Your personal information

How your personal information will be used

We will only use relevant sensitive information where necessary and only in line with legal, regulatory and good practice requirements – such as reviewing health records to support staff with their occupational health requirements or looking at offences and proceedings, spent or unspent, in line with the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act.

We will disclose your information to YBS Group colleagues and anyone acting on our behalf on a need-to-know basis to enable them to carry out our selection process. We will respect your right to privacy and will keep your personal record only for as long as is necessary. We will not disclose your personal information to anyone without your consent, unless the law, public duty or our legitimate interests requires us to do so.

If we sell or transfer all or part of our business, we may transfer personnel records as part of the sale or transfer. However we will only do so under a contract, which protects the confidentiality and security of your information.

By providing your information you are consenting to the use of your information as detailed above for recruitment and employment purposes.

You have a right to obtain a copy of the personal information we hold about you. This is called a ‘Subject Access’ request. To obtain a copy of your personal information request a Subject Access Request form from any branch or by writing to:

Customer Relations, Specialist Team
Yorkshire Building Society
Yorkshire Drive
West Yorkshire

You have the right to have any inaccuracies corrected.

Further details of how we use personal information specific to recruitment and employment will be provided on the application form and on joining the Society if your application is successful.
