We are committed to respecting your privacy and complying with data protection law.
We want to help you make informed decisions, so please take a few moments to read this policy.
Who are we and why do we process personal data?
We are BigChange Group Limited a mobile workforce management technology company based in Leeds, United Kingdom and will process your data in one of the following ways:
• you are a BigChange customer and are already using our workforce management services.
• you are an employee, former employee or have applied for a role with us.
• you are a supplier to BigChange.
• you are a prospective customer and are exploring the products and services that BigChange can deliver to your organisation.
We’ve provided more detail in the sections below on how we use and manage your information.
You are a customer with BigChange:
As a business customer, we will process data that you input about your prospects, customers, suppliers, and employees. In some instances, you may arrange for others to input data on your behalf. Our role therefore is that of a data processor.
The data is collected from you via our websites, mobile apps, trackers, import services, system integrations and webservices API via our integration products. Contracts with BigChange constitute written instructions to process the data that you send to us or arrange for others to send to us.
What customer data do we process?
If you are a customer of BigChange, then we process two types of data:
• data that you provide to us about your customers, enabling you to deliver products and services to your customers.
• data that is required for us to deliver our contract to you, for example, contact information of your employees.
Where we are processing personal data to fulfil our legal obligations to our business customers, the data that we process and store on your behalf has determined them. Typically, our business customers process:
• name, and other identity data.
• address and contact details.
• timesheets and expenses.
• skills, qualifications and driving licence details.
• personal or business vehicle details.
• locations and journeys collected via vehicle tracking and other mobile devices.
• driving events and behaviour scores calculated using business customer configured algorithms.
• job-related photographs which typically would not include images of people or identity documents.
• phone call recordings and meeting videos.
• other business, personal and possibly sensitive personal data as determined by our business customers.
To deliver our contract to you, we will process information for business administration purposes e.g. Invoicing, shipping and installation of products and delivery of services. Information about you is collected when calls are made to the support helpdesk eg. Name, contact telephone numbers, email address. We may use this information for credit checking.
Like many organisations, we utilise technology to deliver great service to all our customers, in a sustainable way that is timelier and more accessible than if we had to visit everyone in person. e.g. Through products such as Zoom, Fireflies or Microsoft Teams. In some instances, we will record telephone conversations and web-based meetings for quality and training purposes. If you would prefer this information not to be collated, please inform your host at the beginning of any call.
Customer use of our integration products
If you are a BigChange business customer, you may purchase our integration products or services with third party providers such as Microsoft, Sage and Xero. By ordering these services and using these products we understand that you are instructing us as a data processor to pass personal data to/from your third party provider. In these instances, BigChange is not responsible for the data processing practices of third party providers. We encourage you to review your third party providers’ respective privacy notices before connecting.

By collecting and analysing equality and diversity data, we can ensure our recruitment practices are providing fair access and opportunities for all, and that we are able to meet our obligations under the equality act 2010.
We will store your personal data in our applicant tracking system for 12 months from the date of your initial application/submission. After the 12 months has expired, your data will automatically be deleted from our records except in circumstances where you are part of a live application process or you have updated your details, or you have asked to be considered for future opportunities with the organisation. In these instances, the retention period will be extended by a further 3 months. You have the right to delete your personal information at any time.

Our approach to the processing of your data
Regardless of whether you are a customer, an employee, or a supplier, we are custodians of your data. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data. The following sections outline our approach to keeping your information safe.
Disclosure of your information to third parties
A list of current sub-processor categories is available to parties with whom we either have contracts or are in discussions with. You can email email@example.com to request a list of sub-processor categories. We will introduce new sub-processors or retire existing sub-processors in order to deliver and optimise the service we provide to you. Details of how we manage transfer of personal data outside of the UK and EEA is detailed in the section below.
Transfer and use of information inside and outside the UK and European Economic Area
BigChange continually strives to maintain a high level of compliance with all applicable data privacy legislation and regulation in the united kingdom, the European Economic Area and beyond.
As we have partners and services providers based outside of the UK, your personal data may be accessed or otherwise processed in other countries. We have implemented measures and safeguards to ensure that any transfer of data is compliant with our data protection laws. For example, we have implemented appropriate transfer mechanisms, such as standard contractual clauses, that are approved by the ICO and / or the EU. Prior to the appointment of any new third party, we perform a detailed privacy impact assessments and data transfer risk assessments to ensure the companies receiving your data can comply with these obligations. We continue to assess our suppliers and are mindful of the recent changes introduced by the EU and the UK with regards to data transfers to the USA. Please contact us if you wish to know more.
As an internet-based platform, our customers may also access our services and products while visiting countries outside of the EEA. In accordance with our contractual obligations to deliver service, we interpret this as an instruction to export the data. The data protection and other laws of countries outside the EEA may not be as protective of your information as those in the UK or the European Union.
Data processed by BigChange is subject to data retention policy and processes which, where practicable, minimize the retention of data. We retain your data to comply with contractual, legislative, and regulatory obligations.
We will typically retain data on our systems for 12 months after the end of a contract with our customers unless they have requested that the data be held for a longer or shorter period of time. At the end of this period, the data will be removed from our systems.
In order that we can provide the best possible service to you, we have agreed and documented retention schedules that we consider to be relevant and proportionate to the service we are providing. If you would like more information on our retention periods, then please contact us at the addresses below.

We identify, develop, implement, maintain, and continuously improve a wide range of policies, processes, procedures, organisational and technical controls to maintain the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data. We are audited on a regular basis to ensure that these controls continue to meet the requirements of ISO 27001.
