All pages on this site are XHTML 1.0 Transitional. All pages on this site use structured semantic mark-up. For example, h1 and h2 tags are used to convey document format. h1 tags are used for main titles, h2 tags for subtitles etc.
All pages on this site use valid mark-up. All visual styling on this site are presented using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and have been validated using the CSS validation service provided by the W3C.
Navigation is made accessible using unordered lists to logically order and define menu hierarchy. Main pages (Home and What we say) have only a global navigation, and all other content pages have both a global and a left navigation.
A link to the home page is available on each page. Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists and styled with CSS. Content skips (content and search) are enabled.

Where Flash has been used to communicate information, alternative text-only versions of the same content is available on the same page or a page linked from the Flash location.
Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail, (unless the text of the link already fully describes the target). Links are written to make sense out of context.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes or are commented out.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable. This site uses relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text size” option in visual browsers.
Foreground and background colours have been used that provide a good level of contrast and therefore easy to read. Throughout the site, colour is never used as the only way to convey information.

At SEFE Marketing & Trading Ltd (SM&T) (“We”), we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
As part of any recruitment process, we collect Personal Data which relates to you, the job applicant.
SM&T are transparent about how Personal Data is processed and carries out this activity in accordance with applicable Data Protection Legislations and Regulations.
This Privacy Notice covers:
For the purpose of this Privacy Notice and in line with applicable Data Protection legislation related to the jurisdiction in which you reside and, the jurisdiction in which the vacancy you have applied for is located, the Data Controller is:
SEFE Marketing & Trading Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 3768267 and, whose registered address is: 20 Triton Street, London NW1 3BF.
By visiting our websites and applying for a job with us, you acknowledge the terms of this Privacy Notice and agree to our collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Data for the purposes stipulated herein in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
What Information Do We Collect About You?
We will process the following data about you during the recruitment process:
How Do We Collect Your Personal Data?
We collect your Personal Data in three main ways:
Personal data that you give to us
We mainly collect your Personal Data directly from you.
There are a number of ways in which you can share your Personal Data with us, including:
In certain circumstances, we may process the Personal Data of third parties, such as an emergency contact or a referee. The Personal Data regarding third parties that you provide to us will be processed for the purposes of your application and to contact your next-of-kin in an emergency. Before you provide data relating to third parties to us, you should ensure you are permitted to do so and ensure that the third-party consents to our use, collection and disclosure of the third party’s personal data for the purposes stipulated herein in accordance with this Privacy Notice prior to making your application. You also confirm that you are authorised by the third party to provide such consent to us on the third party’s behalf.
Personal data we receive from other sources
We will also collect personal data about you from third parties, such as references supplied by former employers, information from employment background check providers and information from criminal records checks.
From time to time as permitted by applicable law(s), we may collect information about you and update any existing information that we currently hold from other third-party sources, including publicly available data sources, and publicly available social networking sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook.
Personal data that we collect automatically
When you access the website recruitment page, we collect certain technical information about your device (as set out above). We use this data for statistical reporting about the website’s users browsing actions and patterns, and do not link it to any individuals.
Why Do We Collect and Process Your Information?
We process your personal data for the following reasons:
Legal Bases for Processing Your Personal Data
There are a number of legal bases which allow us to lawfully process your Personal Data, and which may apply depending on the laws of the relevant jurisdiction:
In most cases, we process your data in order to enter into contracts with you relating to your employment or engagement with us.
In some cases, we need to process data to ensure that we are complying with our legal obligations. For example, we are required to check a successful applicant’s eligibility to work in the UK before employment starts.
We have a legitimate interest in processing personal data during the recruitment process and in keeping records of the process. Processing data from job applicants allows us to manage the recruitment process, assess and confirm a candidate’s suitability for employment and decide to whom to offer a job. We may also need to process data from job applicants to respond to and defend against legal claims. Where we rely on legitimate interests as a reason for processing data, we have considered whether or not those interests are overridden by the rights and freedoms of employees or workers and have concluded that they are not.
We process health information if we need to make reasonable adjustments to the recruitment process for candidates who have a disability. This is to carry out our obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
Where we process other special categories of data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health or religion or belief, this is for equal opportunities monitoring purposes.
For some roles, we are obliged to seek information about criminal convictions and offences. Where we seek this information, we do so because it is necessary for us to carry out our legal obligations and exercise specific rights in relation to employment.
How Long We Will Keep Your Data For?
We process and store your personal data to the extent necessary for the duration of the application process. If your application for employment is successful, your personal data will be transferred to your personnel file. The periods for which your data will be held will be as detailed in the standards on the handling of staff data policy. However, if your application for employment is unsuccessful, your personal data and/or application documents will be erased 12 months after the application process is completed.
This does not apply if your data is processed and stored in order to assert or exercise legal claims, or to defend against legal claims (duration of litigation) or we obtain separate consent from you to keep your application documents longer.
How Do We Keep Your Personal Data Secure?
Who Do We Disclose Your Information To?
Your information will be shared internally for the purposes of the recruitment exercise. This includes members of the HR and recruitment team, interviewers involved in the recruitment process, managers in the business area with a vacancy and IT staff if access to the data is necessary for the performance of their roles.
We may also share your Personal Data with other members of our corporate group, depending on the role you have applied for.
We disclose information to service providers who provide services on our behalf. Your data will only be used by our third-party providers to provide the requested services to us and each service provider is subject to a set of terms consistent with this Privacy Notice. We use the following types of third-party providers to provide us with services:
1. Providers of website management and hosting services;
2. Providers of email communication tools and webinar platforms;
3. Providers of professional services, such as accountants and legal advisors, where necessary; and
4. Third-party auditors, where necessary to meet our legal and regulatory obligations;
Sharing your data with potential purchasers of SM&T or its assets.
In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your Personal Data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
If we are under a duty to disclose or share your Personal Data in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation or to protect our rights, property, or safety, or the rights, property or safety of our customers, or others.
We will not otherwise share your data with third parties unless your application for employment is successful and we make you an offer of employment. We will then share your data with your former employers to obtain references for you, employment background checks providers to obtain necessary background checks and the relevant agency to obtain necessary criminal records checks.
Sharing Personal Data overseas
Some of our service providers and group companies are located outside of the EU, or Singapore (as the case may be).
If we share your Personal Data with those organisations, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data and that transfer of your Personal Data is in compliance with applicable data protection laws.
Where necessary, we have ensured that service providers (including other SEFE Group affiliates) sign standard contractual clauses as approved by the European Commission or other Supervisory Authority with jurisdiction over the relevant data exporter.
You have various rights in relation to the data which we hold about you, as described below. To get in touch with us about any of these rights, please use the contact details set out below. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within any time limits provided for in applicable Data Protection law (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled).
Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.
This right enables you to object to us processing your Personal Data, if such right is provided under the data protection laws of the applicable jurisdiction.
Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities (for example, for marketing), you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to use your data for that purpose unless we consider that there is an alternative legal basis to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose, in which case we will inform you of this condition.
You may ask us for: (a) a copy of the information we hold about you; and (b) information about the ways in which such personal data has been or may have been used or disclosed by us within a year from the date of the request, at any time. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will do so within a reasonable time and not charge you for this unless permitted by law. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.
You may have the right to request that we “erase” your Personal Data in certain circumstances, under the applicable data protection laws of the applicable jurisdiction. Normally, this right exists where:
1. The data is no longer necessary;
2. You have withdrawn your consent to us using your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue;
3. The data has been processed unlawfully;
4. It is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our obligations under law; or
5. You object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.
We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for erasure in limited circumstances and we will always tell you our reason for doing so. When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably practicable steps to delete the relevant data.
You may have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your Personal Data in certain circumstances, under the applicable data protection laws of the applicable jurisdiction. For example, if you dispute the accuracy of the Personal Data that we hold about you or you object to our processing of your Personal Data for our legitimate interests. If we have shared your Personal Data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing.
You have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data that we hold about you. If we have shared this Personal Data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification. You may also request details of the third parties that we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.
If you wish, you may have the right to transfer your Personal Data between service providers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer the details we hold about you to another third party, under the applicable data protection laws of the applicable jurisdiction. To allow you to do so, we will provide you with your data in a commonly used machine-readable format so that you can transfer the data. Alternatively, we may directly transfer the data for you.
You may seek to exercise any of these rights by updating your information online (where possible) or by sending a written request to email@example.com.
Right to complain
You also have the right to complain to your applicable Data Protection Authority.

The storage and documentation periods stipulated there are two to ten years. Finally, the storage period also depends on the statutory limitation periods, which is in Germany e.g. according to §§ 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch – BGB) as a rule three years, but in certain cases it can also be up to thirty years.
We use the so-called cookies or similar functions on the website of our Recruiting Management System to make our website technically available. We base the processing of your data through the cookies used for the aforementioned technically necessary purposes on our legitimate interest in the efficient operation of our website pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR and the applicable national implementations of the EU-Directive 2002/58/EC (ePrivacy Directive), such as the German TTDSG and the UK PECR. The setting of these cookies and similar functions is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.
Personal data can be passed on to the following recipients and categories of recipients:
Internally, access to your data is only granted on the basis of authorization. In the case of ongoing application procedures, these are the involved business functions of the SEFE Group companies, e.g. global and local HR business partners within the Human Resources functions, interview partners and managers from the relevant business units and, if necessary, social partners (works council, possibly also representatives for severely disabled people). Our Corporate IT provides technical support and ensures the functionality of the Recruiting Management System.
We use service providers who process personal data on our behalf (so-called processors, cf. Art. 4 No. 8, Art. 28 GDPR). This includes service providers in the areas of IT, telecommunications and recruitment service providers. In these cases, we have concluded order processing agreements with the service providers.
Insofar as we are authorized to do so on the basis of contractual or legal provisions, or on the basis of consent, we also pass on the above-mentioned personal data to other companies who process the data in joint responsibility (Art. 26 GDPR). Such joint responsibility is given in the following areas
In these cases, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with these companies. The main content of these agreements on joint responsibility is the ruling on the area of responsibility in the processing of your personal data. For example, any party against whom you make a claim is responsible for settling that claim. Each party is also responsible for the lawfulness of its own data processing in relation to the organisation of the recruitment process. In addition, the agreement regulates the responsibility between the data controllers for the cases in which the data subjects exercise their rights. This relates i.a. to the right to have personal data rectified or erased or to restrict processing.
Given the international nature of SEFE Group’s business and corporate governance, it may be necessary for an entity in a third country outside the European Union (EU) or outside the United Kingdom to have access to your personal data, or it may be necessary to transfer your personal data to an entity in a third country.
As a general rule, we do not transfer your data from to a third country or international organisation. However, should this become necessary, the transfer will only take place within the framework of valid contractual agreements or legal obligations and if the prerequisites pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are fulfilled.
We will only transfer your personal data if
Guarantees according to Art. 46 GDPR can be so-called standard contractual clauses. In these standard contractual clauses, the recipient assures to sufficiently protect the data and thus to ensure a level of protection comparable to the GDPR.
A “third country” is defined as a state outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in which the GDPR is not directly applicable. A third country is considered “unsafe” if the EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision for this state pursuant to Art. 45 Para. 1 of the GDPR confirming that an adequate level of protection for personal data exists in the country.
A transmission will only take place if an appropriate level of data protection is ensured in the third country (Art. 45 GDPR), suitable guarantees exist (cf. Art. 46 GDPR) or there is another legal permission (cf. Art. 49 GDPR) and insofar as this is necessary for processing and thus for the fulfilment of the contract or, at your request, for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the transfer is required by law or you have given us your consent.
As part of your application, you only have to provide the personal data required to start and carry out the recruitment process. The application process cannot be started without this data.
We do not use your personal data for automated decision-making, including profiling.
Every data subject has the right to information under Art. 15 GDPR, the right to rectification under Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure under Art. 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Art. 18 GDPR and the right to data portability from Art. 20 GDPR. In order to exercise the aforementioned rights, you can contact the offices named under number 1.
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you, which is based on Art. 6 Para.1 lit. f GDPR (data processing on the basis of legitimate interest). to insert this also applies to any profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If we process your personal data in order to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
The objection can be made in any form and should be addressed to the offices named in section 1. You will not incur any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariff.
If you have given us your consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. As a result, we will no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. The lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation remains unaffected.
Please address the revocation of consent to the office specified in section 1.
According to Art. 77 Para. 1 GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data is not lawful, in particular that it violates the GDPR. In this case, you have the choice of contacting the supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged violation. Irrespective of the aforementioned right to lodge a complaint, we will also accept your request ourselves (for contact details, see section 1).
