We generally do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). There are limited situations and certain circumstances that may require your personal data to be transferred outside of the EEA, For example, in relation to our customer relationship management system; the role that you are being considered for may require us to transfer your personal data out of the EEA to the potential employer, or may require us to seek references from previous employers outside of the EEA. In selected services we also offer potential employers a portal access to a secure log in area to post vacancies and review candidates which is hosted via a third party which may be outside of the EEA (at the date of this policy this is current via Amazon). In such circumstances we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
5.6. we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or
5.7. where the relevant party is located within the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
6. Where We Store Your Personal Data
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. In order to assist in the performance of our services, the data that we collect from you may also be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the EEA as noted above. It will also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of services to you and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, 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.
