Your Privacy and GenTec.

What Data do we Store?

We collect personal data about you to help in the recruitment process. This data consists of information such as your name, address, Email addresses, and employment details. We may also request further information which may include bank details, your right to work, employment references/history and future job preferences. Information about your bank and your right to work is only seen by a limited number of GenTec employees.

We are an employment business and are entitled to obtain background information and request credit checks and other lawful checks if required by our clients. In some cases, we may outsource this to a third party.

Personal information provided by you is retained as long as the purpose for which the data was collected continues. It is then archived or destroyed unless its retention is required to satisfy any audit, legal, regulatory or accounting requirements or to protect GenTec’s interests. GenTec will not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others unless you have given us your express permission.

GenTec is registered as a data controller with the office of the Information Commissioner. This requires us to follow the Data Protection Act 1998. The 1998 Act provides for the regulation of the processing of information relating to individuals who are the subjects of personal data. “Personal data” includes all data, which relates to a living individual who can be identified from the data and which includes any expression of opinion about the individual and any indication of the intention of the data controller or any other person in respect of the individual.

The security of your data is extremely important to us.

It may also be included in management information used to monitor recruitment initiatives and equal opportunities policies.

Details may also be disclosed if required by law or for the purposes of GenTec’s business requirements (e.g. to auditors or third party service suppliers).

If your application is unsuccessful, we may try to find you employment or work with alternative clients and may, therefore, disclose your details to other prospective employers and clients in connection with the recruitment process (which for these purposes includes the process of gaining employment and any ongoing administrative process involved, unless you tell us otherwise.)
