What rights do you have in relation to the data we hold on you?
By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your Personal Data. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country.
|What does this mean?
|The right to be informed
|You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Policy.
|The right of access
This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection law.
|The right to rectification
|You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
|The right to erasure
|This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
|The right to restrict processing
|You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
|The right to data portability
|You have rights to obtain and reuse your Personal Data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
|The right to object to processing
|You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).
|The right to lodge a complaint
|You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your Personal Data with your national data protection regulator.
|The right to withdraw consent
|If you have given your consent to anything we do with your Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your Personal Data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your Personal Data for marketing purposes.
We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:

Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We will respond within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we’ll come back to you and let you know.
We may contact you by phone, email or social media. If you prefer a particular contact means of contact, please let us know.
If, and to the extent that, you are a Candidate, we rely on you to provide us with complete and accurate Personal Data about you, so that we can provide appropriate services to you and to our Clients.
