Our Legitimate Business Interests
Our legitimate interests in collecting and retaining your personal data is described below:
As a recruitment business and recruitment agency we introduce candidates to clients for permanent employment, temporary worker placements or independent professional contracts. The exchange of personal data of our candidates and our client contacts is a fundamental, essential part of this process.
In order to support our candidates’ career aspirations and our clients’ resourcing needs we require a database of candidate and client personal data containing historical information as well as current resourcing requirements.
To maintain, expand and develop our business we need to record the personal data of prospective candidates and client contacts.
Where your information is stored
Your personal information is stored on our ATS (Applicant Tracking System) Bullhorn for the purpose of our recruitment services. Should you request to receive our marketing communications, your information will be stored on Hubspot, which is used for our email marketing function. Any enquiries (applications, CV submissions or recruitment enquiries) made through the website are stored on our CMS.
How we use this
- Your data can be accessed by all cranberry panda employees, either for recruitment or marketing purposes. From a candidate perspective, we will not share your details without your explicit permission – we will never send candidate information to our clients until the individual agrees they would like to be represented for a specific live job. For clients, we will not share any contact details unless approved by the individual client contact.
- For marketing communications, we will only contact you with job updates if you have subscribed and will not share your email information with any third parties.
Requesting access to your data
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 (see below).
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.
