Why do we need to process your Data?
With the current COVID-19 Pandemic lock down restrictions being relaxed, the Company is putting in place measures to reduce the possibility of staff and other persons in the office being exposed to COVID-19 while they are in the location. To do this, we are asking for people to give us their explicit consent for us to process information about their health, specifically if they have a temperature as we would like to check their temperature with a contactless device. If a person has a temperature that is above the normal range (greater to or equal to 38 degrees), they will be asked to leave the office as a safety precaution as a higher temperature is an unconfirmed indication that the person may have COVID-19.
Why do we require your Explicit Consent?
The Data Protection Act 2018 requires explicit consent from a data subject for the processing of special category personal data. Special category data is personal data which the Data Protection Act says is more sensitive, and so needs more protection.
Who is responsible for the processing of your Personal Data?
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 2018, the data controller is the Company as stated above and The Company publishes its Privacy Statement on its website as above including their address.
Recipients of your Personal Data
The Company will not communicate the result of your temperature check to any other person other than the location General Manager and if you are any employee of the company, your line manager.
How long will we use your Personal Data for?
We will not retain this data.
Automated decision-making and profiling
