How We Collect Personal Data

We collect your personal data in three primary ways:

  2. Personal data we receive from other sources; and
  3. Personal data we collect automatically.

Personal Data Provided by You

Silven recruitment Ltd needs to know certain information about you to be able to provide a tailored service. This personal information enables us to provide you with the best opportunities and should improve your job search experience with us, by hiding jobs and services that are not relevant to you.

There are a number of ways you can share your personal information with us. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Entering your details on the Silven recruitment Ltd website as part of the registration process;
  • Leaving a hard copy of your CV at a Silven recruitment Ltd recruitment event, job fair or office;
  • Emailing your CV to a Silven recruitment Ltd consultant or being interviewed by them; or
  • Applying for jobs through a job aggregator, which then redirects you to the Silven recruitment Ltd website

Personal Data We Receive from Other Sources

In addition to personal data received directly from you Silven recruitment Ltd also receive personal data about Candidates from other sources. These may include personal data received in, but not limited to, the following situations:

  • Your referees may share personal information about you with us;
  • Our Clients may share personal information about you with us;
  • We may obtain personal information about you from searching for potential Candidates from third-party sources, such as LinkedIn and other job sites; and
  • If you “like” our page on Facebook or “follow” us on Twitter we will receive your personal information from those sites.

Personal Data We Collect Automatically

When accessing our website or you read or click on an email from us we may collect your data automatically or through you providing it to us.

How We Use Personal Data

We use the personal data we hold about you to provide and personalise the services we offer, enabling them to be more relevant and useful to you. We use it in three primary ways:

  1. Recruitment activities;
  2. Marketing activities; and
  3. To help us establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Recruitment Activities

Our main area of work is recruitment as such, and as a Candidate, your personal data is processed for the purposes of providing you with work-finding services. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Contacting you about job opportunities;
  • Assessing your suitability for those job opportunities;
  • Updating our databases;
  • Putting you forward for job opportunities (sending your information to Clients); and
  • Developing and managing our services and relationship with you.

Marketing Activities

We may, from time to time, send you information we think you may find interesting. We may wish to use your personal information for purposes including, but not limited to:

  • The development and marketing of other products and services;
  • Market our full range of recruitment services to you;
  • Send you details of reports, promotions, offers, networking and client events, and general information about the industry sectors which we think may be of interest to you; and
  • Display promotional excerpts from your details on Silven recruitment Ltd’s website(s) as a success story (only where we have obtained your express consent to do so).

We need your consent for some aspects of these activities which are not covered by our legitimate interests and, depending on the situation, we’ll ask for this via an opt-in.

If you have opted out from our marketing communications, either via the unsubscribe link in the footer of marketing emails or through your website profile, it is possible that your personal data may be recaptured from public sources in an unconnected marketing campaign. While we will endeavour to ensure this does not happen there may be instances, from time to time, where it does and would appreciate your understanding in these instances.

Our marketing is based on what we think will serve our Candidates best. We may use your data to show you Silven recruitment Ltd adverts and other content on other websites. If you do not want us to use your data in this way, please turn off the “Advertising Cookies” option, details of how to do so can be found in our Cookies Policy. Even with “Advertising Cookies” turned off it is still possible that you see a Silven recruitment Ltd advert, or other content, on other websites. In this case it won’t have been targeted at you personally, but rather at an anonymous audience.

To Help Us Establish, Exercise or Defend Legal Claims

In some cases, we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

How Long We Keep Your Data For (Retention)

We will keep your personal data for a period of three years after our last meaningful contact with you (or our last meaningful contact with the company or entity that supplies your services if they are provided via a third-party company or entity). Different laws may require us to keep your personal data for different periods of time, where a law requires we keep your personal data for a period in excess of three years your personal data will be kept for the period required by law.

“Meaningful contact” means, for example, written or verbal communication between us and you or where you are actively using our online services, including, but not limited to, uploading your updated CV to our website. We also consider communication from you regarding potential roles, either written or verbal, or clicking through from, or replying to, any of our marketing emails as meaningful contact.

Who We Share Your Personal Data With

Where appropriate, and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we may share your personal data with the following categories of people:

  • Any of our group companies;
  • Individuals and organisations who hold information related to your reference or application to work with us, such as current, past or prospective employers, educators and examining bodies and employment and recruitment agencies;
  • Tax, audit, or other authorities, we believe in good faith that the low or other regulation requires us to share this data (for example, because of a request by a tax authority or in connection with any anticipated litigation);
  • Third-party service providers who perform functions on our behalf (including external consultants, business associates and professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors and accountants, technical support functions and IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems);
  • Third-party outsourced IT and document storage providers where we have an appropriate pressing agreement (or similar protections) in place;
  • Marketing technology platforms and suppliers;
  • Potential employers and other recruitment agencies/organisations to increase your chances of finding employment;
  • Third-party partners, job boards and job aggregators where we consider this will improve the chances of finding you the right job;
  • MSP suppliers as part of our clients’ MSP programmes;
  • Third-parties we have retained to provide services such as reference, qualification and criminal conviction checks, to the extent that these checks are appropriate and in accordance with local laws; and
  • If Silven recruitment Ltd merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future (or is in meaningful discussions about such a possibility) we may share your personal data with the (prospective) new owners of the business or company.

Lawful Basis for Processing

Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that we process all personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.

Article 6(1)(f) states that Silven recruitment Ltd can process your data where “processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third-party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.”

In plainer language this is where Silven recruitment Ltd has a legitimate reason to process your data provided it is reasonable and does not go against what you would reasonable expect from us.

As a Candidate we believe it is reasonable to expect us to collect and user your personal information to provide recruitment services to you, to share your personal information with prospective employers and compare your skills against our current vacancies where you have either provided us with your information directly, posted your CV information on a job board or on professional networking sites. Once it looks like you may be offered a position with a prospective employer they may want to check any information you have provided or to confirm your qualifications, experience or references. The providing of this information to prospective employers is required to help you, and other Candidates, get the jobs you deserve and allows us to function as a profit-making recruitment business.

We think it’s reasonable to process your personal data to provide a tailored recruitment service, offering you, the Candidate, a more pleasant job search experience and ensuring you receive the most appropriate content for your job search.

In some cases, we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

While we don’t believe any of the above activities prejudice you in any way – they enable us to provide the service you have engaged us for – you have the right to object to us processing your data on this basis.

Your rights

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides the following rights for individuals:

      1. The right to be informed;
      2. The right of access;
      3. The right to rectification;
      4. The right to erasure (to be forgotten);
      5. The right to restrict processing;
      6. The right to data portability;
      7. The right to object;
      8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling; and
      9. The right to withdraw consent.

The Right to Be Informed  

Individuals have the right to be informed about the collection and use of their personal data in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible way that uses clear and plain language. This Privacy Notice serves to provide this information.

Where personal data is obtained from third-party sources we will endeavour to inform the individual of this privacy information in a timely manner and no later than one month after receiving the data.

The Right of Access

Under the GDPR, individuals have the right to obtain:

  • Confirmation that their data is being processed;
  • Access to their personal data; and
  • Other supplementary information.

This right of access has been provided to allow individuals to access their personal information, so they are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing.

To find out if we hold any of your personal information, and what data we hold, a Subject Access Request can be submitted.

If we do hold your personal information we will:

  • Provide a description of it;
  • Explain why we are holding it;
  • Explain who it could be disclosed to; and
  • Let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.

The Right to Rectification

Individuals have the right to request that any inaccurate personal data is rectified or completed if it is incomplete. Personal data is considered to be inaccurate if “it is incorrect or misleading as to a matter of fact”. This request can be made either verbally or in writing.

When a request for rectification is received we will take reasonable steps to confirm the identity of the individual making the request and to satisfy ourselves that the data provided is accurate and that rectification of the data is required. When considering the accuracy of the data you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data until its accuracy has been established. Details of this right can be found here.

When we are satisfied of the accuracy of the new data we will update it within our systems. If we have shared the inaccurate personal data with third-parties, we will notify them of the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

We will inform you of the outcome of your request within one month of receipt of your request. Where a request is complex, or a number of requests have been received from you, the time to respond may be extended by a further two months. If we will be extending the time period we have to respond to your request, we will inform you of this within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reasons for the extension.

We retain the right to refuse to comply with a request for rectification if the request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. Alternatively, we may request a “reasonable fee” to deal with requests considered to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive”.

Where we refuse to comply with the request we will, without undue delay and within once month of receipt of the request, inform the individual of:

  • The reasons why action is not being taken;
  • Their right to make a complaint to the ICO or another supervisory authority; and
  • Their right to seek to enforce this right through a judicial remedy.

This information will also be provided if we request a “reasonable fee” to comply with the request.

The Right to Erasure (To Be Forgotten)

Individuals have the right to request that their personal data is erased from our systems, this right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances. Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed it;
  • Where previously given, you have withdrawn your consent to us processing your data, and there is no other valid reason for us to continue processing;
  • The data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);
  • It is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or
  • If we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing.

The right to erasure does not apply if processing is necessary for one of the following reasons:

  • To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • To comply with a legal obligation;
  • For the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority;
  • For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research historical research or statistical purposes where erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of that processing; or
  • For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

When a request for erasure is received we will take reasonable steps to confirm the identity of the individual making the request. Once proof of identity has been obtained we will take all reasonably practicable steps to Delete the relevant data and inform other organisations of the erasure if the personal data has been disclosed to others.

We will inform you of the outcome of your request within one month of receipt of your request. Where a request is complex, or a number of requests have been received from you, the time to respond may be extended by a further two months. If we will be extending the time period we have to respond to your request, we will inform you of this within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reasons for the extension.

We retain the right to refuse to comply with a request for erasure if the request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. Alternatively, we may request a “reasonable fee” to deal with requests considered to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive”.

Where we refuse to comply with the request we will, without undue delay and within once month of receipt of the request, inform the individual of:

  • The reasons why action is not being taken;
  • Their right to make a complaint to the ICO or another supervisory authority; and
  • Their right to seek to enforce this right through a judicial remedy.

This infomation will also be provided if we request a “reasonable fee” to comply with the request.

The Right to Restrict Processing   

Individuals have the right to request that we restrict our processing of their personal information, this right is not absolute and only applies in certain circumstances. This means that we can continue to store your personal information but the ways in which we can use your information is limited. This is an alternative to requesting the erasure of your data.

You are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information where:

  • You content the accuracy of your personal information and we are verifying the accuracy of the data;
  • The data has been processed unlawfully (i.e. in a manner which does not comply with the GDPR);
  • Where we no longer need your personal information, but you need the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal information and we are considering whether our legitimate grounds override yours.

If we have shared your personal information with third-parties, we will notify them of the request to restrict processing unless this is “impossible or involves disproportionate effort”.

We will notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal information.

We will inform you of the outcome of your request within one month of receipt of your request. Where a request is complex, or a number of requests have been received from you, the time to respond may be extended by a further two months. If we will be extending the time period we have to respond to your request, we will inform you of this within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reasons for the extension.

We retain the right to refuse to comply with a request to restrict processing if the request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. Alternatively, we may request a “reasonable fee” to deal with requests considered to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive”.

Where we refuse to comply with the request we will, without undue delay and within once month of receipt of the request, inform the individual of:

  • The reasons why action is not being taken;
  • Their right to make a complaint to the ICO or another supervisory authority; and
  • Their right to seek to enforce this right through a judicial remedy.

This information will also be provided if we request a “reasonable fee” to comply with the request.

 The Right to Data Portability  

Individuals have the right to obtain and reuse the personal information for their own purposes across different services. In effect, this means you are able to transfer your personal information held by Silven Recruitment Ltd between Data Controllers. To enable this transfer, we will provide you with your information in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format that is password-protected so that you can transfer the data to another Data Controller. The personal information provided will be restricted to the personal information you have provided to us.

The right to data portability applies when:

  • Our lawful basis for processing your personal information is consent or for the performance of a contract; and
  • We are carrying out the processing by automated means (i.e. without any human intervention).

We will inform you of the outcome of your request within one month of receipt of your request. Where a request is complex, or a number of requests have been received from you, the time to respond may be extended by a further two months. If we will be extending the time period we have to respond to your request, we will inform you of this within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reasons for the extension.

We retain the right to refuse to comply with a request to restrict processing if the request is  “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. Alternatively, we may request a “reasonable fee” to deal with requests considered to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive”.

Where we refuse to comply with the request we will, without undue delay and within once month of receipt of the request, inform the individual of:

  • The reasons why action is not being taken;
  • Their right to make a complaint to the ICO or another supervisory authority; and
  • Their right to seek to enforce this right through a judicial remedy.

This information will also be provided if we request a “reasonable fee” to comply with the request.

The Right to Object

Individuals have the right to object to:

  • Processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling);
  • Direct marketing (including profiling); and
  • Processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.

To be able to exercise this right you must have “grounds relating to his or her particular situation”.

If your objection relates to us processing your personal information because we deem it necessary for our legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless:

  • We can show that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests; or
  • We are processing your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.

If your objection relates to direct marketing, we must act on your objection by ceasing this activity.

Rights in Relation to Automated Decision Making and Profiling

Individuals have additional rights with the fully automated decision making, including profiling with legal or similarly significant effects restricted. This restriction only applies to fully automated individual decision making where there is no human involvement.

This restriction is lifted if one of the following three conditions apply:

  • It is necessary for the entry into or performance of a contract;
  • It is authorised by Union or Member state law applicable to the controller; or
  • Based on the individual’s explicit consent.

The Right to Withdraw Consent   

Individuals have the right to withdraw previously given consent at any time, for example where consent has been given for direct marketing.

When consent is withdrawn we will cease to carry out the activity for which consent has been withdrawn unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose. Where we consider this to be the case we will inform you of this condition and the alternative reasons.

Details of how to get in touch about these rights can be found here. We endeavour to deal with any requests without undue delay, and in any event within one month (subject to any extensions to which we are lawfully entitled). We may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

Where our lawful basis for processing your personal data is consent you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

If you withdraw consent, where consent is the legal basis for processing, we will cease to process your personal data for the activity which consent has been withdrawn unless we still need to process your data for legal or official reasons. If this is the case, we will inform you and will restrict the data to only what is necessary for the purpose of meeting those specific reasons.

If you blieve that any of your data that we process is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us using the details above and we will take reasonable steps to check its accuracy and correct it where necessary.

Subject Access Requests

Individuals can raise a Subject Access Request (SAR) to exercise one or more of their rights, listed in the Your Rights section of this Privacy Notice. As part of any request you will be required to provide proof of your identity before the request is processed. Your request will be processed within one month of receipt of both your request and proof of identity, except in circumstances where requests are complex or numerous.

If a request is considered complex or numerous we may extend the period of compliance by a further two months, notification of this will be provided within one month of receipt of the request along with details of why the extension is necessary.

Subject Access Requests will be processed free of charge except where the request is deemed “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. Where this is the case a “reasonable fee” may be charged. A “reasonable fee” may also be charged to comply with requests for additional copies of the same information, this fee will the administrative costs involved in providing the information.

Where we consider a request to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive” we may refuse to respond to the request. If we refuse to respond we will provide details of why this decision has been made along with details of your right to complain to the supervisory authority (the ICO) and to a judicial remedy.

Safeguarding Your Data

We are committed to taking all reasonable steps by means of “appropriate technical and organisational measures” to safeguard the personal information we hold form misuse, loss or unauthorised access. These include measures to deal with any suspected data breach.

We secure the personal information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
