The primary purpose of this Site is to provide you with information regarding the services provided by BD Search and Selection Ltd.

We use the personal information we collect from you for a number of purposes:

- for equality monitoring purposes, to understand the diversity of our applicant pool (as stated above, this information is anonymised);
Providing information to others
We work closely with our clients with whom we need to share personal information to provide our executive search services.
Keeping information secure
We invest significant resources to protect your personal information, from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. However, no internet-based site can be 100% secure and so we cannot be held responsible for unauthorised or unintended access that is beyond our control.

We would advise you to keep a record of their agreement and provide them with a copy of, or link to, this Policy to avoid any concern.
Keeping your records
We keep records for as long as required to provide the relevant services, and in accordance with legal requirements. Where your information is no longer required, we will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner and, where required by applicable law we will notify you when such information has been disposed of.
