Mackenzie Brown Recruitment privacy notice
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a new regulation replacing the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC)
The regulation unifies data protection legislation across EU member states.
This Data Protection Policy used by Mackenzie Brown Recruitment Ltd. has been developed to consolidate our ongoing commitment in delivering a work finding service operating to the highest standards, levels of transparency and integrity, dealing with our service users; candidates and clients.
This policy notice outlines:
How Mackenzie Brown Recruitment Ltd will collect, store and use information about individuals and businesses. It will be continuously evaluated; assessed against current and new technology, business practice and changing needs/ requirements of service users; candidates and clients.
We are a recruitment business which provides job/career finding services to clients and candidates. Mackenzie Brown Recruitment Ltd must process personal data (including sensitive personal data) so that it can provide these services. We act as the Data Controller.
Our service users; candidates and clients may give personal details to Mackenzie Brown Recruitment Ltd. directly e.g. on an application or registration or via our website sending your CV/Resume, or we could collect details from another source e.g. a jobs board, social media. We must have legal grounding for processing your personal information/data. Therefore, for the purposes of providing career/work finding services or information relating to roles relevant to candidates, we will only use your personal data in line with the terms of the ensuing statement; the GDPR became law on 25th May 2018
Why do we collect your personal information?
We are retained by recruitment businesses to identify and place individuals into new employment opportunities. We have identified you as an individual that could be of interest to our clients and so we collect your data to give you the best possible opportunity in supporting your efforts to find a job/enhance your career.
We take your privacy very seriously and, in order for us to keep you informed about relevant opportunities, we request to hold your personal data. If you do not allow us to do this, we will be legally obliged to remove you from our database and can no longer put you forward for such opportunities.
What information do we collect?
Typically, we collect your current and previous employers, and details of your work, skills and experiences, education and qualifications.
We will then store pertinent details of our relationship which could include elements such as records of interviews, opportunities we have put you forward for, information you have provided to us such as a CV/resume and copies of correspondence.
We may store further information where we have placed you or you are in employed by us which could include start and end dates, pay history, umbrella company details and bank details.
It is unlikely we will require or process any data which would be categorised as Special under the relevant data protection legislation but should we need to do so we would contact you and get your explicit consent to do so.
What will we do with your personal information?
We will hold your personal data:
• To be able to place you to the most suitable position according to your background and experience.
• We may use your personal information to contact you to discuss the opportunity.
• We may use your data for the fulfilment and ongoing management of a contract where we have placed or hired you.
• We may also use your data for the purpose of identification
• To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations
Who will we share your personal information with?
We will only make your personal information visible to the organisations we are working with when you are put forward for an opportunity or where required for the fulfilment and ongoing management of a contract where we have placed or hired you.
We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:
• if we use 3rd parties for running our business processes. An example of this might be that we have our emails or our database hosted in the cloud. Whilst these cloud providers would not typically have direct access to your information, storage is considered processing under the relevant data protection legislation. Similarly, as an example, if we have employed you directly we would need to send your data as required by law to local tax authorities;
• if we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
