Information We Collect

Scoot Education collects, stores, and uses personal data to provide our recruiting, employment, outsourcing, and consulting services. We collect personal data about individuals who use our websites, apply for employment or engagement with us, or placement by us through our recruitment services, employees, and those who are representatives of our customers (including prospective customers). Scoot Education does not knowingly direct its services or obtain, sell, or share information from children under age 16.

Most of this data is provided by you directly when you contact us, submit an application, attend an in-person recruiting event, through phone conversations, contact us about our services, or during your outsourcing or employment relationship.

We also collect data about individuals who are employed or engaged by our customers in connection with our provision of outsourcing and consulting services to those customers.  This is generally obtained through our interactions with customers, suppliers, and service providers.

When you interact with a Scoot Education website or application, we collect data related to how you interact with that service by, for example, our use of cookies placed on your device.

We have set out further details below on the types of personal data we collect (and have collected in the prior 12 months), store, and use and the reasons we use your personal data. 

Why We Use Your Information

We will use your personal data where:

  • it is necessary for the performance of and compliance with your employment contract  or other applicable engagement contract with us or in order to take steps prior to entering into that contract or another contract with you;
  • we need to process your information in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (for example, complying with duties under employment, social security, social protection, and tax legislation for example, complying with our obligations under equality legislation or in relation to statutory sickness or maternity rights);
  • exceptionally it is necessary for vital interests relating to you or another person (for example, avoiding serious risk of harm to you or others); or
  • it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) provided that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests or rights which require protection of your data.

We will use special categories of personal data where:

  • you have provided your explicit consent. Where this is the case, you always have the right to withdraw that consent; 
  • we need to do so to carry out our legal obligations (e.g. in the context of employment, social security and social protection law, or for a collective agreement) for example, complying with our obligations under equality legislation or in relation to statutory sickness or maternity rights;
  • it is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims;
  • it is necessary for the purposes of preventative or occupational medicine, for the assessment of your working capacity, medical diagnosis, or provision of health care (for example, in relation to Occupational Health referrals and reports);
  • where it is needed for reasons of substantial public interest, such as for equal opportunities monitoring;
  • exceptionally, where it is necessary for vital interests relating to you or another person (for example, avoiding serious risk of harm to you or others) and where you are not capable of giving consent; or
  • where you have already made the relevant personal information public.

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
