GDPR…What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It’s a new regulation that is being enforced by the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission which has been put in place to protect your data and all individuals within the EU.

But, why do you need my consent to keep my data?

First Point Group needs your consent to contact you, our customers for legitimate business purposes. With your consent, we are able to contact you with all of our latest opportunities and recruitment services. Without your consent, unfortunately, we can’t contact you about vacancies or offer any recruitment advice.

What happens if I deny consent?

We would be sad to see you go, but we will respectfully remove your details from our internal database. We will no longer be able to contact you about jobs and opportunities within the First Point Group Network. However, you can re-join us at any time via firstpointgroup.com.

How did you get my CV and personal information?

Your CV and personal details will have been submitted to us directly through firstpointgroup.com, or, via a job board or platform where First Point Group advertise vacancies.

How long will you keep my personal information on your database?

With your consent, we will hold your details on our database whilst our service is still applicable to you. We are able to delete all information upon your request via email contact to: sosullivan@firstpointgroup.com
Alternatively, we will ask for your consent every 2 years.

What happens if I would like to withdraw consent?

Email sosullivan@firstpointgroup.com at any time if you would like your details removed from our database. We also may contact you to confirm your details before the removal is complete. We hope to see you again soon!
