Other sources of Data

While in most cases you will provide your Personal Data yourself, there may be cases when we will request Personal Data about you from third parties for recruitment purposes (e.g. your education establishments, references from previous employers etc.).

We collect your Personal Data through:

In addition to the Personal Data set out above, we will collect the following Personal Data from social network sites:

  • Name, headline and summary, job title, current employer, employment history, recommendations, connections and contact details made publicly available (such as phone number and email address). Your “likes”, “comments”, publications, photos, videos and broader network recommendations are not collected unless you have submitted them voluntarily to us to support your job search and applications. 

We may also obtain your contact details from publicly available sources, including content that you have made public on social network sites or similar sites to make an initial contact with you for recruitment purposes. When we contact you in this way, you will be given the option to exercise your right to ask us to cease sending information about careers and opportunities with CMTS and/or to have your Personal Data removed from our systems; except for minimum details to note that you opted out and so to avoid contacting you again about our job and market updates.

How we use your Personal Data:

With a focus for recruitment purposes, including:

  • to identify and contact you;
  • to determine your suitability for current or potential future roles with our hiring company clients or our own firm;
  • when providing courtesy updates on market trends and developments that are relevant to you/your profession and job vacancies generally being serviced by CMTS

Where we seek to monitor and implement measures to improve our recruitment initiatives and/or monitor compliance against our policies such as equal opportunities, we would use anonymised and aggregated data (e.g. total number of applicants and country of residence in a given period).

We may use data analytics software for matching your profile with roles with us. When your profile is matched with a role, an email notification regarding that role may be sent to your email address.

We shall not use your Personal Data for any other purposes other than those stated in this Statement or as otherwise notified to you.

Who we share your Personal Data with:

For the purposes stated above, this Data will only be accessible to authorised staff within CMTS and to hiring leaders within the prospective employer company we have discussed with you, and secured your permission to explore employment options with.   

In addition, we may disclose your Personal Data to the following third parties in any country:

How long do we retain your Personal Data

If you submit a job application and are unsuccessful, CMTS may retain your Personal Data for a period of 24 months from our final communication to you in order to match your skills to future job vacancies being managed by CMTS, except if there is any objection from you or such other period as required by applicable laws.

CMTS may also retain your basic contact information for the purposes of inviting you to join our Talent Network, where you will receive information about CMTS, invitations to events and/or receive information regarding job opportunities that may be relevant to your skills.  If you choose not to join the Talent Network, we will remove your Personal Data from the Talent Network database, except for minimum details to note that you opted out and so avoid contacting you again about the Talent Network.
