DATA RETENTION POLICY
Last updated: 12/04/2019
The Data Protection Act 2018 requires the Company to have in place a data retention policy that clearly defines how long we will hold your personal data, together with the reasoning behind the decision to hold that data.
Apart from exceptional circumstances which must be raised with, and approved by Data Protection Manager, all personal data must be retained in accordance with this policy. Often, in respect of certain types of information, we are under a legal obligation to retain the information for a minimum period of time. Where this is the case, the minimum time we have stipulated is the same as the time required under law. Furthermore, there are occasions where it is appropriate for us to retain personal data for longer than the period prescribed in law (for example, where there may be disputes in process or expected where the data will form part of the evidence in the case). In such circumstances the requirements of the litigation will override the policies outlined below.
LKA Recruitment is committed to enforcing this policy as it applies to all forms of data. The effectiveness of Top Job Recruitment efforts, however, depends largely on employees. If you feel that you or someone else may have violated this policy, you should report the incident immediately to Data Protection Manager. If employees do not report inappropriate conduct, the Company may not become aware of a possible violation of this policy and may not be able to take appropriate corrective action. No one will be subject to and the Company prohibits, any form of discipline, reprisal, intimidation, or retaliation for reporting incidents of inappropriate conduct of any kind, pursuing any record destruction claim, or cooperating in related investigations.
