  • Personal data relating to your personal health (if requested by our client);

As advised the main reason for using your personal data is purely for the simple fact that we will be helping you to find permanent or temporary employment, employment pre-screening and to process your salary when you are paid via the agency. The more information we have about you, your skillset and ambitions, the more bespoke we can make our services however the personal data we process on your behalf is only ever processed with your consent.

How long do we keep your data for?

If we have not had meaningful contact with you for a period of five years, we will either ask you to re-consent holding your data or delete your personal data from our systems unless we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to local authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation).

When we refer to "meaningful contact", we mean, for example, communication between us (either verbal or written), or where you are actively engaging with us and using our services. We will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV, communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication or click through from any of our marketing communications. Your receipt, opening or reading of an email or other digital message from us will not count as meaningful contact – this will only occur in cases where you click-through or reply directly.

One of the GDPR's main objectives is to protect and clarify your rights with regards to data privacy. This means that you retain various rights in respect of your data, even once you have given it to us. These are described in more detail below. 

To get in touch about these rights, please . We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within one month (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled). Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise. 

Right of access: you may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time. We may ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless your request is "manifestly vexatious, unfounded or excessive”. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will always tell you the reasons for doing so. 

Right to rectification: you have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.

What are my rights?

You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following:

The data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed them;

  • Where previously given, you have withdrawn your consent to us processing your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue processing;
  • The data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);
    It is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or
  • If we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.
  • We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons:
  • To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • To comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;
  • For public health reasons in the public interest;
  • For archival, research or statistical purposes; or
  • To exercise or defend a legal claim. 

When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably practicable steps to delete the relevant data. 

  • Right to restrict processing: you have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or the protection of the rights of another individual.
  • The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:
  • Where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;
  • Where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;
  • Where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and
  • Where we have no further need to process your personal data, but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
  • If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.
  • Right of data portability: if you wish, you have the right to receive and transfer your personal data between data controllers where technically feasible. This right of data portability applies to: (i) personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention); (ii) personal data provided by you; and (iii) personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.
  • Right to object to processing: this right enables you to object to us processing your personal data where we do so for one of the following four reasons: (i) our legitimate interests; (ii) to enable us to perform a task in the public interest or exercise official authority; (iii) to send you direct marketing materials; and (iv) for scientific, historical, research, or statistical purposes.
  • The "legitimate interests" and "direct marketing" categories above are the ones most likely to apply to our website users, candidates, clients and suppliers. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless:
  • We can show that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests; or
  • We are processing your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.
  • If your objection relates to direct marketing, we must act on your objection by ceasing this activity.
  • Right not to be to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing: we do not base any decisions solely on automated processing of your personal data, but if we did you would have the right to restrict our use of your data for this purpose.
  • You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local authority. Details of how to contact them can be found https://dataci.org/
  • If registered for newsletters or job alerts, you may ask to unsubscribe from job alerts at any time.

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during the period for which we hold your data.
