We operate on a global basis. Accordingly, your personal data may be transferred and stored in countries outside  the European Economic Area (EEA), including the Middle East, America and Asia-Pacific, which are subject to  different standards of data protection. 

We will take appropriate steps to ensure that transfers of personal data are in accordance with applicable law and  carefully managed to protect your privacy rights and interests. To achieve this, transfers are limited to countries which  are recognised as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where we are satisfied that alternative  arrangements are in place to protect your privacy rights. To this end, we will:  

  • Ensure transfers within Indian Elites Group are covered by an intra-group data sharing agreement entered into by  all relevant entities within Indian Elites Group, which contractually obliged each member to ensure that personal  information receives an adequate and consistent level of protection. 
  • When transferring personal data to third parties outside the EEA: 

o Put in place binding corporate agreements, which will include the standard contractual clauses  approved by the European Commission for transferring personal data outside the EEA, to ensure  that your information is safeguarded; or

  • Carefully validate any requests for information from law enforcement or regulators before disclosing the  information.  

We will cooperate with any regulators as required by law to ensure that we remain transparent about the way we  handle your personal information.

11. Security of Your Personal Information 

Indian Elites takes precautions including administrative, technical and physical measures to safeguard your personal  information against loss, theft and misuse, as well as against unauthorised access, modification, disclosure, alteration  and destruction. We protect electronic data using a variety of security measures including (but not limited to): 

  • Password access; 
  • Data back-up; 
  • Encryption;  
  • Firewalls
    • Placing confidentiality requirements on employees and service providers and providing training to ensure that  your personal data is handled correctly; and

12. How long do we keep your personal information? 

Indian Elites will only retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy  Policy and as otherwise needed to comply with applicable law and internal company policies. Where your personal  information is no longer needed, we will ensure that it is disposed of in a secure manner. Below are the general  criteria we use to determine how long we will keep your personal information, where upon we will either delete or  anonymise the data: 

  • Indian Elites careers portal: We will retain your information on our Indian Elites careers portal and may send you job  match emails (please refer to section 11 above) for a period of 12 months from when you last logged into the  system. We may contact you via email prior to deleting or anonymising your information to ask whether you  wish for us to retain these details. 
  • Graduate Programme: We will generally retain a candidate’s personal information on our graduate  programme systems for a period of 12 months following notification of the outcome of their application,  including the results of any automated decisions. If your application is successful, your information will be  transferred to our other systems and retained separately.  
  • Successful job applicants: If successful, we will keep your job application data as part of your employment record in line with Indian Elites’s Employee Personal Data Retention Guide. For more details, please refer to our employment privacy policy on our website at  
  • Unsuccessful applications: subject to the above, we will generally retain other information about an  unsuccessful applicant in relation to a specific job application or interview e.g. notes of interview responses,  hard copies of CVs, for a period of 6 months from the date the position was filled. 
  • Direct marketing and subscribed mailings: When you register to receive Indian Elites news and media alerts,  Indian Elites regulatory news alerts or job alerts about future employment opportunities, we will retain these details  until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive such communications (e.g. unsubscribing) (please refer  to section 11 above).  

In some circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time where we are required to  do so in accordance with legal or regulatory requirements or so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with  us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to  your personal information or dealings.  

13. Your Legal Rights 

You have legal rights in connection with personal information. Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right  to: 

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This  enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully  processing it.  
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any  incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. 
  • Request erasure of your personal information (commonly known as the “right to be forgotten”). This enables  you to ask us to delete or remove personal information in limited circumstances, where: (i) it is no longer needed  for the purposes for which it was collected; (ii) you have withdrawn your consent (where the data processing  was based on consent); (iii) following a successful right to object (see Object to processing); (iv) it has been  processed unlawfully; or (v) to comply with a legal obligation to which Indian Elites is subject.  

We are not required to comply with your request to erase personal information if the processing of your personal  information is necessary for a number of reasons, including: (i) for compliance with a legal obligation; or (ii) for  the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.  

  • Object to processing of your personal information by us or on our behalf which has our legitimate interests as  its legal basis for that processing, if you believe your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate  interests. If you raise an objection, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate  interests which override your rights and freedoms.

You can also object at any time to your personal information being processed for direct marketing, profiling or  automated decision-making. 

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend  the processing of personal information about you, but only where: (i) its accuracy is contested, to allow us to  verify its accuracy; (ii) the processing is unlawful, but you do not want it erased; (iii) it is no longer needed for  the purposes for which it was collected, but we still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv)  you have exercised the right to object, and verification of overriding grounds is pending.  

We can continue to use your personal information following a request for restriction, where: (i) we have your  consent; (ii) to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iii) to protect the rights of another natural or legal  person.  

  • Request the transfer of your personal information. You can ask us to provide your personal information to you  in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format, or you can ask to have it transferred directly to  another data controller, but in each case only where: (i) the processing is based on your consent or on the  performance of a contract with you; and (ii) the processing is carried out by automated means.  
  • Obtain a copy, or reference to, the personal data safeguards used for transfers outside the National  Union. We may redact data transfer agreements to protect commercial terms. 
  • Withdraw consent to processing where the legal basis for processing is solely justified on the grounds of  consent


If you want to exercise any of these rights, please submit your requests in writing to the DPO via the contact details  set out in section 14 below. Please note, to ensure security of personal information, we may ask you to verify your  identity before proceeding with any such request.  

We reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, for instance if your request is manifestly unfounded or  excessive. 

We may not always be able to fully address your request, for example if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we  owe to others, or if we are legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way.
