Information collection and use

We will use information supplied by you (including, without limitation, sensitive personal data) to aid the recruitment process and associated administrative functions. This involves us, amongst other things, processing and storing information (including, without limitation, sensitive personal data) and passing or making available online such information to prospective employers and clients; information about vacancies and placements will be passed to candidates and may be posted directly onto the website.

You consent to us using information provided by you (including, without limitation, sensitive personal data) in each of these ways.

We may collect and aggregate data from the information supplied by you to help us to understand our users as a group so that we can provide you with a better service. We may also share aggregate information with selected third parties, without disclosing individual names or identifying information.

We will process any data which you provide in completing the online registration or application forms and any further forms, assessments or personal details which you complete or provide to us when using this site in accordance with UK data protection best practice.

As part of the services offered to you through our site, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA").  This may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside of the EEA. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the EEA. If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take the appropriate steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected. In addition, if you use our services while you are outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with those services.  Except as set out in this privacy policy, we will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so (for example, if required to do so by legal process or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime) or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and/or defend our rights, property or personal safety and those of our users/customers etc.

Collection of non-personal information IP addresses

We may collect non-personal information about you such as the type of internet browsers you use or the web site from which you linked to our site. An IP address is an assigned number, similar to a telephone number, which allows your computer to communicate over the Internet. It does not identify you as an individual.  We may also aggregate details which you have submitted to the site (for example, your age and the town where you live). You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service on this web site. However, it does sometimes enable us to identify which organisations have visited this website. We use this information to compile statistical data on the use of our website to track how users navigate through our site in order to enable us to evaluate and improve our site.

Data Protection

We will not collect any personal information about you from your browsing of the website unless you agree to collection and use of your personal data.  The information that you give us is termed "personal data" under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”). We therefore follow the principles set out in that Act when we process your personal data. All the personal data that we obtain from you is held on one of our databases and may be used by one of the Impellam Group plc group companies who shall for the purposes of the Act be a "data controller".

Please note that clicking on to links on our website may result in you transferring to another website, where data privacy practices may be different to that of Global Medics Ltd. Visitors should review the other websites' privacy policies, as we have no control over what happens to information that is submitted to or collected by these third parties.

To enquire about your personal data or, if you have any questions relating to our data privacy, please contact Global Medics Ltd. We will provide you with a readable copy of the personal data that we keep about you within 40 days; we will require proof of your identity.  We allow you to challenge the data that we hold and, where appropriate, you may have the data erased, rectified, amended or completed.  We reserve the right to refuse to provide our visitors with a copy of their personal data but will give reasons for our refusal.  You will be able to challenge our decision to refuse to provide you with a copy of our personal data.

Keeping our records accurate

We aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible.  If you would like to review or change the details you have supplied us with please contact The Data Protection Officer, Impellam Group plc, 800 The Boulevard, Capability Green, Luton LU1 3BA.
