Once a file is closed, it can only be accessed by designated personnel. If a staff has to take information off the company premises they are only allowed to take copies and it must be documented in the head office the information has been removed. No personal data is allowed to be taken home, that is always kept in the head office that is secured by a security system. All staff are required to sign a confidentiality agreement.
All information we collect on behalf of a client becomes their property and candidates can gain access to the results from the client.
