How we use your personal information
Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have proper reason to do so. We must have one or more of these reasons:
- To fulfil a contract we have with you;
- When it is our legal duty;
- When it is in our legitimate interest; or
- When you consent to it.
In most cases, we will be using your personal information to fulfil a contract we have with you, in that you have asked for our help in finding employment and to keep you up-to-date with career opportunities. We may also seek your consent to using and storing your personal information if you complete our Registration Form. Sometimes, we may have a legitimate interest to use your personal information if we have a business or commercial reason to do so. We will have a legitimate interest to use your personal information in the following situations:
- To keep our records up to date and to work out whether any of our live vacancies may be suitable for you and to tell you about them.
- To seek your consent when we need it to contact you.
- Ensuring that we comply with regulations that apply to us.
If you have applied for a position with us, we will use your personal information to review and process your job application.
Who we share your personal information with
As part of the service we will provide to you, we will need to share your personal information with other organisations, namely our clients. We will let you know who we will be passing your information to before anything is sent. We will also share your personal information with certain third party agents/suppliers or contractors, bound by obligations of confidentiality, in connection with the processing of your personal information. This will, in most cases, be limited to IT and database service providers.
Sending data outside of the EEA
We will only send your data outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) in order to follow your instructions or to comply with a legal duty. If we do transfer your personal information outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA.
How long we keep your personal information
We will keep your information for so long as you are an active candidate of Carriera. As an active candidate we will either be trying to find suitable employment for you or we will have successfully placed you with one of our clients. After you stop being an active candidate, we may keep your data for up to 6 years in order to satisfy any legal or contractual obligations that apply to us.
If we do not successfully place you with one of our clients, we may continue to store your personal information so that we can tell you about any other vacancies that may be suitable for you.
