Access to your information and correction
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email or write to us at the address provided in section 11 of this statement. We may make a small charge for this service.
We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.
Use of Data
ASE will never use personal data received for one purpose in relation to another, and where we have no further reason to retain personal data we will ensure its secure destruction. Personal data is never shared with a third party unless clearly stated at the point of provision and with documented consent. I.e. recruitment process
Current, former and job applicant data
Retention and destruction details in relation to current and former ASE employees can be accessed by current and former ASE employees by emailing our Data Protection and Compliance officer
When we receive personal data via CV, online applications etc. we will only ever use that data to process the application. Where we feel it appropriate to disclose that data to a third party, for example, to obtain a reference or conduct a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, we will only ever do so with the applicants permission and, in the case of DBS checks, where deemed appropriate to the role.
While, as previously stated, it is ASE policy not to disclose information to third parties, unless clearly stated at the point of provision and with documented consent, there are circumstances under which we are legally obligated to do so, for example:
- Where we are required to do so by law
- In relation to any legal proceedings, either ongoing or prospective
- With the intention of exercising, establishing or defending our legal rights (including providing information to other party(s) in respect of the prevention of fraud for example)
- Disclosure with a purchaser(s) (or prospective purchaser(s)) of any business or asset that we may either be in the process of, or planning to dispose of
ASE has implemented industry standard levels of technology and operational security in order to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. All ASE employees follow a business-wide security policy. Only after signing the appropriate confidentiality agreements are authorised ASE personnel provided access to personally identifiable information.
ASE policy is to use secure socket layer (SSL) technology for the protection of credit card information submitted through web forms. This policy is also required for any fulfilment agents of the business.
