Fair processing notice for job applicants on handling of personal data
Data protection legislation regulates how certain data about you (received as part of applying for employment with the Sport Global group of companies, including SBC, Esports Insider, Affiliate Insider as well as affiliated company Oddslife), both in paper and electronic form, is used and held. Sport Global fully complies with the requirements placed on it as a ‘data processor’.


The following statement describes the type of data that Sport Global keeps about job applicants and the purpose for which it is kept and your rights under the GDPR related to data processed about you, should you apply to work for Sport Global.

Processing job applications
From the point at which we receive your application for employment with Sport Global, we will need to maintain and process data about you for the purposes of reaching and communicating a recruitment decision and production of an offer of employment if appropriate.


Such data is normally retained for six months following completion of our recruitment processes in the event of an offer of employment not being made.


Should an offer be made a further notice will be provided alongside any offer covering how such data is used and stored during the processing of offers and subsequent employment.


Processing at the recruitment stage includes the collection, storage, retrieval, alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. The kind of data that Sport Global may process includes:

  • Interview details including notes of interviewers, dates and times

  • Qualifications and experience relevant to the role
  • Date of birth (for post-employment checks only)
  • Contact details, including addresses, phone numbers and other contact details including historical address records for staff vetting and ID verification
  • Criminal records (only where relevant to the role and where legally permitted)
  • Court judgements and directorships (only where relevant to the role and where legally permitted)
  • References provided by previous employers and personal or educational referees
  • National Insurance number
  • Rights to work information for example copies of passports, ID cards, residence permits

Sport Global believes that those records are consistent with the recruiter, candidate and, in the event of an offer being made, employer relationship between Sport Global and yourself and with our requirements under data protection legislation.
