Lawton Communications Group
GDPR Article 13 & 14 Notice

What is the purpose of this document?

Lawton Communications Group (LCG) Privacy & Transparency Notice pursuant to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Articles 13 and 14.

This notice is intended for individuals with whom we deal in our business, including candidates for jobs with us. It is not intended for our employees. We categorise those individuals (data subjects) as follows:

We obtain and process personal data in different ways depending upon you, the purpose of the processing and the way in which we obtained your personal data.

In most circumstances your data will only be processed within the UK or EEA. If for any reason we need to have your data processed elsewhere we will either follow the privacy protection guidance of the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or inform you of that processing, any privacy risks involved and what we have done to minimise those risks. In most circumstances we would also seek your consent for that.

You can at any time ask us to tell you what personal data we hold relating to you.

You also have the right to ask us to rectify your data if it is inaccurate, erase it or restrict the processing of it. In some circumstances you can ask us to provide it to you in a format which would allow you to transfer it digitally to another.

Where we have requested and you have given us consent to process your data you may withdraw that consent at any time.

Were our business to be sold all your data would be transferred to the purchaser so that they could use it in the same way as we do now.

If you are at all concerned about our processing of your data please let us know by contacting our Data Protection Officer (DPO) at dpo@lawtoncommsgroup.com. You may also complain about it to the Office of the Information Commissioner (ICO) at ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint.

We process your data:

Legitimate Interest

We have a legitimate interest in corresponding or speaking with you as you will have indicated to us or our associates that you wish us to do so or we have previously dealt with you in that connection, or we are doing so on behalf of our client. We do not need your consent. You can however at any time tell us that you do not wish to us to contact you again.

Consent

If we wish to process your data for any other purpose, we will notify you and/or seek your consent.

If we use your data in order to send you marketing material (advertising) about our services we will only do so:

Those with whom we share it

Some of our data, which could include your personal data, is processed for us off site by third parties. For example the companies that we use for bulk mailing. Some may be processed outside the EEA/UK.

Your contact details may be held in our Customer Relationship Management software which is hosted by another.

We may, in connection with a project on which we are working with you, provide it to others working on the same project.

We will not otherwise supply your data to any third party for their own use and for their own benefit without your consent.

Retention

Your data will be retained for so long as we hold records of the project with which you are involved. If we hold your contact details separately from any such matter we will hold them until you tell us that we should delete them.

Why we need your data

Without your data we would not have the information necessary to be able to communicate with you or provide you with the services that you want us to provide.

Where we get it

Most of your data held by us will have come from you. Some may have been obtained from directories or persons recommending you to us.

We have a legitimate interest in using your data for those purposes. We do not need your consent. You can however at any time tell us that you do not wish to us to contact you again at all, or that you do not wish to receive marketing material.

Those with whom we share it

Some of our data, which could include your personal data, is processed off site by third parties. For example the companies that we use for bulk mailing. Some may be processed outside the EEA/UK. We may, in connection with a project on which we are working with your organisation, provide it to others working on the same project. We may also provide it to third parties seeking our recommendation of your organisation or someone like you.

Retention

If we decide not to employ you, most personal data about you will be deleted/destroyed six months after that decision is made and we will retain only sufficient data to identify that we have considered you for employment but that your application was unsuccessful. If we think we might want to employ you in future and tell you so, we will retain indefinitely all the data that we have about you. If we employ you, all the data about you will be transferred to your HR file and used and retained in accordance with our policies for employment.

Why we need your data

Without your data we would be unable to assess you, or contact you.

Where we got it

The usual source of your data is you or a recruitment consultant or “job board”. Some data may come from referees or those we use to verify the information that you provide. We may also carry out general research about you including viewing your social media account(s).
