Our Data Protection Consultant is David Townsend of Sapphire Consulting Ltd who can be contacted via the email address: dpo@macildowie.com.

What personal data do we collect about you?  How will we use that personal data?

When a new employee starts with Macildowie Associates Ltd, we ask them to provide an emergency contact, for use only in an emergency. We ask for the contact’s name, contact numbers and relationship to the employee. Once returned to us, this information is stored in paper form in a locked cabinet managed by our HR team. The data is also entered onto our master spreadsheet and used if there is ever an emergency.

We do not process any Special Category data. 

What is our legal basis for processing your personal data?

We need a legal basis in order to process your personal data.  We process all of the data laid out above as we have a legitimate interest in doing so, therefore our legal basis is “Legitimate Interest”. 

You have the right to object to our processing your data using legitimate interest.  Please speak to us if you have any concerns.

Do we use any automated decision making?

We do not use any automated decision making.

Who do we share your personal data with?

We do not share your personal data with any third party, other than a public body in case of emergency. For example, we may pass your personal data to a member of hospital staff or the police staff if required in the best interests of our employee.

Do we transfer your personal data outside of the EU or EEA?

We do not transfer your personal data outside of the EU.

How long do we keep your personal data for?

We will hold your data for the length of the employee’s employment or the length of the assignment on which they are currently contracted. After this time the paper copies will be shredded and the electronic records deleted.
