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

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).

- 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;
- professional advisors (including lawyers, accountants and auditors) where necessary to receive their services;
- legal and regulatory authorities (such as tax authorities) where necessary to comply with our legal obligations;
- our third party service providers, including our data hosting service provider, background screening check provider and online recruitment testing service providers.
We also disclose your personal data to third parties where it is in our legitimate interest to do so, including for the following reasons:
- in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets; or
- 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@example.com.
Subject to applicable laws in your location, you may have the following rights in relation to your personal data:
- the right to access personal data which we hold about you;
- the right to ask us to correct your personal data if you think it's wrong;
- the right to ask us to delete your personal data in certain circumstances;
- the right to object to us processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests or another lawful basis;
- the right to ask us to restrict how we use your personal data in certain circumstances;
- the right to ask us to transfer personal data to you or another company in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format in certain circumstances;
- the right to withdraw your consent (where you have previously given us this); and
- the right to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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:
