This may include obtaining references from third parties, conducting CRB checks and carrying out credit reference checks using a credit reference agency, but we will notify you when we intend to do this, and who we intend to contact.

You may be required to provide Future with sensitive personal data, e.g., information such as criminal convictions, where this is justified by the position being applied for, or information regarding disability or ethnic origin (for example, to ensure workers’ health and safety or to prevent discrimination in the workplace). Future is committed to protecting the privacy of sensitive data and will only use sensitive data in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Unless you specifically request that we do not store your personal data regarding your application, we will retain the data for a period of 24 months from your application. This is so that we may match your details to any future suitable vacancies that may arise. After this 24 month period your data will be removed or destroyed. You may request the removal of the data at any time earlier than this by notifying us in writing. We may also contact you by e-mail, unless you tell us not to.

In the event that you are successful in your application, we will store your personal data regarding your application throughout your period of employment within the Future Group.
