GDPR Candidate Data Agreement
At Evolve, we take your privacy seriously and can guarantee that your personal data will never be shared with a 3rd party without first gaining your express consent, unless we are legally obliged to do so.
In line with the GDPR regulations that came in to force in May 2018, we now use a GDPR compliant interactive candidate database. This puts you in control of your personal data. The system is also highly secure, with encrypted servers based here in the UK.
We also like to try and keep things simple, so here is a brief outline of how we process personal data (any identifiable data on any person).
If you apply through our website, part of the application process will be agreeing to our Candidate Data Agreement, so your data will be automatically processed on to our system.
If you apply through an external job-board and we feel that your skills match the type of roles we recruit, in most instances we will contact you to discuss the role and obtain your verbal consent to load your data on to our system.
If we do not initially speak with you to gain your verbal permission or if we download your CV from an online database that we have access to, we will notify you via email that we have obtained your personal data. At this point you will have full access to our system and complete control of what happens with your data and how we interact with you.
We place a large percentage of our roles with people directly from our own database, therefore we’d hope that you’ll want to keep in touch and stay connected!
However, at any point in time if you want to delete your personal data, you can simply login and remove your account from our system or email or call us requesting we delete your data.
We will hold your data on file for a period of 5 years (unless we place you in a role, then we will retain your data for up to 7 years). At the end of this period, if we have not had any interaction with you, your personal data will be automatically deleted.
