In this process, we have balanced our interests against your fundamental rights and freedoms. Where necessary we have taken appropriate measures to limit implications and prevent unwarranted harm to you. For example, the exact level of screening will depend on specific job of the employee and the amount of personal data the employee will come in contact with.
