Where permitted by law, we may also collect information relating to your health (for example, disability information for reasonable work adjustment purposes), diversity information, including race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation and religion (for equal opportunity monitoring purposes) as well as details of any unspent criminal convictions where required by a client or by us if you apply for a role with us. If you use our website, click on links in emails we send to you, open or forward them, or sign up to receive job alerts or other content from us, we also collect personal data from those interactions.
We also obtain personal data about you from third parties, including:
We collect personal data about you, including your name and contact details and professional biographical details obtained from publicly available sources such as LinkedIn and social media sites, so that we can contact you if we think you may be interested in our work finding services at a future date. We may also obtain your personal data through another candidate or an employer who recommends you as a contact.
We collect your contact details and data relating to your function or position to establish commercial relationships with your company.
We collect personal data such as your name, job title and contact details. We also process personal data about what communications we have had with you, including whether you have opened or forwarded any emails, newsletters or other content we have sent to you. We also process feedback that you provide about our candidates.
If you provide information to us about a candidate (for example, if you confirm a candidate has worked with you or if you provide a reference), then we will obtain your details from the candidate and we will keep a record of the personal data that you provide to us about that candidate.
We process personal data about you from public domain sources such as LinkedIn and social networking sites or because you were a delegate at one of our events or at an event where the event organiser is permitted to share delegate details with us.
We typically collect your name and contact details as a business contact for your organisation.

Under the GDPR, we rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal data:
(a) Performing a contract - where, in order to perform our obligations under a contract with you or to take steps at your request to enter into a contract with us, it is necessary for us to process your personal data.
(b) Compliance with a legal obligation - where we need to process your personal data to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.
(c) Our legitimate interests or those of a third party - including:
(d) Consent In some circumstances, we will ask for your consent to process your personal data in a way. For example, if you create a user profile or register for our job alerts or other content. To the extent that we are processing your personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please contact us, if you would like to withdraw your consent.
You have the right to object to the use of automated decision making and to request human intervention. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us.
In certain circumstances we will share your personal data with other companies. The UK recognises that after Brexit, countries in the EEA provide adequate protection for personal data.
If you are a candidate, we share your personal data with clients who have vacancies for jobs which you are interested in.
We also share your personal data and, where necessary, special category data with third party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf, such as:
We contractually require minimum standards of confidentiality and data protection from our third party service providers. If we need to send personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that adequate safeguards are in place.
We will keep your personal data for as long as we need to in order to fulfil the purpose we collected it for, which may be an ongoing purpose. For example, if you’re a candidate, we will retain your personal data for the duration of our business relationship with you and beyond, as we often support candidates with job placements over many years and potentially throughout their careers.
We keep some personal data for longer than others. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider factors such as the purposes for which we process your personal data, including any legal, regulatory, accounting and reporting obligations, the nature and amount of personal data that we hold about you, and the potential risk of harm to you from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data.
Where we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will do so until you ask us to stop, and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your request). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data indefinitely, so that we can respect your request.
You have several rights under UK and EU data protection laws. These rights include the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data, to correct, delete or restrict processing of your personal data; to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this data to another controller.
In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process your personal data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).
These rights may be limited, for example, if complying with your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests for keeping. We will inform you of any relevant exemptions we are relying on when we respond to your request.
To exercise your rights, or to withdraw your consent to processing, or to unsubscribe from receiving marketing communications from us, you can:

If you have unresolved concerns, and you live or work in the UK or believe that a personal data breach happened in the UK, you have the right to complain to the UK Information Commissioner’s Office who can be contacted through their website https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
