Data Protection – Privacy Notice – Non-Applicant Candidates

How we use your personal data

Under UK data protection law we are required to provide you with specific information about how we will use and process any personal data we hold on you.

We have set out that information in this document. If you have any queries please contact us on the details provided below.

The purpose(s) for which we use your personal data and the lawful basis for such processing

Netbox Recruitment Limited may use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • In order to meet our contractual obligations towards you should you enter into a contractual relationship with us;
  • In order to meet any legal responsibilities we may have, such as disclosures to authorities, regulators or governing bodies; and
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

Our processing is based primarily on the lawful processing conditions of Necessity, Legal Compliance and our Legitimate Interests (or those of a third party).

Examples of how we use your personal data in the context of your relationship with us include

  • To assess your suitability for potential roles;
  • To send you marketing communications via email or other communication means in relation to our services and/or available roles;
  • Should we engage in a contractual relationship, to carry out the contract between us including where relevant, its termination;
  • To monitor and protect the security (including network security) of Netbox Recruitment Limited, of you, our other staff, customers and others;
  • To seek references for you;
  • To comply with any legal obligations which affect us
  • To answer questions from prospective employers which relate to you;
  • The general administration and operation of our business including invoicing and recovery of monies owed to us;
  • To defend ourselves in respect of any investigation or litigation and to comply with any court or tribunal orders for disclosure.

The legal basis for the processing we carry out

Necessity: means that the processing we carry out is necessary for the performance of a contract we have with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you.

Legal Compliance: means that the processing we carry out is necessary for compliance by us with a legal obligation placed on us.

Legitimate Interests: means that the processing of your personal data is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or by a third party and those interests are considered to be sufficient to override your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your personal data.

Where we rely on Necessity or Legal Compliance

If you fail to provide certain personal information when requested or otherwise object or seek to restrict our ability to process your personal data under these lawful processing conditions, we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you (such as putting you forward for a particular role), or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations.

Where we rely on Legitimate Interests

We rely on this lawful processing condition to process your personal data where we believe that on balance it is in the legitimate interests of Netbox Recruitment Limited to do so and where the risk to your fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh those interests.

  • We may transfer your personal information to a third party as otherwise permitted by UK Data Protection Law, for example to our legal advisors or in order to comply with a legal requirement or obligation placed on us by law.
