  1. THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:

  • “Identity Data” includes first name, last name, or similar identifier (only collected via Careers Page)
  • “Contact Data” includes email address and telephone numbers (only collected via Careers Page)
  • “Recruitment Process Information” includes notes taken for the duration of your recruitment process relating to a job application with GIG which, in the event of an unsuccessful job application, will enable us to consider you for future vacancies which may become available;

  • “Usage Data” includes information about how you use our Website

We also collect, use and share “Aggregated Data” such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

We do not collect any special categories of personal data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

 

IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you.

Facebook Conversion Tracking Pixel

We may from time to time use Facebook (Visitor Action Pixel). This tool allows user behaviour to be tracked on Facebook and through the collection of this data, we are able to generate reports and statistics. The data collected remains anonymous and we cannot see the personal data of any individual user. However this data is collected and processed by Facebook, which may link this information to your Facebook account. For more information click here.

Greenhouse Software Tracking

For the purposes of tracking where candidates applying for a job role on the Website are coming from, we may also use tracking links through which we will be able to understand from which third party site such candidate is referred to. Once again the data collected remains anonymous and we cannot see the personal data of any individual user.

CHANGE OF PURPOSE

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consentin the limited situations where this is required or permitted by law.

 

  1. DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table above.

Your personal data may be shared with third parties on a need to know basis. This may include:

  1. Software companies engaged by GIG from time to time to optimize and facilitate the recruiting process by supplying GIG with recruitment management software;
  2. Parent or subsidiary companies of GIG forming part of Gaming Innovation Group;
  3. Hiring managers involved with respect to a particular job role you have applied for;
  4. Individuals within the Human Resources Team at GIG as necessary;

Any potential acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any proposed merger, acquisition, sale of assets, or similar transaction in which information is required to be transferred to one or more third parties as part of such transaction.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

 

  1. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

We transfer your personal data to our service providers or partners outside the European Economic Area (EEA). We shall only transfer your personal data outside the EEA in the event that the respective countries to which such data is to be transferred provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information.

Determining whether an adequate level of protection of your personal data is provided is based on the existence of one of the following:

  1. The European Commission has determined that the respective third country, territory or a specified sector within that third country ensures an adequate level of protection for data transfers;
  2. The service provider or partner to whom your personal data is to be transferred provides appropriate safeguards and data subject rights and adequate legal remedies for data subjects are available. Appropriate safeguards can be provided in various ways including the use of standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission. For more information kindly click here.
  3. The service provider or partner to whom your personal data is to be transferred is subscribed to the U.S. Privacy Shield, which requires all such companies subscribed to it to provide adequate protection to personal data that is transferred between EU and US companies.

 

The software supplier used by GIG and which provides GIG with recruitment management software is based in the US and GIG has independently verified that such supplier is subscribed to and bound by the U.S. Privacy Shield. For more information on the U.S. Privacy Shield kindly click here.

 

  1. DATA SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

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

 

  1. DATA RETENTION

HOW LONG WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL DATA FOR?

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data (kindly refer to the table above) and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

We shall retain:

  1. Identity Data, Contact Data and Recruitment Process Information for a period of two (2) years;
  2. Usage Data and Technical Data for a period of two (2) years;

unless we are legally required to retain such data for a longer period of time under any applicable law, in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

We shall only retain Employment related Data for a maximum period of one (1) month from the date where we notify you of any decision of an unsuccessful application, unless you authorise us to retain such data for a longer period of time so that we may be able to consider you for any future vacancies which may arise at GIG, in which case we shall keep the data for a maximum period of two (2) years.

We shall retain Aggregated Data for an indefinite period of time as, although this stems from personal data, it does not identify you in any way and does not amount to personal data.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your Legal Rights below for further information.

In some circumstances, we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

 

  1. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please click on the links below to find out more about these rights:

  • Request access to your personal data.
  • Request correction of your personal data.
  • Request erasure of your personal data.
  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • Request transfer of your personal data.
  • Right to withdraw consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

 

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons where we need to abide by applicable laws or where otherwise there is a legitimate interest for us not to comply with such request. Otherwise you may ask use to delete all your personal data at any point in time, and at which point we will use our best endeavours to adhere to your request. Please  note that in the event that you wish for us to delete your data related to a job application, we will not be able to consider you for future job roles which may become available and which may fit your application unless you re-apply and submit the information again.

Object to processing of your personal data 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 as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, however, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

  • If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
  • Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
  • Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

 

NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

 

WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

 

TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
