PRIVACY NOTICE / LEGITIMATE INTERESTS ASSESSMENT
We process data freely given to us by individuals and their representatives in order to attempt to obtain temporary UK work permission for them. This is demonstrably necessary and in the best interests of those whose data is being processed.
We do not harvest, sell or use data inappropriately; it is purely shared with the UK government who need it in order to grant work permission (Tier 5 temporary work CoS).
Every job we take on would first be balanced against the needs of the data subjects. We understand our duty to protect the individual’s interests, and we will act accordingly, with their interests to the fore.
There is no less intrusive way to obtain a UK work permission than to provide passport information, home address, work details, experience, pay details and so on. This is all required by the UKVI in order to issue the CoS correctly. As sponsor we are obliged to see and retain the main biographic information page from the subject’s passport, plus the page where the UK permission is noted (after their entry, or after a visa is issued). Where a client is sponsor they are required to keep these documents. These are all legal requirements and the work permission cannot be obtained without this data. Obtaining the work permission is clearly in the holder’s interest, as without it they could be refused entry to the UK and denied rights to return.
If we process children’s data it is because that child is a young performer seeking to perform here. They will contact us via child’s manager, guardian or representative (such as record label or agent) and our involvement is in the interest of them being able to legally perform here. This is demonstrably in their legitimate interests (not doing so would mean they lack a vital document to be allowed entry to the UK).
In the balance of interests it is clear that each person providing their data to us with regard to a UK work permission is doing so in the hope of securing that permission with our help. Therefore, processing their information is clearly in their interest. This meets our lawful basis for processing individuals’ and groups’ data, as set out by the EU directive on GDPR.
