What Is The Legal Basis For Processing Your Data

We rely on the following main grounds to Process Personal Data of candidates, clients, suppliers, website users or other third parties:

  • Necessary for entering into, or performing, a contract – to perform obligations that we undertake in providing a service to you, or to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us (such as where you are a candidate or a client).
  • Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation – we are subject to certain legal requirements which may require us to Process your Personal Data. We may also be obliged by law to disclose your Personal Data to a regulatory body or law enforcement agency.
  • Necessary for the purposes of Legitimate Interests – we, or a third party, will Process your Personal Data for the purposes of our (or a third party’s) Legitimate Interests, provided we have established that those interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms, including your right to have your Personal Data protected. Our Legitimate Interests include responding to requests and enquiries from you or a third party, optimizing our website and customer experience, informing you about our products and services and ensuring that our operations are conducted in an appropriate and efficient manner.
  • Consent – in some circumstances, we may ask for your Consent to Process your Personal Data.
  • Necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.



Where we need to collect Personal Data as it is necessary for entering into or performing a contract or due to legal obligations and you fail to provide that Personal Data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (e.g., to provide you with our services). In this case, we may have to cancel our provision of services and would notify you in advance of doing so.



We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the Processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us at

If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so or seek your Consent, providing you with a clear, conspicuous, and readily available mechanism for you to exercise choice.

Please note that we may Process your Personal Data without your knowledge or Consent where this is required or permitted by law.


How We Share Your Personal Data

We will not sell or rent to anyone the Personal Data provided to us or obtained by us.

In certain circumstances we will share your Personal Data with other parties. When we do, we take responsibility and bear liability for such sharing in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable law.

We a share your Personal Data with the following third parties:

  • Service providers acting as processors who provide IT and system administration services;
  • Professional advisers acting as Data Controllers;
  • Trusted third parties who provide employment related services for us, including reference, qualification, and criminal record checking (where required), evaluation or skills tests. In such circumstances we may disclose Special Category data; or
  • Regulators and other authorities who require reporting of Processing activities in certain circumstances.

We may also share it with third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your Personal Data in the same way as set out in this Privacy Notice.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your Personal Data and to treat it in accordance with applicable laws. We do not allow our third party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes and only permit them to Process your Personal Data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We also collect, use, and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for purposes which include monitoring how we are doing against our Diversity and Equality targets. Aggregated data is not Personal Data as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Personal Data where we are required by law to report on mixes of religious beliefs or political opinions or affiliations.


International Transfers of Data

We share your Personal Data within AA&C. We transfer the Personal Data we collect about you to countries outside of the country in which the information originally was collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Notice. If you would like to know more information about our data transfers, please contact us on

Data Security

AA&C uses industry standard physical, technical, and administrative controls to protect your Personal Data by:

  • Not collecting or retaining excessive amounts of data;
  • Protecting Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access and disclosure. Any employees, agents, contractors or third parties who are so authorised act on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality;
  • Keeping Personal Data up to date;
  • Storing and destroying it securely;
  • Ensuring that appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards are in place to protect Personal Data; and
  • Regularly reviewing our information collection, storage and Processing practices, including physical security measures.
  • While AA&C has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures, there may be instances where a suspected or actual data breach still occurs. AA&C has robust policies and procedures to identify such instances and where applicable under Data Protection Legislation, it also notifies Data Subjects as well as regulators and other authorities.

Please also note that while we operate to the highest standards, we are also aware that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website and any transmission is at your own risk.

Data Retention

Where we collect your Personal Data, the length of time for which we retain it depends on the type of data, the purpose for which we use that data and our accounting, regulatory and legal data retention obligations. We do not retain Personal Data in an identifiable format for longer than:

  • The period necessary for the relevant activity or services;
  • Any retention period that is required by law or contract; or
  • The period in which litigation or investigations might arise in respect of the relevant activity or services

after which, it is likely your Personal Data will no longer be relevant for the purposes for which it was collected, and we will delete or destroy it.

In some circumstances we may anonymize your Personal Data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


Your Legal Rights

Under certain circumstances, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “subject access request” or “SAR”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully Processing it;
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to Process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to Processing. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;
  • Object to Processing of your personal information where we are relying on a Legitimate Interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to Processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are Processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes;
  • Request the restriction of Processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the Processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for Processing it; and/or
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the Processing of your Personal Data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us by email at


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.


We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.


In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your Consent to the collection, Processing, and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your Consent for that specific Processing at any time. To withdraw your Consent, please send us email at Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your Consent, we will no longer Process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate legal basis for doing so.


We respond to all legitimate requests within the required legal timeframe. 

Please note that occasionally it may take us longer if your request is incomplete and we need to write to you for more information or is particularly complex or you have made several requests. In these cases, we will notify you and keep you updated.
