The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has replaced the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC).
Data Protection Overview
Data will not be shared with third parties apart from those using the CV forwarding service. With this, permission is gained to forward a customer’s CV and job targets to recruitment firms.
Will GDPR affect how I use CVtrumpet’s service?
The new regulations will not affect your ability to use our services: to add or edit your CV and Profile or use our CV forwarding service.
Looking after candidate data
When candidates register with CVtrumpet, they are looking to be contacted by executive and £50K+ recruiters regarding job vacancies. It is in the candidates’ (and our) interest that we continue to do this.
We give candidates control over how they wish to be contacted, including the options to unsubscribe from our newsletter (a link is in each newsltter) and to delete their account (CV and Profile) entirely. To delete their account, candidates can message us here and this is fully processed in 2 to 7 days business days. We remove all of the candidate details and CV from our service.
How long is the data kept for?
Candidate data is held until the account is deleted.
We suggest that recruiters are familiar with GDPR regulations as they are responsible for protecting the data they control and process.
If a candidate deletes their details from CVtrumpet, what action is required by recruiters that have been forwarded the CV
When requested, CVtrumpet will email the recruiters and ask them to remove your details.
In what location is our data stored?
CVtrumpet’s server and business is located in the UK.
How does CVtrumpet keep its data secure?
We use industry best practice security including data encryption at rest, a secure server with the site running on https, and authentication controls to protect against the unauthorised access of the data we hold.
