This privacy policy & data storage terms set out how Research Talent Hub uses and protects any information that you give us when you use this website.

HOW WE USE YOUR DATA

We are a recruitment agency and recruitment business. We collect information about you to carry out our core business and provide services to you & maintain a business relationship with both candidates and clients.

We use your data to keep you informed about interim and permanent job opportunities that might be of interest to you.

We’ll match you with job vacancies, and submit your details either for a job role or speculatively, enabling us to find the role that is most suitable for your career aspirations.

We’ll use your information (with your explicit consent) to fulfil contractual obligations with our clients.

Our Candidate Registration buttons on our website enable you personalise your experience and submit job applications. 

You can also ‘opt in’ to receive our email bulletins with regard to market research trends and vacancies’ news/job alerts.

Alternatively, you can amend your preferences or “ask to be forgotten” by contacting our Data Officer at joanna@researchtalenthub.co.uk

OUR LEGITIMATE BUSINESS INTERESTS

As a recruitment business and recruitment agency we introduce candidates for permanent or interim recruitment and as such the exchange of personal data of our candidates and our client contacts is a fundamental, and essential part of this process. We do not use your personal information in any other way such as profiling and other automated services. To support our candidates’ career development needs and our clients’ resourcing requirements we need to store your information on a secure UK-based database system.

 

CONSENT

We guarantee never to forward any part of your personal information to a third party without your explicit CONSENT. To lawfully process your data, we will request your consent by email for the specific activity we require consent for (i.e. sending your CV to our client for a specific role or introducing you speculatively to our client for a duration of 6 months), and to record your response on our system. We will keep an auditable proof of your consent on our systems for 12 months.

 

YOUR RIGHTS (RIGHT TO ACCESS & RIGHT TO ERASE)

You have the right to access your personal information that we hold on our systems. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information about you rectified. You can also request us to erase your personal information in line with “the right to be forgotten”. We will grant both requests within 30 days.

Please note that we are not able to delete people from third-party social networks used by Research Talent Hub such as LinkedIn.
