Who are we?
We’re Edinburgh College, and we’re responsible for looking after the information you’re giving us on this form (we’re the Data Controller).
Why do we need the information we’re asking for?
We’re asking for this information in order to contact you in connection with your Jobzone query, for example, to help us to advertise your recruitment event, to advertise your job(s), or to facilitate your coming into college to discuss the opportunity to promote your vacancies to students.
We cannot do this without your contact details (email address).
What will we do with your information?
Once you have given us the information on this form we will keep it safely in the college’s Jobzone inbox. We will not share this information outside the college, and it will be passed to key staff to help in the advertisement of your job role or event (including learning development tutors and academic staff).
Why are we allowed to collect your personal information?
We require this information in order to perform our public task (improving the economic and social wellbeing of the locality of Edinburgh College) – we cannot advertise your job event or opportunities without this information.
How long do we keep your information?
We will delete your personal information a maximum of six months after we have posted your vacancy or event on our Jobzone website.
What are my rights?
Because this is your personal information, you have rights under data protection law. You have the right to:
- Be told what personal information Edinburgh College is keeping about you.
- Make Edinburgh College change any personal information that’s wrong, or out of date.
- If it’s wrong or out of date, to stop us using your personal information until we’ve put it right.
If you want to know more about your rights, or if you want to contact Edinburgh College to make use one or more of your rights, please email DP@Edinburghcollege.ac.uk or phone 0131 297 8663.
What do I do if I’m unhappy with the way my information is being used by Edinburgh College?
You can contact Edinburgh College’s Information Management team by emailing DP@Edinburghcollege.ac.uk or you can speak to the team on 0131 297 8663. The team will be happy to help; but we also have an independent Data Protection Officer (DPO) you can speak to if you’d prefer – they can be contacted using the email address and telephone number above.
Or, you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) by calling their helpline on 0303 123 1113. (The Information Commissioner’s Office make sure organisations across the UK treat your personal information properly).
