Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it's treated securely.
All of the systems we use at LaunchPad Recruits are GDPR compliant.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enable you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Transferring your information outside of Europe
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union ("EU"). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you're agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
We will not export your personal data from the EEA without your approval other than to data processors under our instructions, or, if you are being interviewed and are located in the EEA with an interviewer located outside the EEA, to the interviewer.
If you require the use of any candidate support services, then this may require the transfer of your personal data to support service providers based outside the EEA. By making use of the services provided to you under this Agreement, you consent to such transfers of your personal data.
