5. Retention of data

KWAP stores data until it is no longer necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected.  This is a case-by-case determination that depends on things such as the nature of the data, why it was collected and processed and relevant legal or operational retention needs.


In some circumstances, KWAP may anonymise your information or aggregate it with other information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case KWAP may use the information without further notice to you.

6. Sensitive information

By expressly signifying your consent to us, you give us your explicit consent to process your sensitive personal data such as your mental or physical health and condition, religious beliefs and/or misconducts (civil or criminal, if any) for the purposes described above or as required by law.

  1. You can choose to provide sensitive information to us about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, sexual orientation, political opinions, your health, and/or criminal convictions, allegations, proceedings and offenses which relate to you (“Sensitive Information”).

Where KWAP collects, uses and shares your Sensitive Information in cases where UK / EEA data protection laws apply, it relies upon one or more of the following legal bases:
    • with your consent, which you may revoke at any time;
    • to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or

Save and except for the above, we will not disclose your personal data to any other third parties without your consent.  However, we may disclose your personal data in good faith, if such action is necessary to comply with government or law enforcement agency (including those overseas) requirements, court orders or legal processes, or if required by law.


For residents of the UK or EEA

To ensure that your information receives an adequate level of protection when we transfer data to any country which is not the subject of an adequacy decision, KWAP has or will put in place appropriate measures, including standard contractual clauses.

Under UK and EEA data protection laws, a data controller is responsible for deciding how it holds and uses information about you.

If information is collected directly by PEUK, they may be acting as a processor of KWAP. However, in some circumstances, for example where PEUK has a direct relationship with vendors, PEUK may act as a data controller.
