You can browse the PiR web pages without having to reveal any personal information. Our website is designed to give visitors a confidential means of gathering information about us and our services.
We always endeavour to comply with the requirements of the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) concerning collection and processing of your personal data. If you register as a candidate with PiR Limited, you thereby give express consent to PiR using that information for our legitimate business purposes and to the storage of such information on our database. If you submit your CV via the website you will be added as a candidate onto our database system, if appropriate.
PiR processes data in line with GDPR and this tends to fall into the categories of ‘express consent’ or ‘legitimate interest’. Under the GDPR definition of legitimate interest PiR includes relevant and appropriate relationships i.e. those with candidates or clients. This includes potential clients who are in discussions with PiR. PiR may need to record this data for future reference.
PiR work on many opportunities at different times and any one of these could be suitable to your background and experience. We use our database to identify and contact candidates about positions and so keep personal details to enable us to do this. If at any point you would like to review the personal information we are holding or request removal or alteration of that information please contact us via email and we will pass your request to the Data Controller who will respond to you directly. PiR have an obligation to make relevant enquiries to verify the identity of the person requesting the changes/removal of data. Once verified PiR will process the request in accordance with our internal policy and inform you when the action has been completed.
All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers via our online database. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, any transmission of data 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 of data held on our servers and our database servers and work closely with the database provider to ensure robust platforms.
