Special Categories of Personal Data

As we have said, we, where legally permissible, process your special categories of personal data on the following lawful bases:        

Retention periods

TIP shall retain your personal data, including marketing data, for only as long as we need it to fulfil the purpose(s) we collected it for. This includes retention of it in order to meet legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

We determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, by assessing a number of criteria. Those criteria include: the nature, and sensitivity of the personal data; the amount of personal data we hold; the risk of harm associated with the unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data; the purpose of processing of your personal data; whether we can achieve that purpose in other ways; and the relevant legal requirements.

For candidates, if you take up a role with TIP, we will retain the information you provided during the application process. This will become part of your employee file and held in line with TIP’s employee privacy policy or applicable laws.

If your application is unsuccessful, the information you have provided will be retained by TIP for six (6) months after we have communicated our decision to you. We do this, so that (in the event of a legal claim) we can demonstrate that we did not discriminate against candidates on prohibited grounds; and we conducted the recruitment process fairly and transparently.

After the six months have elapsed, we destroy personal information in a secure way, and in line with our data retention policy and our legal and regulatory obligations.

Children’s Online Privacy

We do not direct our website to minors and we do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13 years old, or as defined by local legal requirements. If we learn we have mistakenly collected or received personal data from a child without appropriate consent, we will delete it. If you believe we have mistakenly or unintentionally collected any information from or about a child, please contact us at Note: We do not collect, use nor process, Personal data of Individuals under the age of 18 on our website. If you are below the age of 18, then we do not want you to provide any of your personal data via our website.

Disclosure and Recipients of Your Personal Data

TIP will not disclose or give access to personal data we hold about you to any third party, except where:

  1. TIP sells any part of its business or assets. In this case, we might disclose personal data to any buyer or perspective buyer;
  2. it is necessary to disclose information to companies in the TIP Group, or to board members of those companies;
  3. to third parties who are providing services to us, such as IT services, or professional services that need to see that information and/or other services that help process data on our behalf for the listed purposes above
  4. to the extent required by law, regulatory body or court order, for example if we are under a duty to disclose your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation.

International Transfers

In some cases, we may transfer any of your personal data which is held in the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA) outside of the UK or EAA.

TIP has a subsidiary based in the United States. Occasionally, we may transfer personal data to this entity and employees of it. Please see the complete list of third countries in Part B of the Schedule below.

The Secretary of State in the UK has deemed that some countries outside of the UK provide an adequate level of protection for transfer of personal data outside of the UK. (“UK Adequacy Decision”).

Similarly, the European Commission has made an adequacy decision in respect of certain countries to whom we may transfer personal data outside of the EAA. (“EAA Adequacy Decision”).

But where we are transferring personal data outside of UK or EAA to countries where there is not an UK Adequacy Decision or an EAA Adequacy Decision, then we shall ensure it is protected in a similar way to any transfer we make to countries where there is an UK Adequacy Decision or an EAA Adequacy Decision. In appropriate cases this means that we complete standard contracts approved by the Secretary of State in the UK or (where appropriate) the European Commission.

If you need further information on how precisely we will protect your data when transferring your personal data out of the UK/EEA, then please email us at

We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal data from unauthorised disclosure or access.

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
