Last updated: 21 February 2024


The Revolut entities listed at Schedule 1 (Revolut Employers) (“Revolut”, “we”, “our” or “us”) provide this notice to you because you are applying to work with us as an employee, worker or contractor.

This notice sets out the basis on which we will process your personal data. Please read it carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal data and how we will use it.

About Us

Revolut is the controller of the personal data of prospective employees, workers and contractors, and is subject to applicable data protection laws.

If you have any questions about this notice or your personal data, or wish to exercise any of your rights as described in this notice or under applicable data protection laws, you can contact Revolut’s Data Protection Officer through [email protected].

What types of personal data are protected?

Personal data

This notice applies to your “personal data”. This is any information relating to you as an identified or identifiable person.

‘Special categories of personal data’ (United Kingdom (UK) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries) or ‘sensitive personal data’ in other countries

Within the broad range of information which can be personal data, information revealing the following characteristics are considered “special categories of personal data” in the UK and EEA and are therefore subject to a greater degree of protection:

  • physical or mental health;
  • racial or ethnic origin;
  • political opinions;
  • trade union membership;
  • religious or philosophical beliefs;

Outside of the UK and EEA, other types of sensitive personal data, in addition to the “special categories of data” mentioned above, may include:

  • social status;
  • criminal history;
  • membership of a professional or trade association;
  • social security numbers;
  • bank account information; and
  • financial data.

    Data relating to criminal convictions and offences

    Where required and allowed by law, we also collect and store personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences. In cases where we need to identify a lawful basis for such processing, then, depending on local laws, such processing is carried out with your consent, to comply with our legal obligations or on the basis of our legitimate interests (to ensure we hire suitable candidates). This data is only processed where it is necessary for the purposes of:

    • complying with or assisting other persons to comply with a regulatory requirement which involves Revolut taking steps to establish whether you have committed an unlawful act or been involved in dishonesty, malpractice or other seriously improper conduct;
    • preventing or detecting unlawful acts (including fraud);
    • any legal proceedings (including prospective legal proceedings);
    • obtaining legal advice; or
    • establishing, exercising or defending legal rights.

    • establishing, bringing or defending legal claims; and
    • in the case of personal data about your physical or mental health, to enable Revolut to assess your working capacity and take decisions for occupational health purposes.

    In the case of “equal opportunities monitoring”, please note that participation is voluntary and providing this information is optional. Any information you provide will not be accessible or used in the hiring process, and has no effect on your opportunity for employment.

    Disclosure of your personal data to third parties

    For the purposes set out in Section 7 above, we may share your personal data with:

    • our group companies where necessary to process your application;

    We also disclose your personal data to third parties where it is in our legitimate interest to do so, including for the following reasons:

    • if all or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held about our applicants will be one of the transferred assets; and
    • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation.

    Except as set out in this notice, or as required by law, we do not sell your personal data or disclose it to any third parties without your consent.

    Security of your personal data

    We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is safe and take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this notice.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of personal data through the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to or stored on our IT system, and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

    If we share your personal data with any third party, we will take all necessary steps to make sure that your personal data is handled lawfully and securely by that third party.

    How long we keep your personal data

    We will keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this notice or the terms of any contract that we enter into, or for such longer period as may be required by law. After this, where allowed by laws and this notice, we will erase or anonymise your personal data. If you need any additional information about this, please contact our Data Protection Officer at [email protected].

    Automated decision-making

    We may use automated decision-making in the form of online assessments to help streamline our recruitment processes. These online assessments are mainly designed to assess your competency for the role you have applied for, your working style and / or whether or not you would be suitable for a role with Revolut. These online assessments will produce a score based on the responses you provide, which we then use to determine whether or not to progress your application.

    If you are not happy with the outcome of any automated decision we have made, you have the right to challenge this. See the “Exercising Your Rights” section below for more information about how you can do this.

    Your rights

    Subject to applicable laws in your location, you may have certain rights in relation to your personal data, including the right to:

    • access a copy of the personal data which we hold about you;
    • ask us to correct your personal data if you think it's wrong;
    • ask us to delete your personal data in certain circumstances;
    • object to us processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests or another lawful basis in certain circumstances;
    • ask us to restrict how we use your personal data in certain circumstances;
    • ask us to transfer personal data to you or another company in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format in certain circumstances;
    • withdraw your consent (where you have previously given us this); and
    • ask us to carry out a human review of an automated decision we make about you.

    Please note that not all of these rights are absolute and we may not be required to comply with your request where exemptions apply under applicable data protection laws.

    Exercising your rights

    You can exercise any of your rights as described in this notice and under data protection laws by contacting Revolut’s Data Protection Officer through [email protected].

    Where we have reasonable doubts concerning the identity of the person making the request, we may request additional information necessary to confirm your identity.

    We will endeavour to respond to your request within the time period mandated by applicable law. In the UK and the EEA, this means that we will endeavour to respond to your request within one month. Please note, however, that this time period may be extended by a further two months in some cases.

    International transfers

    Your personal data will be stored on servers located in the United States, UK or EEA.

    Where required by applicable laws, your consent to the transfer of your personal data outside your home country will be obtained as part of your application.

    As an international organisation, authorised personnel may access your personal data in any country in which we operate (see Schedule 1). Therefore, it may be necessary to transfer your details to members of our group located in countries that may not have equivalent data protection or privacy laws to those which apply in your own country. We may also need to transfer your personal data to third party service providers located in other countries.

    Regardless of where your personal data is transferred, we shall put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with applicable law. For individuals in the EEA and UK, this usually means entering into Standard Contractual Clauses with the recipients of your data who are located in countries which are not recognised as having adequate data protection laws. More details regarding these safeguards can be obtained from the Data Protection Officer whose details are given above.


    Please direct any complaints about how Revolut processes your personal data to our Data Protection Officer.

    You also have the right to complain to your local data protection authority:

    • a list of European Union data protection authorities can be found here;
    • the United Kingdom’s data protection authority’s contact details can be found here; and
    • the Brazilian data protection authority’s contact details can be found here.
