We can ask you for supplementary permission if we wish to store your personal data beyond the duration of the job application process. You are not required to give this permission.

Protecting your personal data

Access to your personal data is limited to prevent unauthorized access, change, or misuse. Access is only permitted for our colleagues, and third parties on a need-to-know basis.
