Information for individuals who are or were employees, interns or individual contractors as well as dependents of Shell Energy employees.
This Policy sets out what personal data we collect, for what purposes and your rights in this respect.
Every individual within the Shell group of companies (‘Shell’) is responsible for protecting personal data about each other as well as that of our customers, business partners and suppliers.
We process personal data necessary to manage the application process and employment relationship and to engage contractors and interns of Shell Energy.
This includes personal home contact information, date of birth, marital status, payroll and bank account information, wage and benefit information, emergency contacts, work history, qualifications, work performance information, information required to ensure you have the right to work in the country you are engaged in, as well as any other information necessary for managing the employment relationship and engaging contractors.
We may also process some special categories of personal data (’sensitive personal data’) such as data relating to an individual’s health, their racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation, political opinions and trade union membership. We will only process such personal data where it is necessary for the purposes of complying with employment and social security laws, for the establishment, exercise or defence of claims or where necessary for the purposes of providing occupational medical advice and support, to protect the vital interests of an individual (such as in an emergency), where necessary for reasons of public health or where the individual has provided their explicit consent.
We process your personal data:
Please note that as a general principle, Shell Energy does not seek or rely on the consent of Shell Energy Staff for processing personal data. However, there are limited circumstances when consent is required, such as if required by applicable local law.
Personal data requested from Shell Energy Staff are the minimum required in order to fulfil legal and/or contractual requirements and to provide opportunities to take part in programs or to provide a benefit. Failure to provide us with the information requested may negatively affect your ability to remain in employment, internship or engagement as a contractor or from participating in a program or receiving a benefit.
In those cases where processing is based on consent, and subject to applicable local law which provides otherwise, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This will not affect the validity of the processing prior to the withdrawal of consent. Withdrawal of consent may however impact your ability to remain employed or otherwise engaged or from participating in a program or receiving a benefit.
We may also process your personal data for a secondary purpose where it is closely related, such as:
All activities on Shell Energy IT equipment and/or when connected to the Shell Energy IT network may be monitored in line with relevant legislation and company policies for legitimate business purposes.
All Shell Energy Staff receive an access pass which allows Shell Energy to record the date, time and access points made by individuals within Shell Energy premises and assets. The data from the access and security systems may be used:
Most of our premises and assets are equipped with surveillance cameras (CCTV). Where Shell Energy operate surveillance cameras, they will be identified. Surveillance cameras are used for health, safety and security and specifically the protection of Shell Energy assets, Shell Energy staff and visitors to Shell Energy premises. All images are routinely deleted unless there has been a health, safety or security incident, suspected or actual criminal activity, in which case they may be viewed by internal Shell Energy investigation teams and externally if legally required or permitted by law enforcement or other government authority.
In order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations, to protect Shell Energy’s assets and employees/contractors and specifically to ensure that Shell Energy can comply with trade control, anti-money laundering and/or bribery and corruption laws and other regulatory requirements, we may carry out screening on all employees and contractors on a periodic basis. This screening takes place against publicly available or government issued sanctions lists.
Any personal data collected through the screening will not involve profiling or automated decision-making regarding suitability for continued employment, internship or engagement as a contractor.
