Under General Data Protection Regulations, which came into force on 25th May 2018, this privacy notice explains how Wardour Partnership Ltd uses any personal information collected about you.
What information do we collect and where do we get it from?
We collect and store profile information: this may include your name, address, telephone number, email address, education history, employment history, and other information which appears on a resume or CV. This could be provided directly from you, when a CV is given to us and/or when we approach you about a potential opportunity and collect this information through conversation with you.
This information allows us to support you and your interest in a position, about which we have approached you. It helps us when short-listing potential candidates for a role. By explicitly providing consent when you engage in discussion or submit your CV, you are providing permission for our storage of this information. Under no circumstances would we share any personal information or a CV with a third party without first gaining your explicit consent.
As well as information provided by you through interview or in a CV, we also collect information from publicly available sources and websites. This could include LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, other websites, such as those associated with professional conferences eg brochures/delegate lists.
On occasion, through confidential networking we also get information on you by reference or word of mouth. For example, you may be recommended by a friend, a former colleague, former boss etc
How do we use your personal information?
We use your personal information to match your skills and experience against a specific role requirement. Basic information, often no more than publicly available information (and excluding any contact details), may be shared with our client at this stage.
Before sharing more information with the client, we always tell you about the role. If you are interested we will collect further information from you and we could share this with the client. This information will be retained, only with your approval. If you are selected to progress through further stages of a recruitment process, we will collect additional information such as due diligence requirements and information from referees, whom you have nominated.

In processing your personal data in connection with the purposes set out in this Policy, we may rely on one or more of the following legal bases:
For how long do we hold your personal information?
In executive recruitment, it is not uncommon for us to maintain relationships with candidates for many years.

How do we secure your information and safeguard your data?
