We want to explain clearly how we process Client personal data in the provision of our services.

For ease of use, we have split our Data Protection Statements into sections so you can easily find the information that you need:

  • Our Client - Data Protection Statement (this statement) provides specific information about our processing activities relevant to business clients, whose personal data we process as part of our business activities
  • Our Candidate - Data Protection Statement provides specific information about active/potential job seekers, and candidates supplied on assignment, whose personal data we process as part of our business
  • Our Other Contact - Data Protection Statement is relevant to all other individuals whose personal data we process who are not considered Candidates or Clients. This includes but is not limited to suppliers, agencies, partners, referees, emergency contacts, website users and members of the public
  • Our Group Information Statement provides information about the companies in the Group including relevant contact details. This information is relevant to all data subjects
  • The Data Protection Rights Statement is relevant to all data subjects and provides information about your rights and what you should do if you want to raise a concern

References to “we”, “us” and “Company” shall apply to the company in the group that is processing your personal data.

When sharing Candidate personal data with the Client, the Client is independently responsible for its own compliance with applicable data protection laws when processing Candidate personal data including the provision of a separate Client privacy notice to the Candidate.

This Data Protection Statement applies to Clients

For the purposes of this Client – Data Protection Statement, Clients are those business contacts that we engage with for the purposes of delivering services including:

  • to hire/employ Candidates in temporary, permanent or contract positions
  • for resource augmentation services
  • consultancy or advisory services
  • managed service solutions
  • recruitment process outsourcing
  • managed staffing provider services
  • business process managed solutions

We source Client personal data in order to serve the business relationship.

We receive personal data about Clients from a variety of sources, as follows:

  • the personal data is often provided by the Client or created by us as part of the relationship;
  • the personal data may be collected from public sources;
  • the personal data may be collected indirectly from another person within the company of the Client;
  • the personal data may be collected through our website;
  • the personal data may be collected indirectly from a website or from a third party.

This section describes the lawful basis we may use to process Client personal data.

We process all personal data lawfully and in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Laws. In the EU, the GDPR sets out the legal grounds available for processing personal data. When we process personal data any one of the following legal grounds will generally apply.

CONTRACT
We will process personal data where necessary to perform our obligations relating to or in accordance with any contract that we may have with you or to take steps at your request prior to entering into that contract.

LEGITIMATE INTEREST
At times we will need to process your personal data to pursue our legitimate interests, for example for administrative purposes, to collect debts owing to us, to provide information to you, to operate, evaluate, maintain, develop and improve our websites and services or to maintain their security and protect intellectual property rights.

We will not process your personal data on a legitimate interest basis where the impact of the processing on your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interests.

You may object to any processing we undertake on this basis. If you do not want us to process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests, contact us at privacy@morganmckinley.com and we will review our processing activities.

LEGAL OBLIGATION
If we have a legal obligation to process personal data we will process personal data on this legal ground.

DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS
In limited circumstances and in accordance with the law we may use personal data in the defence of legal claims or enforcing legal rights.

CONSENT
For certain processing activities we may rely on your consent.

Where we are unable to collect consent for a particular processing activity, we will only process the personal data if we have another lawful basis for doing so.

You can withdraw consent provided by you at any time by contacting us at privacy@morganmckinley.com

We only collect the personal data that we require in order to ensure we can have a productive business relationship with Clients.

We recognise that the level of engagement we have with different Candidates may vary and we manage our retention activities carefully to reflect this.

Examples of the activities that we would consider evidence of our ongoing engagement with a Client and thus a reason to continue to retain their personal data include:

  • a Client contact is added as a Timesheet Approver on a placement
  • a Client contact gives us a vacancy to recruit for
  • a Client contact who we send CV’s to
  • a Client contact who we arrange interviews with
  • a Client contact who extends an offer
  • a Client contact who we meet with face to face with or over the phone
  • Exchanging email correspondence or having telephone conversations with the Client

If a Client contact unsubscribes to marketing communications, no further marketing communications will be sent.

We may need to share your personal data in order to deliver our services. We will always ensure that any disclosure of personal data is undertaken in compliance with Data Protection Law and ensure that appropriate technical and organisational measures are undertaken to protect and secure any personal data that is transferred.
