What's Fircroft doing about GDPR?

Like postLikeLabel * DEFAULT * en-GB
Have you been receiving loads of emails asking you to ‘opt-in’ to their marketing emails? 

If so, you might have wondered why. 

The reason is the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (more commonly referred to as GDPR). This is a piece of European legislation that is replacing the old DPA (Data Protection Act). 
What's Fircroft doing about GDPR?
It aims to provide you with more control over your personal data. 

At Fircroft it means that we will only be allowed to hold information about you where you have provided explicit consent for us to do so. And we have to be able to prove that you have provided this consent e.g. in the form of an opt-in on a webpage, or an example of written consent. 

That’s not all. Here’s some other key aspects of the regulation: 

  • We'll be obliged to ensure that your data is kept up-to-date.

  • We will only be able to hold data for the purpose for which it was collected (e.g. for the purpose of applying for a particular job or setting up job notifications).

  • You can ask for your personal data to be deleted at any time.

  • We will never be able to hold sensitive data that can be traced back to you such as your religious beliefs, sexuality, political beliefs etc.

  • We cannot hold your data indefinitely. We have reviewed our retention periods to ensure they are fair and in line with our GDPR related processes.

As you can see, it's a rigorous regulation designed to protect you and your data.

Now that GDPR has come into effect Fircroft will be compliant and adhering to the points above. 

So, that’s what Fircroft is doing about GDPR!
