Sometimes we might be required to use your data for the purpose of investigating or detecting crime and also to comply with UK law.
The legal basis we rely upon to offer these services to you are: A legitimate business interest
2) Legitimate interest
This is where the Company has a legitimate reason to process your data provided it is reasonable and does not go against what you would reasonably expect from us. Where the Company has relied on a legitimate interest to process your personal data our legitimate interests are as follows:

Some of these third parties are also controllers responsible for processing your Personal Information for their purposes, for example, HM Revenue & Customs is a controller for tax purposes.

In addition, we limit access to your Personal Information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to do so.
The Company will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose we collect it. The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, require us to keep work-seeker records for at least one year from record creation or when we last provided you with work-finding services.
