Please refer to our Applicants privacy notices provided during our recruitment process, which explain what information we collect from you when you apply for a job with us and how we process that information.

Change of purpose

McBride will only use your personal information for the purposes for which McBride collect it, unless McBride reasonably considers that it needs to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If McBride needs to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Disclosure of your information

The McBride website may, from time to time, contain links to and from other websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share information about you. McBride does not control those third-party websites and is not responsible for their privacy notices / policies. When you leave the McBride website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit before you provide them with personal information.

We may disclose your personal information to any member of our Group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the Companies Act 2006.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

Storage of your personal data

McBride will only keep your personal information for as long as is necessary to fulfil the relevant purpose(s) collected for, as set out above in this notice, and for as long as we are required to keep it for legal purposes.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, McBride considers the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances:

McBride has put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

In addition, McBride limits access to your personal information to those employees, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator where we are legally required to do so. Your rights

Data protection laws provide you with the following rights, to:

You also have the right to object to the 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.

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

McBride 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.

You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. The ICO can be contacted by telephone on 0303 123 1113 or by post as follows: Information Commissioners Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF or via email at casework@ico.org.uk.

McBride would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact us in the first instance using any of the details set out below in the “Contacting Us” section.
