Privacy Policy

About Boston Link

We are Boston Link, a recruitment company operating from Malta, UK and Isle of Man. We believe in maximising your privacy and confidentiality, in keeping with good business practice and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). This policy explains what personal data we use, as well as why and how we use it and what it means for you.

How do we collect personal details?

We use specific actions on our website to collect personal information. We collect details when you get in touch with us about our products and services by using our contact forms, or when you register on our site.

What type of information do we collect and how is it stored?

The personal details we are most likely to collect are your name, age, gender, postal address, email, telephone number, job history, financial information and technical data such as IP address, login data and browser type and the pages you interacted with on our website and when you did so. Beyond that, we may collect and hold certain sensitive personal information. Please be aware that on occasion, we may be required to collect details beyond the below list in order to adhere to contractual obligations with our clients;

How do we use your information?

These are the ways we are most likely to use your information:

Your personal information will be retained in our system for as long as we need it, or as long as you have specified in a contractual agreement or until such time that you contact us and ask us to remove it.

Who is able to gain access to your details?

You can rest assured that under no circumstances will we sell or rent your information out to any third parties, and won’t give out access to your details for marketing purposes.

Upon your verbal or written consent, we will submit details we hold on you to our clients as part of the job search process, and to third parties for the purpose of pre-employment screening, criminal checks and credit checking purposes as part of your job application. Boston Link will always receive your explicit consent before submittal to any client or third parties.

The ways you can access and edit your details

It is within your rights to ask Boston Link for your own copy of the details we hold on you. You can get hold of us to edit, adjust or delete this information.

How do we protect your information?

Once you have given us personal details, we go to great lengths to ensure it is protected. While we do everything we can to guarantee the safety of your personal information, you also have to remember that details such as your email address are being sent over the Internet, and as such we cannot 100% guarantee the security of these; you send information to us over the Internet at your own risk.

Once we get hold of your information, however, we do everything we can to secure it on our systems through the use of secure servers and security certificates (SSL).

Use of ‘cookies’

As with most websites, Boston Link makes use of cookies. These are minuscule parts of information that are stored on your computer’s hard drive by companies that enables them to identify you when you visit the site.

These cookies don’t collect any individual identification data, but rather just statistical insights about the sites you visit and what your online behaviour and patterns are. This actually assists us to improve our user experience and personalise your online interactions. You are able to turn off cookies using your browser settings. 

External links to other websites

Our website is likely to contain links to external websites that belong to other companies. This document only serves as a privacy policy for this website, and as such it’s imperative that you read the privacy documents supplied by the other websites that you visit – even if it’s through a link on our website.

Additionally, if you have accessed our website via an external link on another site, then we cannot guarantee that they have the same privacy policy as us; make sure you read their privacy documents to ensure that their practices are in line with your expectations. 

16 and Under

The personal information of minors under the age of 16 is particularly vulnerable, and we try our utmost to ensure that it is well protected. If you are 16 years or younger, please gain permission from a parent or guardian to distribute your personal information to us.

Transferring your details outside of the EU

By offering your personal information to us, you are acknowledging that they could be transferred to locations outside of the EU. This could happen if a server is located in a country outside of EU. We cannot guarantee that these locations have the same protection laws as we do when it comes to personal data.

By giving us your information, you are agreeing to these terms. However, if we are aware of your data being transferred out of the country, we will make sure the right protection processes are in place to ensure your personal information remains as secure as possible, in line with what we have stated above. If you engage with our website while outside the country, then our data may be transferred internationally in order to provide you with the correct services.

Policy reviews

We consistently update and review our Privacy Policy, and this was last reviewed and updated in May 2018.

This Privacy Policy is amended every so often, so please ensure that you check it out every now and then to make sure that you’re happy with any of the edits we have made. This policy is binding to anyone who uses our website.
