Individuals (clients and candidates) and other third parties necessary for the provision of our recruitment services, legal and professional advisors, insures, any regulatory authority pursuant to a request for information of any legal obligation that applies to us
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information by either saving it on a secure database with restricted access or erasing it after we no longer need it.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded onto your computer when you visit a website, which enables the website to tailor its offerings to your preferences when you visit it.

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties with whom we have mutually agreed to share your details, so long as both parties agree to keep the information in line with GDPR legislation.
How long do we hold personal data?
It is our policy to only store your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary for us to comply with our legal obligation and for our legitimate business interests.
It is our policy to hold personal data on our system for 7 years. After 7 years without contact we review the data and either erase it or reconfirm reasons for holding it. However this does not apply if we have been in recent contact.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and it is important that you know your rights within that context, which include rights to:
- Request a copy of the personal data that we hold
- Be informed of how your data is being processed
- Erasure or removal from our database
- Request that we restrict processing of your data in certain circumstances
- Request that inaccurate or incomplete data is rectified
- Make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office and request that contact and data by us to you is stopped (however if you are dissatisfied about any aspect of the way in which your data is processed you may, in the first instance refer the matter to Saffron Prentice – firstname.lastname@example.org. This does not affect your right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office).
