We will collect personal information from you by telephone, in person, in writing and all forms of electronic mail.
How is your information used?
In relation to a job application and/or prospective or current employment with Tigers Security Services, we will use your personal information to help us compete your screening, which is a security industry requirement (BS: 7858) and is a condition of your employment with us, or indeed any security provider.

Who do you share my data with?
We’ll sometimes need to share information with third parties to perform services on our behalf or to provide services to you. For example, when you join Tigers Security Services we’ll need to complete a credit check and ask a recognised credit reference agency to help us and if applicable, checks with Data and Barring Service (DBS).
We may also share information with other organisations such as Sentinel or external training providers if you are required to hold rail related or client requested competences to enable you to carry out your work.
Our legal basis for processing personal information
Our legal basis for the processing of your personal information is our legitimate business interests, although we will also rely on contract, legal obligation and consent for specific uses of data.
We will rely on contract as a legal basis, if you are to be employed with us. In order to enter into a contract, we will need you to supply certain personal information as the contract will contain obligations on both your part and our part such as financial information to pay you.
We will rely on legal obligation if we are required to hold information on you to fulfil our legal obligations. There are some statutory and regulatory obligations which relate to businesses’ generally, for example complying with tax, bribery, fraud/crime prevention and cooperation with regulatory authorities such as HMRC.
Where you have entered into a contract with us and refuse to provide any information required by law such as information and documentation to establish your right to work and verification of identity, we reserve the right to end our business relationship with you.
You can withdraw your consent at any time.
We consider it to be reasonable to retain records for a period of seven years in order to comply with BS: 7858.
Please note, that in some cases we may continue to retain some information if we have an overriding business interest or legal obligation to do so.
Who has access to your information and where will it be held?
The information you supply may be disclosed to Tigers Security Services within our Human Resources Department and held in secure locations. Information will also be available to our Payroll Department in order to ensure that you are paid correctly and to our Operations Department in order to contact you and to supply you with your various duties, but only the minimum relevant information will be shared with these departments.

Notwithstanding the above, you should be careful when you reveal any confidential information to any third party.
How long will Tigers Security hold your information for?
We will not hold your information for any longer than is necessary.
