Collection of Personal Information
The nature of our work requires us to process personal data quickly and confidentially in accordance with Data Protection Laws. The legal basis we rely on to offer you these services is legitimate interest.
Job Seekers – the information we collect and how we use it
To enable us to assist you with your job search we will collect your name, email address, or other Personal Information contained within that correspondence. If you are an applicant or a candidate we may collect your name and contact details along with information about your employment history, professional experience and qualifications, educational qualifications, language ability or any other data you may provide online through a web-based application form or your personal CV.
On other occasions we may also record sensitive information such as details of criminal convictions. With regard to all candidates and employers, we will only collect ‘sensitive’ Personal Information such as racial or ethnic origin, age, political, religious or philosophical beliefs, sexual life, social security or other Government identification numbers, Trades Union membership health or medical conditions, or criminal history if legally required for recruitment purposes.
Use of Personal Information
We may use Personal Information to respond to your enquiries and answer your questions, to provide you with requested information, and to undertake activities in connection with the conduct and management of our assignments. Examples include but are not limited to evaluating candidate qualifications, contacting potential candidates for further Personal Information, contacting named references, and communicating with clients about potential candidates. Lord may also use Personal Information for the purpose of testing and maintaining our company databases, networks and computer systems, and for training and other internal purposes.
Employers /Client– the information we collect and how we use it.
If you are a client or potential client we may collect your name, contact details, title or position, products or services requested, or other information that you may provide online through a web based application form or email correspondence.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We may share Personal Information with our affiliates and where necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of our services to you and our clients. Our clients may be located in jurisdictions around the world.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors including information technology providers and business process outsourcing providers, in order to support our continuing operations. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information in connection with any sale, assignment or other transfer of all or part of the business, or where we believe such disclosure may be required by law or may be necessary in connection with any legal claims. We may also use, disclose or otherwise process information you provide for statistical or other purposes we choose in our sole discretion, as long as such information is not in a personally identifiable form.
Retention of Personal Information
We will retain your personal information for a period of up to five years. In some cases where legally required, for example where we have placed you into a role or multiple roles with an employer or multiple employers, we will retain your personal information for up to ten years.
Your right to withdraw consent to our processing of your information
You have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given at any time by emailing your request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you withdraw consent we will continue to store the information we hold about you but not process this information.
If you ask us to delete the information we hold on you we will delete all information with the exception of your email address, first name and last name. This will enable us to record that you have withdrawn consent. In addition, where required by law, we may retain certain information about you to fulfil our legal obligations.
Website Usage Data
As with many websites the Lord website passively collects data about website usage through various means, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to identify server problems, administer the website, and compile aggregated statistics for marketing and research purposes. We also use small text files (‘cookies’) that are sent to the hard drive of your computer to store bits of information related to your use of our website. You may configure your Internet Browser to reject cookie files, but in doing so you may be prevented from accessing important functions or effectively interface with the website contents.
