They are referred to as clients throughout this privacy notice. This privacy notice does not form part of any contract to provide services or contract of employment.

Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with data protection laws, where this is required or permitted by law.

For some of your personal information you will have a legal, contractual or other requirement or obligation for you to provide us with your personal information. If you do not provide us with the requested personal information we may not be able to engage you or the organisation you represent or we may not be able to properly perform our contract with you or the organisation you represent or comply with legal obligations and we may have to terminate your engagement or the engagement with the organisation you represent. For other personal information, whilst you may not be under an obligation to provide it to us, if you do not provide it then we may not be able to properly perform our role or services.

You should be aware that you are not required under any contract with us to agree to any request for consent. Where you have given us your consent to use your personal information in a particular manner, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, which you may do by contacting us as described in the "Contacting us" section below.

Please note that the withdrawal of your consent will not affect any use of the personal information made before you withdrew your consent and we may still be entitled to hold and process the relevant personal information on bases which do not require your consent. Withdrawing consent may also have the same effects as not providing the information in the first place, for example we may no longer be able to provide certain services.

5. AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you. We do use technology to better match you with candidates/clients that fit your requirements so that you only receive relevant profiles or position details, but there will always be an element of human interaction in the decision making.

6. DIRECT MARKETING

Where we do not already hold your consent to send marketing details to you, and you have not asked us to send them to you, our initial contact with you will always be to ask for your consent to send you marketing materials and to find out your marketing preferences.

Where you have agreed to receive marketing from us, from time to time, we may contact you by phone, email, post or SMS with marketing information about positions, applicants, candidates and services we believe you may be interested in, depending on whether you are a candidate or a client. Sometimes an individual can be both a client and a candidate.

We will only send marketing messages to you in accordance with the marketing preferences you set or agree to. You can then let us know at any time that you do not wish to receive marketing messages by emailing us at newusers@thirdway.pro or using the details in the "Contacting us" section at the end of this privacy notice. You can also unsubscribe from our marketing by clicking on the unsubscribe link or following the instructions in any marketing messages we send to you, or let us know when we speak to you.

We may share your personal information where it is necessary to administer the working relationship or we have a legitimate interest in so doing. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply such other terms as apply to our relationship, or where we have a legitimate interest in doing so. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection.

All our third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We do not normally disclose personal information to anyone else except as set out above. Who we may disclose your personal information to will depend upon the nature of our relationship with you and whether you are a client or a candidate.

8. TRANSFERRING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION INTERNATIONALLY

The personal information we collect about you is not transferred to or stored in countries outside of the UK or European Economic Area except as set out in this section.

Our directors and other individuals working for us may in limited circumstances access personal information outside of the UK and European Union if they are on holiday abroad outside of the UK or European Union. If they do so they will be using our security measures and will be subject to their arrangements with us which are subject to English Law and the same legal protections that would apply to processing personal data within the UK.

In limited circumstances the people to whom we may disclose personal information as mentioned in the "Who we share your personal information with" section above may be located outside of the UK and European Economic Area. In these cases we will impose any legally required protections to the personal information which are required by law before it is disclosed.

If you require more details on the arrangements for any of the above then please contact us using the details in the "Contacting us" section below.

9. HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR

The duration for which we retain your personal information will differ depending on the type of information and the reason why we collected it from you. However, in some cases personal information may be retained on a long term basis: for example, personal information that we need to retain for legal purposes will normally be retained in accordance with usual commercial practice and regulatory requirements. Generally, where there is no legal requirement we retain all physical and electronic records for a period of 6 years following your last contact with us.

It is important to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up-to-date, and you should let us know if anything changes, for example if you change employers or change your phone number or email address. You may be able to update some of the personal information we hold about you through www.thirdway.pro. Alternatively, you can contact us by using the details set out in the "Contacting us" section below.

10. YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You have the following rights in relation to your personal information:

  • the right to request that we transfer elements of your data either to you or another service provider; and
  • the right to object to certain automated decision making processes using your personal information.

You should note that some of these rights, for example the right to require us to transfer your data to another service provider or the right to object to automated decision making, may not apply as they have specific requirements and exemptions which apply to them and they may not apply to personal information recorded and stored by us. For example we do not use automated decision making in relation to your personal data. However some have no conditions attached, so your right to withdraw consent or object to processing for direct marketing are absolute rights.

Whilst this privacy notice sets out a general summary of your legal rights in respect of personal information, this is a very complex area of law. More information about your legal rights can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website at https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/.

To exercise any of the above rights, or if you have any questions relating to your rights, please contact us by using the details set out in the "Contacting us" section below.
