Privacy Policy

Your Privacy is Important to Us

At Sonas Recruitment your right to privacy and our treatment of your personal data is paramount. Since 25 May 2018, Europe’s laws on data protection have undergone fundamental changes as the General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) took effect, replacing the European Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC.  We commit to following all principles and guidelines outlined by GDPR; the following statement outlines how Sonas Recruitment manages personal data that it holds about you in accordance with this regulation.

Legislation

The GDPR is designed to protect individuals about whom information is entered and stored on computer and other systems. Accordingly, this legislation lays down strict standards of accuracy, relevance and care of such data including how it may be divulged. We endeavour at all times to comply with Irish and EU data protection legislation in force from time to time.

We also make a note of relevant interactions with you.

We collect this information so that we may provide you with a reliable and efficient recruitment service in assisting you in your job search and to enable us to contact you accordingly with work opportunities that may be of interest.

We reserve the right to assign your data to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all the assets of our company in circumstances where the third party agrees to observe the terms of this Privacy Policy.
