What personal information will you collect about me?

We may collect the following data from you when you use our products or services:

  • Cookie data when you use our website (see Cookie section 7 below for further information)
  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • If you are a candidate, we will take a copy of your CV

We collect such information about you when you make an enquiry or use our recruitment services. We may also collect some personal information from you if you sign up for marketing information or when you voluntarily take part in chats or message boards related to recruitment.

This policy also relates to our use of any personal information you provide us by phone, SMS, email, in letters and other correspondence, and in person.

How will you use the information you collect about me?

We will use the personal information you supply to respond to your enquiries, to manage the work we do for you, and to tell you about other services that may be of interest to you.

Will you share my personal information with anyone else?

Generally, we will use your information within Highview Search and Selection and will only share it outside where you have requested it or given us your express consent.

If you are seeking job roles, we will seek your permission before passing your details onto prospective employers.

Exceptions to this are:

  • where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies)
  • we may share with third party sites (e.g. LinkedIn and Twitter) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites, as set out in section 7 – cookies.

We require these third parties to comply strictly with our instructions and we require that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.

Data Security

We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorisation. We also allow access to your personal data only to those partners who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they must keep it confidential.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach if we are legally required to.

How long will you keep my information?

We will hold your personal information on our systems for six years if we place you in a job role. We may hold onto your information longer if you have an ongoing relationship with us, or as is relevant to any contract you hold with us.

If you are a candidate who has not been successfully placed, we delete your information after two years.

How can I access or delete my information?

You can request a copy of the information we hold on you at any time by writing to us. We will need evidence of your identity in order to process such a request and we will respond to your request within 30 days of the date you send it to us. If we are unable to supply your information within that time, we will let you know. We may withhold personal information that you request to the extent permitted by law.

You can also request that all information we hold on you is deleted, subject to where we need to keep it for legal reasons (e.g. accounting purposes or for legal disputes).

If there are inaccuracies with the personal information we hold about you, please let us know and we will correct your records.

Web browser cookies

a) What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone web browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your web browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Similar technologies are also often used within emails to understand whether the email has been read or if any links have been clicked. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on our website. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time in your browser’s settings.

During the course of any visit to our website, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

b) How do you use cookies?

Information supplied by cookies can help us to understand the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. We use this type of information to help improve the services we provide users.

We use session cookies. These are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any personal data from your computer.

If you have any concerns about the way that we use cookies or respect your settings, then please contact us at

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time so you may wish to check it each time you submit personal information to us. The date of the most recent revisions will appear on this page.
