What data is collected and processed

Ensuring your personal data is kept and transferred securely is of the highest importance to us.

Employers and professionals have complete control over the information that they upload to the Roostr site. Information is required for the management of temporary shifts and cover only. Consent to share personal information between employers and professionals on agreement of a job vacancy is given during the registration of personal details.

Detailed personal information is condensed into a profile for sharing with employers on agreement of a job. This is a single page PDF with contact details (name, address, email, phone number) and an overview of skills, qualifications and training and professional registration. Detailed personal details such as training certificates, NMC PIN numbers and DBS certificate numbers are stored on an encrypted hard drive. Roostr pledges to have no paper copies of personal information and the Data Controller (registered with the ICO) has responsibility for ensuring the security of all data controlled by Roostr.

Roostr registered users have the right to check what personal data is held about them. Roostr makes every effort to ensure that data held is up to date and encourages registered users to keep Roostr informed of any changes to personal data and update us accordingly. As a minimum Roostr will ask professionals and employers to review their personal data held annually, or more frequently if reason arises to review.

Roostr will ensure every effort is made to protect personal information. However no method of transmission over the internet whether by email or automatic notification via the app is guaranteed to be 100% secure. In the absence of a security breach Roostr will ensure notification to any relevant parties as soon as the breach has been identified.
