Once the retention period has elapsed, Hot victory will ensure that any Disclosure information is immediately suitably destroyed by secure means, for example by shredding, pulping or burning. While awaiting destruction, Disclosure information will not be kept in any insecure receptacle. However, not withstanding the above, we may keep a recording of the date of issue of a Disclosure, the name of the subject, the type of Disclosure requested, the position for which the Disclosure was requested, the unique reference number of the disclosure and the details of the recruitment decision taken. Disclosure information is never kept on an applicant’s personnel file and is always kept separately and securely, in lockable, non-portable, storage containers with access strictly controlled and limited to those who are entitled to see it as part of their duties.
We maintain a record of all those to whom Disclosures or Disclosure information has been revealed and we recognize that it is a criminal offence to pass this information to anyone who is not entitled to receive it.
