The purpose of this document is to set out the privacy entitlements of Data Subjects, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), of living persons. Privacy can only apply to information that is not already in the public domain and GDPR only applies to such personal data.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union Regulation that sets out the data entitlements of data subjects and the obligations of those who process the personal data of data subjects. GDPR seeks to protect and enhance the rights of data subjects. These rights cover the safeguarding of personal data, protection against the unlawful processing of personal data and the unrestricted movement of personal data within the EU.

The individuals with whom we have contact at our client, prospective client and supplier businesses
Our own employees – our own employee data processing information is set out in their employee handbook
We rely upon the following legal bases for data collection:
In balancing your data protection rights against this legitimate interest of our company, we have considered:
1. The frequency of notifications to you in order to ensure that no nuisance is caused to you;
2. The security and integrity of the data you have provided to us.
3. Your rights and entitlements to stop the processing of your data with ease and to this end we put you in control of the data that is accessible in our website
4. Consent: On occasion we may rely on consent in the collection and processing of some data. Given the nature of the relationship of agent to Candidate and agent to Client we consider that consent is not an appropriate ground on which to rely and therefore it will only be utilised in rare occasions.
This Privacy Statement sets out how Recruitment Plus uses and processes any information that you give to us. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Statement explains how we collect, transfer, process, use and disclose your data and sets out our security practices.

We collect data from you and process it in the provision of our services as a recruitment company. The process we follow is that you send us your details because (1) you are applying for a position advertised by us and (2) you wish to register with the agency in order to put yourself forward to any positions which may become available and are of interest to you.
We receive all applications by email, we hold all applications within our secure email filing system until we have the opportunity to screen the application and its suitability for the positions we currently have available. We will screen your application for all positions suitable, regardless of whether you have applied for only one position or registered with us in general. If you applied for only one position, we will make contact with you to advise you that we have other positions of interest and in that conversation we will seek your consent to talk to you about those other positions. You are free to say no and state that you are only interested in the position you applied for. If you say yes, we will then proceed to register you on the agency’s data records management system. Once screened, candidates who are suitable for the positions that are or may become available are then placed on data records management system, and all of our recruitment consultants can then view that data and bring to the attention of the candidate any position that may be of interest. Candidates who are not suitable for any positions available or not available will be kept in our filing system for a period of one year after which their details will be deleted. Due to the volume of applications we are not be able to reply to every application.
Once an applicant is registered, they are considered a candidate. Our candidate/consultant relationship involves receiving your data, highlighting your skills and competencies, making telephone contact with you, emailing you with positions that may be of interest to you, emailing and telephoning potential employers to advance your career prospects with those companies and sharing your data with those potential employers.<>When you register with us you are agreeing to our company acting as an agent for you in your pursuit of an employment position with a third party until you either opt out (which you can do at any stage). Our company in their capacity as your agent operates as a Data Controller in respect of the personal data you supply to us. We share your data with third party Clients in order to advance your prospect of obtaining your desired position and while we require that our clients are GDPR compliant we can make no guarantees or warranties in that regard. For some positions we are obliged to collect data that could be considered to be sensitive data that is required for legal compliance purposes, such as for security or HIQA audit purposes, we will inform you fully if and when this circumstance arises.
Our experience has been that we have candidates who come back to us again and again over the course of their career when they wish to change jobs or are looking for a new challenge. Consequently our policy is to keep your data on our records management system indefinitely, until such time as you indicate you would rather that we deleted your data. We will send you an email once per year asking you to update your information in order to ensure that the details we have are accurate and up to date.
We collect personally identifiable information (DATA) that you provide to us, which is information that identifies you as an individual. We collect DATA about Client and Supplier contacts from a number of sources, as follows:
