PLEASE NOTE: This is a bullet point summary of our commitments and practices under the GDPR, the full statement can be found below.
We are iintegra Ltd. We provide the software the recruiter uses to manage your application and are the primary "Data Processor" dealing with your application.
For direct recruiters, they are a "Data Controller", for agencies, depending on their recruitment practice, they may be a "Data Controller" (usually for temp role recruitment) or "Data Processor" (usually for permanent roles with an employer).
There may be other data processors involved in the process and you will be informed of their involvement. If we need to, we will ask you before providing these third parties with your data. Some third parties can be passed limited data about you without the need for consent.
When processing an application, we gather the following information as a minimum:
This data is used to enable a recruiter to contact you about the vacancy you've applied to.
When you apply via a job board, sometimes, they send more information than we require. We store this extra information for auditing purposes only. This data may include prior work experience and other employment information you have provided to them in the past.
The Data Controller can ask for further information when processing your application using custom forms defined by them. Custom form data is only ever processed in relation to your application.
For more details on any of these points, please refer to our full GDPR data management statement.
There may be several stages of your application that allow us to process your data in an automated, semi-automated or manual way, each of which is described below.
If you are shortlisted for a role, all of the data collected as part of your application up to that point may be made available to one or more hiring managers who will be involved in the decision making process for your application.
In the event of your application being direct to the employer, hiring managers are typically senior staff within the same company.
If this application is via a recruitment agency or other third party agent working on behalf of an employer, the hiring managers will be senior staff from the employers organisation.
During your application, we will want to speak to you on the phone.
You may be contacted by one of our recruiters or a third party agent acting on our behalf who will want to discuss the role with you and your reasons for applying. You may also be asked some specific questions that the employer has set out for the application process.
iintegra Ltd ("iintegra") takes the privacy and security of your information very seriously. This policy explains how and for what purposes we use the information collected about you via the iintegra Talent Acquisition Platform (referred to below as the “TAP”). Please read this data management policy carefully.
For the purposes of the GDPR, iintegra is classed as a Data Processor and processes your information on behalf of the Data Controller.
If you have any queries about the policy, please get in touch with us using the contact details set out here and we will do our best to answer your questions.
iintegra uses the Azure platform from Microsoft to deploy its servers. All of the servers used by the iintegra platform are restricted to physical locations based in the European Union.
Microsoft and its employees do not have access to any data stored on the iintegra platform. However, restricted access may be required occasionally to assist with technical issues as they arise.
The TAP is configurable on a client by client basis to collect any data they deem reasonable for the purposes of recruiting individuals to open positions that they have.
The TAP requires a minimum of information to start an application which is set out below:
The TAP may be configured by the client to request additional information from you in furtherance of your application.
The TAP uses the information you provide to assist our client in the management of the application.
Where our client requires a third party to process your data, we will make the minimal amount of information available for the process to work. Your data may be shared with a third party as part of your application process for the purposes of telephone interview, assessment or background checks.
We have implemented technology and policies to safeguard your privacy from unauthorized access and improper use. We use secure sockets, currently implementing the TLS v1.2 standard to encrypt any personal information you need to input before it is sent to us. Your password is stored as a one-way hash (a special string of characters mathematically generated using your password as a starting point) using the SHA-512 hashing algorithm which does not contain any trace of your original password. When you login, we re-calculate the hash based on the password you provide and compare it with the hash we store.
All of your data is stored within encrypted databases and on storage mediums with encryption enabled. This is typically referred to as encryption at rest.
As the data processor, we provide services and facilities that help you to manage your data and exercise your rights according to the GDPR. These facilities are outlined below:
At any time, you can access your application management portal and withdraw your consent for each application individually. When you withdraw consent, your application will still be processed but under the stricter "Legitimate Interest" clauses of the GDPR.
In addition to the ability to withdraw your consent for individual applications, you can at any time remove either individual applications or all of your data from iintegra in your account. When you do this, anonymised copies of your applications are retained for reporting purposes.
If you are unhappy with the way your data has been handled, you have the right to complain at any time. If you wish to make a complaint, please contact our Data Protection Officer via our Support portal by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the right to lodge complaints with the Information Commissioners Office. Please visit https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ for further information or to start a live chat. Alternatively, you may call the ICO on 0303 123 1113.
When you make your application, we store a one-way hash of your e-mail address against the vacancy to which you apply in order to detect and prevent duplicate applications. This hash is not connected to your personal data and will be retained if you remove an application or your entire account.
When you apply to a vacancy, we calculate a one-way hash of the e-mail address you provide and compare the hash against any previous hashes we have stored for that vacancy. If we find a match using this technique, we prevent the application from being made.
We review the ways we manage your information in accordance with the guidelines and legal requirements set out by the GDPR and other relevant Data Protection acts. As a result of these reviews we may change how we manage and store the information collected and who we share it with. Consequently, this privacy notice may be updated from time to time.
Contact us with your views about our privacy practices, or with any enquiry relating to your personal information. You can do so by sending an e-mail to the data officer or write to us at Florence House, St. Mary's Road, Hinckley, LE10 1EQ.
