I would like to take this opportunity to thank David Torry and his team at Nodram for the recent reinstatement work they carried out at my house after the extensive repair work we had done.

They turned up when they said they would, the quality of work was excellent and the work was completed well within the suggested timescales.I can’t tell you how refreshing this service was after having dealt with so many other companies that just don’t have this type of customer focus.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nodram to any business or home user that requires painting and redecorating.
— Steve Brand, Director, G5 Technologies Ltd
Having worked with Donald in a professional capacity for some years, I was delighted to have Nodram paint and decorate the exterior and interior my new-build home. Nodram provided a friendly and approachable on-site team who worked efficiently and diligently on a tight programme.

Donald himself was helpful from the outset, offering good advice on the most appropriate products to use, and to ensuring the job had rigorous quality control on site. The finished job displays genuine attention to detail and quality and I would gladly recommend Nodram.
— John Braid. Senior Architectural Technologist, Leslie Hutt Architect
I am delighted to advise that with your help CALA Homes have achieved 5* Customer Satisfaction Award from NHBC for the 6th
consecutive year running. With 95% of our customers willing to recommend us this target is only achievable with hard work &
dedication. I therefore fully appreciate your continued focus to deliver the high quality product and service you are currently
providing across our developments and would like to thank you for working with CALA Homes, as awards like this are not
possible without good working relationships with all of our contractors and suppliers.
— Head of Customer Service. CALA Homes East Scotland
Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, the National Centre for Gaelic Language & Culture in Sleat on the Isle of Skye, selected Donald and his team
in 2010 as its preferred contractor to paint and protect the outside of its 3 principal shore-side buildings at Àrainn Chaluim Chille
(the Saint Columba campus). As the attached photo shows, the 3 buildings are to the left on a challenging coastal site with
significant year-round weather exposure and Donald provided a first-class service both in initially advising the College as to which
product would best meet its needs and in supervising the work itself.
The College’s Tower residency building is circular and 5 storeys high and Donald expertly advised the College on the most suitable
access arrangements so that the work to all 3 buildings was completed with the minimum of disruption to students, visitors and
staff. As a testimony to the quality of their work, the College has maintained close relations with Donald and his team in the time
since and we had no hesitation in recommending them for consideration by our main contractor for an award of contract in
respect of our latest building, Ionad Iain Nobail, which is due to open at our newly developed Kilbeg site in summer 2015
— Donald A. MacLennan, Head of Estates & Services, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig

Our GDPR readiness programme is looking at the following areas:


Staff training and awareness – how GDPR, the Data Protection Bill and the ePrivacy Regulation will impact clients, employees and the supply chain

Supplier management – ensuring all appropriate security, organisational controls and governance processes meet the demands of our clients and of Citation as it continues to grow

Development – ensuring we maintain our commitment to best practice and developing systems which meet recognised security standards and making sure we meet our commitment to privacy by design

Individuals rights – refining our approach to handling requests for data, or the handling of data, to meet the new demands of GDPR (including the right of subject access, cease processing requests and erasure of personal data)

Data retention – confirming data retention periods meet contractual, legal and organisations requirements.

Privacy notices – reviewing all notices to inform clients and employees of the way we handle their data.

Employee data privacy notice


Nodram [comprising Nodram Decorators Ltd, Nodram Decorators (North) Ltd and Nodram Decorators (Aberdeen) Ltd] is committed to data protection and data privacy. With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becoming enforceable from 25 May 2018, we have undertaken a GDPR readiness programme to review our entire business, the way we handle data and the way in which we use it to provide our services and manage business operations.

We hold personal data on all our employees to meet legal obligations and to perform vital internal functions. This notice details the personal data we may retain, process and share with third parties relating to your employment and vital business operations. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure, accurate and relevant. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have implemented suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure personal data we hold.


We have issued this notice to describe how we handle personal information that we hold about our staff and job applicants (collectively referred to as "you"). For the purposes of this notice, the term "employee" includes PAYE Employees and Net CIS Labour Only Sub-contractors. We respect the privacy rights of individuals and are committed to handling personal information responsibly and in accordance with applicable law. This notice sets out the personal data that we collect and process about you, the purposes of the processing and the rights that you have in connection with it.

If you are in any doubt regarding this notice, please contact Cyril MacPhee at our Bathgate office.

Types of personal data we collect

During your employment with us, or when making an application for employment, we may process personal data about you and your dependents, beneficiaries and other individuals whose personal data has been provided to us.

The types of personal information we may process include, but are not limited to:

·         Identification data – such as your name, gender, photograph, date of birth, staff member IDs.

·         Contact details – such as home and business address, telephone/email addresses, emergency contact details.

·         Employment details – such as job title/position, office location, employment contract, performance and disciplinary records, grievance procedures, sickness/holiday records.

·         Background information – such as academic/professional qualifications, education, CV, criminal records data (for vetting purposes, where permissible and in accordance with applicable law).

·         Spouse & dependents information, marital status.

·         Financial information – such as banking details, tax information, withholdings, salary, benefits, expenses, allowances, stock and equity grants.

·         IT information – information required to provide access to our IT systems and networks such as IP addresses, log files and login information.

·         If you are a temporary employee, contract worker or consultant, the type of personal information we process is limited to that needed to manage your specific work assignment.

·         References relating to previous roles and employment conduct may be undertaken prior to commencement of employment. We will only gather references from referees provided to us by the employee, or prospective employee.


Sensitive personal data (‘special categories of personal data’ under the General Data Protection Regulation) includes any information that reveals your racial or ethnic origin, religious, political or philosophical beliefs, genetic data, biometric data for the purposes of unique identification, trade union membership, or information about your health/sex life. Generally, we try not to collect or process any sensitive personal information about you, unless authorised by law or where necessary to comply with applicable laws. In some circumstances, we may need to collect some sensitive personal information for legitimate employment-related purposes: for example:

·         data relating to your racial/ethnic origin, gender and disabilities for the purposes of:

·         equal opportunities monitoring;

·         to comply with anti-discrimination laws; and

·         for government reporting obligations;

·         data relating to your physical or mental health to:

·         provide work-related accommodations,

·         health and insurance benefits to you and your dependents; or

·         to manage absences from work.

Purposes for processing personal data


If you are applying for a role with us then we collect and use this personal data for recruitment purposes – in particular, to determine your suitability for a specific role. This includes assessing your skills, qualifications and verifying your information, carrying out reference checks or background checks (where necessary) and to generally manage the hiring process and communicate with you about it. 

If you are accepted for a role with us, the data collected during the recruitment process will form part of your ongoing employee record.


We collect and process personal data relating to our employees to meet our obligations under the employment contract and to comply with our legal obligations. We take the security of your data seriously and are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use that data and to meeting our data protection obligations.

Once you become an employee, we collect and use this personal information for managing our employment or working relationship with you – for example, your employment records and contract information (so we can manage our employment relationship with you), your bank account and salary details (so we can pay you), your equity grants (for benefits plan administration) and details of your spouse and dependents (for emergency contact and benefits purposes).

Where we process special categories of personal data, such as information about ethnic origin, sexual orientation, health or religion or belief, this is done for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring. Data that we use for these purposes is anonymised or is only collected with the express consent of employees, which can be withdrawn at any time.

We have policies and controls in place to try to ensure that your data is not lost, accidentally destroyed, misused or disclosed, and is not accessed without authorisation and only accessed or used for specific legal purposes. 

You have some obligations under your employment contract to provide the organisation with data. You may also have to provide the organisation with data in order to exercise your statutory rights, such as in relation to statutory leave entitlements. Failing to provide this data may mean that you are unable to exercise your statutory rights.

Legitimate business purposes

We may also collect and use personal information when it is necessary for other legitimate purposes, such as to help us conduct our business more effectively and efficiently – for example, for general IT security management, accounting purposes or financial planning. We may also process your personal information to investigate violations of law or breaches of our own internal policies.

Legal purposes

We may also use your personal data where we consider it necessary for complying with laws and regulations, including collecting and disclosing employee personal information as required by law (e.g. for tax, health and safety, anti-discrimination laws), under judicial authorisation, or to exercise or defend our legal rights.

Legal basis for processing personal data

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the way we collect it. We will normally collect personal data from you only where we need it to perform a contract with you (i.e. to manage the employer/employee relationship), where we have your freely given consent to do so, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and only where this interest is not overridden by your own interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.  In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

Any processing based on consent will be made clear to you at the time of collection or use – consent can be withdrawn at any time by contacting Cyril MacPhee.

Who we share your personal data with

We take care to allow access to personal data only to those who require such access to perform their tasks and duties, and to third parties who have a legitimate purpose for accessing it. Whenever we permit a third party to access personal information, we will implement appropriate measures to ensure the data is used in a manner consistent with this notice and that the security and confidentiality of the data is maintained.

Transfers to third-party service providers

In addition, we make certain personal data available to third parties who provide services to us. We do so on a "need to know basis" and in accordance with applicable data protection and data privacy laws.

For example, some personal data will be available to our employee benefit plans service providers and third-party companies who provide us with employment law advice, health and safety support, payroll support services, expenses, tax and travel management services.   

Transfers to other third parties

We may also disclose personal data to third parties on other lawful grounds, including:

·         To comply with our legal obligations, including where necessary to abide by law, regulation or contract, or to respond to a court order, administrative or judicial process

·         In response to lawful requests by public authorities (including for national security or law enforcement purposes)

·         As necessary to establish, exercise or defend against potential, threatened or actual litigation

·         Where necessary to protect the vital interests of our employees or another person

·         In connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of all or part of our business; or

·         With your freely given and explicit consent


Data retention

Personal data will be stored in accordance with applicable laws and kept for as long as needed to carry out the purposes described in this notice or as otherwise required by law. Generally, this means your personal information will be retained until the end or your employment, employment application, or work relationship with us plus a reasonable period of time thereafter to respond to employment or work-related inquiries or to deal with any legal matters (e.g. judicial or disciplinary actions), document the proper termination of your employment or work relationship (e.g. to tax authorities), or to provide you with ongoing pensions or other benefits.
