4.7             Transfer of personal information of EEA data subjects out of the EEA

4.7.1          Due to the global nature of the services that we provide, it is sometimes necessary for us to share the personal information of data subjects in the EEA with parties outside the EEA, for example:

(a)              with our offices outside the EEA;

(b)              with our service providers located outside the EEA;

(c)              if the data subject is based outside the EEA; or

(d)              where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to the data subject.

4.7.2          These transfers are subject to special rules under European data protection law.

4.7.3          The Company may transfer personal information outside the EEA to:

(a)              a country, territory or organisation that is designated as having an adequate level of protection; or

(b)              an organisation receiving the information that has provided adequate safeguards by way of binding corporate rules, standard data protection clauses or compliance with an approved code of conduct.

4.7.4          In the absence of a European Commission adequacy decision, or of appropriate safeguards, we may need to transfer personal information of an EEA data subject to non-EEA countries where this is necessary for the performance of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

4.7.5          There may also be circumstances where we ask for the explicit consent of an EEA data subject to the transfer of personal information to a non-EEA country for purposes other than the performance of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In such circumstances, we will inform the data subject of the increased risks of such transfer due to the absence of safeguards and the fact that these non-EEA countries (for example, the People's Republic of China) do not have the same data protection laws as the EEA.

4.7.6          We will, however, ensure that all transfers of personal information of EEA data subjects out of the EEA comply with the GDPR. Our practice is, wherever possible and applicable, to use standard data protection contract clauses that have been approved by the European Commission. Those clauses are available on the following website of the European Commission:

https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/model-contracts-transfer-personal-data-third-countries_en

4.7.7          If you would like further information please contact the Data Protection Officer as shown at paragraph  REF _Ref515052361 \r \h  \* MERGEFORMAT 1.7 of this Policy. 

5. Basis for processing personal information

5.1             In relation to any processing activity we will, before the processing starts for the first time, and then regularly while it continues:

5.1.1          review the purposes of the particular processing activity, and select the most appropriate lawful basis (or bases) for that processing, i.e.:

(a)              that the data subject has consented to the processing;

(b)              that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;

(c)              that the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the Company is subject;

(d)              that the processing is necessary for the protection of the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person; or

(e)              that the processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests of the Company or a third party, except where those interests are overridden by the interests of fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject – see paragraph  REF _0d4b6653-f507-44fe-8d13-efc1afb19aa4  \d " " \h \n   \* MERGEFORMAT 5.2 of this Policy.

5.1.2          except where the processing is based on consent, satisfy ourselves that the processing is necessary for the purpose of the relevant lawful basis (i.e. that there is no other reasonable way to achieve that purpose);

5.1.3          document our decision as to which lawful basis applies, to help demonstrate our compliance with the data protection principles;

5.1.4          include information about both the purposes of the processing and the lawful basis for it in our relevant privacy notice(s);

5.1.5          where sensitive personal information is processed, also identify a lawful special condition for processing that information (see paragraph  REF _95b75374-01d5-4ee4-9718-756282ae9668  \d " " \h \n   \* MERGEFORMAT 6.2.2 of this Policy), and document it; and

where criminal offence information is processed, also identify a lawful condition for processing that information, and document it.

5.2             When determining whether the Company’s legitimate interests are the most appropriate basis for lawful processing, we will:

5.2.1          conduct a legitimate interests assessment ("LIA") and keep a record of it, to ensure that we can justify our decision;

5.2.2          if the LIA identifies a significant privacy impact, consider whether we also need to conduct a data protection impact assessment ("DPIA");

5.2.3          keep the LIA under review, and repeat it if circumstances change; and

5.2.4          include information about our legitimate interests in our relevant privacy notice(s).

6.  Sensitive personal information

6.1             Sensitive personal information is sometimes referred to as ‘special categories of personal data’ or ‘sensitive personal data’ (e.g. information about your health status).

6.2             The Company may from time to time need to process sensitive personal information. We will only process sensitive personal information if:

6.2.1          we have a lawful basis for doing so as set out in paragraph  REF _867f06a5-8e14-44da-b591-08c13febe99b  \d " " \h \n   \* MERGEFORMAT 5.1.1 above, for example, it is necessary to comply with the Company’s legal obligations or for the purposes of the Company’s legitimate interests; and

6.2.2          one of the special conditions for processing sensitive personal information applies, for example:

(a)              the data subject has given explicit consent; including but not limited to:

when you request special passenger services from us, such as for passengers with wheelchairs or passengers requiring a stretcher

when you request refunds from us

(b)              the processing is necessary for the purposes of exercising the employment law rights or obligations of the Company or the data subject;

(c)              the processing is necessary to protect the data subject’s vital interests, and the data subject is physically incapable of giving consent;

(d)              processing relates to personal data which are manifestly made public by the data subject;

(e)              the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or

(f)               the processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest.

6.3             Before processing any sensitive personal information, our staff shall notify the Data Protection Officer of the proposed processing, in order that the Data Protection Officer may assess whether the processing complies with the criteria noted above.

6.4             Sensitive personal information will not be processed until:

6.4.1          the assessment referred to in paragraph  REF _bbb8b8ef-d1e8-4949-8fc2-8ef2623b34c9  \d " " \h \n   \* MERGEFORMAT 6.3 has taken place; and

6.4.2          the individual has been properly informed (by way of a privacy notice or otherwise) of the nature of the processing, the purposes for which it is being carried out and the legal basis for it.

6.5             During the recruitment process: the HR department, with guidance from the Data Protection Officer as necessary, will ensure that (except where the law permits otherwise):

6.5.1          during the short-listing, interview and decision-making stages, no questions are asked relating to sensitive personal information, such as race or ethnic origin, trade union membership or health;

6.5.2          if sensitive personal information is received, for example, the applicant provides it without being asked for it within his or her resume or during the interview, no record is kept of it and any reference to it is immediately deleted or redacted;

6.5.3          any completed equal opportunities monitoring form is kept separate from the individual’s application form, and not be seen by the person shortlisting, interviewing or making the recruitment decision;

6.5.4           ‘right to work’ checks are carried out before an offer of employment is made unconditional, and not during the earlier short-listing, interview or decision-making stages;

6.5.5          we will only ask health questions once an offer of employment has been made.

7. Criminal records information

7.1             We do not process criminal records information unless required to do so by relevant government authorities (for example, for immigration and security purposes) and under the control of the relevant official authority or authorities.

8. Data protection impact assessments (DPIA)

8.1             Where processing is likely to result in a high risk to an individual’s data protection rights, we will, before commencing the processing, carry out a DPIA to assess:

8.1.1          whether the processing is necessary and proportionate in relation to its purpose;

8.1.2          the risks to individuals; and

8.1.3          what measures can be put in place to address those risks and protect personal information.

9. Documentation and records

9.1             We will keep written records of processing activities which are high risk (for example, which may result in a risk to individuals’ rights and freedoms or involve sensitive personal information or criminal records information), including:

9.4.1          carrying out information audits to find out what personal information the Company holds;

9.4.2          distributing questionnaires and talking to staff across the Company to get a more complete picture of our processing activities; and
