We are committed to safeguarding your privacy; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
(1) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us (including your name, email address, work history, username, password, vacancies applied for and any additional contact details and preferences that you may provide in order to help us progress your application);
(b) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters (including your email address);
(c) any other information that you choose to send to us including your CV and any other documents to support your application.
This information is collected for the purpose of legitimate interest, and/or consent of an individual for one or more specific purposes. Alternatively, processing may be necessary for the performance of a contract or a legal obligation.
In addition, we may disclose information about you:
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk); and
(3) International data transfers
Should information which you provide require transfer to countries outside of the European Economic Areas (EEA) all appropriate technical and legal safeguards will be put in place to ensure that you are afforded the same level of protection as within the EEA.
If you subscribe to our latest jobs emails, this is handled by a third party company called Mailchimp. This company is based in the US so the information you provide for this subscription (your name, email address and subscription preferences) will be stored on their servers in the US. Because Mailchimp works with many companies in the EU they have modified their policies in order to be compliant with GDPR regulations. We have signed a data processing agreement with them and since MailChimp certifies to the Privacy Shield framework they can lawfully receive EU data.
(4) Security of your personal data & data breaches
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password and firewall-protected) servers within the European Economic Areas (EEA).
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password.
We have procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
