  • The “legitimate interests” and category above is the most likely to apply to our Website UsersCandidatesClients and Suppliers as we do not engage in any direct marketing currently. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your 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.
  • Right to withdraw consent:Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to carry out the particular activity that you previously consented to unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose in which case we will inform you of this condition.
  • Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR):You may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and request us to modify, update or delete such information. We may ask you to verify your identity and for more information about your request. If we provide you with access to the information we hold about you, we will not charge you for this unless your request is “manifestly unfounded or excessive”. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible. 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 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.
      • We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons:
    • to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
    • to comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;
    • for public health reasons in the public interest;
    • for archival, research or statistical purposes; or

  • When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably practicable steps to delete the relevant data.
  • Right to restrict processing:You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest.
  • The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:
    • where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;
    • where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;
    • where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and
    • where we have no further need to process your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
      • If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.
      • Right to rectification:You also have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.
      • Right of data portability:If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer your CG Consultants account details to another online platform.

OUR LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS

  • Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR is the one that is relevant here – it says that we can process your data where it “is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data.”
  • We don’t think that any of the following activities prejudice individuals in any way – in fact, they help us to offer you a more tailored, efficient service. However, you do have the right to object to us processing your personal data on this basis. If you would like to know more about how to do so, please click here
  • CANDIDATE DATA:
    • We think it’s reasonable to expect that if you have sent your CV to us, are looking for an assignment or have posted your CV information onto a job board or professional networking site, you are happy for us to collect and otherwise use your personal data to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, share that information with prospective employers and assess your skills against our selection of vacancies.
    • Once it’s looking like you may be offered a position, your prospective employer may also want to check any information you’ve given us (e.g. results from psychometric evaluations or skills tests) or to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal record, to the extent that this is appropriate and in accordance with local laws. We have to do these things so that we can function as a successful profit-making business, and to help you and other Candidates get the jobs you deserve.
    • We need to make sure our business runs smoothly, so that we can carry on providing services to Candidates like you. We therefore also need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant.
    • We have our own obligations under the law, which it is a legitimate interest of ours to insist on fulfilling. If we believe in good faith that it is necessary, we may therefore share your data in connection with crime detection, tax collection or actual or anticipated litigation.
  • CLIENT DATA
    • To ensure that we provide you with the best service possible, we store your personal data and / or the personal data of individual contacts at your organisation as well as keeping records of our conversations, meetings, interviews, registered jobs and placements. From time to time, we may also ask you to undertake a customer feedback survey / questionnaire. We think this is reasonable and we deem these uses of your data to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation providing recruitment services to you.
  • SUPPLIER DATA: We do need to use and store the personal data of individuals within your organisation to make sure that our relationship runs smoothly and to facilitate the receipt of services from you. We will hold financial details so that we can pay you for your services. We deem these activities to be within our legitimate business interest as a recipient of your services.

******

  • PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CANDIDATES AND STAFF, SUCH AS REFEREES AND EMERGENCY CONTACTS:
  • If you have been put down by a Candidate or a prospective member of Staff as one of their referees, we use your personal data in order to contact you for a reference. This is a part of our vetting procedure and so we deem this to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation offering recruitment services and employing people ourselves.
  • If a Candidate or Staff member has given us your details as an emergency contact, we will use these details to contact you in the case of an accident or emergency. We deem these activities to be within our legitimate business interest.

********************************

  • CONSENT
  • In certain circumstances, we are required to obtain your consent to the processing of your personal data in relation to certain activities. In relation to recruitment activities we will seek consent to store and process your data whereby we no longer believe we have a legitimate business interest.
  • Article 4(11) of the GDPR states that (opt-in) consent is “any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.” This means that:
  • you have to give us your consent freely, without us putting you under any type of pressure;
  • you have to know what you are consenting to – so we’ll make sure we give you enough information;
  • you need to take positive and affirmative action in giving us your consent – we’re will provide a yes or no option. If you say no, within a reasonable time period your data will be deleted from our database.

We will keep records of the consents that you have given in this way.

  • As we have mentioned, you have the right to withdraw your consent to these activities. You can do so at any time, and details of how to do so can be found below in Annex 1.

ESTABLISHING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS

  • Sometimes it may be necessary for us to use your personal data to help us establish, exercise or defend legal claims. Article 9(2)(f) of the GDPR allows this where the processing “is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity”.
