Privacy Notice

Trust Hunter Limited will be what is known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. Trust Hunter’s registration number is 11355741 and our registered address is Marsland House, Marsland Road, Sale, Cheshire, M33 3AQ.

Trust Hunter is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This notice sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide us, will be processed by us.

Who we are and what we do
We collect personal data from the following types of people to allow us to undertake our business:
– Candidates for permanent and contract roles
– Prospective and live client contacts
– Supplier contacts to support our services
– Employees, consultants, temporary workers

Types of Data We Collect
In order to provide the best possible employment opportunities that are tailored to our candidates, we need to process certain information. We only ask for details that will genuinely help us to help candidates find a new role, such as name, contact details, education details, employment history and immigration status (and other relevant information you may choose to share).

If you are a Trust Hunter customer, we need to collect and use information about you, or individuals at your organisation, in the course of providing you with our services. This can include finding candidates to fill your roles, providing customer support or notifying you of content published by Trust Hunter which may be relevant to you.

Trust Hunter will also store information relating to previous dealings with us, including job applications and email communications.

We collect a limited amount of data from the users of our website which we use to help us to improve your experience when using our website and to help us manage the services we provide. This includes information such as how you use our website, the most popular referrers and website responsiveness. You can read more about this in our Cookies Policy.

Where we obtain your information
Trust Hunter works closely with its sister company JAM Recruitment. When you submit your details to JAM Recruitment, your details will be shared with Trust Hunter. We may also obtain candidate information from several other locations:
– When you correspond with us by phone, email or otherwise 
– When you visit our website
– When you apply for one of our jobs via a job board
– When you are referred by a friend / colleague
– Your online profiles

When we obtain your information from external sources such as LinkedIn, corporate websites and job boards we will inform you, by sending you this privacy notice, within a maximum of 30 days of collecting the data of the fact we hold personal data about you, the source the personal data originates from, and for what purpose we intend to retain and process your personal data. There are two main ways in which we collect client data:
– Directly from you
– From third parties such as candidates, online job boards, LinkedIn and networking.

Data Retention
We will delete candidate personal data from our systems if we have not had any meaningful contact with you for seven years (or for such longer period as we believe, in good faith, that the law or relevant regulators require us to preserve your data). After this period, it is likely your data will no longer be relevant for the purposes for which it was collected.

We will consider there to be meaningful contact with you if you submit your updated CV to us or apply for jobs with us. We will also consider it meaningful contact if you communicate with us about potential roles, either by verbal or written communication or engage with any of our marketing communications.

Under new data protection regulations (GDPR), we are required to keep the data we hold accurate and, where necessary, up to date. As such, we will make an effort to regularly communicate with you to ensure your data is up to date and accurate.

Whilst we will endeavor to permanently erase your personal data once it reaches the end of its retention period or where we receive a valid request from you to do so, some of your data may still exist within an archive system. While certain details may still exist on an archive system, this cannot be readily accessed by any of our operational systems, processes or staff.

For a list of all data categories and retention periods, please contact data@trusthunter.co.uk

Legal Basis for Processing
Our legal basis for the processing of personal data is our legitimate business interests, described in more detail below, although we will also rely on contract, legal obligation and consent for specific uses of data.

We will rely on contract if we are negotiating or have entered into a contract to provide services to you or receive services from you or your organisation.

We will rely on legal obligation if we are legally required to hold information on to you to fulfil our legal obligations. We will, in some circumstances, rely on consent for particular uses of your data and you will be asked for your express consent, if legally required.

Legitimate Interests
Here at Trust Hunter, we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to administer your account and to provide you with our services.

We think it’s reasonable to expect that, if you are looking for employment or have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site, you are happy for us to collect use your personal data to promote relevant career opportunities to you and share your information with prospective employers (with your consent).

Data Storage and Processing
All of the personal data we hold about you will be processed by our staff in the United Kingdom, and accessed by our cloud-based CRM system, Bullhorn (UK data centre). We take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is processed securely and prevent unauthorised access to, and misuse of your personal data. 

If you are a customer and we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Who do we share your data with?
As required under GDPR, we will only share your information to prospective employers with your express consent.

Unless you specify otherwise, we may also share your information with any of our sister company, JAM Recruitment and associated third parties such as our service providers where we feel this will help us to provide you with the best possible service and we have the appropriate processing agreement in place.
