Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as:
“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.
This privacy notice tells you how we, Metalock Group, will collect and use your personal data for sending you Newsletters, bulletins and other events relating to the Metalock Group of Companies, and sending business correspondence.
If you are applying for a job with us, then we will collect and use your personal information in connection with that job application.
In order for us to provide you relevant information about our services (which you have shown an interest in), or applying for employment we need to collect personal data to deliver our services and conduct business.
In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
We may pass your personal data on to other Metalock Group Companies in the course of dealing with you.
Any Metalock Group Companies that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to supply information requested by you, send you their information because you have shown interest in their services, or potentially offer you employment if you are applying to us for a job. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with Metalock procedures.
Metalock will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary.
Metalock is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
Metalock at your request, can confirm what information we hold about you and how it is processed.

Metalock may ask for appropriate forms of ID when information on your personal data is requested.
