Glasgow City Council is a local authority established under the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. Its head office is located at City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow G2 1DU, United Kingdom. You can contact our Data Protection Officer by post at this address, by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and by Phone on 0141 287 1055.
You are giving us your personal information to allow us to process your application for employment via the Glasgow Guarantee Scheme. We also use your information to verify your eligibility for the scheme, your identity where required, to contact you by post, email or telephone and to maintain our records and to process your application form.
We will use your information to offer you other services if you have signed the additional Consent based agreement. If you withdraw your consent for this at any time it will not affect the service we provide to you under the Glasgow Guarantee Scheme.
We provide these services to you as part of our statutory function as your local authority. You can find more details of our role on our www.glasgow.gov.uk/privacy. Processing your personal information is necessary for the performance of a contract with you (or to take steps to enter into a contract with you), and on the basis of your consent.
We also need to receive and process more sensitive personal information about you in order to meet our legal obligations in relation to employment, social security and social protection law if, in the initial on-line application process you have passed the eligibility check.
If you do not provide us with the information we have asked for, then we will not be able to provide this service to you.
We are legally obliged to safeguard public funds so we are required to verify and check your details internally for fraud prevention. We may share this information with other public bodies (and also receive information from these other bodies) for fraud checking purposes.
We are also legally obliged to share certain data with other public bodies, such as HMRC and will do so where the law requires this. We will also generally comply with requests for specific information from other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and appropriate.
Your data will be shared with any potential employers of which we will inform you. If you have registered with Glasgow Guarantee as a School Leaver, we may share your information with Glasgow City Council (Education Services). This could be beneficial to you as they can signpost you to additional employability support.
We only keep your personal information for the minimum period amount of time necessary. Sometimes this time period is set out in the law, but in most cases it is based on the business need. We maintain a records retention and disposal schedule which sets out how long we hold different types of information for.
You can view this on our website at www.glasgow.gov.uk/rrds or you can request a hard copy from the contact address stated above.
Objecting to how we may use your information – You have the right at any time to tell us to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Restricting how we may use your information – in some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information that we hold about you or we are assessing the objection you have made to our use of your information.
This right might also apply if we no longer have a basis for using your personal information but you don't want us to delete the data. Where this right is realistically applied will mean that we may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.
If you have provided anyone else's details on this form, please make sure that you have told them that you have given their information to Glasgow City Council. We will only use this information to process your application and contact you if your registration is successful in order to allow us to offer you a place. We also use your information to contact you by post, email or telephone regarding the event.
