Disclosure of your information inside and outside of the EEA 

We will share your personal information with: 

Selected third parties including: 

  • clients for the purpose of introducing candidates to them ; 
  • clients for the purpose of arranging interviews and engagements; 
  • clients, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance and compliance obligations of any contract we enter into with them or you; 
  • subcontractors including digital marketing specialists and payment providers 
  • analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site; 
  • credit reference agencies, our insurance broker, compliance partners and other sub-contractors for the purpose of assessing your suitability for a role where this is a condition of us entering into a contract with you. 

We will disclose your personal information to third parties: 

  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. 
  • If Concept Resourcing or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets. 
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Concept Resourcing, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.] 

The lawful basis for the third party processing will include: 

  • Their own legitimate business interests in processing your personal data, in most cases to fulfil their internal resourcing needs; 
  • satisfaction of their contractual obligations to us as our data processor; 
  • for the purpose of a contract in place or in contemplation; 
  • to fulfil their legal obligations. 

Where we store and process your personal data   

The data that we collect from you may/will be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (”EEA”). It may be transferred to third parties outside of the EEA for the purpose of our recruitment services. It may/will also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, our recruitment services and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice. In the event that we do need to make transfers to countries outside the EEA, we will ensure the appropriate safeguards are in place. 

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. 

Retention of your data 

We understand our legal duty to retain accurate data and only retain personal data for as long as we need it for our legitimate business interests and that you are happy for us to do so.  Accordingly, we have a data retention notice. 

We do the following to try to ensure our data is accurate: 

Prior to making an introduction we check that we have accurate information about you 

We keep in touch with you so you can let us know of changes to your personal data. 

We may archive part or all of your personal data or retain it on our financial systems only, deleting all or part of it from our main Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. We may anonymise parts of your data, particularly following a request for suppression or deletion of your data. 

For your information, anonymised data is created by taking identifying fields within a database and replacing them with artificial identifiers. 

Retention notice 

We will delete your personal data from our systems if we have not had any meaningful contact with you (or, where appropriate, the company you are working for or with) for six years (or for such longer period as we believe in good faith that the law or relevant regulators require us to preserve your data).  

By “meaningful contact”, we mean, for example, communication between us (either verbal or written), or where you are actively engaging with our online services. If you are a Candidate we will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV onto our website. Or if you communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication or click through from any of our recruitment related communications. 

Please note that we may need to continue to process your personal information in certain circumstances for specified periods up to seven years. This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring you have the right to work in the UK; allowing us to comply with HMRC reporting requirements regarding payroll information; or to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.  

Your rights   

For the purpose of providing you our full recruitment services we may occasionally send email communication such as specific job opportunities or relevant industry recruitment trends. You can manage your email communication preferences by contacting a Concept consultant, completing relevant boxes on our registration form, or updating your preferences on our website. 

To clarify, contacting you about specific job opportunities or industry recruitment trends is not marketing because we are not advertising or marketing our services. 

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner suppliers. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites. 

The GDPR provides you with the following rights. To: 

  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. 
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing. 
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. 
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it. 
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party in certain formats, if practicable. 
  • Make a complaint to a supervisory body which in the United Kingdom is the Information Commissioner’s Office. The ICO can be contacted through this link:
