If you are employee of Clyde Gateway your information will be shared with our payroll service provider and with the Strathclyde Pension Fund should you remain opted into the pension scheme. We will also generally comply with requests for specific information from other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and appropriate. We do not share your personal data with any other organisation unless specifically stated in any agreement or contract we may enter into with you. Should this be the case a separate statement will be issued to you advising of the nature of the data shared and who we share it with.
