Taking your privacy seriously

Your privacy

We care about your privacy and want you to feel confident about how we use information you give us on our website.  While we don't change our Data Protection Policy often it's worth checking when you visit our sites that you're happy with our current policy statement. Any changes in our privacy police will be prospective only - they won't apply retrospectively unless they legally have to.  At our website, we provide information about our company and its products and services. We may also offer opportunities for employment.

This policy sets out the different areas where user privacy is concerned and outlines the obligations & requirements of the users, the website and website owners. Furthermore, the way our website processes, stores and protects user data and information will also be detailed within this policy.

 

PERSONAL INFORMATION

Whilst using our website, software applications or services, you may be required to provide personal information (name, address, email, account details, etc.). We will use this information to administer our website, applications, client databases and marketing material. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, as adopted into law of the United Kingdom in the Data Protection Act 2018. Further, by providing telephone, fax and email details, you consent to [company name] contacting you using that method. You have the right at any time to request a copy of the personal information we hold on you. Should you wish to receive a copy of this, or would like to be removed from our database, please contact us at data@quadratek.net

 

How do we COLLECT information?

Quadratek collects information in two possible ways:

  • When you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”)

When you sign up for our site, purchase our products or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.

  • When you give us permission to obtain from other accounts (“User Authorised Data”)

Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media or by choosing to send us your location data when accessing our website from your smartphone.

Or we may collect your personal information from another source such as a third-party data provider such as subscription-based Job Sites and Job Boards and Social Media sites such as Linked In.

 

Do we use cookies?

We do, and they’re governed by the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 (UK Regulations).

A cookie is information a website stores on your computer so it can remember something about you later. We may use cookies to remember your preferred settings for using our site, for example, a high visibility setting. If you disable cookies in your browser settings, you’ll have to action any changes you make to your View settings each time you visit our site.

Our cookies don’t contain any personal details about you that others could read and understand, such as your name and address.  Our cookies collect generic information for Google Analytics. This is anonymous data such as:

  • how many people have visited the site
  • what websites visitors have come from
  • which pages they visit on our site

When looked at collectively, this information helps us improve the site.  Continued use of our site implies acceptance of these terms.

OVERSEES TRANSFERS

The Company may transfer only the information you provide to us to countries outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) for the purposes of providing you with work-finding services. We will take steps to ensure adequate protections are in place to ensure the security of your information. The EEA comprises the EU member states plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

 

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA FOR?

Quadratek will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide as needed to be able to provide the Services to you, or (in the case of any contact you may have with our support team) for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis and archive records of work carried out.

If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have ceased utilising products or services from Quadratek.

The Company will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary. Different laws require us to keep different data for different periods of time.

The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, require us to keep work-seeker records for at least one year from (a) the date of their creation or (b) after the date on which we last provide you with work-finding services.

We must also keep your payroll records, holiday pay, sick pay and pensions auto-enrolment records for as long as is legally required by HMRC and associated national minimum wage, social security and tax legislation.

 

SUBMITTING DATA

Quadratek will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of emailing us, submitting a CV, filling out the site registration form, to anyone.
