Privacy Policy

At Comity Recruitment (“Comity Recruitment”), protecting your privacy is very important to us. Our goal is to treat the personal information you provide to us with the utmost respect, and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy explains how personal information about you may be collected, used, or disclosed as a consequence of your activities on this Site. We urge you to read it carefully.
By accessing, using and/or downloading materials from or sending or posting materials to, this Site, you agree on your own behalf and on behalf of each entity on whose behalf you act, to the terms of this Privacy Policy and to the practices for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information as described here.

The following is a condition of use of this website. The submission of information or use of the website is deemed acceptance of these terms.
All information supplied by candidates (individuals seeking engagement’s, including temporary workers) and clients (organisations paying fees or using free services) is edited, coded and retained within our computerised data systems. Editing and coding is used to standardise the information into acceptable and retrievable formats.
All information supplied is retained until we are requested to remove this information or at our discretion.
Access to our computerised systems is protected by differing levels of passwords. Our computer users (often called data processors) have restricted access to the information. Additional security procedures are designed to control access to data (e.g. the printing of data lists) and we have imposed a restriction on staff “taking home” copy files. Such safeguards do not guarantee security of the data (e.g. hacking)
Some aspects of the personal data stored on our computer systems is transmitted via electronic mail and this includes the sending of electronic mail to countries outside of the EEA. This data may or may not be encoded.

Personal Information Collection, Use and Distribution to Third Parties Generally
There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide information about yourself or your business to assist us in meeting your various needs. This information may be used for the following purposes: answering your questions, providing you with services you have requested, giving producers and developers of the Site information that is useful in determining appropriate new features, content and services, to provide advertisers with aggregate, not individual, information about our customers, or informing you of additional services or job opportunities provided by Comity Recruitment or by our business partners, that may interest you.
To provide these services, we may need to ask you directly to provide, among other things, your name, mailing address, postal code, email address and phone number (“Registration Information”). You may also elect to apply on-line to a job posting (free of charge) OR to purchase one of our services. Purchasing services with us may require us to gather additional personal information (including credit or debit card information, where appropriate).
At times, we also conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles, and experience of our visitors. You will be given the option to participate in such surveys. Unless you request to receive the results of the survey via email, no personal information is requested during such surveys and all information is used on an aggregated basis only. If, during the registration process, you indicate you would like us to keep you updated on new site developments and information about our services or about offerings from Comity Recruitment, we will send you these updates by email.
If you contact Comity Recruitment we may keep a record of that correspondence. We do not collect the email addresses of those who communicate with Comity Recruitment via email. We use the information provided only so that we may respond to the email. We do not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market our services to children.
When you provide personal information to us, we may communicate and disclose it to third parties for the purpose of fulfilling, servicing and completing your requests and the transactions related to it. These third parties may be in the UK or in other parts of the world. By registering with Comity Recruitment, you agree that your information may be shared with third parties for the purpose of fulfilling, servicing and completing your requests and transactions related to it.
We may also aggregate statistics that we gather about the visitors to the Site, sales, traffic patterns, and services and provide these statistics to third parties; however, when we do, these statistics will not include any personal information that identifies individuals.
We may also use, disclose and communicate your personal information if required to do so by law including by an order of any court. Although we use all reasonable means to ensure that the information you provide to us is not used by third parties for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy, Comity Recruitment is not responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.

CV Collection Policy
As part of the services we provide, you may choose to provide us with your CV, to be viewed by our staff members and potential employer who access this Website. In addition to the provisions of this Privacy Policy, the collection, use and distribution of your CV is governed by the Terms & Conditions of Use.
CVs are accessed by our staff who seek to find you employment with third parties (“Third Parties”). Staff are not permitted to disclose information outside our organization or beyond the Third Party, as applicable. Recruiters are also required to have entered into an agreement with Third Parties that requires such Third Parties to use your CV solely for the purpose of filling a job within the Third Party for which the information was provided and not disclosing your CV outside the organization. However, although Comity Recruitment deals only with reputable organizations, we cannot guarantee that all Employers and Third Parties will adhere to the limitations we impose on them. If at any time you would like your CV removed from our Website, you may do so by using the “delete CV” function.
Some job postings which are posted on the Comity Recruitment Site allow you to follow links to where you can apply, and provide your CV, for a specific job posting. In some cases, such applications are still within the Comity Recruitment Site and its control. If you are not asked to login using your Comity Recruitment Registration User ID and password, however, then both the application process, and your CV are outside the Comity Recruitment Site and Comity Recruitment’s control. In such cases you will be providing your CV directly to the Employer or Recruiter and your CV will be subject to their privacy policy. Comity Recruitment is not responsible for the privacy practices of such Employer or Recruiter. In such cases, we encourage you to review the Employer or Recruiter’s privacy policy.
Candidates should note that a curriculum vitae (CV howsoever obtained and subsequently passed to our clients) may contain information which could identify the candidate. As such, we do not accept liability for disclosure arising from a curriculum vitae supplied by us, to our clients, if the disclosure arose as a result of service.
Although we use all reasonable means to protect your personal information, Comity Recruitment is not responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.

Purchase of Record
From time to time we “purchase” records from recruitment web sites. This information is only obtained in furtherance to a specific request from a client. Once stored on our computerised system the data is processed in the same way as all other records and is afforded the same degree of protection. COMITY RECRUITMENT cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data obtained from these sources, but will take immediate steps to erase or amend data which is known to be inaccurate or appears to be misrepresenting the candidate.

Client
We consider that all information supplied to us by a potential or existing candidate, (including CV’s and application forms, received electronically or otherwise) is provided for our exclusive use in assisting employers to find potential workers. As such, the provider of the information warrants that the information is correct, that the supplier has authority to provide the information and that COMITY RECRUITMENT may use the information in the manner our trained recruitment Staff feel appropriate for the purpose (i.e. in pursuit of seeking potential applicants or workers).
Various statues (laws) require us to retain some information, even after a candidate has requested to be “removed from our database”. Such records are retained to ensure our compliance with the legislation only and is reduced to the minimum required under the legislation
How Is Your Personal Information Secured and Protected?
Where Comity Recruitment considers it appropriate, Comity Recruitment uses encryption and/or authentication tools among other methods to protect certain web-based personal information. E-mails you send us are not necessarily secure when they are transmitted to us. If your communication is sensitive or includes confidential information such as a credit card number, you may want to provide it by post or via the telephone instead.
We instruct our employees with access to your personal information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business. The only employees who have access to your personal information are administrative personnel. Employees who misuse customer personal information may be subject to disciplinary action.
