When individuals apply to work at Faraday Keynes Ltd, the information they supply will only be used to process their application and to monitor recruitment statistics. Where we want to disclose information to a third party, for example where we want to take up a reference or obtain a "disclosure" from the Criminal Records Bureau we will not do so without informing them beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.
