Why we hold your personal data

Lawful basis for processing personal data

The lawful basis for processing the personal data of employees is to fulfil an employment contract with an individual.

Within Rose Gas Ltd, personal data, including sensitive personal data, may be shared between certain members of staff who legitimately need the information to carry out their normal duties to support your time with us. We endeavour to ensure that sensitive personal data is only shared with colleagues with your explicit consent. However, circumstances may arise where this data is shared with colleagues without gaining your consent. This will only occur if it is necessary to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another person; or for certain other reasons where it is not possible or appropriate to gain your consent such as disclosures to the police for prevention or detection of crime, or to meet statutory obligations relating to equality monitoring.

Otherwise, Rose Gas Ltd does not share data with any third party, except when required by law.

How long is data kept

We will keep your personal data only as long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which it was collected. We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you are no longer an employee, worker, contractor or candidate of the company or an individual working at a clients or potential client of ours, we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
