Mint Recruitment Group (the “data controller”) takes the privacy of your personal information very seriously and is committed to safeguarding your privacy and your personal information, complying with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. This Privacy Policy relates to our use of any personal information we collect from you directly.

This Privacy Policy will explain the following:

what personal information may be collected about you;
how Mint Recruitment Group will use this personal information;
how long will Mint Recruitment Group retain your personal information;
how this personal information may be shared with other parties;
how your personal information will be kept secure;



How to contact us.

In this policy, personal information means information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, and online identifier or to one or more factors specific to his/her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

What personal information may be collected about you.

Mint Recruitment Group will collect your personal details, including but not limited to your name and contact details (together with your e-mail address) and other relevant information from your Curriculum Vitae ("CV"). On occasion this will also include sensitive personal information such as details of criminal convictions and ethnic origin. When we receive your details and CV electronically, this may be through a direct application on one of our websites or an application that you have made through a third party job board.

We will likely obtain further personal information about you during the course of our relationship with you. This information may be obtained from you directly or from third parties, such as organisations to whom we have provided your CV and who have engaged with you as part of a job application.

How Mint Recruitment Group will use this personal information.

We will hold, use and disclose your personal information, for our legitimate business purposes including:
to provide our services to you;
to maintain our business relationship, where you are a user of our website, a client or candidate;
to enable you to submit your CV for general applications, to apply for specific jobs.
to match your details with job vacancies, to assist us in finding a position that is most suitable for you and to send your personal information (including sensitive personal information) to clients in order to apply for jobs; to answer your enquiries;

our website uses a website recording service which can record mouse clicks, mouse movements, page scrolling and any text keyed into website forms. Data collected by this service is used to improve our website usability. The information collected is stored and is used for aggregated and statistical reporting, and is not shared with anybody else. How long will Mint Recruitment Group retain your personal information.

The length of time Mint Recruitment Group will hold or store your personal information for will depend on the services we perform for you and for how long you require these.

As we often support candidates with placements over many years, and potentially throughout their careers, the purpose for which we retain candidate data is often an ongoing purpose. We conduct regular data-cleansing and updating exercises with our candidates to ensure that (a) the data that we hold is accurate and (b) we are not holding data for too long.

Our standard terms of business state that our clients should retain candidate data such as CVs for the purposes of the specific role you apply for and that, as controllers of your data, they should inform you if they plan to retain your CV on file in order to notify you about potential future roles, or to otherwise hold or use your data for other purposes.
How this personal information may be shared with other parties.

In certain circumstances Mint Recruitment Group will share your personal information with other parties and will disclose your personal information to clients who have vacancies for jobs in which you are interested. Mint Recruitment Group requires minimum standards of confidentiality and data protection from such third parties

How your personal information will be kept secure.

Mint Recruitment Group is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We will use a variety of security technologies and procedures to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Mint Recruitment Group secures the personal information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
