Why we use your personal data
We use the personal data collected through the Website for a number of purposes, including the following:
Legal grounds for using your personal data
We will only use your personal data where we have a legal ground to do so. We determine the legal grounds based on the purposes for which we have collected and use your personal data. In every case, the legal ground will be one of the following:
Security of your Personal Data
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational controls to protect your personal data against unauthorised processing and against accidental loss, damage or destruction. Unfortunately, sending information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data once with us, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal data sent to our site while still in transit and so you provide it at your own risk.
Never disclose any private information in response to a job advertisement or include on your CV any of the following: National Insurance number, driving licence number, passport number, bank/credit card details and date of birth. If you are ever asked to do this by a recruiter please contact us.
Who we share your data with
One-off job applications
When you apply for jobs on the Website and upload your CV, a copy is stored on the CV database. If you choose to share your CV or personal details with recruiters, we ask them not to hold your CV for longer than is necessary and not to use your CV for purposes other than recruitment.
When you submit a one-off application through the Website, we share it directly with the company who advertised the position. We will keep a copy of your CV for six months. However, sometimes you can also submit your CV directly to the company. In this case we do not receive a copy of your CV. When applying without a Website profile, you have the option to store a copy of your CV on the main CV database. Recruiters can search the main CV database depending on your settings as explained above.
We do not share your personal data with other people or companies that are not directly linked to us except under the following circumstances:
Any other organisations that access your personal data in the course of providing services on our behalf will be governed by strict contractual restrictions to make sure they protect your personal data and keep to all data privacy laws that apply. We may also independently audit these service providers to make sure that they meet our standards.
We will not share your personal data with anyone else for their own marketing purposes unless we have your permission to do this.
Keeping your personal data
We keep your personal data for only as long as we need it. How long we need your personal data depends on what we are using it for. For example, if you have applied for a particular job using the Stockport Jobs Match website and submitted your CV, we keep your CV on our database for six months. For some jobs advertised on Stockport Jobs Match, you will be redirected directly to the recruiter or employer and we will not receive your CV or application. We are not responsible for how long recruiters or employers who have received your CV store your details or CV.
We will remove any remaining CV after 30 months of inactivity or make it anonymous by removing all your details that identify you. If we asked for your permission to process your personal data and we have no other lawful grounds to continue with that processing, and you withdraw your permission, we will remove your personal data. However, when you unsubscribe from marketing communications, we will keep your email address to ensure that we will not send you any marketing in future.
How we may contact you
When you have added your CV to our searchable database you can choose to receive Jobs Match emails that are tailored to your job preferences, for example, sector and location. If you no longer want to receive these emails, you can unsubscribe by clicking the link at the bottom of each email.
If you have opted in for marketing emails or signed up for Job Match emails through the Website, you can receive general jobs newsletter emails/ Job match emails suggesting new vacancies. These may be based on your CV profile. You can unsubscribe from these emails by clicking the link at the bottom of each email.
