4.          Why We Need Your Personal Data

We need to process your personal data for a number of different reasons and these are our legal bases for processing. We also need to keep your personal data for as long as is necessary for us to operate our business and to comply with legal and regulatory obligations.


We rely on one or more of the following legal bases for processing personal data:

  • To perform our contract with you or to enter into a contract with you



We need to process your personal data to fulfil our contract with you or to assess whether to enter into a contract with you, whether this is in determining your suitability for a role, employment or during the course of selection/interview/offer for a position within Damac Group Limited.

  • To fulfil our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party


When we process personal data to fulfil our legitimate interests we will use it in a way in which you would reasonably expect and which will have a minimal privacy impact. When we or third parties are relying on legitimate interests we will balance our interests against your interests and the privacy impact of the processing on you and we will process your personal data responsibly.

Examples of our legitimate interests are: providing our service, preventing and investigating crime and indicating possible criminal acts as well as ensuring our IT security.

  • To comply with legal obligations to which our business is subject


    • We have to comply with relevant law and regulation in order to provide our recruitment services and we will need to process your personal data in order to comply with these legal obligations.
  • Consent


  • If we are relying on consent as our legal basis to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time. Our consent for our recruitment process is twofold:
  • Consent for your data to be utilised for a specific role application.
  • Consent for your data to be stored in a candidate pool so that we may be able to request you apply for future roles that become available.

We will keep your personal data for the purposes set out in this privacy notice and only for as long as any legal basis continues to apply. Below is a non-exhaustive list of some of the reasons we need to retain your personal data:

  • Compliance with the requirements of Government Departments investigating crime, right to work or fraud.
  • Ensuring we have relevant information in the event of any queries or complaints.
  • Being able to identify if you have purchased a product which is subject to a product recall.
  • To assist with the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


The length of time we need to keep the personal data will vary depending on the nature of the personal data and the reason we are obliged to hold it. We will apply appropriate risk based measures to protect your personal data which may include pseudonymising or anonymising the personal data. If personal data is pseudonymised, this means it is de-identified so you are no longer identifiable, but we can re-identify you if we have a requirement to do so. If personal data is anonymised, it is de-identified, but can never be re-identified in the future.


5.   Who We Transfer Data To

Transferring personal data to other organisations needs to take place with appropriate safeguards and you can be assured that we will only share the personal data that is needed for these organisations to be able to provide the right service to our Clients, you or to support us in doing so.

We may transfer your personal data to the following third parties:

  • Our chosen Third Party background and criminal check (DBS) partner to ensure we employ on those who we’re legally able to.
  • Technology service providers – our partners who provide IT and website services.
  • Telephony providers – our partners who provide telephone services and functionality.
  • Regulators and other governmental agencies or law enforcement agencies.
  • Organisations who may be interested in purchasing our business or organisations who we may be interested in purchasing – we may sell parts of our business or acquire other businesses and your personal data may be shared with such third parties as part of this process.

We will only transfer your personal data to third parties who adhere to appropriate data security standards and controls. From time to time we may need to transfer your personal data to other countries. Where this is the case, we will ensure that the transfer is subject to appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data and complies with applicable law which may include having standard contractual clauses in place with the third party. For further information on how data can be transferred to other countries, please find enclosed a link to the European Commission website: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en

6.   Your Rights

Right of Access

This is known as a Subject Access Request. If you want to know if we are processing personal data relating to you and to have access to any such personal data, you can email our Data Protection Team on gdpr@damac.co.uk


Right to Rectification

If you believe that we hold inaccurate personal data about you, you can email our Data Protection Team on gdpr@damac.co.uk

Depending on the type of personal data you believe is inaccurate, we may ask you for further proof to ensure that the personal data is being corrected properly. If we are satisfied that the personal data is inaccurate we will make the necessary changes. Please understand that records of applications may not be able to be altered given our mandate to comply with regulatory and law requirements and to ensure an accurate record of that particular application.

Right to Erasure

You have a right to ask for your personal data to be erased in certain circumstances. However, this right does not apply where we have to comply with a legal obligation or where we need personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Therefore we cannot comply with an erasure request where you have been provided services for which we must keep records.

Right to Restriction

You have a right to request that processing of personal data is restricted in certain circumstances. However, we shall still continue to process the personal data for storage purposes and for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to Object

Where we are relying on legitimate interests as a legal basis to process your data, you have a right to object to such processing on grounds relating to your particular situation.

You may also object to other processing when we rely on our legitimate interests as the basis for processing, but we do not have to stop the processing if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing (taking into account our processing activities, the nature of our business and our legitimate interests) and that these grounds override your interests, rights and freedoms or in the event that we need the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. To enable us to consider any objection we will need to know what specific interests, rights or freedoms relating to your particular situation you believe will potentially be put at risk by our processing. If we do stop processing your personal data, this may affect our ability to deliver our service to our Clients and you.

Right to Portability

In certain circumstances, you can request that we provide to you your personal data in a commonly used format. If you wish to make such a request you can email our Data Protection Team on gdpr@damac.co.uk

Right to Complain to the Information Commissioner

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner and more details can be found on their website www.ico.org.uk.
