3.2 Personal Data
Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Personal data will only be processed by Enerpac Tool Group in a reasonable, lawful and fair manner. This means that Enerpac Tool Group will process personal data in compliance with applicable data protection laws and/or other laws and regulations. Examples of common types of personal data include name, address, social security number, salary details and financial information, CV’s, employee records and reviews, and references regarding employees.                                                                                                                                

The GDPR distinguishes between ordinary personal data such as name, address and telephone number and sensitive personal data including information relating to health, sexual orientation, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, and trade union membership. Under the law the processing of sensitive personal data is subject to additional and stricter conditions.

Employee personal data is processed by Enerpac Tool Group for the purposes of employment management and compliance with legal requirements. Individuals should note that Enerpac Tool Group will only process sensitive personal data in limited circumstances.

This Policy is intended to clarify how Enerpac Tool Group will process employee’s and external applicants/candidates personal data including sensitive personal data. References to employees covers external applicants/candidates where applicable.

In order to operate effectively and to meet its legal requirements, Enerpac Tool Group needs to process personal data for employment-related purposes. Where it does so, personal data will be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a way incompatible with these purposes. Processing of certain data will for some activities continue after employees have left the service of Enerpac Tool Group.

Examples of the main ways in which Enerpac Tool Group processes personal data in an employment context may include the following:

  1. Recruiting and staffing;
  2. Administration of salaries and expenses, pension, sickness benefit or other payments and contributions due under the contract of employment;
  3. Monitoring absence or sickness under an absence control policy;
  4. Administration of incentive compensation programs;
  5. Training and development, including performance appraisals;
  6. Management planning;
  7. Appraisal, promotion and salary progression reviews;
  8. Negotiations with trade unions or other employee representatives;
  9. Administration of Enerpac Tool Group policies;
  10. Compliance with any legal requirement to provide information about employees including regarding tax payments or employee membership lists to unions;

  16. To contact emergency contacts or emergency services in the event of an emergency, for example, illness or serious injury to an employee.

Employees and external candidates/applicants are asked to provide personal data at the point of application and throughout their employment for the purposes mentioned above.  Enerpac Tool Group will inform employees of any material changes in the way in which employee personal data is used.

Employee data maintained by Enerpac Tool Group will be used for the purposes, as mentioned above, of supporting company operations and providing employee benefits and compensation. Enerpac Tool Group HR and Payroll processes include tasks and procedures to keep personal data accurate, complete and current.

3.3 Consent
By consenting to this privacy notice you are giving us permission to process your personal data specifically for the purposes identified. Consent is required for Enerpac Tool Group to process both types of personal data, but it must be explicitly given. Where we are asking you for sensitive personal data we will always tell you why and how the information will be used.

You may withdraw consent at any time by following the process set forth in the Withdrawal of Consent Procedure, GDPR DOC 2.7A.

3.4 Disclosure
Enerpac Tool Group is comprised of a group of companies worldwide. Certain employee data contained on the centralized database will be accessible to other members of the Enerpac Tool Group companies, such as the United States and/or other countries, for the purpose of employee management and as outlined in this Policy. Additionally, there are situations when personal data relating to employees is transmitted to third parties (EU or non-EU based) to provide HR related services for Enerpac Tool Group, such as payroll services, compensation, expenses, employee engagement surveys, cultural and/or employee engagement assessments, healthcare services and other employee benefits and services/information required by law.

In addition, Enerpac Tool Group, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies (EU and non-EU based) to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When Enerpac Tool Group retains a non-affiliated company to perform a function of this nature, such third party will be required to take security measures to appropriately protect the data. Personal data may also be proportionately disclosed by Enerpac Tool Group to other third parties as required by law, for compliance with legal requirements or to defend a legal claim, in an emergency to protect the vital interests of an employee, in cases of business requirements (such as the sale of a business unit), or where the consent of the employee has been obtained.

Enerpac Tool Group has the authority to change or terminate this policy in whole or in part at any time, without prior notice to or the consent of any employee, unless otherwise described by local and/or European legislation and requirements.
