We hold personal information about all of our employees for employee administration and general management purposes. From time to time, we will ask employees to provide personal information for these purposes. In particular, the information will enable us to administer employee benefits, the payroll system, expenses, holiday, sickness and other absence records, carry out one to ones and performance appraisals, training records, salary reviews, to operate our communications systems and to comply generally with our legal obligations before, during and after employment.

Occasionally, the information we hold may include sensitive data relating to employee health and data held for equal opportunities monitoring purposes. Since we require all these details from employees in order to carry out all the above objectives, employees are obliged to provide the necessary information. It is however appreciated that employees may consider some information to be particularly sensitive, and employees will be informed when replies are not obligatory.

Mankind will from time to time need to make some of the information available to legal and regulatory authorities (such as to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs), to accountants, auditors, lawyers, other outside professional advisers and business contacts, and to other parties which provide products or services to Mankind (such as IT systems suppliers, and pension and benefits administrators).

Employee data will be retained in alignment with Mankind’s data retention policy. With the exception of pension records which will be retained for 7 years after the death of the beneficiary, all human resources data will be deleted 6 years after employees leave Mankind unless we are required to do otherwise for any statutory purpose. All payroll data will be deleted 7 years after employees have left Mankind.

From time to time we use online tools for carrying out surveys and communicating with employees that may collect personal data relating to employees. Information entered on some of these tools may go outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Information provided through third-party giving websites may also be processed outside of the EEA. No other personal information is transferred outside of the EEA. Where such information is processed by third parties, including outside the EEA, Mankind has in place a Third Party Data Processing Agreement with that supplier, which may be viewed upon request by email to admin@mkcharity.org
