These collectively give you the rights to withdraw consent at any time where relevant.

The right of access

You have a right to understand what personal data is being processed and have access to this personal information.


The right to rectification

You have a right to have your personal data corrected if you believe there is inaccuracies or incompleteness.


The right to erasure

You have a right to have your personal data erased, this is also known as the right to be forgotten. This broad principle gives you the right to have your personal data removed if there is no compelling justification or legislative / regulatory reason to either retain your personal data or continue processing.


The right to restrict processing

You have a right to block or suppress processing of your personal data.

You have a right to data portability allowing you in certain circumstances to have your personal data ported across to another IT environment in a safe and secure way without hinderance to usability.

Article 4(11) of the General Data Protection Regulation states that consent is “freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.”

Transfers to third countries

Resst as part of offering certain features may use third party service providers within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”).

Resst ensures that any such transfer to such countries are listed by the EU, as being recognised as providing adequate level of protection for personal data or has the provision of adequacies such as in the US (limited by the Privacy Shield Framework).

If a statutory level of data protection applies that is not comparable to the level of data protection within the EEA. If such transfer occurs, it is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (according to EU Commission Decision 2010/87/EC or any future replacement) in order to contractually provide that your Personal Data is subject to a level of data protection that applies within the EEA. You may obtain a redacted copy (from which commercial information and information that is not relevant has been removed) of such Standard Contractual Clauses.

As Resst works internationally there may be times where your data has to be shared internationally such as:

  • to overseas prospective employers where we have your consent

  • to prospective employers within the EEA who may then share your data internally within their organisation to other parts of the business where have a shared legitimate interest in processing your data.

Those websites may handle your data differently to Resst and we take no responsibility for the way they process your data. We recommend that you read the privacy policy of any website visited.
