Data Privacy Statement

How we use your information


This statement outlines how Cadence Innova Ltd [Cadence] processes your personal data.


How will Cadence use the information that you provide?


Personal data that you supply to us will be used for one of the following, collectively the ‘Purposes’:


(i)                  the purpose of managing your contract with Cadence;

(ii)                 CV profiling for resourcing

(iii)                Marketing purposes


Cadence are processing your personal data on the basis of legitimate interest, that it is necessary for progressing the Purposes and the performance of any associated contract, and also due to Cadence’s legal obligations.


The legitimate interests pursued by Cadence are as follows:


a) Managing your contract of employment or engagement where relevant


We will treat all personal data (whether sensitive or not) as private and confidential except where we are permitted or required by law to make a disclosure or where the disclosure is necessary for the Purposes.


Unless Cadence are required by law, you are under no obligation to provide your personal data to Cadence for the purposes. Should you choose not to provide your personal data, or you request that Cadence deletes your personal data, Cadence will be unable to engage or employ you.


b) Marketing


We collect two types of data for marketing purposes:


• Name, Email address and Company Name through consensual opt in forms

• User behaviour which we collect through cookies and google analytics. Information on how we collect these can be found in our Cookie Policy.


We use these to improve our services and to occasionally send you emails with Cadence news, events updates and insights.


How long will Cadence keep your data for?


a) Employment & Engagement


Where you are engaged to provide services, Cadence will need to hold your personal data for the length of any assignment and for as long thereafter as may be required to ensure compliance with statutory and other obligations. Typically, this is 7 years after the point that your last assignment ends, however in some limited circumstances this may be longer.


b) Marketing

Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we’ll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:


• Whether our users have the ability to access and delete the data we keep by emailing us or unsubscribing.

• Whether our users would reasonably expect that we would retain the data until they ask us to remove it.
