The shortest Data Protection Policy in the world?

shortestYoungest son has been looking for work and was interviewed for some warehouse job with a big name in retail and had this thrust under his nose while being interviewed. Luckily the modern scourge of camera phone proved very useful at this point and he showed me this image when he returned home. Is it a Policy? Who is the data controller? Why do applicants have to sign to agree that their application form goes to a prospective employer? Why do they need medical details?  The questions go on and on.  Contradiction in the final paragraph.  And they’ve squeezed all this into just over 50 words. Is it possible to write a Data Protection Policy that will fit into 140 characters? Who writes this stuff?
