We recognise our responsibility in processing your personal data and your right to privacy.

 

How we collect your data

 

When you visit our websites or use our services, we collect personal data. The ways we collect it can be broadly categorised into the following:

 

Information you provide to us directly: When you visit or use some parts of our websites and/or services we might ask you to provide personal data to us. For example, we ask for your contact information and you may forward your CV or compliance documentation to us to store. If you don’t want to provide us with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might limit our ability to provide work finding services – particularly in cases where we have a responsibility to check compliance documents.

 

Information we collect automatically: We do not collect or store information automatically when you visit our websites.

 

Information we get from third parties: The majority of information we store, you supply directly to us. Sometimes we might collect personal data about you from trusted third party job boards and only do so based on the data share agreements you have in place with those third party sites. When we contact you through third party data we always advise you of the source and offer you the right to have your data retained or removed by us.

 

Where we collect personal data, we’ll only process it:

  • to contact you about suitable employment opportunities within the dental sector.

 

If you decide that you do not want to have a relationship with us you may also want to contact the third party provide and ask them to remove your data record.

 

How we use your data

We use your personal data to provide you with any work finding services you’ve requested, and to manage our relationship with you. We also use your personal data for other purposes, which can include the following:

To communicate with you. This may include:

  • providing you with information you’ve requested from us (like training or education materials) or information we are required to send to you
  • operational communications, like changes to our websites and services, security updates, or assistance with using our services
  • marketing communications about another product or service we think you might be interested in, in accordance with your marketing preferences
  • asking you for feedback or to take part in surveys or research

 

To analyse, aggregate and report: We may use the personal data we collect about you and other users of our websites and services to produce aggregated and anonymised analytics and reports for internal purposes.

 

How we can share your data

 

There will be times when we share your personal data with third party clients. We will only disclose your personal data to:

  • Clients who have retained us to search for suitable candidates for appropriate job vacancies and where you have given us consent to share your CV and personal data
  • regulators, law enforcement bodies, government agencies, courts or other third parties where we think it’s necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations, or to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights. Where possible and appropriate, we will notify you of this type of disclosure
  • an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with an actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of a dental business if we are assisting you with a purchase
  • other professional bodies and organisations where we have your consent.

 

International Data Transfers

When we share data abroad for the purposes of introducing candidates for international job opportunities, we will only do so with your consent to do so.

 

Security

 

Security is a priority for us when it comes to your personal data. We’re committed to protecting your personal data and have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to make sure that happens.

 

Retention

 

The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, compliance documentation).

 

We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it.

 

Your rights

 

It’s your personal data and you have certain rights relating to it. When it comes to marketing communications, you can ask us not to send you these at any time.

 

You also have rights to:

  • know what personal data we hold about you, and to make sure it’s correct and up to date
  • request a copy of your personal data, or ask us to restrict processing your personal data or delete it
  • object to our continued processing of your personal data

 

You can exercise these rights at any time by sending an email to info@blueskypeople.co.uk

 

If you’re not happy with how we are processing your personal data, please let us know by sending an email to info@blueskypeople.co.uk. We will review and investigate your complaint, and try to get back to you within a reasonable time frame. You can also complain to your local data protection authority. They will be able to advise you how to submit a complaint.
