On what legal basis does 9-2-3 process my personal data?
The legal basis on which 9-2-3 processes your personal information is, in most cases, that of our legitimate interest.
However, if you are an individual (or otherwise acting for an organisation which doesn’t have a separate legal personality of its own, such as a partnership), then we will rely on your consent in order to process your personal information for the purposes of:
1. contacting you at annual intervals for the 5 years following our initial discussion, to check whether we can assist you with filling any vacancies and/or to share and discuss news, ideas and innovations relating to the flexible working movement; and
2. sending you our electronic newsletter, containing information about our services, the vacancies we are seeking to fill, flexible working and employment-related matters, and news and industry updates.
What is our legitimate interest in processing this personal data?
Establishment, maintenance and development of a business relationship. We think that we have a legitimate interest in using your personal data to seek to establish, develop and maintain a new business relationship with you as:
(a) a potential client; and/or
(b) a person or as a representative of an organisation whose campaigning, professional activities or industry-related news might be of general interest to our candidates, clients, website visitors and/or social media followers.
The storage of data about you as a business development contact is very important for this process and will be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests. The making of contact with you at annual intervals in the future to offer to provide any assistance to you and/or to discuss ideas and news relating to, and developments in the field of, flexible working is also very important for this process. Where you are a representative of an incorporated organisation such as a company or LLP, this latter activity will also be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Inviting you to participate in our podcasts or social media posts. We believe that we have a legitimate interest in using your personal data to invite you to take part in the series of podcasts which we create, and/or the social media campaigns we run, as we seek to increase the amount of information which is available to the general public on flexible working and other employment-related matters; and
Keeping you updated. We have a legitimate interest in continuing to improve and grow as a business, in supporting and further developing our business relationship with you and, where you are a representative of an incorporated organisation such as a company or LLP, in seeking to keep you informed about our services, the vacancies we are seeking to fill, flexible working and employment-related matters, and news and industry updates; we therefore would like to send you our regular newsletter. However, each such newsletter will contain an option for you to stop receiving such newsletters if you would prefer to do so. You can of course also ask us to stop sending you such newsletters at any time by using the contact details set out at the bottom of this notice.
We will only use your personal data for our legitimate interests in circumstances where we have established that those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights and freedoms.
For how long will we retain your personal data?
We will keep your personal data on our database for 5 years from the date on which we first record it, unless during this 5 year period you become a client, a podcast guest or a social media contributor.
