Data is archived for 48 months after a candidate is placed, or if the candidate requests removal of their data, it will be done in a reasonably short time period after the request. We will comply with our obligations and safeguard your rights under the GDPR at all times. For more details on security see section 7, below.
6.2 Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data (e.g. by subscribing to emails), or because it is in our legitimate interests. Specifically, we may use your data for the following purposes:
6.2.1 To assess your suitability for employment with any of our clients;
6.2.2 Providing and managing your account;
6.2.3 Providing and managing your access to our site;
6.2.4 Personalising and tailoring your experience on our site;

6.3 With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your data for marketing purposes which may include contacting you by email and / or telephone and/or text message with information, regarding our services. We will not, however, send you any unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR.
6.4 You have the right to withdraw your consent to us using your personal data at any time, and to request that we delete it.
6.5 We do not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Data will therefore be retained for the following periods (or its retention will be determined on the following bases):
6.5.1 All personal data collected will be kept active indefinitely on our CRM system from the candidate’s date of registration until they are placed in employment by us. After placement, data will be retained for a further 48 (forty-eight) months, after which time, unless a person expressly asks us to update and have us retain their data, it will, by default, be securely deleted. In the case of candidates who are unplaced by us, but for whatever reason, ask us to withdraw their availability, we will archive the data for 48 months from the date of their request as if they had been placed. Likewise, after a further 48 months, their data will, by default, be securely removed. 
6.5.2 If we are requested by a candidate to actively remove their data at any time (as opposed to the candidate merely withdrawing their availability for employment) we will do so within a reasonable period. In this instance, should the person requesting removal have been placed within the previous 48 months, we will only retain data pertinent to potential legalities over that placement contract between us and any client. (e.g Including, but not limited to, the person’s name and the date of their placement).
within a reasonably brief period
