Lancor provides executive search services to clients who retain us to find executives, board members and advisors for their businesses.
Lancor takes your personal data seriously. This policy:
Through the different stages of our search, we collect the information necessary to assess your professional experience against our clients’ requirements. This information may include CVs/resumés you have sent us, educational records, references and outlines of your work history, including summaries available on publicly-available web sites, including social media sites, such as LinkedIn.
We do not normally collect Special Category Data (or what the ICO calls “sensitive personal data”). However, in the exceptional case in which we may be required to collect and process sensitive personal data, we would only collect it from you, and further process it, when you have given your explicit consent.
The following are the different sources from which we may collect personal data about you:
We use your personal data to assess whether your skills, experience and education are a fit with a client’s search requirements. We will initially collect basic information about you, such as contact details, current title and, if available, past professional experiences and then pass this on to our client. If your profile is a match with our client’s requirements, we will then be collecting more information from you at the screening and interview stage.
We keep your information in accordance as follows:
Candidate data: 6.5 years from the last update
Client contact details: 6.5 years from the last update
We also may elect not to keep your personal information on file.
Your personal data is gathered and assessed in order to determine if you are a good fit with our client’s requirements. It may also be shared with the client. We may also verify the information you have provided and, in these cases, we may share that information with our client.
For prospective candidates, referees and clients: our processing is necessary for our legitimate interests in that we need the information in order to be able to assess suitability for potential roles, to identify potential candidates and to contact clients and referees.
If you are shortlisted as a candidate, this may involve the processing of more detailed personal data, including Special Category Data (e.g. health information) that you may provide or others may provide about you. In that case, we will always ask for your consent before undertaking such processing.
For clients: we may also rely on our processing as necessary to perform a contract for you, for example, in contacting you.
If you do not provide us the necessary personal data, or ask us not to process your personal data, we may not be able to consider you as a candidate for future searches.
No, Lancor does not carry out automated profiling.
To better match your professional profile with current searches, we may transfer your personal data to clients and Lancor offices in countries outside the EEA. These countries’ privacy laws may be different from those in your home country. When we transfer data to a country which has not been deemed to provide adequate data protection standards, we always have security measures and approved model clauses in place to protect your personal data. To find out more about how we safeguard your information as related to transfers, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal data. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country.
What does this mean?
1. The right to be informed
2. The right of access
This is so you’re aware and can verify that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection laws.
3. The right to rectification
You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
4. The right to erasure
This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information if there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
5. The right to restrict processing
You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to ensure the restriction is respected in future.
6. The right to object to processing
You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be kept informed of Lancor news or be invited to events).
7. The right to lodge a complaint
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with your national data protection regulator.
8. The right to withdraw consent
If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.
