We collect your information as part of the initial steps of the recruitment process which may lead to us creating a contract between you and us if we offer you a position at Canopius.
By law, we must ask whether you have any disabilities. This is to give you the option of providing that information if you want to do so.
We collect the optional information to allow us to monitor our goal of promoting equality, diversity and inclusiveness in the recruitment process. This is in line with the legal obligations we have under relevant equality laws.
If, during the recruitment process, we need you to agree before we can process your information, we will make this clear at the time we collect the information.
You do not have to provide any of the optional information in order to be considered for a position.
We will use your information for:
• managing your application;
• creating records in HR and recruitment systems; and
• producing reports using information with any details that could identify people removed to monitor equality, diversity and inclusiveness in the recruitment process.
We will keep your information for 18 months from the date you submit your application.
If you accept a job offer from us, we will keep your CV in your personnel file.

• The right to ask us for a copy of your personal information
• The right to ask us to correct or delete your personal information if it is inaccurate
• The right to ask us to delete your personal information from our systems
• The right to restrict how we process your personal information
• The right to object to us using your personal information for communications and marketing
• The right to ask us to transfer your personal information to another company
• The right to make a complaint to our data protection regulator (the Information Commissioner’s Office) and take court action against us
We will respond to you within one month of receiving your request, unless you make several or particularly complicated requests, in which case we may extend this time by a further two months. We will tell you if we need to use this extra time, and will explain why.
We will not charge you for responding to your request unless we can show that you are making an unreasonable number of repetitive requests or that your request is not based on fact or realistic considerations (or similar). In this exceptional case, we may charge you a reasonable fee or refuse your request.
If you disagree with our decision to charge a fee or refuse your request, you can raise your concerns with the Information Commissioner’s Office. https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
To help us respond to your request, we may ask you to confirm your identity to make sure we do not give your personal information to the wrong person.
Your right to ask us for a copy of your personal information
You have the right to ask us for a copy of the personal information that we hold about you.
If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to the Group Data Protection Officer at Gallery 9, One Lime Street, London, EC3M 7HA.
Your right to ask us to correct or delete your personal information if it is inaccurate
It is important to us that your personal information is accurate and up to date.
If you believe that some information is inaccurate or should be deleted from our records, you can either update your information yourself online or email us at email@example.com. Or you can write to the Group Data Protection Officer at Gallery 9, One Lime Street, London, EC3M 7HA with details of your request.
Your right to ask us to delete your personal information from our systems
You can ask us to delete your personal information from our systems if you believe that:
• we no longer need to process your personal information as part of the application process;
• the way we have processed your personal information is not in line with data protection laws; or
• we have to delete your personal information in order to keep to another law.
We may choose to refuse your request if we believe that:
• we have to keep your personal information by law;
• we need your personal information in order to provide your employment and the associated benefits; or
• we need your personal information in order to make or defend a legal claim.
Your right to restrict how we process your personal information
You can ask us to temporarily stop processing your personal information if you believe that:
• we should not process your information while we are involved in a disagreement with you over whether your personal information is accurate;
• we have processed your personal information in a way that is not in line with data protection laws but, rather than wanting us to delete your information, you would prefer us to take other action to put this right; or
• we no longer need the information but you do not want us to remove it from our systems as you need it to make or defend a legal claim.
If we agree to your request, we will not process your personal information without first telling you why the restriction has been lifted.
Even if you ask us to restrict the way we process your personal information, we can still continue to:
• store it;
• process it if the law says we must;
• use it to make or defend a legal claim; or
• use it to protect the rights of another person.

You have the right, at any time, to ask us to stop contacting you. If you want to do so, please click ‘unsubscribe’ at the bottom of any emails you receive from us.
Your right to ask us to transfer your personal information to another company
You have the right to receive a copy of the personal information you have provided to us, and which we process using our computer systems, in a format that can be read by another person’s or company’s computer system.
You have the right to transfer that copy of your personal information to another company, or you can ask us to do this for you, if this is technically possible.
We can refuse to do this if we feel that it would negatively affect the rights of another person.
Your right to make a complaint to our data protection regulator (the information Commissioner’s Office) and take court action against us
If we do not take action on your request within one month of receiving it and do not explain our reasons why, you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office. https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
