Security Screening

Screening Information

Successful applicants to THREE SG are required to complete a security screening check before commencing employment with THREE SG. This process is outsourced to the National Security Screening Agency Ltd (NSSA), a THREE SG approved screening company. The NSSA collect personal data for the purpose of carrying out background screening on behalf of THREE SG employees. Successful applicants are asked to complete an NSSA security screening application form provided by the THREE SG. Applicants are asked to provide their current passport or a birth certificate, a driving license and a utility bill or bank statement with their current home address stated. These forms are checked and counter signed by the THREE SG and then forwarded to the NSSA. The NSSA will ask the applicant about their previous work experience, education, referee details, and for answers to the questions relevant to the role they have applied for. The NSSA will share the applicant’s name, date of birth and address history with third parties (the Criminal Disclosure and Barring Service and Equifax) where it is necessary to fulfill their contractual obligations to the applicant and to THREE SG, and where obliged to do so by law.

Once the preliminary screening is successful, the applicant can then commence their employment with THREE SG. The THREE SG compiles a separate file relating to their employment containing the documentation listed above. The information contained in this is kept in a secure location and is password protected by the THREE SG and only used for purposes directly relevant to that person’s employment.


Information Retention

If the employment is terminated or an employee resigns, THREE SG retains both the security screening and HR file for each individual file for 7 years before destruction. THREE SG will inform any third parties processing the data to remove it subject to data protection requirements.



Key holding Information


Three SG will collect for key holding services:

  • Name, address, telephone and passwords.

This is for the identification of end users and to inform clients of alarm conditions and events relating to the system under contract.


Information Retention

This information will be held for the length of the contract and deleted/erased 24 months after cancellation.
