As the operators of the Third Way Recruitment website, Third Way Recruitment Limited ("We", "Us") is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy ("Policy") sets out the basis on which the personal data collected from you, or that you provide to us will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

In addition to Third Way Recruitment Limited processing personal information as a data controller, we also process personal information as a data processor on behalf of Employers. Where you are a Candidate (as defined in our Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.) or prospective Candidate involved in a recruitment process with an Employer, the Employer’s privacy policy may apply to our processing of your personal information instead of, or in addition to, this Privacy Policy.
