Data is stored in a limited range of places, including in the organisation's HR management systems and in other IT systems. This is inline with GDPR and professionally reviewed quarterly to provide a high level of protection.


Why does the organisation process personal data?

HRVitals needs to process data to enter into an engagement with you and to meet its obligations under the contractual arrangements between us. 

For example, it needs to process your data to provide you with a consultant agreement.

In other cases, the organisation has a legitimate interest in processing personal data before, during and after the end of the consultant engagement.

Processing data allows the organisation to:

  • offer consultant  engagements to appropriate and suitably qualified individuals;
  • maintain accurate and up-to-date HR records and contact details (including details of who to      contact in the event of an emergency), and records of contractual rights  and obligations;
  • operate and keep a record of hours to allow effective workforce management;
  • ensure effective general HR  and business administration;
  • ensure health and safety compliance; and
  • respond to and defend  against legal claims.

HRVitals does not process special categories of personal data.


Who has access to data?

Your information will not be shared internally, unless it is with another consultant who will be working with you, or the accountant who will only access data of business transactions.  The organisation will not transfer your data to countries outside the European Economic Area. The organisation will not share your information with external organisations, third parties, without your written consent. 


How does the organisation protect data?

The organisation takes the security of your data seriously. The organisation has internal policies and controls in place to try to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by its employees in the performance of their duties. 

The organisation does not engage with third parties to process personal data on its behalf. 


For how long does the organisation keep data?

The organisation will hold your personal data for the duration of your engagement as a customer. The periods for which your data is held after the end of your engagement are agreed with you at the end of the customer agreement.

  • require the organisation to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing;
  • object to the processing of your data where the organisation is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing; and
