Privacy Notice: Restart Expression of Interest (EOI) Form

Your privacy is important to Welsh Government. In line with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we have developed a Privacy Notice that covers why we collect and use your information. This Privacy Notice ensures that your personal data will be processed fairly and lawfully and in a transparent manner.

Why we collect and process the data collected

The Welsh Government will be the Data Controller for the personal data you provide on the Restart EOI form.  This will be carried out in line with our public task.  The data will be used by the Welsh Government to engage with your organisation for further discussions.

Who else may have access to your data?

We may share information with third parties, such as our public sector partners, including local authorities in Wales and the Wales Strategic Migration Partnership. We may also share personal information with colleges who are delivering ESOL to migrants in Wales and charitable organisations such aa Welsh Refugee Council, EYST, Oasis, and The Gap who will be delivering employability services for migrants in Wales. This will enable them to inform refugees that your company or business is actively looking to recruit refugees.

Personal data provided to the Welsh Government is stored on secure servers. Personal, identifiable data shared with our partners will only be transferred using accredited secure transfer systems.

How long are your details kept?

Your details will be retained on our systems in line with Welsh Government retention policy for up to 6 years as part of our ongoing training and quality reviews.
