If you apply for a job with us, we will collect, process and store the information you have sent us for recruitment-related purposes, such as contacting you or making you a job offer (if you make it through the selection process). We will process this data on the basis of provisions of the Polish Labour Code which allow collection and processing of personal data of job applicants.

Otherwise, we will delete your data right after the recruitment process ends. You can withdraw your consent at any time, but it will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on this consent before its withdrawal.

Our Support and Services
From time to time, if you request technical support from us, we may ask you to provide our technicians with software log files or system log files. You should make sure that you do not reveal any personal or other sensitive data to us when sharing the log files with us. In case it is impossible for you to remove personal data from the log files, we may get access to a limited scope of personal data that you control and process using our software (e.g. some email addresses of people within your organization) contained in the log files. We will use these log files to render technical support services to you and also to analyze performance of our products and improve them. We will delete the log files once issues that they document are fixed and they are no longer needed.
We may also require passwords in order to perform support functions. If this is required, we will not permanently record this but retain for as long as is required to resolve your issue. We advise that you temporarily change your password in advance of this and change your password after the issue has been resolved.

We may retain some username and password details for systems within your business or home for support purposes only. These will be for local systems and not relate to personal systems such as personal email accounts or account details for online systems which contain personal data such as banking and online accounts. You remain the Data Controller for such login details and we, according to the GDPR will be a processor of these details. We will always ask for your consent and notify you of any system credentials we hold. You can also ask us to remove our records of this data at any time by calling 01296 668067 or emailing gdpr@tanstech.co.uk

We use ScreenConnect remote control software to access systems remotely. We will always ask your permission before we connect to any of your systems or install ScreenConnect on your systems before we initiate a session. Some sessions may be recorded and stored securely within our encrypted CRM systems. You can choose whether you want to retain the ScreenConnect client permanently or if you prefer to create a session for each support call. ScreenConnect is completely secure and encrypted and sessions are restricted to our own secure ScreenConnect accounts. We will only use sessions for support and maintenance purposes and with your consent.

When performing disk upgrades on your computers, we may take a copy of your data for back-up purposes to ensure data is not lost during the process. This will be stored locally on our network and deleted once the job is complete. If your disk is cloned to a new disk, we will return your old disk once the job is completed. It is your responsibility to safely store or destroy the old disk unless you provide consent for us to securely destroy it on your behalf. If you do, we will use software designed to securely erase the drive in accordance with data destruction guidelines. Written consent from you will be required if you wish for us to securely erase your data, we may also charge for this additional service. This will also be the case if you wish for us to recycle any old equipment which may contain your data.
