As part of any recruitment process, Kispe Ltd, Kispe Space Systems Ltd and Applied Space Solutions Ltd ("the Company") collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use that data and to meeting our data protection obligations.

The kind of information we collect about you
The Company collects a range of information about you including:

  • Personal contact details such as name, title, addresses, contact details (including email address and telephone number(s))
  • Details of your qualifications, skills, experience and employment history
  • Information about your current level of remuneration, including any benefits entitlements
  • Whether or not you have a disability for which the Company needs to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process
  • Information about your entitlement to work in the UK
  • Where applicable, equal opportunities monitoring information, including information about your ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health, religion or belief

The way we collect your personal information
Your information is collected in different ways, for example, data might be contained in application forms, CVs, passport or other identity documents or collected through interviews which are held and any other forms of assessment.
The Company will also collect personal data about you from third parties such as references supplied by former employers. The Company will seek information from third parties only once a job offer has been made to you and we will confirm that we are taking up references.

Where we will keep your personal information
The data we collect will be stored in a range of different places, including on your application record, in HR files and systems and on other IT systems (including email).

Why we process your personal information
The Company needs to process data to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you and again if we do enter into a contract with you.
Sometimes we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with legal obligations, for example, we are required to check an applicant's eligibility to work in the UK prior to any employment starting.
We have a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and keeping records of that process. By processing data from job applicants, we can manage recruitment processes, assess and confirm your suitability for employment and make decisions on job offers. There are times when we may need to process data from job applicants in the response to and defence of any legal claims which may be brought.
Where necessary, we also process health information if we need to make reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process in relation to any type of ill health or disability which an applicant may have. This allows us to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
For some roles, our Company is obliged to seek information about criminal convictions and offences. Where we do this, it is because it is necessary for us to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
We have assessed and believe that in addition to our interests, it is in your interests for us to retain your personal information in relation to any suitable future employment opportunities which you may be interested in. If you object to us retaining your information you can object by writing to [email protected]

Who has access to your data?
Your information will be shared for the purpose of the recruitment exercise which includes sharing with members of the HR/Recruitment team (including the recruitment team of any third-party Company who has the vacancy), interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with the vacancy and IT staff where appropriate if any of the data is necessary for the performance of their roles).
We will not share your data with third parties until your application for employment is successful and you receive an offer of employment. We will then share your data with former employers to obtain references for you and where appropriate, the DBS to obtain criminal record checks where necessary for the role (however you will be informed of this prior to the checks being carried out).

Data Security
The Company takes the security of your data very seriously and has internal policies and controls in place to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed and is not accessed by anyone except by its employees and third party providers in the legitimate performance of their duties in relation to the recruitment process.
If you are unsuccessful in a specific recruitment process and provide consent for us to retain your data for a further period in order to be considered for future employment opportunities, we will delete and destroy your data at the end of that period if we have not obtained further consent from you for a further period of retention. Your data will be deleted and destroyed at any time where consent is required and you exercise your right to withdraw your consent to us retaining your data.
If you are successful in your application for employment, personal data gathered during the recruitment process will be transferred to your personal file and retained in accordance with Company policies. You will be provided with a new Employee Privacy Notice at that time.

Your Rights

  • As a data subject, you have several rights. You can:
  • Access and obtain a copy of your data on request;
  • Require the organisation to change incorrect or incomplete data;
  • Require the organisation to delete or stop processing your data where the data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing;
  • Object to the processing of your data where we are relying on our legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing; and
  • Ask us to stop processing data for a period if the data is inaccurate or if there is a dispute concerning whether or not your interests override the Company's legitimate grounds for processing the data.

If you would like to exercise any of the above rights please contact Emma Sawers on email at [email protected].
You can also contact Emma to request a Subject Access Request Form if you wish.
If you believe that the organisation has not complied with your data protection rights you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
