Storage of personal data, security measures, and duration of storage


At About Recruitment, we place huge emphasis on confidentiality and data privacy. We appreciate the trust you place in us when sharing your personal data. The security of that data is very important to us.

In order to ensure no unauthorised access or disclosure, we have designed and implemented appropriate physical, electronic and managerial processes and procedures specifically to safeguard and secure your personal data. We store all personal data in our Customer Relationship Management System, which can only be accessed by our authorised personnel. This ensures for you that your personal data is securely stored.

We will keep your personal data for no longer than we believe is necessary, for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us to assist in providing you with recruitment services. We commit that we will dispose of your personal data at the end of this period, or if you so request, you can ask us to delete your personal data at any time. We normally expect to retain personal data on our database until you retire from remunerated activities, which may include INED roles. This should enable us to provide you with high quality recruitment services, for as long as you are in need of such services.

In the unlikely event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or most of the assets of About Recruitment, we may assign your data to a third party provided that the third party agrees to observe the terms of this (our) Privacy Policy. You will be notified of the circumstance of any such transfer, and you will be provided with the opportunity to opt-out.

What do we do with your data?

We collect this data so that we can provide you with a high quality service. To illustrate this, we may use your data as follows:

  • We may market current and upcoming vacancies, and other recruitment services to you

  • We may use this information to help you apply for vacancies

  • We may provide you with relevant valuable information through our newsletters and brochures

  • We may inform you of competitions we are holding

We may provide your personal information to third parties, e.g. prospective employers. However, we will only do this after having explicitly received your permission in relation to what and to whom the information can be provided. This is consistent with the Code of Conduct of our professional body, the National Recruitment Federation. The only exception to this is if we are required by law to release the information.

If you are applying for vacancies outside of the EEA, we may need to transfer your data outside the EEA. However, we will, as explained above, only do so with your express permission.

Your rights as a data subject

As a person whose personal information we hold, you have clearly defined rights. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please email, or send us a letter at the address in the Get in Contact section below. For your own protection, before we process your request, we will ask you to provide a valid form of identification for verification purposes. The following describes your rights:

The right to be informed

We are obliged to provide you with clear and transparent information about how we process your personal data. We comply with this through this (our) Privacy Policy and any related communications we send you.

The right of access

You may request a copy of the personal data we hold about you. We will provide this free of charge. We will need to verify your identity in advance and, if relevant, the authority of any third-party requestor. We will provide access to the personal data we hold about you, including information as follows:

  • Why we process your personal data

  • The categories of personal data we process

  • Who we have disclosed your personal data to (although as stated, we only do this with your express advance permission in the first instance, unless required by law to do otherwise)

  • How long we keep your personal information

  • Where we have collected your personal data from a third party, the source of that data

Where they may be very unusual circumstances which mean we can refuse to provide the information, we will explain these to you. If requests are frivolous or vexatious, we do reserve the right to refuse them. We will inform you in the very unlikely event that answering a particular request requires significant time or causes us material expense (which you may have to meet).

The right to rectification

If you believe we hold inaccurate or incomplete information about you, we will of course amend this on your instruction.

The right to erasure

You can request us to delete your information, and we will do so, unless there is an overriding legal requirement for us to retain it.

The right to restrict processing

You may ask us to stop processing your personal data, for example pending rectification of your data. Therefore, we will still hold your data. However we will not process it further pending rectification.

Third-party Links

Our website may provide links to other third-party websites of interest. These websites are clearly outside of our control, and therefore are not covered by this (our) Privacy Policy. As a result, we cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites, or products, services, and goods that may referenced via links from our website.

We encourage you therefore as a general rule to review the Privacy Policies on all websites you visit.
