Lindab Limited has taken the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data from loss, abuse and unauthorised access.

The number of employees at Lindab Limited that have access to the personal data is limited. Access to the personal data has only been granted the individuals at Lindab Limited that need to process the personal data in accordance with the purposes that have been stated above. If necessary, Lindab Limited may transfer data to other companies within Lindab Group if necessary as part of the recruitment process and/or to make decisions in connection with that, or otherwise for reporting purposes.

Lindab Limited applies different retention periods for different categories of your personal data. Details of retention periods for different personal data are available in our Guideline on retention of personal data which is available from the HR Department.

Personal data concerning job applicants will be retained in accordance with our Guideline on retention of personal data referenced in section 7.1 above. When processing of your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected Lindab Limited will erase that personal data.

To determine the retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

If we wish to retain your personal information on file, on the basis that a further opportunity may arise in future and we may wish to consider you for that, we will write to you separately, seeking your consent to retain your personal information for a fixed period on that basis.

For example, you may request a restriction of processing if you consider the processed personal data to be incorrect or if you consider that the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes of processing. Please note that a restriction or erasure of your personal data may infer that Lindab Limited does not have the possibility to fulfil its commitments.
