Privacy Notice, Terms & Conditions

Data Protection

The Data Protection Policy employed by Harrison Scott Associates has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the finest quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our clients, candidates, suppliers, associates and staff. The Policy guides how we collect, store and use information about individuals and organisations. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the changing needs of everyone with whom we deal.

Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection:

  • Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, billing information, employment status and 'click stream' data that tracks visitor activity on a Web site or online service.
  • A subset of that category, Sensitive Data, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Clients' confidential data (eg. job description), individuals' home telephone numbers, Bank Account, Income Tax and National Insurance numbers, interview notes, CVs, etc. If your relationship with us includes providing HARRISON SCOTT with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute your Sensitive Data outside of HARRISON SCOTT if you specifically request us not to do so. The act of submitting your CV to Harrison Scott is your agreement to allow Harrison Scott to distribute the information contained therein to appropriate parties, i.e. potential employers. We will not use this data for any purpose out with our sphere of interest.

HARRISON SCOTT collects Personally-Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data only when there is a legitimate business need to do so.

Our Policy provides the following:

  • We reserve the right to publish any information given to us by a Client or potential Client on the basis that precise geographical location and to the best of our ability, all references identifying the company are removed from the content of the job description.
  • We reserve the right to reveal the name of the company we are recruiting for, only to suitable candidates unless instructed in writing not to do so at the point of a vacancy being given to us.
  • Notice: We will inform you about why we are collecting Personally-Identifiable Information and how we intend to use it. We need to collect and store your name, address, and other basic Personally-Identifiable Information, for example, to provide you with the service you requested. This information also enables us to develop and customise services better to meet your needs and preferences and to bring to your attention opportunities available through HARRISON SCOTT.
  • Security: We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of your Personally-Identifiable Information;
  • Review and Correction: We are continuing to enhance our procedures to enable you to review and correct, upon request, the Personally-Identifiable Information we collect from you. Currently, we need you to make such a request in a manner that can be verified;
  • Registration: HARRISON SCOTT is registered with the Office of the Information Commissioner (formerly the Data Protection Commissioner) http://www.ico.gov.uk/ , number Z8080484. This grants HARRISON SCOTT the right to store and process personal data on individuals for commercial use within the EU and other selected countries such as Switzerland and the Nordic countries that have also subscribed to the EU controls on data use.

HARRISON SCOTT will not sell personal data in any form, including mailing lists. From time to time HARRISON SCOTT conducts surveys on market trends, pay levels etc. Individual responses are never published or revealed - only summarised data are released.

HARRISON SCOTT will continue to oversee implementation of and compliance with our Policy and will adapt the Policy to reflect changes in technology and the expectations of everyone with whom we deal. To ensure that we are following our stated Policy, we also conduct periodic and random audits of our Web sites and other systems.

The HARRISON SCOTT Data Protection Policy has been developed out of respect for the privacy preferences and choices of our candidates, suppliers, clients, and staff. We have established procedures to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to address your concerns. If you have any questions or comments on HARRISON SCOTT and its data protection policy please contact one of our Directors. If you have a complaint about our handling of data, you have the right to involve the Information Commissioner - but please inform us first, preferably by e-mail to george@harrison-scott.co.uk , so that we may have the opportunity to address any issues directly with you.
