Depending on whether you apply for a job with Reynolds or not, or if you become a customer, contractor or supplier or not, The Company may collect a range of information about you which will be justified under our fulfilment of contract with you, or with your express, specific and informed consent (which you may retract at any time if so).

Why does Reynolds process personal data?

Reynolds needs to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. It may also need to process your data to enter into a contract with you.

In some cases, the Company needs to process data to ensure that it is complying with its legal obligations (for example, it is required to check a successful applicant’s eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts) or within its legitimate interest (e.g. to avoid being defrauded).

Special categories of data

Reynolds may process special categories of data where we have a clear legal basis to do so, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation or religion or belief, to monitor recruitment statistics. We may also collect information about whether or not applicants are disabled to make reasonable adjustments for candidates who have a disability. We process such information to carry out its obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.

How long does Reynolds keep data?

We will retain your data for the time period specified by law. If there is no legally required time frame for retaining your data the company will delete information as appropriate, in accordance with your rights and freedoms and those of The Company.

Who has access to data?

Your information may be shared internally for appropriate business purposes only or we will look to obtain your specific consent if are seeking to use your data for any other purpose.

Reynolds will not transfer your data outside the European Economic Area unless prior notification is provided.  Where we do share your data with third parties, we provide written instructions to them to ensure that your data is held securely and in line with GDPR requirements. Third parties must implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your data.

How does Reynolds protect data?

We take the security of your data seriously. We have internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed except by our employees in the proper performance of their duties.

Your rights

As a data subject, you have a number of rights. You can:

  • Access and obtain a copy of your data on request
  • Require Reynolds to change incorrect or incomplete data
  • Require Reynolds to delete or stop processing your data, for example where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing
  • Object to the processing of your data where Reynolds is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact the HR department at hrstaffs@reynolds-cs.com

If you believe that Reynolds has not complied with your data protection rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner.

Automated decision-making

None of our data processing activities rely on automated decision making.

What Information do we collect and what do we use it for?

If you decide to apply for a position via the site we will need:

You can have a look through our recruitment section without giving us any personal information about yourself.

  • Name, address and postcode – without this we would not know where to send recruitment information.
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone numbers for day and evening – if there are any problems with your application or we need to clarify anything with you, we need to be able to contact you quickly.
  • Your CV or application – this is required so that we may assess your skills and employment history.
  • Criminal Records Checks/Credit history checks – Some roles may require us to enquire about previous criminal convictions or to carry out credit history checks. If this is necessary we will make you aware of this as early in the recruitment process as possible.
  • Other information specified during the online application process that is relevant to recruitment.

This information will be used to:

  • Process your application.
  • Consider you for the position for which you have applied.
  • Fulfil any legal obligations to which Reynolds Catering Supplies Limited must abide.
  • Provide general aggregate information (which does not identify individuals) and statistics to help Reynolds Catering Supplies Limited develop its website and services.
  • Make up part of your personnel records if your application is successful, but only to the extent that such information is relevant to your on-going employment.
  • Approach your nominated referees for the purposes of obtaining references. We will only contact referees with your prior knowledge.

Please note that we may from time to time use service providers to process your information on our behalf but only for the purposes outlined above.

It is your responsibility to ensure that all of the information you provide is true and is not misleading, deceptive or inaccurate in any way. If you believe any of the information Reynolds Catering Supplies Limited holds about you is incorrect, please contact us on recruitment@reynolds-cs.com and we will happily amend this for you.

Where you provide information about somebody else, for example, your referees, you should ensure that they have given their consent.

Equal Opportunities

Our full Equal Opportunities policy can be viewed at the foot of the application form. As part of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 we are required to make basic documentation checks on every candidate. Please note that you will be asked to provide documentation of your eligibility to work in the UK if you are invited to attend the next stage of the recruitment process with us.

Other information, for example, relating to your sex, ethnic origin and culture is requested for the purpose of monitoring the effectiveness of our Equal Opportunities policy. This information is requested purely for monitoring purposes.

Your rights and removal of your Information

If at any time after the submission of your application you become unavailable to work, or if you simply change your mind, please e-mail us on recruitment@reynolds-cs.com and we will withdraw your application. In addition, if you have partially completed an application, but it is not submitted within a reasonable period, it may cease to be stored.
