It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

We are an online application provider and applicant tracking system (ATS) for assisting with recruitment processes.
We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified our legitimate interests where appropriate.
Note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful basis depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal basis on which we are relying to process your personal data where more than one basis has been set out in the table below.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Professional, Eligibility, Technical, Usage, and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which additional services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will typically inform you (before collecting your personal data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. We will obtain your explicit opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third-party for marketing purposes.
You can exercise your right to accept or prevent such processing on our platform. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
Our platform may, from time to time, contain links to and from websites of our partner networks, advertisers, and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies and practices. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to such websites.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to receive an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We will disclose your personal data to third parties:
The lawful bases for third party processing of your personal data include:
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We will only use access to allow you to write and send Gmail messages and attachments from your Candidly account and read only messages from your Gmail account associated to messages sent from your Candidly account. We will not store or transfer this email data to any third party under any circumstances.
Candidly's use and transfer to any other app of information received from Google APIs will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.
The personal data which we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the UK or European Economic Area (“EEA”). Such personal data may be transferred to third parties outside of the UK or EEA for the purpose of our recruitment services and may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK or EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, our recruitment services and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storage, and/or processing. Whenever we transfer your personal data outside of the UK or EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely in accordance with this privacy notice, which includes implementing at least one of the following safeguards:
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our platform; any transmission is at your own risk.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered, or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data in accordance with our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so
We understand our legal duty to retain accurate data and only retain your personal data for as long as we require it for our legitimate business interests and that you are happy for us to do so. We may retain your personal data for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or reporting requirements. We may also retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
We may archive and store part or all of your personal data, or retain it on our financial systems only. We may pseudonymise parts of your personal data, particularly following a request for suppression or deletion of your data, to ensure that we do not re-enter your personal data in our platform, unless requested to do so.
We may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you and becomes non-personal data) for archival and analytics purposes, and we may store, process, and use this non-personal data indefinitely without further notice to you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting, or other requirements.

In certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data which include the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any other right). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive, or, alternatively, we may refuse to comply with such a request.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any other right). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one (1) month. Occasionally, it might take us longer than one (1) month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
