What data will we process
We may collect personal data (including special categories of personal data and personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences) that you submit to us in support of an application for a role with us.
Types of personal data collected as part of the recruitment process include:
- contact details (email address and phone number)
- Date of birth
- Previous employment details
- Education history
- Qualifications and skills; and
- anything else that is contained in your CV, together with your cover letter
- Information from third parties such as references supplied by your former employer
- Evidence of entitlement to work
- Salary history and expectations
- D&I Data (Ethnicity and Disabilities – this is optional for candidates to complete)
We need your personal data so that we can consider you for the role you have applied for with us. We may also share your personal data with other people within Gravity Media for the same reasons.
If we decide to offer you a role with us, we may process your personal data so that we can hire you to work at Gravity Media. We process your data so that we can raise and offer you a contract of employment.
If we don’t offer you a role, we’ll of course stop processing your data. However, we may ask that we do keep your data for a time so that we can re-consider you for other roles with us. If that is ok with you, we would only process your data for these reasons.
We might also use your data to understand more about the demographics of people applying to work with us. This would be aggregated and anonymised so this information stops being personal data as we wouldn’t be able to identify you, and it wouldn’t be used to inform any decisions made about you.
With your consent we also collect ‘special category’ data to support the Gravity Media’s Ethnicity, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategy. This includes race, ethnic origin, and disability data and is anonymised once collected.

- A right to object to processing where lawful basis is that it is in our legitimate interests, but please note that we may still process your personal data where there are other relevant lawful bases. This also comes into play where we have compelling grounds to continue processing your personal data in our interests which are not overridden by your rights, interests, or freedoms.
- A right to have certain personal data erased where it is no longer necessary for us to process it, where you have withdrawn your consent (see paragraph below), where you have objected to the paragraph above, where your personal data has been unlawfully processed, or where erasing your personal data is required in accordance with a legal obligation.
- A right to request an explanation of the logic involved where we make decisions about you solely through automated means.
