In some circumstances we may obtain your information from third parties such as LinkedIn and CV Library or other similar platforms, from other companies within our group if you use websites they operate or services they provide, or from our business partners where you have specifically agreed for them to share your data with us.

Sometimes we may anonymise data for further processing. The process of anonymising ensures that you are no longer identifiable from those data meaning that it is no longer personal data for the purposes of applicable data protection legislation.

Where we have collected information about your visit to our website, we process your data to:
Where we receive information about you from our business partners, we will use that information to provide you with the information, products and services that you have told our business partners you are interested in receiving from us, such as emails regarding job opportunities and news available through our website.
We will typically process your personal data based on our legitimate interests or those of a third party in providing and perfecting the services we offer, and in supporting the effective operation and administration of our business. We will only rely on this basis where we are confident that our interests are not outweighed by the interests of your fundamental rights and freedoms, meaning that your rights are always considered and where appropriate will be prioritised over our own.
In some circumstances we may process your personal data where necessary to perform a contract we have in place with you, or where you have requested us to do so prior to entering into a contract with us. There may also be instances where we have to process your data in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
Sometimes we may also process your data on the basis of your consent. We will only rely on your consent where we are confident that it is unambiguous, informed, freely given and specific to the processing activities that are to be undertaken. Where you have provided your consent you can withdraw it at any time by contacting us using one of the methods described above. However, where you do withdraw consent this would not affect the lawfulness of processing that occurred beforehand but it could prevent us from being able to perform action(s) that you have requested.
You don't have to provide us with your information. However, if you choose not to provide us with data that we need perform a certain action then we will not be able to perform that action. For example, this could prevent us from responding to your enquiry or prevent you from participating in our services in the manner ordinarily envisaged.
We will share your information with the other members of our group of companies, our partner agencies and prospective employers who will also act as controllers of your data, including specifically:
Outside of our group of companies and partner network we will share your information with carefully selected third parties used to supply or perform services which are necessary to our operations. Examples of this include providers of software that we incorporate in our IT infrastructure for business management purposes and service providers engaged in hosting our databases, as well as specialist service providers that are engaged in relation to the processing of payments. However, we will only share your information with such third parties to the extent necessary for them to provide us with the services we need.
We may also share your information with third parties where:
The information we collect about you may be transferred to and stored outside the European Economic Area (EEA), in particular the United States of America. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us, another of our group companies or for one of our suppliers.
Whenever we transfer your data, store it or otherwise allow it to be processed outside of the EEA we only do so in a manner compliant with the requirements of applicable data protection laws, including by ensuring that the recipient has the benefit of an adequacy decision of the European Commission (EC) or by otherwise ensuring that the transfer is subject to adequate safeguards such as the incorporation of EC approved Standard Contractual Clauses.
For more information with respect to how appropriate protections are afforded to international data transfers please contact us using one of the methods described above.
All information which you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to guard against the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data, including by ensuring that employees and third parties only have access to your data where necessary to achieve the purpose(s) of processing.
However, unfortunately we do not have absolute control over all aspects of security. In particular, where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and we therefore ask you not to share a password with anyone.
In addition, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
We will only retain your data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose(s) for which we collected it although may retain your data for a longer period where we have a legal or regulatory obligation to do so. In determining the appropriate retention period we shall have regard to the amount, nature and sensitivity of the data in question, in addition to the purpose(s) of processing and the potential risks of continued storage.
We will not conduct any automated decision making in relation to the data that are provided to us.
