Our Privacy Policy

Diligenta is a UK based subsidiary of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). We are committed to dealing with our customers and employees honestly and fairly and as part of that commitment, we make every effort to ensure that all personal data and sensitive personal data is handled in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

How we use the personal information you give us

Where you provide personal information to us using this website, it will be held securely and only used for the purposes of job applications, recruitment and referencing. This will include using your personal information to verify your identity and for credit searches and other financial and employment checks, to ensure we meet regulatory and statutory requirements.

Where you provide us with information about any other living person, you should obtain the consent of that person and ensure that they are aware of the purposes for which their details are being held.

How we share your information

We may at any time share information about you with:

  • Other TCS group companies.
  • Any person firm or company to which we have outsourced any function.
  • Fraud prevention agencies and/or credit reference agencies.
  • The Financial Conduct Authority or any other regulatory or statutory body.
Because some parts of the TCS group are located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), your information may be transferred to countries outside the EEA. Countries outside the EEA provide a different level of data protection from the UK, so we have agreements in place to ensure your information is given the same level of protection as if we were processing it here in the UK.

Diligenta will not use, or share your information with third parties, for direct marketing purposes.

How long we keep your information

For successful job applicants, the information you provide will be stored securely as part of your personnel file and will normally be destroyed confidentially 7 years after your employment ends, but there are some exceptions to this. For more information, please write to the Data Protection Officer using the address at the end of this privacy notice.

For unsuccessful applicants, any information you provide will be stored securely and destroyed confidentially after 6 months.

How you can access information we hold about you

You have the right under the Data Protection Act 1998 to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you, in return for the payment of a small administration fee. You also have the right to ask us to delete information or correct any mistakes.

To make a request for any personal information we may hold about you, please write to the Data Protection Officer using the address at the end of this privacy notice.

What to do if you have a query or a complaint

If you think the way in which we collect and use your information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate, and you wish to query it or make a complaint, please write to the Data Protection Officer using the address at the end of this privacy notice.
