How We Use Personal Data

  1. Recruitment activities;
  2. Marketing activities; and
  3. To help us establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
1. Recruitment Activities

Our main area of work is recruitment, and as a Candidate, your personal data is processed for the purposes of providing you with work-finding services. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Contacting you about job opportunities;
  • Assessing your suitability for those job opportunities;
  • Updating our databases;

  • The development and marketing of other products and services;
  • Marketing our full range of recruitment services to you;

  • Displaying promotional excerpts from your details on Cast UK Limited's website(s) as a success story (only where we have obtained your express consent to do so).

We need your consent for some aspects of these activities which are not covered by our legitimate interests and, depending on the situation, we'll ask for this via an opt-in.

If you are not happy about our approach to marketing, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

If you have opted out from our marketing communications, either via the unsubscribe link in the footer of marketing emails or through your website profile, it is possible that your personal data may be recaptured from public sources in an unconnected marketing campaign. While we will endeavour to ensure this does not happen there may be instances, from time to time, where it does and would appreciate your understanding in these instances.

Our marketing is based on what we think will serve our Candidates best. We may use your data to show you Cast UK Limited adverts and other content on other websites.

3. To Help Us Establish, Exercise or Defend Legal Claims

In some cases, we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

How Long We Keep Your Data For (Retention)

We will keep your personal data for a period of three years after our last meaningful contact with you (or our last meaningful contact with the company or entity that supplies your services if they are provided via a third-party company or entity). Different laws may require us to keep your personal data for different periods of time, where a law requires we keep your personal data for a period in excess of three years your personal data will be kept for the period required by law.

"Meaningful contact" means, for example, written or verbal communication between us and you or where you are actively using our online services, including, but not limited to, uploading your updated CV to our website. We also consider communication from you regarding potential roles, either written or verbal, or clicking through from, or replying to, any of our marketing emails as meaningful contact.

Who We Share Your Personal Data With

Where appropriate, and in accordance with local laws and requirements, we may share your personal data with the following categories of people:

  • Any of our group companies;
  • Individuals and organisations who hold information related to your reference or application to work with us, such as current, past or prospective employers, educators and examining bodies and employment and recruitment agencies;
  • Tax, audit, or other authorities, we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to share this data (for example, because of a request by a tax authority or in connection with any anticipated litigation);
  • Third-party service providers who perform functions on our behalf (including external consultants, business associates and professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors and accountants, technical support functions and IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems);
  • Third-party outsourced IT and document storage providers where we have an appropriate processing agreement (or similar protections) in place;
  • Marketing technology platforms and suppliers;
  • Potential employers and other recruitment agencies/organisations to increase your chances of finding employment;
  • Third-party partners, job boards and job aggregators where we consider this will improve the chances of finding you the right job;
  • Managed Service Provider (MSP) suppliers as part of our clients' MSP programmes;
  • Third-parties we have retained to provide services such as reference, qualification and criminal conviction checks, to the extent that these checks are appropriate and in accordance with local laws; and
  • If Cast UK Limited merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future (or is in meaningful discussions about such a possibility) we may share your personal data with the (prospective) new owners of the business or company.

Lawful Basis for Processing

Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that we process all personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.

Article 6(1)(f) states that Cast UK Limited can process your data where "processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third-party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child."

In simpler language this is where Cast UK Limited has a legitimate reason to process your data provided it is reasonable and does not go against what you would reasonably expect from us.

As a Candidate we believe it is reasonable to expect us to collect and use your personal information to provide recruitment services to you, to share your personal information with prospective employers and compare your skills against our current vacancies where you have either provided us with your information directly, posted your CV information on a job board or on professional networking sites. Once it looks like you may be offered a position with a prospective employer, they may want to check any information you have provided or to confirm your qualifications, experience or references. The providing of this information to prospective employers is required to help you, and other Candidates, get the jobs you deserve and allows us to function as a profit-making recruitment business.

We think it's reasonable to process your personal data to provide a tailored recruitment service, offering you, the Candidate, a more pleasant job search experience and ensuring you receive the most appropriate content for your job search.

In some cases, we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

While we don't believe any of the above activities prejudice you in any way – they enable us to provide the service you have engaged us for – you have the right to object to us processing your data on this basis.

  • Tax, audit, or other authorities, we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to share this data (for example, because of a request by a tax authority or in connection with any anticipated litigation);
  • Third-party service providers who perform functions on our behalf (including external consultants, business associates and professional advisers such as lawyers, auditors and accountants, technical support functions and IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems);
  • Third-party outsourced IT and document storage providers where we have an appropriate processing agreement (or similar protections) in place;
  • Marketing technology platforms and suppliers;
  • If Cast UK Limited merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future (or is in meaningful discussions about such a possibility) we may share your personal data with the (prospective) new owners of the business or company.

Lawful Basis for Processing

Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires that we process all personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.

Article 6(1)(f) states that Cast UK Limited can process your data where "processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third-party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child."

In simpler language this is where Cast UK Limited has a legitimate reason to process your data provided it is reasonable and does not go against what you would reasonably expect from us.

As a Website Visitor we believe it is reasonable to expect us to collect and use your personal information to provide a positive browsing experience.

In some cases, we may be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating, reporting and detecting crime and also to comply with laws that apply to us. We may also use your information during the course of internal audits to demonstrate our compliance with certain industry standards.

While we don't believe any of the above activities prejudice you in any way – they enable us to provide the service you have engaged us for – you have the right to object to us processing your data on this basis.

Your Rights

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provides the following rights for individuals:

  1. The right to be informed;
  2. The right of access;
  3. The right to rectification;
  4. The right to erasure (to be forgotten);
  5. The right to restrict processing;
  6. The right to data portability;
  7. The right to object;
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling; and
  9. The right to withdraw consent.
1. The Right to Be Informed

Individuals have the right to be informed about the collection and use of their personal data in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible way that uses clear and plain language. This Privacy Notice serves to provide this information.

Where personal data is obtained from third-party sources we will endeavour to inform the individual of this privacy information in a timely manner and no later than one month after receiving the data.

2. The Right of Access

Under the GDPR, individuals have the right to obtain:

  • Confirmation that their data is being processed;
  • Access to their personal data; and
  • Other supplementary information.

This right of access has been provided to allow individuals to access their personal information, so they are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing.

To find out if we hold any of your personal information, and what data we hold, a Subject Access Request (SAR) can be submitted.

If we do hold your personal information we will:

  • Provide a description of it;
  • Explain why we are holding it;
  • Explain who it could be disclosed to; and
  • Let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.

3. The Right to Rectification

Individuals have the right to request that any inaccurate personal data is rectified or completed if it is incomplete. Personal data is considered to be inaccurate if "it is incorrect or misleading as to a matter of fact". This request can be made either verbally or in writing.

When a request for rectification is received we will take reasonable steps to confirm the identity of the individual making the request and to satisfy ourselves that the data provided is accurate and that rectification of the data is required. When considering the accuracy of the data you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data until its accuracy has been established. Details of this right can be found here.

When we are satisfied of the accuracy of the new data we will update it within our systems. If we have shared the inaccurate personal data with third-parties, we will notify them of the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

We will inform you of the outcome of your request within one month of receipt of your request. Where a request is complex, or a number of requests have been received from you, the time to respond may be extended by a further two months. If we extend the time period we have to respond to your request, we will inform you of this within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reasons for the extension.

We retain the right to refuse to comply with a request for rectification if the request is "manifestly unfounded or excessive". Alternatively, we may request a "reasonable fee" to deal with requests considered to be "manifestly unfounded or excessive".

Where we refuse to comply with the request we will, without undue delay and within one month of receipt of the request, inform the individual of:
