We are advised that Datascope does not require specific permission from you to use data for our “legitimate interests”, which should be “broadly reasonable”. We have interpreted this as the normal administration that you expect to encounter when you register with a recruitment agency, including information regarding job opportunities.
You will need to opt-in to receive direct marketing and newsletters. There are no immediate plans for either and, in the medium term, this will be incorporated into the application process.
This is a new law and we will be keeping an eye on how it is interpreted for other recruitment agencies. We will also be holding an audit of the data that we hold together with its storage and retention to ensure that we remain compliant.
The Data Protection Officer is Julien Hofer. If, having read the Policy, you have any queries on the data that we hold on you please contact Julien on Julien@datascope.co.uk in the first instance. If you have any concerns or comments regarding the policy itself, please write to Datascope Recruitment Ltd, Victory House, 99–101 Regent Street, London, W1B 4EZ, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
