GDPR Policy for Go-Connect 

Go-Connect is a trade by name for Global Opportunities in IT Ltd (Go.) who needs to gather data about individuals to perform our business.

These can include customers, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organisation has a relationship with or may need to contact.

This policy describes how personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Clause 1 – How we receive information and how we may use it

Go. receive your personal data when you apply to one of our job adverts or directly for an advertised role via our website; when you apply to be a candidate for whom we can facilitate a job search or via a third party when you respond to a job post placed by Go. on a job board on behalf of a third party client.

This statement explains how we process personal data received into our organisation. When you register with Go. you MUST consent to us collecting and storing your personal information. You will not be able to submit your enquiry or details to Bandwidth without consenting to us storing your personal data. This may include but is not restricted to your name; contact details; address; employment history; mobility and education.

During telephone conversations and face to face interviews we may collect personal information with regard to employment preferences, strengths and work experience which may be stored on your personal record. This information facilitates our ability to support your job search and to provide a basis for recommendation when short-listing candidates for a particular role. By explicitly providing consent when you register with Go. you are providing permission for our storage of this information. Go. will never share personal information or a Curriculum Vitae with a third party without your explicit consent.

Due to the nature of recruitment, a significant number of candidates reconnect with our organisation periodically when they are interested in a new opportunity. It is not uncommon for this to occur years after we have placed them in a role. For this reason, your consent includes explicit consent to retain your personal details until such time as you wish us to delete your records from our database or refrain from further engagement.

If you do not consent to Go. storing your personal data or setting up a personal registration for you, please do not submit your Curriculum Vitae for any roles advertised on our website. We are unable to process your application without receipt of consent to process and store your personal information.

Clause 2 – Job Alerts

We may on occasion contact candidates stored in our database who are not actively looking for a new role. By providing consent to our storage of your personal data you are also providing consent to us contacting you if we receive details of a role which specifically matches your career aspirations. We will do this only where you, the potential candidate, meet a detailed job description provided by one of our clients, and where you have provided explicit consent to us storing and using your data.
