How we use cookies
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Controlling your personal information

Your rights as a data subject

You have the right to:

  • a copy of your data if you ask for it
  • require us to change incorrect or incomplete data
  • require us to delete or stop processing your data (for example where the data is no longer needed)
  • object to the processing of your data, where GCL is relying on its legitimate interests as the legal ground for processing
  • ask us to stop processing data for a period if data is inaccurate, or if there is a dispute about whether or not your interests override our legitimate grounds for processing data
  • withdraw consent at any time.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact the data protection officer in writing.

We will no longer process any application if a job-seeker tells us that they withdraw consent.

If you work for us, and have given consent to GCL to collect, process and transfer your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.

If you withdraw your consent, we will dispose of your personal data securely. There may be circumstances where GCL will still need to process your data for legal or official reasons. We will inform you if this is the case, and we will restrict the data to the information we need to meet those specific reasons.

You do not have to give personal data to GCL

You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide data to us during the recruitment process. However, if you do not provide the information, we may not be able to process your application successfully.

If you work for GCL, we have to have details like your right to work in the UK, your contact details, and payment information so we can enter into a contract with you. If you do not give us this information, we will find it difficult to manage your rights and our obligations efficiently.

If you are unsure about giving personal data, or want to talk about why we are processing your personal data, please contact the data protection officer.

You do not have to provide information for equal opportunities monitoring purposes. The information helps us to see if we are being fair to everyone, but there are no consequences for your application if you choose not to provide such information.

We do not use automated decision-making to make employment decisions.


If you believe that GCL has not complied with your data protection rights or wish to complain about this privacy notice, email data protection officer at

You have the right to lodge a complaint to the information commissioner’s office (ICO) at any time.
