You have recently applied for a role with Life Path Trust.  As part of preparing for the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we are contacting you to make you aware of our Data Protection Policy. GDPR comes into force on 25 May 2018 in the UK.


The data that we hold

As you have submitted an application to Life Path Trust we have your name, contact, details (address, telephone number, email etc). The GDPR classes your name and address as personal data. The email address, if it includes your name, is also classed as personal data.

We also request what is classed as sensitive personal data in the form of your ethnic origin and details of your criminal record.  Please read our GDPR Notice for Job Applicants for more information available from the HR Department. 

Life Path Trust does not share any of your personal or sensitive data with third parties without explicit expressed consent.


What do we do with the data?

We use the data submitted in our application forms to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for at Life Path Trust. 

We will use your personal information in one or more of the following circumstances:

• To contact you to invite you to a workshop and/or interview should your application be successfully shortlisted

• To advise if your application has been unsuccessful

• Where we need to comply with a legal obligation

• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), and your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms do not override our interests.

This is our legal basis for processing.


Where does the data come from?

Your details will have been obtained from your application form, CV or from a trusted recruitment agency.  You may ask for the data specific to your records in the form of a Data Subject Access Request.
