In some cases, there are legal requirements to keep personal data for a minimum period, for example if it must be retained by court or tribunal order or where Idox is under a contractual obligation to retain it. If there is no such legal requirement, Idox will only keep the personal data for so long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or as expressly consented. If we no longer need your personal information, we will delete or de-identify it. Even if we delete your personal data, it may persist on backup or archival media for an additional period of time for legal, tax or regulatory reasons, or for legitimate and lawful business purposes.
If you apply for a job with us, and if your application is not successful in the first instance, we may retain your personal information for up to twelve months so that we can consider you for other positions that may become available. If you would prefer us not to retain your personal information for recruitment purposes, please email [email protected].
