  1. Data Protection Principles

Due to the nature of its business, Momentum Hospitality Recruitment Ltd. may deal with personal and/or potentially sensitive data. This data may be from personal or corporate clients, employees or other organisations and may be in the form of personal or contact details, employment and educational histories, or other types of personal data appropriate to our line business.

The law in the UK relating to processing data is called the Data Protection Act 1998 and it places obligations on all organisations that process personal information and gives individuals certain rights. The Act states that those who record and use personal information must be open about how the information is used and must follow “good data handling” principles.

Whilst always respecting your data and privacy, we as a company, promote openness in the use of personal information and aim to always be transparent and open about how and why we process data. Such message and principles are also promoted by us to any Clients and Third Parties we may collaborate with. Any personal data collected, stored or processed in any way, whether on a computer or on paper, will have appropriate safeguards applied to it to ensure that Momentum Hospitality Recruitment Ltd. complies with the Act.

These Third Parties have also entered into an agreement with Momentum Hospitality Recruitment Ltd. that requires such Third Parties to use CVs solely for the purpose of filling a vacancy within their own organization and forbids them of sharing such information. Although Momentum Hospitality Recruitment Ltd works only with reputable organizations and we use all reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that all limitations and policies will be adhered by all Consultants and Third Parties therefore, we can’t be held responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.
