What we do
It probably comes as no surprise to you that as a Softcat employee or contractor we hold quite a bit of your personal data. In regulatory speak this makes Softcat a Data Controller of your information which simply means we decide on how and when to use your data.
We take privacy very seriously and so should you. This page aims to help you understand what data we hold, what it’s used for and your rights. Hopefully you’ll be comfortable with this but if you have any questions please reach out to HR or [email protected]
We are using your personal information to manage your employment and also to make Softcat better for you and for everyone. To help you understand this we’ve set out the typical examples below.
Yes, quite a few. When we share your information we will make sure it’s shared in a secure way and not allow other companies to abuse the information we trust them with.
Any time data is shared with another organisation its use should always be consistent with this privacy notice.
On rare occasion it’s possible we may also have to share you information as required by law or when we need to protect you or other people from harm.
We will hold this information for as long as you are employed by us. Following this we will only retain the information necessary. When we retain information we will always consider the points below.
Where it is necessary to transfer data outside the EU we will ensure an adequate level of protection is in place and not allow other companies to abuse the information we trust them with.
