If you fail to provide personal information

Automated decision-making


You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.


Data security


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.


We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.


Data retention


How long will you use my information for?


We will retain your personal information for a period of up to 10 years after we have initially made contact with you. . We retain your personal information for that period so that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against clients or candidates on prohibited grounds. We will also retain information for this period to ensure that, if you return to us for services, we have a record of your instructions and can process our work with you on a more effective basis. After this period, we will securely destroy your personal information.



If we wish to retain your personal information on file, on the basis that a further opportunity may arise in future and we may wish to consider you for that, we will write to you separately, seeking your explicit consent to retain your personal information for a period on that basis. This consent will normally be sought in the form of correspondence with you.
