What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an update to the regulation in the EU law on data protection and privacy coming into effect on May 25th, 2018. GDPR aims to give you more control as a customer over your personal information. The new law places the responsibility on us, to collect, use and keep your data in the safest way possible.


What personal data do we collect?

The personal data we collect from you includes emails, phone numbers, addresses, names etc. and any other data we deem completely necessary to provide you with quality staff or job offers. We only keep what we need, and your information will only be retained for as long as we are working with you for recruitment and employment purposes.


What do we use your personal information for?

We use your personal data for variety of reasons for recruitment and employment services, from updating you on job vacancies and service improvements to presenting your CVs to hiring companies. Our six uses of your personal data are outlined below.
