Where we store and process your personal data

The data that we collect from you may or will be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may be transferred to third parties outside of the EEA for the purpose of our recruitment services. It may or will also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, our recruitment services and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storage, or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. Unfortunately, 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 site; 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 unauthorized access.

Retention of your data

We understand our legal obligation to retain accurate data and only keep personal data for as long as we need it for our legitimate business interests and as long as you consent to it. Therefore, we maintain a data retention policy and conduct regular data reviews to delete information that no longer serves our legitimate business interests.

To ensure the accuracy of our data, we take the following steps:

  • Our website allows you to manage your data and review the information we have about you for accuracy.
  • Before initiating any interactions, we verify that we have correct information about you.
  • We maintain communication with you so you can update us on any changes to your personal data.

We organize our data to retain different types of information for different periods. Factors we consider when deciding whether to keep your personal data include:

  • The type of personal data.
  • Its perceived accuracy.
  • Our legal obligations.
  • Whether an interview or placement has been arranged.
  • Our recruitment expertise and industry knowledge, including by country, sector, and job role.

We may store part or all of your personal data in archives or on our financial systems, removing some or all of it from our primary Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) system.

Our current data retention policy is available upon request.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes, and we will collect express consent from you if legally required prior to using your personal data for marketing purposes.

You can exercise your right to accept or prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at or

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates. 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.




Your local data protection legislation provides you with the following rights

  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request the erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party in certain formats, if practicable.
  • Make a complaint to a supervisory body which in the United Kingdom is the Information Commissioner’s Office. The ICO can be contacted through this link:

Addendum for the United States

While our general Privacy Policy addresses the majority of compliance with the California Consumers Privacy Act (CCPA), there are a few changes that we have implemented to ensure compliance. And whilst the CCPA relates to California only, we have adopted this approach for the whole of the United States.

As explained in the Privacy Policy, We only collect data that You have given to us, consented to or that We have a legal basis to collect.

In California the legal basis to collect data is as follows:

(1) Auditing related to a current interaction with the consumer and concurrent transactions, including, but not limited to, counting ad impressions to unique visitors, verifying positioning and quality of ad impressions, and auditing compliance with this specification and other standards.
(2) Detecting security incidents, protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and prosecuting those responsible for that activity.
(3) Debugging to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
(4) Short-term, transient use, provided that the personal information is not disclosed to another third party and is not used to build a profile about a consumer or otherwise alter an individual consumer’s experience outside the current interaction, including, but not limited to, the contextual customization of ads shown as part of the same interaction.
(5) Performing services on behalf of Us or our service provider, including maintaining or servicing accounts, providing customer service, processing or fulfilling orders and transactions, verifying customer information, processing payments, providing financing, providing advertising or marketing services, providing analytic services, or providing similar services on behalf of Us or our service provider.
(6) Undertaking internal research for technological development and demonstration.
(7) Undertaking activities to verify or maintain the quality or safety of a service or device that is owned, manufactured, manufactured for, or controlled by Us, and to improve, upgrade, or enhance the service or device that is owned, manufactured, manufactured for, or controlled by Us.

We identify the types of information collected in the last 12 months, the sources of the information, the purpose of the information, and how the data is shared and why. We do not sell any personal data to third parties.

This specific privacy policy is reviewed and updated every 12 months to ensure it accurately addresses the CCPA as well as any changes within our organization.

What is considered Your personal data?

While We have identified the information that We may collect form you in the Privacy Policy, We wanted to specifically highlight to You all information which may be considered your personal data:

• Personal identifiers, including name, address, email, social security number, driver’s license number and passport number.
• Biometric information.
• Geolocation data.
• Internet browsing history.
• Professional and employment-related information.
• Inferences from personal information to create a profile.

While the above is all considered personal data, any of the above that is publicly available is not considered personal data.

Consumer Rights under the CCPA

• Know what personal information is being collected about You and for it to be deleted.
• Know whether Your personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
• Say no to the sale of personal information.
• Access Your personal information.
• Equal service and price, even if You exercise your privacy right

At any time, you may request the right to view or exercise any of the above rights pertaining to any personal data that We may hold for You. We may require a verifiable proof of identity prior to allowing access to any records.
