If you decide not to join, we’ll delete your data within seven months. Our lawful basis for this retention policy is legitimate interests, because in our experience this allows enough time for someone to reach a final decision about joining. It also gives us time to monitor how many enquirers don’t join and to look for patterns and insights in the data we hold about them, which helps us grow our business.
You have the right to object to any processing that is based on legitimate interests. To let us know that you object, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you interact with us, some additional data processing will take place and different retention periods may apply. For example, this happens when we speak on the phone or you contact us on social media – the type of processing depends on the type of contact we have with you. You can learn all about this in the next section of our policy.
