For the purpose of this Notice, “personal data” means information relating to an identified or identifiable individual, and “processing” means any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as creating, collecting, accessing, recording, organizing, storing, altering, retrieving, using, disclosing or destroying the data. Within the category of personal data, there are “special categories of personal data”, which require a greater degree of protection whilst processing.  This includes data on physical and mental health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, trade union membership, religious beliefs, sexual life and genetic and biometric data.

Where required, we indicate whether and why you must provide us with personal data, as well as the consequences of failing to do so. If you do not provide personal data when requested, we may not be able to manage the recruitment process.
