M Leggate and Sons (Produce) Ltd is a data controller and data processor for the purposes of data protection legislation. Relevant, authorised members of our staff will have access to the information.

We ask you to share information with us so that we can provide you with work-finding and related services.

Why do we process your information?

We process information about you known as ‘personal data’ to enable us to carry out our business as a Farm and Food Processors for the purposes of farming and food processing in a safe and fair way.

We have a duty of care to look after the best interests of our customers and to do that we need to collect and process relevant information.

We process some other information to help us make sure we are delivering a service that treats people legally and fairly, prevents human rights abuses, and is always improving.

Who will we share information with?

Information shared with business partners - We have contracts in place with these organisations that require them to treat worker information as confidential before we share worker information with them.  

Auditors & Inspectors - From time to time we may be audited by third parties to ensure that we are operating a legally compliant and ethical business.  These third parties may include:

Government regulatory and enforcement audits

Customer audits


Professional Advisors – including lawyers, banks, auditors and insurers


Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.


Other - If we would like to share your data with anyone not covered in this privacy notice (such as sharing testimonials with potential customers, for example), we will only do this where we have a legitimate reason to do so and where required will ask for your specific consent to do so.


What are your rights?

All individuals have the following rights regarding their personal information (also called ‘personal data’)

The right to be informed – You have the right to know what information we hold about you, what we are using it for, who we are sharing it with, how long we are keeping it, and on what basis we are processing the data.  While we always prefer to process data based on your explicit consent, as a recruitment organisation we also have a ‘legitimate interest’ in processing your data to ensure we are matching you to suitable vacancies.  There are also times when we have to process your information because we are required to by law.

The right of access – If you would like to see the records we hold on file for you, please contact Richard Leggate, M Leggate and Sons (Produce) Ltd, Main Road, Wrangle, Boston, Lincs, PE22 9AA.  All requests must be made in writing and will be dealt with within 30 days.

The right to rectification – If you believe we are holding incorrect information, you can ask us to correct it.

The right to erasure – You can ask us to remove your information from our records.  As long as there is no legal requirement for us to keep them (for example, HMRC require us to keep payroll records for 6 years), we will remove your details. This will mean that we won’t be able to contact you with any work opportunities in future.

The right to restrict processing – Instead of asking to be removed, you can ask us to stop processing it – so you can ask us to stop contacting you about work opportunities, for example.

The right to data portability – If you want to take your data to another organisation, please contact Richard Leggate, M Leggate and Sons (Produce) Ltd, Main Road, Wrangle, Boston, Lincs, PE22 9AA.

The right to object – You have the right to object to your data being processed on the basis of legitimate interests, direct marketing, and processing for statistical purposes.  We will stop processing your information immediately unless there are legal reasons for us not to do so.

The right not to be subject to automated decision-making (including profiling) – You have the right to object to automated decision-making.
