WHITE CLARKE GROUP

Privacy policy

This policy explains how we use and protect the personal data you give us when using this website.

When it comes to your data, we don’t take our responsibilities lightly. We only collect and use personal details for good reasons. We’ll never sell, rent or make your personal information public – we hate spam as much as you do! Data privacy and security is at the heart of how we work at White Clarke Group.

The information we collect

We collect two types of information about you: personal details you give us and data that’s automatically gathered.
More detailLess detail

Personal details we might take from you include your name, job title, company, email and phone number – details you give when you ask to be contacted by White Clarke Group or want to download an article, for example.

If you’re applying for a job with us, we’ll also collect your work history details and the other information you have on your CV. We’ll always be clear about what we’re asking for and why – and will ask you to explicitly agree to giving us the information we need.

This site automatically registers your IP address and geographical location. We use Google Analytics and ClickDimensions to collect data that helps us understand how many people are visiting our website – and how they find and use our web pages. We may use this kind of navigational information alone or combined with your personal info to give you tailored information about our services or other things we think you might be interested in.

How we use your data

We use your data to give you the best possible experience of White Clarke Group.

More specifically, we use your data to:

  • Keep you up to date with the latest content we’ve published that might be relevant to you
  • Tell you about White Clarke Group events we think would be useful or interesting
  • Ask for your feedback and opinions through online surveys
  • Improve our site to give you a better experience when you visit
  • Send you information that you’ve requested
  • Improve our content and tailor it to your needs

How long we keep your data

We only keep your details as long as we need them to be able to give you information and services, in keeping with data protection laws.
More detailLess detail

We keep both personal and automatically collected details of how you use this website for four years. At the end of that period, your data is automatically deleted.

If you’ve applied for a job with us

We hold on to application data for up to a year – either from our recruitment decision (if you applied for a specific vacancy) or from when you gave us your information as an open application. Under employment law, we have to keep all application data for at least six months.

If you didn’t get the job you applied for, we may send you details of other relevant posts during the 12 months that we have your information. At the end of this period, we’ll delete your information.

If you become a White Clarke Group employee, the data we gathered about you during the recruitment process will become part of your HR file. We’ll let you know during your employment how long we’ll keep your information after you leave White Clarke Group.

Sharing your data

We only share your personal data for very good reasons. We’ll never sell or rent it to anyone.
More detailLess detail

We may share your information with other companies that perform services for us, but we’ll only share essential data and will always get your permission first. We share your data with our partner companies on the understanding that they’ll use your details for legitimate interests, in line with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

The only other time we may share your data is when we’re required to by law. If a government or law enforcement agency asks for information about our users, we’re legally obliged to provide it.
