CANDIDATE PRIVACY NOTICE

PURPOSE OF THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

Aimé Leon Dore is a "controller" in relation to personal data. 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 data 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 UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).

When we refer to Aimé Leon Dore, we mean Aimé Leon Dore Inc (based in the US) and Aimé Leon Dore Ltd (based in the UK). While successful candidates will be engaged by Aimé Leon Dore Ltd, Aimé Leon Dore Inc, the US parent company, will be involved in decision making, and is the initial recipient of all candidate data.

For these purposes, Aimé Leon Dore Inc has appointed Aimé Leon Dore Ltd as its representative in the UK, and so any queries should be addressed to Aimé Leon Dore Ltd. You can contact Aimé Leon Dore Ltd at its registered office address at 85 Great Portland Street, London, United Kingdom, W1W 7LT, or via email at privacy@aimeleondore.com

If you are successful in your application, your information will be used and kept in accordance with our internal staff Privacy Policy, which will be provided separately.

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.

• Kept securely.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE WILL 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 cover letter.

• Other information including name, address and telephone number.

• Any information you provide to us during an interview.

• Any information provided by your referees or which we obtain from your or your previous employer’s website, or from public profiles such as LinkedIn.

HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION 

We collect personal information about you from the following sources:

• You, the candidate.

• LinkedIn.

• Personal portfolios or websites.

• Referees you have provided.

HOW WE WILL USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION 

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

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

• Communicate with you about the recruitment process.

• Contact any referees you provide.

• 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 since it would be beneficial to our business to appoint someone to that role.

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

Having received your CV we will then process that information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role. If you do, we will decide whether your application is strong enough to invite you for an interview. If we decide to call you for an interview, we will use the information you provide to us at the interview to decide whether to offer you the role.

IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you fail, when requested to provide information 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.

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

Your personal information is collected through our online recruitment platform (which is operated by a third party provider, currently “Greenhouse”) for the purposes of processing your application.

All 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 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.

If you list a referee, we will contact them with basic details about you to confirm your reference. We will also hold the referee’s name, contact details, professional information (such as employer and job title) and details of their relationship with you. We will use this information as necessary for our legitimate interests in evaluating candidates and as necessary to exercise and perform our employment law obligations and rights. Referee information will be kept alongside the applicant's information. 

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.

While your information will initially be received through a US based platform, and by a US company, once it is provided to Aimé Leon Dore Ltd it is not subsequently transferred out of the UK or European Economic Area other than by return to Aimé Leon Dore Inc.

DATA RETENTION

We will retain your personal information for a period of 6 months after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to appoint you to a role. 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 applicable laws and regulations.

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.

LEGAL CLAIMS

Where we consider there to be a risk that we may need to defend or bring legal claims, we may retain your personal information as necessary for our legitimate interests in ensuring that we can properly bring or defend legal claims.  We may also need to share this information with our insurers or legal advisers.  How long we keep this information for will depend on the nature of the claim and how long we consider there to be a risk that we will need to defend or bring a claim.

YOUR RIGHTS IN CONNECTION WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION

Data protection law gives you a number of rights when it comes to personal information we hold about you.  The key rights are set out below.  More information about your rights can be obtained from the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).  Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

Be informed in a clear, transparent and easily understandable way about how we use your personal information and about your rights.  This is why we are providing you with the information in this notice.  If you require any further information about how we use your personal information, please let us know.

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 (for instance, we may need to continue using your personal data to comply with our legal obligations).  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 us using your information on this basis and we do not have a compelling legitimate basis for doing so which overrides your rights, interests, and freedoms (for instance, we may need it to defend a legal claim).  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 where you provided it to us and we are using it based on your consent, or to carry out a contract with you, and we process it using automated means.

Withdraw consent.  In the limited circumstances where we are relying on your consent (as opposed to the other bases set out above) to the collection, processing, and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.  Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another compelling legitimate interest in doing so.

Lodge a complaint.  If you think that we are using your information in a way which breaches data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your national data protection supervisory authority (if you are in the UK, this will be the ICO).

If you want to review, verify, correct, or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us.

No fee usually required.  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 for access is clearly unfounded or excessive.  Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

What we may need from you.  We may need to request specific information from you to help us understand the nature of your request, to confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights).  This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. If we request any identification from you for this purpose, it is on the basis that it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, and we will only keep and use this until your identity has been verified.

Timescale.  Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it.  We will respond to your request as soon as we can.  Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we will let you know.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

Any changes we make to our privacy notice in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail or otherwise.  Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy notice.
