The categories of your personal data that we will be processing for the purposes of this privacy notice include:

You may give us information about you by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise or submitting a job application.  The information you give us will be clear from the forms you were asked to complete and may include your name, address, e-mail address, job title, phone number and information you disclose to us as part of our correspondence.

Why our use of your personal data is lawful

In order for our use of your personal data to be lawful, we need to meet one (or more) conditions in the data protection legislation.

For the purpose of this privacy notice, the relevant condition(s) that we are meeting are:

  • to comply with any contract entered into with you, or to take steps prior to entering into such a contract: for example to enable us deal with or progress any application for employment made by you, or a request for us to provide you with any other services;
  • to comply with legal requirements placed on us, for example as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure;
  • to pursue legitimate interests of Trident, which we have explained below, and
  • to protect our legal position in the event of legal proceedings.

We may sometimes need to process your data to pursue our legitimate business interests. For example, we may need to share some information with our subsidiaries or other third parties as a matter of our business monitoring including in relation to equality and diversity.

We will also monitor the information collected through our website for example to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer; to report on page views and general content consumption of our website; and to manage the requests we receive and services we offer.

When we determine if we should process your personal data for a legitimate purpose we consider the impact on your privacy and data protection rights and we will not process your data for these purposes if your interests override our legitimate interests.


Who we will make your personal data available to

We sometimes need to make personal data available to other organisations. These might include our subsidiaries, contracted partners (who we have employed to process your personal data on our behalf) and/or other organisations (with whom we need to share your personal data for specific purposes).

Where we need to share your personal data with others, we ensure that this sharing complies with data protection legislation.

For the purpose of this privacy policy:

We may share your personal information with other organisations (such as local authorities, the Courts or the Police) as required by law, or to meet our obligations as a charity and/or registered provider of social housing.

We will also share your personal information with selected third parties including business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you. For example, we work closely with marketing platforms (such as mailchimp) to allow us to send appropriate marketing emails to you, and with our other software suppliers to help us maintain our databases. Where we share information in this way, we always take appropriate steps to ensure that your personal details remain secure and that the sharing is in line with the relevant legislation. We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Trident, our employees, or others.

We will not transfer your personal data outside of the EEA

 

Keeping your personal data

We will only keep your personal data for as long as we need it for the purpose(s) of doing business, after which point it will be securely destroyed.

We will regularly review the information we hold, and tend to review our databases every 3 years. If we no longer need to keep your details to provide you with services or provide you with information about opportunities and servcies available to you, we will ensure that it is securely deleted.

When you unsubscribe from our marketing material, your details will be securely deleted from our database.   Please also refer to the section on cookies below.

We have implemented generally acceptable standards of security but unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The world that we live in is changing fast.  In the future we may need to process your data for reasons we have not yet considered. If in the future we do need to process your personal data for a new purpose we will provide you with information about that and any other relevant information.
