The Types of Data CTA 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 CVs containing career histories.


We collect this data when it is provided by a client or candidate making direct contact with CTA. We also collect it from publicly available sources such as corporate websites, social networking sites and Companies House.


How CTA Uses the Information it Collects

CTA uses the information it collects in a number of ways, primarily to notify candidates about suitable clients’ current vacancies and to enquire about their career status. We may also notify clients about suitable candidates seeking opportunities and enquire about suitable vacancies.


Sharing Information

CTA does not share, sell or rent personal information to third parties for marketing or any other purposes. During applications 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 CTA and a client;

• A legal obligation which CTA is subject to and must comply with;

• A legitimate interest carried out by CTA, 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.

You also have the right to restrict and/or object to the use and processing of your personal information and can ask us to delete some or all of your personal information.

Marketing Communications

We may use your contact details to provide you with information about candidates seeking opportunities and/or current vacancies via email, phone or text if we think they may be of interest to you. You can opt out of these communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link found at the end of all CTA emails, or by contacting us directly.


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. CTA regularly reviews its data to ensure all the information it holds is accurate and up to date. If you have unsubscribed from our marketing communications, some of your details may be retained to ensure you are no longer contacted by CTA.
