICO) or seeking a judicial remedy.

 

9. Automated decision making, including profiling

Salt will not conduct any forms of automated processing of your personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning your personal preferences, job roles interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements. We will not make decisions that are based solely on automated processing which produces legal effects, or similarly significantly affects you as a data subject.

 

10. Lodging a complaint

If you feel that your rights as a data subject have been breached, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with the national supervisory authority (in the UK this will be the Information Commissioner’s Office via https://ico.org.uk/concerns/) or seek a legal remedy. However, we strongly encourage you to contact us via GDPR@welovesalt.com.

 

11. Changes to this Data Processing Notice

Any changes we make to our Data Processing Notice in the future will be posted on this website and where appropriate (if we make any significant changes that may affect your rights as a data subject), notified to you by email. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to this Data Processing Notice.

The Salt Group is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. The Salt Group entails all our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries and our associated companies.

When you use our services, you trust us with your personal data. This Data Processing Notice is meant to help you understand what personal data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. This is important, and we hope you will take time to read it carefully. Your new rights under GDPR will only apply once GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018.

 

General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (‘GDPR’) that comes into effect on 25 May 2018, Salt is obliged to issue a Data Processing Notice if we store your personal data in our database.

1. Salt as a Data Controller

Salt Group will be what’s known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. The Salt Group entails all our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries and our associated companies.

Salt is headquartered in the UK but also has offices in countries outside of the EU, such as New York, Dubai, Auckland, Sydney, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. To be able to offer global recruitment solutions and match candidates with the best opportunities in the digital industry globally, all our teams are connected via the same internal CRM system and software. All these entities act as Data Controllers as they determine the purposes and means of the processing of your personal data.

Our offices are listed below:

Legal entities Salt

Your personal data will be stored on our servers and specifically our global CRM system, Jobscience. Personal data, for example, a Basic Disclosure, a credit check or a background screening report, will however only be processed by our Compliance/Finance team and will not be accessible to other employees (other than the sales consultant who is directly involved with your application). Your personal data as set out in Table B will only be shared with our (end) clients, if we are explicitly asked by them to do so, and if you or your company has agreed to this. If nothing is outlined, then you should presume that no additional personal data as outlined in table B is forwarded to the Client.

 

2. Which personal data does Salt collect?

Salt only collects personal data to help us match you with the right career opportunity.

If you are considered for (temporary) work with (potential) clients of Salt, Salt will collect the following personal data (Table A):
⦁ Your full name
⦁ Your registered address
⦁ Your date of birth
⦁ Your email addresses
⦁ Your (mobile) telephone number
⦁ Your website
⦁ Professional profiles available in the public domain e.g. LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook
⦁ Your CV
⦁ Skillset (if not already covered in a CV)
⦁ Job preferences (if not already covered in a CV)
⦁ Current employer/client
⦁ Your passport/visa, when requested by the client
⦁ Current salary/employment conditions
⦁ Desired salary/ employment conditions

In most cases Salt will already have these details on file if you are a candidate of Salt but have not been placed for contract work at one of our clients. In that case the following Data Processing Notice applies: Data Processing Notices for candidates

However, if your placement has been confirmed by our client, we will need additional personal data. In that case the company you work through (this could be either an umbrella company or your limited company you provide services through) will sign a contract with Salt. The company you work through will have to submit the following personal data (Table B):
⦁ A copy of your passport/ visa
⦁ National Insurance Number
⦁ Professional references
⦁ Clearance documents, for example but not limited to a Basic Disclosure, Disclosure Scotland, or a credit check (to be confirmed when applicable)
⦁ Company documents (see explanation below)
⦁ Background checks (when applicable, see explanation below)

Please note that these requirements will be outlined in more detail in the contract your company signs with Salt and that for enhanced screening or compliance purposes our client may also request Salt to provide them with these or additional personal data. If this is the case, Salt will clearly ask you which documents are requested, whom we share this with and any additional requirements will be listed in the contract your company signs with Salt.

Salt will also collect other documents from your company (this can be your own company or your employer) it enters into a contract with Certificate of Incorporation, VAT certificate (when applicable), bank statement (no personal bank account) and insurance documents. These documents may contain some of your personal data e.g. names or address details, but would usually be unrelated to you as an individual.

Salt is sometimes instructed by its clients to do background checks. A “background check” is a verification of your antecedents by making use of the services of an agency which specializes in performing background checks. The details to be verified in such background check would typically be, but are not limited to:
(a) The authenticity of your residential address;
(b) The veracity of your claims in relation to educational qualifications and work/job experience; and
(c) An enquiry into your character, including but not limited to your criminal history

If background checks apply, Salt will clearly tell your company what is expected of you when initiating or conducting a background check (through a third-party services provider) and this will be outlined in the contract your company signs with Salt. Unless otherwise stated in the contract, Salt will not share the outcome of the background check with any other party than the client and/ or end client, and this will only be communicated to people with a ‘need to know’.

Failing to provide the required documentation or not agreeing to Salt to process the personal data to the client means that your company cannot sign a contract with Salt and thus you will not be allowed to start your assignment.

 

3. How Salt collects personal data

Salt collects your personal data in the following ways:

1. You apply for a job in response to a job ad on welovesalt.com
2. You upload your CV on welovesalt.com
3. You complete a ‘Contact us’ form or register with Salt on our website
4. A Salt Recruitment Consultant gets in contact with you because they found your profile on a database/job board you have subscribed to or registered your CV with and Salt uses these platforms to headhunt and access details of candidates
5. We have received your details about you from another third party, for instance; a business contact, a client, or professional advisers
6. You applied for a job ad by Salt published on an external job board, like Monster, Jobsite or LinkedIn etc.
7. You have met or spoken with a Salt Recruitment Consultant and are sharing information or sending your CV/application by email to Salt

When Salt receives your details in one of the above ways, we save your application and information provided by you on our CRM system. Your information and application will be reviewed by our consultants who will potentially share that information with our clients to advance your application, provided you have given your express consent to this upfront.

 

4. Why we hold your data and legal basis

Salt will collect the above personal data as set out in Table B for various purposes. First of all, we will enter into a contract with your company for the purposes of placing you at our client’s premises. In order to do so, processing some of this data is necessary for complying with legal obligations under various recruitment, fiscal, and social security and immigration laws. We need to keep a copy of your passport to comply with the requirements from the Home Office as we need to verify your right to work in the UK. We also need your National Insurance number to satisfy quarterly HMRC (UK Tax Authorities) reporting requirements. Furthermore, as we are a recruitment agency we have legitimate interests to screen our candidates to assess their suitability for the job and for that reason we would need to check your references in order to verify your job history. In most cases, this is also a client requirement. Please note that unless stated otherwise, as part of our standard compliance checks we will only ask the referee to confirm dates and job title(s). Some clients furthermore require us to do more stringent vetting to ensure that you are the right candidate for the job, for example, if you are going to work for the government or a financial services institution. In that case, we would outline in the contract we sign with your company exactly which documents are required (as mentioned above) and which requirements need to be met in order to carry out a speedy onboarding process.

 

5. Optional Marketing communication

Salt will hold your personal data for marketing purposes which are optional.
The legal basis for collecting and processing this personal data for marketing purposes is ‘consent’ which means Salt will only send you marketing communication if you have opted into receiving this.

If you opted into receiving updates from Salt, we will use your data, preferences, user behaviour and information you have provided to personalize your experience, provide you with relevant service announcements and updates, and to better understand your needs and interests in relation to your job search.

Salt uses the personal data and information you have provided with your CV or portfolio to match your profile with relevant job opportunities.

If you have any further queries about data transfer outside the EEA, please contact GDPR@welovesalt.com.

 

7. How long will we store your data

Your personal data will be stored in our systems for the duration of your assignment and six years thereafter unless there is a direct statutory requirement (that comes into force) under which Salt is obliged to keep your data stored in our databases for a longer period of time. We have decided for this retention period as Salt will have to keep your data on file for a significant period in order to comply with its tax obligations and for the defense of legal claims.

Upon expiry of this retention period, we would only process your data if you stay in touch with us regarding job opportunities.

Your personal data will be stored in our systems for three consecutive years. As long as you are working with Salt’s Recruitment Consultants on your next career step, we will keep your data on file to be able to match you with the latest opportunities and to contact you.

The Salt Group is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We have created this policy to inform you and make sure we are transparent about our processes. This policy might be subject to changes and updates. This version was last updated on 08 May 2018.

This Data Processing Notice applies to you if you (1) are a representative of any of our (prospective) clients or suppliers (e.g. umbrella companies), (2) you reside within the European Union and (3) if your personal data is processed on Salt’s CRM database and other internal systems.
When you use our services, you trust us with your personal data. This Data Processing Notice is meant to help you understand what personal data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. Furthermore, it will briefly outline your rights as a data subject. This is important, and we hope you will take time to read it carefully. Your new rights under GDPR will only apply once the GDPR comes into effect on 25 May 2018.

General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (‘GDPR’) that comes into effect on 25 May 2018, Salt is obliged to issue a Data Processing Notice if we store your personal data in our database.
The GDPR is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46. The GDPR aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate.

This Data Processing Notice will outline:

1. Salt as a data controller
2. Which personal data Salt collect and how we collect it
3. Why we hold your data and legal basis
4. Optional Marketing communication
5. Cross-border transfers
6. How long will we store your data
7. What are your rights under GDPR
8. Automated decision making
9. Lodging a complaint
10. Changes to this Data Processing Notice
11. Contact details for GDPR and data queries

1. Identity and contact details of the Data Controller

Salt has offices worldwide and all our entities are connected via the same internal CRM system and software. All our entities act as Data Controllers as they jointly determine the purposes and means of the processing of your personal data.

The Salt Group entails all our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company, and its subsidiaries and our associated companies. Our offices are listed below:

Legal entities Salt

Your personal data will be stored on our servers and, in particular, Jobscience. Your personal data can, therefore, be accessed and used by our employees who are based in various international offices. All the Salt offices, including our overseas ones, are thus obliged to comply with GDPR when processing your personal data, provided you reside inside the European Union. Your personal data will also be shared with our candidates if we introduce you to them for the purposes of a smooth recruitment process.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will have to disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. We may moreover be under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, to defend our business against a legal claim or in order to enforce or apply our standard terms of business or other agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Salt, our customers, or other parties.

2. Which personal data Salt collects and how we collect it

Salt will collect the following personal data:
⦁ Your full name
⦁ Job title
⦁ Job function
⦁ LinkedIn profile
⦁ Your email addresses
⦁ Your (mobile) telephone number
⦁ Your company details (location, department)

This information may be received from you individually, but Salt is a recruitment company who acquires details from various sources e.g. through job boards, your company website, candidate referrals etc. When we process your data, our Recruitment Consultants will inform you as soon as possible of collecting the data of the source your personal data originates from. If this information is not provided, please let us know straight away and we will confirm how we located your data.

 

3. Why we hold your data and legal basis

Salt will collect your information to carry out our core business and ancillary activities; in particular, Salt will collect your personal data for the following purposes:
⦁ Providing you with information about current or prospective candidates;
⦁ Communicating with you to identify opportunities for your business;
⦁ Contacting you in relation to the performance of a contract with your organisation;
⦁ Evaluating your experience with Salt and our recruitment process;
⦁ Keeping your business updated by means of regular newsletters and how we can better support you to find the right candidate for the job

The legal basis under the current laws for collecting and processing your personal data is legitimate interests pursued by Salt. We have carried out a three-part test (a so-called legitimate interest’s assessment).

Salt will need to process this data to build and maintain relationships with its clients and suppliers. We also need your details to provide the best possible services to our clients, candidates, suppliers, and other business partners.

Furthermore, to support our candidate’s career aspirations and our client’s resourcing needs, we require a database of client and supplier representative data containing historical information as well as current points of contact. We will only collect information that is necessary to satisfy our legitimate business interests. Furthermore, if Salt has entered into a contract with your organisation or is in the process of entering into a contract, it moreover may need your personal data for the performance of a contract as you may be signing some of the contracts on behalf of your organisation.

 

4. Optional Marketing communication

Salt will hold your personal data for marketing purposes which are optional.
The legal basis for collecting and processing this personal data for marketing purposes is ‘consent,’ which means Salt will only send you marketing communication if you have opted into receiving this.

If you opted into receiving updates from Salt, we will use your data, preferences, user behavior, and information you have provided to personalize your experience, provide you with relevant service announcements and updates, and to better understand your needs and interests in relation to your job search.

Salt uses the personal data and information you have provided with your CV or portfolio to match your profile with relevant job opportunities. Our marketing team analyses your profile to provide you with additional information that helps you to better position yourself in the job market, i.e. with invitations to networking events in your city, news and updates relevant for your area of expertise, or job alerts tailored to your preferences, if you have opted in to receiving marketing communication.

You are entitled to withdraw consent or restrict the use of your personal information for whatever purpose at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. To opt out of any data processing and/ or marketing communications from Salt, please click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer of the respective email or use the Preference Centre to update your settings.

 

5. Cross-border transfers

As all our offices are connected via the cloud-based platform, Jobscience, your personal information will be stored and processed in any country where we have offices, and by using our service, you agree to the transfer of information to countries outside of your country of residence; including to the United States, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country. Please note that all Salt entities operate under Standard Contractual Clauses providing protections and safeguards for cross-border transfers. We take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Data Processing policy. A copy of these Standard Contractual Clauses can be made available upon written request by emailing GDPR@welovesalt.com.

Please also note that if we transfer personal data to relevant stakeholders like candidates or other third parties like clients (if you are a supplier representative) or suppliers (if you are a client representative), this data may be transferred outside the EEA. These data transfers are however necessary for the performance of a contract or for pre-contractual steps taken.

Salt also uses various software providers who may transfer your personal data outside the EEA. Salt will ensure that adequate safeguards are in place by 25 May 2018.

If you have any further queries about data transfer outside the EEA, please contact GDPR@welovesalt.com.

 

6. How long will we store your data?

Your personal data will be stored in our systems as long as Salt is in touch with your organisation. If Salt enters into an agreement with your organisation it shall keep your data on file for the duration of the client relationship, and six years thereafter unless there is a direct statutory requirement (that comes into force) under which Salt is obliged to keep your data stored in our internal databases for a longer period of time, or Salt needs to hold your data on file for a longer period of time for the purposes of executing an agreement to which your organisation is a party, to comply with a legal obligation or to defend itself against a legal claim. If, however, we never signed a contract with your organisation we will remove your details from our database if we have not been in touch with you for a period of 6 years, or if it appears that you do not work for your organisation anymore.

 

7. What are your rights under GDPR

Under GDPR you are entitled to various rights:

• You can 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. This means when working with our Recruitment consultants, make sure you notify us of any changes or update your information like email, phone number etc. when they change.
• You can 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). This means should you wish to be removed from Salt’s database, please email GDPR@welovesalt.com. We will review and process your request within 30 days.
• You can object to the 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. This means we will only send you marketing communication if you have opted in. You can opt out at any time by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer of the email in question and will be removed from the Salt marketing mailing list. You can also use the Salt Preference Centre to opt in and out of other communication from Salt.
• You can 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.
• You can request the transfer of your personal information to another party in certain formats, if practicable.
All such requests need to be addressed to GDPR@welovesalt.com.

The fact that you can lodge a request does not necessarily mean we will grant your request at all times, especially if Salt has legitimate interest that outweighs your interests as an individual.
Salt will, however, provide information without undue delay and in any event within one month (this can be extended to 2 months in exceptional circumstances) of the receipt of the request, however where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular, because of its repetitive character, Salt may refuse to act upon your request. In that case, we will inform you within one month of the request of the possibility of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority (ICO) or seeking a judicial remedy.

 

8. Automated decision-making, including profiling

Salt will not conduct any forms of automated processing of your personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you; in particular. to analyse or predict aspects concerning your performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements. We will not make decisions that are based solely on automated processing which produces legal effects or similarly significantly affects you as a data subject.

 

9. Lodging a complaint

If you feel that your rights as a data subject have been breached, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority (in the UK this will be the Information Commissioner’s Office via https://ico.org.uk/concerns/) or seek a legal remedy. However, we strongly encourage you to contact us via GDPR@welovesalt.com. We will then review your complaint at our earliest convenience.

10. Changes to this Data Processing Notice

Any changes we make to our Data Processing Notice in the future will be posted on this website and where appropriate, notified to you by email. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to this Data Processing Notice.
