  • Processing is necessary to fulfil our legal obligations under employment, social security and social protection law.
  • Processing is necessary to fulfil a contract.
  • Processing is necessary for the Mint House's legitimate interests unless these are over-ridden by the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject.

5. Sharing your personal data
Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential. We will only share your data with third parties outside the Mint House with your consent or when necessary to comply with safeguarding obligations.

6. How long do we keep your personal data?

  • (Where applicable) request that the data controller provide the data subject with his/her personal data and where possible transmits that data directly to another data controller, (known as the right to data portability).
  • Request a restriction is placed on further processing where there is a dispute in relation to the accuracy or processing of your personal data.
  • Object to the processing of personal data (where processing is based on this being in the Mint House's legitimate interests).
  • Lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office.

8. Further processing
If we wish to use your personal data for a new purpose, not covered by this Data Protection Notice, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use before we start the processing, setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever necessary, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
