If this is the case, we will explain to you exactly what your data will be used for. You can withdraw your consent at any time, and wherever possible, any of your data that has been used for publicity purposes will be deleted.

In certain instances, Elbi Digital collect and use your personal information by relying on the legitimate interest legal basis.

By subscribing to Elbi Digital emails or opting in to email communication from Elbi Digital you grant us the right to use the email address for email marketing.
If you have provided us with your postal address or telephone number, we may send you direct mail or telephone you about our work unless you have told us that you would prefer not to receive such information, or we receive a notification from the Fundraising Preference Service that you have requested to stop marketing communications. We also actively check telephone numbers against the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and will only make telephone calls to you where your telephone number is listed on the TPS, if you have specifically told us that you do not object to such calls and have consented to receive them from Elbi Digital.

We will never pass your personal information on to other organisations for them to use for their own marketing purposes.
However, we may disclose your personal information under the following circumstances:
· To third parties who provide a service to us and are data processors. This would include our trusted partners that work with us in connection with our charitable purposes, LoveShop and ElbiDrop product supplier, and other entities that act as fundraisers for Elbi Digital or provide Elbi Digital information and marketing services (subject to your communication preferences and our internal policies and procedures). We require these third parties to comply strictly with our instructions and Data Protection Laws and we will make sure that appropriate controls are in place. We enter into contracts with all our data processors and regularly monitor their activities to ensure they are complying with Elbi Digital policies and procedures.
· Where we are under duty to disclose your personal information in order to comply with law or the disclosure is ‘necessary’ for purposes of national security, taxation and criminal investigation or we have your written consent.

We collect it in a variety of ways. For example, you may have filled in an application form, or submitted a CV or resume, you may have provided your passport details or other identification documents, or we may have collected it through interviews or other forms of assessment, like online tests.
We may also collect information about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers. Elbi Digital will only seek information about you from third parties once we’ve made you an offer. The exception is for roles based in schools which require us to obtain references prior to interview. In all cases the application process will make clear at what point we will be contacting third parties.
Where will we keep your data?
Your personal information will be stored, securely, in several places: on your application record, in our Recruitment and Selection system, our HR management systems and on other IT systems.
Why do we need your personal data?
We need to process your data in order to enter into a working agreement with you. In some cases we need to process your data to ensure we are complying with our legal obligations, eg checking an individual’s right to work in the UK.
We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data during the recruitment process and for keeping records of ghe process. It allows us to manage that process, assess and confirm your suitability for the role and decide who to offer a role to. We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to, and defend against, legal claims. Where we are relying on legitimate interest as a reason for processing data, we have considered whether or not those interests override the rights and freedoms of the applicant and have concluded that they do not.
We process health information if we need to make a reasonable adjustment to the recruitment process for the candidates who have a disability. This is to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
For some roles Elbi Digital is obliged to seek information about criminal convictions and offences. This is necessary to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
Elbi Digital will not use your personal information for any purpose other than the recruitment exercise for which you have applied.
How long will we keep your data?
Personal information about unsuccessful candidates will be held for one year after the recruitment exercise has been completed, it will then be destroyed. The exception to this is in Northern Ireland where we have a legal obligation to retain the data for Fair Employment reporting purposes for three years. Interview notes for all unsuccessful applicants are destroyed after six months. We retain de-personalised statistical information about applicants to help inform our recruitment activities, but no individuals are identifiable from that data.
If you set up an account on our online recruitment system, we will hold your data on file until you delete your account, when your data will be deleted and destroyed.
If your application is successful, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained until the end of your working relationship with Elbi Digital, either in a paid or unpaid capacity.

We may then share your data with third parties in order to conduct any necessary background checks and vetting processes, such as contacting previous employers/referees to obtain a reference; and/or the Disclosure and Barring Service to conduct criminal l record checks. As part of the recruitment process, we will make clear to you which checks will be required.
What if you don’t provide personal data?
You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to us during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information Elbi Digital with the information, we may not be able to process your application properly, or at all.
You are under no obligation to provide information for equal opportunities monitoring purposes and there are no consequences for your application if you choose not to provide such information.
Automated decision making
Some of Elbi Digital recruitment process is solely based on automated decision-making. For example, when applicants are asked to confirm they have the right to work in the UK; or when applicants confirm that they are not barred from undertaking roles working within regulated activity; or whether the applicant has a clean and valid driving licence where driving is an essential requirement for the role.
If the applicant is unble to filfil the requirement they will not be able to progress any further with their application. Should an applicant wish to challenge any automated decision within the recruitment process they should contact the recruitment team via email:

For example, you may have filled in an application form, or submitted a CV or resume; you may have provided your passport details or other identity documents; from forms completed by you at the start or during your work with us; from correspondence with you; or through interviews, meetings or other assessments.
We may also collect information about you from third parties, such as recruitment agencies, references supplied by former employers, and information from criminal records checks as permitted by law.
Where will we keep your data?
Your personal information will be stored, securely, in several places: in your personnel file (hard copy and electronic staff file), in our HR management systems and in other IS systems (including Elbi Digital internal network and email system).
Why do we need your personal data?
Elbi Digital needs to process your data to enter into a working relationship with you and to meet our contractual obligations under any agreement with you. For example, if you are an employee we need to process your data to provide you with an employment contract, to pay you in accordance with that contract and to administer any benefits.
In some cases, Elbi Digital needs to process data to ensure that we are complying with our legal obligations. For example, it is required to check a worker’s right to work in the UK, to deduct tax, to comply with health and safety laws and to enable employees to take periods of leave to which they are entitled. For certain positions, it’s necessary to carry out criminal records checks to ensure that individuals are permitted to carry out the role in question.
In other cases, Elbi Digital has a legitimate interest in processing personal data before, during and after the end of the working relationship. Processing staff data allows the organisation to:
· Run recruitment and talent management processes;
· Maintain accurate and up-to-date staff records and contact details (including details of who to contact in the event of an emergency), and records of contractual and statutory rights;
· Operate and keep a record of disciplinary and grievance processes, to ensure acceptable conduct within the workplace;
· Operate and keep a record of employee performance and related processes and workforce management processes;
· Operate and keep a record of absence and absence management procedures, to allow effective workforce management and ensure that employees are receiving the pay and other benefits to which they are entitled;
· Obtain occupational health advice, to ensure that it complies with duties in relation to individuals with disabilities, meet its obligations under health and safety law, and ensure that workers are receiving the sick pay or other benefits to which they are entitled;
· Operate and keep a record of other types of leave (including maternity, paternity, adoption, parental and shared parental leave), to allow effective workforce management, to ensure that Elbi Digital complies with duties in relation to leave entitlement, and to ensure that workers are receiving pay or other benefits to which they are entitled;
· Ensure effective general HR and business administration;
· Provide references on request for current or former employees;
· Respond to and defend against legal claims; and
· Maintain and promote equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Where Elbi Digital is relying on legitimate interest as a reason for processing employee data, we have considered whether, by collecting the data, The Operator is over-riding the rights and freedoms of our employees and workers and has concluded that we are not.
Some special categories of personal data, such as information about health or medical conditions, are processed to carry out employment law obligations (such as those in relation to employees with disabilities and for health and safety purposes). Information about trade union membership is processed to allow Elbi Digital to operate check-off for union subscriptions (where this is processed through payroll).
Where we process other special categories of personal data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health or religion or belief, this is done for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring.
Who has access to the data?
Your information will be shared internally, including with members of the People Team (including payroll), the Finance Team (including the Pensions Team), your line manager, managers in the business area in which you work and any other members of staff for whom access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles.
Elbi Digital shares your data with third parties in order to obtain pre-employment references from other employers and, if applicable to your role, to obtain necessary criminal records checks from the Disclosure and Barring Service, Disclosure Scotland and AccessNI. Elbi Digital may also share your data with third parties in the context of TUPE transfers. In those circumstances the data will be subject to confidentiality arrangements. The services we provide to children and young people are subject to external regulation, so if you work in a service your personal data will be shared with inspectors, and commissioned service data may be shared with the commissioner.
Elbi Digital also shares your data with third parties that process data on our behalf, in connection with payroll, the provision of benefits, the provision of occupational health services, and the off-site archiving of personal data once you have left Elbi Digital employment.
Elbi Digital may transfer your data to countries outside the European Economic Area – see ‘Where we store and process your information’ section below.
How long will we keep your data?
Elbi Digital will hold your personal data for the duration of your working relationship with us. After the end of your working relationship with us, due to the nature of the work that Elbi Digital carries out, and in order to meet our safeguarding commitments, we may hold some of your data until your 75th birthday depending on your role.
