Personal data collected by CRC

The type of personal data (e.g., name, contact details, address etc.) that we may collect will depend upon the relationship between CRC and you. The data so collected may be provided directly by you or, where appropriate, provided by third parties e.g., references, credit checks, etc.

As a client, a contact, a service provider or employee (or prospective employee) of CRC we will require some personal information to verify your identity and have the applicable relationship with you. Some of this information may be required to satisfy legal obligations (e.g., HMRC) whereas other information may be required in connection with the provision of services to you. The information collected will vary depending on the service CRC provides to you or you provide to CRC, but typically includes:

  • Personal information: Such as your name, date of birth, passport number or national insurance number;
  • Contact information: Including your address, telephone number and email address.

Firm storage of personal data

CRC has comprehensive policies and procedures in place to ensure your personal data is kept safe and secure, with these including:

  • Data encryption;
  • Firewalls;
  • Intrusion detection;
  • 24/7 physical protection of the facilities where your data is stored;
  • Background checks for personnel that access physical facilities; and
  • Security procedures across all service operations.

Retention time for personal data

CRC will retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected (or longer period if so required by law or legitimate interests) which will be at least for the period in which CRC has a business interest with you.
Any information that is outside the scope of this requirement will be retained whilst relevant and useful, and destroyed where this ceases to be the case or where the data subject specifically requests this.

GDPR requires CRC to inform you of the legal basis on which we maintain your personal data. As a general rule the following is applicable:

  • Clients – Information is maintained on the basis of contractual obligation and/or legitimate interests (where relevant);
  • Service providers – Information is maintained on the basis of contractual obligation;
  • Database/marketing contacts – Information is maintained on the basis of legitimate interest; and

CRC will provide this information to you within one month (with the ability to extend this by an additional two months where necessary), free of charge.
  • Request that the information CRC holds about you is erased under certain circumstances including where there is no additional legal and/or regulatory requirement for CRC to retain this information.
  • Request that any personal data you have provided to CRC be transmitted to another controller in a commonly used and machine-readable format, otherwise known as ‘data portability’.
