ResourceFlow Group Limited values its relationships with its clients, candidates, contacts and prospective clients and recognises that a failure to protect any of the data it holds would undermine those relationships, and we would fail to honour our obligations. Accordingly, ResourceFlow Group Limited commits to implement this policy effectively and consistently.

This privacy policy describes our principles and approach to privacy, and we shall regularly review both the policy and the practices and procedures which are intended ensure it is effective.

Besides holding the official contact details of individuals acting for the client, the nature of the services being provided may include consequential processing of personal information. ResourceFlow shall store and process data for as long as we provide the client with services, followed by an appropriate retention period following the cessation of any services.

This database may include the name, telephone numbers, email address, professional relevance to us, A copy of their CV and a record of the correspondence we have had with each person.

These individuals may ask to inspect their personal contact details, correct them or unsubscribe from our communications at any time. The email address of individuals wanting to unsubscribe may be retained so that we know that they should never be contacted again.

Children’s Data

ResourceFlow shall not intentionally store the personal information of children under the age of 16. Wherever the personal data of a child may be discovered, its discovery shall be acknowledged and all instances shall be deleted.

Website Data Collection

ResourceFlow follows common practices by analysing web site visits, using cookies, and storing data about each session and the device used. This data is anonymous and not correlated with any personal information. The purpose of gathering this information is to improve the content and design of our website, and not to profile individuals or capture any personal information.

Where we may provide services on our website which require a login and personal identification information, the individual shall be advised that they are giving consent to our creating an individual account for them. The individual shall have the right to close their account with us and request all their data is deleted after a period of appropriate retention.

Information Security Measures

ResourceFlow operates an Information Security Program to protect all the data it holds, including personal information. This means that there are technical controls in place to protect all computers and devices used to store, process and access confidential information, with additional access controls, staff training and regular reviews of these measures.

Encryption

ResourceFlow shall always encrypt the personal data it holds, both in transit and when at rest. Generally, wherever possible and appropriate, encryption techniques shall be deployed to avoid unnecessary risk; as a baseline, it shall be ensured that data is always encrypted across public networks and when stored on devices in the public realm.

Third Party Due Diligence

ResourceFlow uses technical services from external providers, including services on the internet, to make its operations more effective, for example – Google Mail, Invenias Database or processing payments through an online payment provider such as PayPal. In such cases, we will conduct due diligence on the service provider to make sure their data protection measures are sufficient to protect the personal information they will hold on behalf of ResourceFlow.

Before using a service provider for data processing, ResourceFlow shall conduct a risk assessment of the vendor. A contract between ResourceFlow and each data processor shall provide the assurance that personal data is protected appropriately, and individual rights are respected.

Rights of the Individual

Individuals have a right to see any personal information that ResourceFlow may hold about them, and to ask that it is corrected if inaccurate, and even to ask that their personal information is deleted. Any person wishing to exercise these rights should make a formal written ‘subject access request’ to the address at the end of this policy.

In some circumstances, ResourceFlow may be obliged to keep records even after an individual has requested that it is deleted. However, this would be unusual and we would delete any such information as soon as our obligation has expired.

We cannot respond to requests for personal information made by email, because we cannot ensure the privacy of the communication, so requests of this type must be made by post.
