Privacy and Cookies

We have put in place policies and procedures to protect personal information we collect about you to comply with the UK Data Protection Act 1998 and subsequent amendments to this Act.

Details of how we collect, use and disseminate your personal data are described here to demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy.

What data do we collect about you?

Your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and personal details:

Syntax regards your CV as important, private documentation. We believe that you; the CV owner, should be fully in control of the contents of your CV and who sees that information.

When submitting your CV and Personal Details to Syntax we store information such as your name, address, education, employment history and other details normally found on a CV. We are collecting this information in order to aid you in your search for employment.

We need your help to ensure that the data we hold is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. To achieve this we ask you to update your profile regularly (at least every six months). We are reliant on you supplying us with a factually accurate and complete picture of you and your requirements.

Who sees your Personal Details / CV and how is it used?

Only current authorised Syntax employees will have access to this data.

Syntax will obtain your permission BEFORE the CV is sent to any potential employer.

Syntax provides a job via e-mail service based on your personal profile.

You can unsubscribe from the job email service at any time by getting in touch and asking us to do this. 

Should you wish to be removed from our database you can do so by sending an email to the Candidate Management Team
