The Types of Data Damhurst Collects: We collect contact details such as first and last name, job title, company name, address, email address and telephone number. In the case of candidates, we may also hold employment histories. We collect this data when it is provided by a client or candidate making direct contact with Damhurst. We also collect it through our own research and from publicly available sources such as corporate websites, social networking sites and Companies House.
Sharing Information: Damhurst does not share, sell or rent personal information to third parties for marketing or any other purposes. During searches, we will only share relevant information between our clients and candidates once the involved parties have provided their express consent. In some cases, we might have to pass your information to third parties if required to by law.
Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data Includes:
• A client’s or candidate’s specific consent to use their personal information;
• The performance of a contract between Damhurst and a client;
• A legal obligation which Damhurst is subject to and must comply with;
• A legitimate interest carried out by Damhurst, which can be considered reasonable.
Legitimate Interests Include:
• Providing our clients and candidates with the services they have requested;
• Notifications to our clients and candidates which we believe will be of interest;
• Collecting personal information to ensure the data we hold on our clients and candidates is accurate and up to date.

Keeping Your Information: We keep your information for no longer than is required for the purposes explained in this policy. The amount of time we keep this information will depend on legal obligations and our operational demands.
