Data Protection For Job Applications And The Application Procedures

Clancy collects and processes personal data of job applicants, including apprenticeships and graduate schemes in accordance with Clancy’s application procedure. Processing will be carried out electronically when an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the Clancy recruitment email address

If your application is successful, the personal data submitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. The data will be transferred to your personnel file and retained for the duration of your employment at Clancy and 6 years post-employment.

If your application for employment is unsuccessful, Clancy’s Recruitment Team will seek your consent to hold your personal data on file for up to 6 months after the recruitment process. If consent is provided, paper copies of your data will be securely destroyed and securely deleted after the 6 months has lapsed.

Lawful Basis For The Processing

The GDPR/DPA or country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Clancy set out the lawful basis for processing personal data. Processing of personal data may be necessary for contract purposes, for example, for the supply of goods or to provide any other service. The same applies to such processing operations, which are necessary for conducting pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries concerning our products or services.

Clancy is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of you or of another natural person. For example, if a visitor were injured on a Clancy site, their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information may need to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party.

Processing not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal grounds, may be necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Clancy, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are permissible if they have been specifically mentioned and are in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Clancy. It is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you or your employer are a Clancy client. We will always seek your consent prior to using your data for any purpose that is not covered by another lawful basis.

The Legitimate Interests Pursued By Clancy

The processing of personal data to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees is considered a ‘Legitimate Interest Pursued by Clancy’.

Period For Which The Personal Data Will Be Stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or the initiation of a contract.

Cross-Border Transfer

Where Cloud-based applications or storage are used, we may transfer data to countries outside of European Economic Area (EEA). We will make every effort to ensure that data remains in the EEA, but it is possible that data will be transferred to countries, which may have data protection rules that are different to those of your country. However, we will ensure that any such transfers comply with applicable data protection laws and that your data remains protected to the standards described in this Privacy Policy. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal data for legal requirements.

Provision Of Personal Data As Statutory Or Contractual Requirement

The provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or as a result of contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract with personal data provided by you, which must subsequently be processed by us. You are, for example, obliged to provide Clancy with personal data when Clancy signs a contract with your organisation. The non-provision of personal data may have the consequence that the contract with you cannot be completed.

Purpose Of Clancy Websites

We adopt the above policy because we assume that visitors to our sites have a professional interest in the products and services we offer.
