How we use your information

Lekela will only use your personal information where we consider there to be a lawful basis for doing so. Some processing may be necessary so that we can perform a contract with you or because it is required by law.

We may also process your personal information where we have a legitimate interest in carrying out the relevant processing. Our legitimate interests include the processing of personal information in order to:

  • Respond to any request you may make;
  • Process and reply to your employment application form;
  • Manage relationships with suppliers (including administering payment obligations); and
  • Meet our legal and regulatory obligations, (our "Legitimate Interests").

Our processing of your personal information as described in this data privacy policy is allowed under applicable data protection law because we reasonably need to carry out the processing for these Legitimate Interests and we have taken the necessary steps reasonably required (including strict security measures) to ensure that we do not prejudice your privacy rights.

Disclosures of your information

We will keep your personal information confidential and secure and will not disclose it, except:

  • to any member of our group, which includes our subsidiaries, our shareholders and their subsidiaries or affiliates;
  • to other persons, only when we are legally obliged to disclose your information; and
  • certain business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors where the service they provide to us requires access to our systems and records.

Your personal information may, for the above purposes, be processed by or transferred to the above mentioned recipients such as our subsidiaries, business partners or other persons in any country worldwide. Such international transfers will be done in accordance with the applicable requirements of data protection law, which may include implementing appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data such as entering into the required standard data protection clauses.

Where we store your personal data

We will store your personal data on our electronic servers and as part of our corporate records where such data forms part of hard copy documentation. We maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against unauthorised or unlawful use, as well as against accidental loss, damage or destruction. In addition, we expect our third-party service providers to adhere to strict confidentiality and data protection obligations.

How long do we keep your personal information?

How long we keep your personal information will depend on the purpose for which we are using your personal information. We will keep your information according to our records management policies and/or for as long as necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, applicable contractual requirements or pursuant to our Legitimate Interests.

Retaining and deleting your information

We will not retain the personal information that we hold about you for any longer than is reasonably necessary for the purpose for which the information was collected, after which information will be deleted in accordance with our records management policies.

Your rights in relation to our processing of your information

You may request information about, or a copy of, the personal information relating to you which is kept on file.

If you consider us to hold inaccurate or incomplete information about you, please let us know and we will correct it.

You may request that we erase personal information we hold about you, but please note that there are circumstances where we are legally entitled to retain your information.

In some circumstances you may have a "data portability" right to require us to transfer your information to you or a new service provider. Please note this only applies to information that you have provided to us.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

If you are of the view that we have infringed any of your rights in relation to your personal information, you can also raise complaints or concerns about our use or other processing of your personal information with the relevant data protection authority. If required, we will let you know the identity of the relevant data protection authority upon receiving your request.
