The Table at the end of this notice provides more detail about the personal data that we use, the legal basis that we rely on in each case and your rights. 

Some personal data is classified as "special" data under data protection legislation. This includes information relating to health, racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, political opinions, biometric data, genetic data, sexual orientation and trade union membership. This personal data is more sensitive and we need to have further justifications for collecting, storing and using this type of personal data. There are also additional restrictions on the circumstances in which we are permitted to collect and use criminal conviction data. We may process special categories of personal data and criminal conviction information in the following circumstances: 

• In limited circumstances with your explicit consent, in which case we will explain the purpose for which the personal data will be used at the point where we ask for your consent.
