However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

Unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, you may have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: (i) the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or (ii) the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.

We will take appropriate steps to protect the personal data you share with us. We have implemented technology and security features to safeguard the privacy of your personal data. We invest significant resources to protect your personal data, from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. However, no internet-based site can be 100% secure and we cannot be held responsible for unauthorized or unintended access that is beyond our control.


Protecting your details and protecting yourself against internet fraud

Here are some simple steps you can take to ensure your information is kept securely:

  • Be aware of "Phishing", which is where someone tries to represent themselves as someone else to gain information from you - always check whether emails from any sender are actually from them, and if in doubt, go directly to their website and do not click on links in emails, as these may take you to "clone" websites which use your information illegally.


Aggregate data, data analytics and social media functionality

We may aggregate personal data and remove any identifying elements in order to analyze patterns and improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to analyze Platform use, to improve our content and product offerings, and to customize our Website’ content, layout, products and services, and we may appoint third parties to do this on our behalf, as set out above.

We gather certain usage information like the number and frequency of visitors to our Website. This information may include which webpage you just came from, which webpage you next go to, what browser you are using, your device and your IP address. We only use such data in the aggregate. This collective data helps us to determine how much our customers use parts of our Website, and do research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand and serve you.

If you use buttons on our Website linked to social media or similar sites (for example "Like" and/or "Share" buttons), content from our Website may be sent back to that other website or service and, depending on your privacy settings, may be privately or publicly visible (for example to friends, followers or generally to anyone who has access to your profile page).



Our Website may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of web sites not operated by us or an entity in the SriLankan Group. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by our Website.


Transfer of your personal data


We only make these arrangements or transfers where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect any information held in that country or that the service provider acts at all times in compliance with applicable privacy laws. Where required under applicable laws we will take measures to ensure that personal data handled in other countries will receive at least the same level of protection as it is given in your home country.

Transfers will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses, a copy of which can be obtained from our legal team.

In the event your personal data is transferred to a foreign jurisdiction, it may be subject to the laws of that jurisdiction and we may be required to disclose it to the courts, law enforcement or governmental authorities in those jurisdictions but we will only do so where required by applicable laws.


Retaining and deleting personal data

Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.

In some cases, it is not possible for us to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained.

We will retain your personal data as follows:

a. recruitment data will be retained for a period of twelve [12] months following the date the role applied for is filled.

Notwithstanding the above, we may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.


Notification of changes to this Privacy Statement

If we decide to change our Privacy Statement, we will post those changes on our Website. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time it was collected (and/or where we are required under applicable law) we will notify you. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your personal data in this different manner. We will use personal data in accordance with the Privacy Statement under which the personal data was collected until you agree otherwise, but if you do not accept the amended Privacy Statement, please stop using our Website. Each version has a version number and date so you can check this easily.
