We seek to ensure that our information collection and processing are always proportionate. We will notify you of any changes to the information we collect or the purposes for which we collect and process it.

How we may share the information

We may also need to share some of the above categories of personal information with other parties, such as HR consultants and professional advisers. Usually, information will be anonymised, but this may not always be possible. Confidentiality obligations will bind the recipient of the data. We may also be required to share some personal information with our regulators or, as necessary, to comply with the law.

To whom we may share the information

The collected data may be communicated to our clients or to our suppliers who provide services (for example, partner companies that organize training courses), with an invitation to treat them in full compliance with the applicable provisions in this area. Our internal staff will also process your data as an authorised process for the aforementioned purposes. In any case, we will not disseminate them.

  • to Lavoropiù UK Limited staff as persons authorized for processing;

Further details on how we handle sensitive personal information and information relating to criminal convictions and offences are set out in our [set out details of the policy on processing special categories of data, and, where relevant policy on criminal records information, as required under Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018)], available.

Where information may be held

As described above, we may hold information at our offices and those of our group companies, third-party agencies, service providers, representatives, and agents.

How long we keep your information

We keep the personal information that we obtain about you during the recruitment process for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. How long we keep your information will depend on whether your application is successful and you become employed by us, the nature of the data concerned, and the purposes for which it is processed.
We will keep recruitment information (including interview notes) for no longer than is reasonable, considering the limitation periods for potential claims such as race or sex discrimination (as extended to take account of early conciliation), after which we will destroy them. Suppose there is an apparent business reason for keeping recruitment records longer than the recruitment period. In that case, we may do so but will first consider whether the documents can be pseudonymised and the more extended period for which they will be kept. If your application is successful, we will keep only the necessary recruitment information for your employment.

In any case, we will store your data for no more than 48 (forty-eight) months since the last interaction between the Data Controller and the data subject, confirming the consent already given (by way of example and not exhaustively: updating the data on the profile available in the database; participation by the data subject in a selection regarding the services provided by Lavoropiù UK Limited).

Your right to object to us processing your information

Our processing of your information is based solely on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party). You have the right to object to that processing if you give us specific reasons you object based on your situation. If you object, we can no longer process your information unless we can demonstrate legitimate grounds for the processing, which override your interests, rights, and freedoms. The processing is for establishing, exercising, or defending legal claims. Please contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) if you wish to object in this way.

Your rights to correct and access your information and to ask for it to be erased

Please contact us at if (per the applicable law) you would like to correct or request access to information that we hold relating to you or if you have any questions about this notice. In certain circumstances, you also have the right to ask for some but not all of the information we hold and process to be erased (the ‘right to be forgotten’).

You can also contact our Data Protection Officer at to have more information about the right to be forgotten or your other rights as a data subject.

Keeping your personal information secure

We have appropriate security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed unauthorised. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

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