Paper copies are scanned and shredded using a cross cut shredding machine.

Data Protection and Information Security
Aspire Locums processes personal data in relation to its own staff, work-seeking individuals, and client contacts. It is vitally important that we use this information in accordance to the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation.

  • Staff Administration
  • Advertising, marketing and public relations
  • Financial Accounts and Records
  • Administration and processing of work-seekers personal data for the purposes of work-finding services
  • Counter Fraud and Security Management Services
  • Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs

The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) requires Aspire Locums as data controller to process data in accordance with the principles of the new General Data Protection Regulation. These require that data shall be: -

  • Fairly and lawfully processed
  • Processed for limited purposes
  • Adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • Accurate
  • Not kept longer than necessary
  • Processed in accordance with the data subjects rights
  • Kept securely
  • Not transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area without adequate protection.

Personal data means data, which relates to a living individual who can be identified from the data or from the data together with other information, which is in the possession of, or is likely to come into possession of Aspire Locums.

Processing means obtaining, recording or holding the data or carrying out any operation or set of operations on the data. It includes organising, adapting and amending the data, retrieval, consultation and use of the data, disclosing and erasure or destruction of the data. It is difficult to envisage any activity involving data, which does not amount to processing. It applies to any processing that is carried out on computer including any type of computer however described, main frame, desktop, laptop, palm top etc.

Data should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it is accurate, relevant and up to date and those people listed in the appendix shall be responsible for doing this.

Data may only be processed with the consent of the person whose data is held. Therefore if they have not consented to their personal details being passed to a third party this may constitute a breach of the General Data Protection Regulation. By instructing Aspire Locums to look for work and providing us with personal data contained in a CV work-seekers will be giving their consent to processing their details for work-finding purposes. If you intend to use their data for any other purpose you must obtain their specific consent.

However caution should be exercised before forwarding personal details of any of the individuals on which data is held to any third party such as past, current or prospective employers; suppliers; customers and clients; persons making an enquiry or complaint and any other third party.

Data in respect of the following is “sensitive personal data” and any information held on any of these matters MUST not be passed on to any third party without the express written consent of the individual:

  • Any offence committed or alleged to be committed by them
  • Proceedings in relation to any offence and any sentence passed
  • Physical or mental health or condition
  • Racial or ethnic origins
  • Sexual life
  • Political opinions
  • Religious beliefs or beliefs of a similar nature
  • Whether someone is a member of a trade union

From a security point of view, the Data Processors are permitted to add or amend data from the database and only the Data Controller is permitted to supress\delete data from the database. However all Data Processors are responsible for notifying the Data Controller where information is known to be inaccurate or out of date. In addition all Employees should ensure that adequate security measures are in place. For example:

  • Computer screens should not be left open by individuals who have access to personal data
  • Passwords should not be disclosed
  • Email should be used with care
  • Personnel files and other personal data should be stored in a place in which any unauthorised attempts to access them will be noticed. They should not be removed from their usual place of storage without good reason.
  • Personnel files should always be locked away when not in use and when in use should not be left unattended
  • Any breaches of security should be treated as a disciplinary issue.
  • Care should be taken when sending personal data in internal or external mail
  • Destroying or disposing of personal data counts as processing. Therefore care should be taken in the disposal of any personal data to ensure that it is appropriate. For example, it would have been more appropriate to shred sensitive data than merely to dispose of it in the dustbin.

It should be remembered that the incorrect processing of personal data e.g. sending an individual’s details to the wrong person; allowing unauthorised persons access to personal data; or sending information out for purposes for which the individual did not give their consent, may give rise to a breach of contract and/or negligence leading to a claim against Aspire Locums for damages from an employee, work-seeker or client contact. A failure to observe the contents of this policy will be treated as a disciplinary offence.

Data subjects, i.e. those on whom personal data is held, are entitled to obtain access to their data on request. All requests to access data by data subjects i.e. staff, members, customers or clients, suppliers, students etc. should be referred to the Data Controller whose details are also listed on the appendix to this policy.

Any requests for access to a reference given by a third party must be referred to Data Controller and should be treated with caution even if the reference was given in relation to the individual making the request. This is because the person writing the reference also has a right to have their personal details handled in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, and not disclosed without their consent. Therefore when taking up references an individual should always be asked to give their consent to the disclosure of the reference to a third party and/or the individual who is the subject of the reference if they make a subject access request. However if they do not consent then consideration should be given as to whether the details of the individual giving the reference can be deleted so that they cannot be identified from the content of the letter. If so the reference may be disclosed in an anonymised form.

Finally it should be remembered that all individuals have the following rights under the Human Rights Act 1998 and in dealing with personal data these should be respected at all times:

  • Right to respect for private and family life [Article 8]
  • Freedom of thought, conscience and religion [Article 9]
  • Freedom of expression [Article 10]
  • Freedom of assembly and association [Article 11]
  • Freedom from discrimination [Article 14]

Policy Changes
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices that will become effective upon posting. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice through the Service channels prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. The latest version of the Privacy Policy is listed at the bottom of each page within this document with a date stamp.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
Aspire Locums will take all reasonable steps to provide that any personal information it processes (including any processing through its agents) is limited by the purpose(s) for which such personal information has been collected.

Recourse, Enforcement and Liability
Aspire Locums will attempt to reasonably resolve any concerns related to the processing of personal information directly with any individual. If you have any unresolved dispute with us or in the event a resolution cannot be reached, individuals may engage with the Information Commissioners Office. Any questions or complaints concerning this Privacy Policy or the handling of your personal information, please contact (Aspire Locums Data Controller).
