  1. What Does This Notice Cover?

This Privacy Notice applies only to your use of Our Site. Our Site may contain links to other websites. Please note that we have no control over how your data is collected, stored, or used by other websites and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.

  1. What is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
The personal data that we use is set out in Part 5, below.

  1. What Are My Rights?

Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a)  The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in part 14.

b)  The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 11 will tell you how to do this.

c)  The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. To contact us, please use the methods provided in part 14.

d)  The right to be forgotten, (i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold). Please use the methods provided in part 14.

e)  The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.

f)  The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

g)  The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.

h)  The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service of business in many cases.

i)  Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. Part 6 explains more about how we use your personal data, including automated decision-making.

For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 14.

It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-data. If any of the personal data we hold about changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.

Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

If you have any cause for complain about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first, using the details in Part 14.

Links to third-party sites are provided solely for your convenience, and any use or submission of data to such sites shall be at your sole risk.

  1. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

OLG limits the use of Personal Data to ways that are compatible and relevant to the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or subsequently authorised for which a specific legal basis was used such as legitimate interests, consent, performance of contract, compliance with legal obligation or otherwise. Jacobs will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is reliable for its intended use and that the information is accurate, complete, and current.

Personal Data is retained as needed to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. In addition, Personal Data is also retained in accordance with legal, regulatory, and contractual requirements and in accordance with OLG Data Retention Policy. In particular, without prejudice to your rights explained in the following section, we will keep your Personal Data, as follows:

  • Information about your visits to and use of this website shall be kept only for as long as your use of this website.
  • Information from your subscription to our website and newsletter lists shall be kept until you retract the consent you provide to send these to you, under Newsletters above. We may contact you on a regular basis to seek for renewal of your approval of us keeping such information.
  • Where relevant, information pertinent to transactions between you and us shall be stored throughout the lifecycle of the transactions concerned and for as long as necessary for the pursuit of legal claims or required by local law, including amongst others tax legislation.


  1. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

Data is stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in the Company’s candidate management system and in other IT systems (including the Company’s email system).

We will only store or transfer personal data in or to countries that are deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data. For further information about adequacy decisions and adequacy regulations, please refer to the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Please contact us using the details below in Part 14 for further information about the particular data protection safeguards used by us when transferring your personal data to a third country.

The security of your personal data is essential to us, and to protect your data, we take a number of important measures, including the following:

  • Limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they are subject to duties of confidentiality;
  • Procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s Office where we are legally required to do so.
  1. Sharing your Personal Data

Without prejudice to any disclosure of information made compulsory by competent authorities and only to the extent such disclosure is required by law, Personal Data you provide to OLG may be shared, consistent with applicable law and in accordance with the purposes each time served, as follows:

  • With OLG departments, including representatives and employees as necessary. For instance, Personal Data of news subscribers shall be shared with OLG teams that are responsible for marketing. Usage Data shall be processed by the OLG department that is responsible for our IT functions.
  • With affiliates and subsidiaries of OLG. Please note that OLG has a legitimate interest in transmitting your Personal Data within the Group of affiliated companies for internal administrative purposes and to better serve the rest of the purposes stipulated in this Privacy Policy.
  • With third parties and third-party business providers that provide services to OLG, such as companies that provide services for employee recruitment, IT-related services, or marketing-related services.
  • With a third party in the event of a sale, merger, reorganisation, or other transaction involving part or all of OLG.
  • With law enforcement agencies if required by law and under the relevant safeguards for the protection of your fundamental rights, in particular where OLG reasonably believes unlawful activities, fraud, or bodily injury or death have occurred, or the Personal Data may aid an ongoing investigation.

All service providers to OLG will use Personal Data only for the purposes identified in this notice and will provide services under a contract which restricts use of information to that which is necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.

  1. Can I Withhold Information?

You may access certain areas of Our Site without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on the OLG Recruitment site you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.

  1. How Can I Access My Personal Data?

If you want to know what personal data we hold about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it. This is known as a “subject access request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 14. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.

There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

We will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the data we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
