Who Has Access To The Data?

Data will be shared internally in vivoHR so that all employees of the business can provide HR Support as appropriate when required and to enable us to administer and manage our business activities.

We will share your personal data as appropriate with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table in paragraph 2 above:

  • Service providers who provide us with IT, system administration and website services
  • Professional advisers including consultants, lawyers, bankers, accountants, bookkeepers, auditors and insurers who provide us with business development and marketing consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services
  • Service providers who provide us, and you as one of our clients, with HR Management software – any such sharing of data is only done with your explicit consent and under your specific direction and instruction
  • Outsourced administration services such as audio typists – providing transcripts of meeting recordings
  • HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities based in the United Kingdom and other relevant jurisdictions who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances
  • Third parties to whom we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets

We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of the third parties we contract with and may be engaged in, among other things, processing of HR-related data.

If your personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of protection in respect of your personal information as we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely by ensuring that at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; or
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or
  • Where we use providers based in the United States, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.

If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

Please email the Privacy Compliance Manager if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

How Does The Company Protect The Data?

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

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

How Long Does The Company Keep Data For?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By law we have to keep basic information about our clients, including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data, for six years after the end of the financial year in which they cease being customers for tax purposes.

We may retain personal data about job applicants, employees, ex-employees, workers, and contractors of clients for as long as we continue to work with the client, and as long as it is necessary for us to retain that data and will only do so in accordance with the data retention periods set out in our clients’ privacy notices issued to about job applicants, employees, ex-employees, workers, and contractors.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

What Are Your Rights?

As a data subject, you have a number of rights – you can:

  • Know what data we hold about you
  • access and obtain a copy of your data on request, and to request a transfer of data to another data controller
  • require the Company to change incorrect or incomplete data
  • require the Company to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing
  • object to the processing of your data where the Company is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing
  • to be notified of a data security breach
  • to withdraw consent processing where this was the legal basis relied upon for any such processing
  • to complain to the Information Commissioner Office

If you wish to exercise any of these rights you should email the Privacy Compliance Manager.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time and we will notify you of any such changes by email. A copy of the most current version of this Privacy Notice is always available by clicking on the link in our email signatures, or may be requested by emailing the Privacy Compliance Manager.
