Where we store your personal data

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers at a suitable third-party hosting agent within the UK or EEA.

Disposal of Information

Your personal data should only be held for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes it was collected for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. How long your data is stored is largely down to your employer.
When you leave your employer’s employment your employer should mark you as a “leaver” which will delete non-essential items of information including for example your bank details; however other personal data about you will be sorted by your employer until they operate the relevant departed employee delete function.
Following an authorised termination of the agreement between us and your employer, we will delete all personal user data from our servers after 30 days have elapsed. After a further 30 days, this data will be removed from our rolling back up. After this point, we will retain only company level data appropriate for recording the previous existence of our commercial relationship. None of your personal data is stored.

Third party sites and links

The Application may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of partner organisations. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Your legal rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under UK GDPR in relation to your personal data. These may include the right to:

  • request access to your personal data;
  • request correction of your personal data;
  • request erasure of your personal data;
  • object to processing of your personal data;
  • request restriction of processing your personal data;
  • request transfer of your personal data; and
  • withdraw consent.

These rights are complex and subject to the rules set out in the UK GDPR.
While most of these rights are enforceable against your employer (as Data Processor) we have given your employer a commitment that we will assist them to comply with their obligations under the UK GDPR.

Data Security

As an organisation we take data security very seriously indeed.
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. 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.

Changes to our privacy policy

Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on the website and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. You should check for updates each time you log in to the App.
