What information we collect
For job applications, we will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes or store any of your information. The information you provide will be held securely by us and/or our data processors whether the information is in electronic or physical format. We will use the contact details you provide to us to contact you to progress your application. We will use the other information you provide to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for.
From time to time, during an online application process, we may use a third party online recruitment company to collect information from you concerning our services. Once you click ‘apply now’ you will be taken to the third party’s website and they will hold the information you submit which we can view. In such a scenario, the data will be held under their Privacy Notice.
We do not collect more information than we need to fulfil our stated purposes and will not retain it for longer than is necessary. The information we ask for is used to assess your suitability for employment or for training. You don’t have to provide what we ask for but it might affect your application if you don’t.
How we collect your personal information
We collect Personal Information in the following ways:
(a) From you. We receive and store any Personal Information you enter on the Site or give us in any other way, including but not limited to registering with us, purchasing something from us, receiving a service provided by us, or participating in a competition, prize draw or promotion sponsored by us or providing a service review.
(c) By using pixel tags, also known as a clear GIF or web beacon, an invisible tag is placed on certain pages of the Site but not on your computer. When you access these pages, pixel tags generate a generic notice of that visit. They usually work in conjunction with cookies, registering when a particular computer visits a particular page. If you turn off cookies the pixel tag will simply detect an anonymous website visit.
