Colloco Search Ltd (” We”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Whether you are a candidate, client or partner we will always respect you and your personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC). The Regulation aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate. We welcome this piece of legislation as it’s all about understanding you and putting you first, which is what we do every single day.
Even though the UK has expressed its intention to leave the EU in March 2019, the GDPR will be applicable in the UK from 25th May 2018. The Government intends for the GDPR to continue in UK law post-Brexit and has also introduced a Data Protection Bill to replace the current Data Protection Act in due course.
Your new rights under the GDPR are set out in this notice apply from 25th May 2018.
For the purposes of data protection legislation in force from time to time, the data controller is Colloco Search Ltd of Davidson House, Forbury Square, Reading, RG1 3EU
We are a specialist recruitment agency (as defined in the Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003). Given the nature of what we do on behalf of our candidates and clients we collect personal data of the following stakeholder groups to ensure we can deliver our services:
We collect the information that you give us by filling in forms on our site https://www.Collocosearch .com/ (our site) or by communicating with us by phone, video calls, e-mail, personal meetings or otherwise. It includes information you provide when you register to use our site, to enter our database, subscribe to our services, attend our events, enter a promotion or survey.
This includes, but is not limited to:
compliance documentation and references verifying your qualifications and experience and your right to work in the relevant country, identification documents, curriculum vitae and photograph, emergency information, links to your professional profiles available in the public domain e.g. LinkedIn, Twitter, business Facebook or corporate website.
We do, on occasions, mail-out carefully selected job opportunities, market information, job search tips, recruitment commentary and a few bits of information on the charity events we undertake. If you wish to receive these updates and don’t currently, please let us know. Likewise, if you no longer wish to receive these updates, please let us know and we will make sure that you don’t.
CV’s are what we do. They are obviously quite important to us and should you wish us to consider you for a new job, we’ll need you to send us yours. That CV will usually contain most of the personal information we’ve mentioned above.
If we are in possession of your CV, rest assured, it will be handled securely and sensitively. All the above promises and conditions will be upheld, and we will hold and use your personal information, for our legitimate business purposes only including:
Your CV, and any information therein, will never be sent to anyone without your knowledge and agreement.
If your CV is presented to a client, whether in person, via email, you’ll know about it, know about the role, the business, the contact in the business and even then, he/she will be subject to confidentiality.
If we suggest sending your CV outside of a formal shortlist, for whatever reason, we will gain your explicit permission before doing so. Even then, if we send your CV in either of the above circumstances (and there is no other circumstance we would send your CV), we will remove ALL your personal information except your name.
