We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.

IP addresses and cookies
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
For the same reason, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on the hard drive of your computer.

Uses made of the information
We use information held about you in the following ways:
Disclosure of your information
We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 736 of the UK Companies Act 1985.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us – email@example.com
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates.

Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Publicis Communications Candidate Privacy Notice
What is the purpose of this document?
Publicis Communications (which includes Leo Burnett, Fallon Saatchi & Saatchi, Publicis London, Poke, Arc, August, Salter Baxter, Turner Duckworth, Prodigous, MSL) is a “data controller”. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. You are being sent a copy of this privacy notice because you have or are applying for work with us (whether as an employee, worker or contractor). It makes you aware of how and why your personal data will be used, namely for the purposes of the recruitment exercise, and how long it will usually be retained for. It provides you with certain information that must be provided under the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (GDPR).
Data protection principles
We will comply with the applicable data protection law and principles, such as the GDPR, which means that your data will be:
The kind of information we hold about you
In connection with your application for work with us, we will collect, store, and use the following categories of personal information about you:
We may also collect, store and use the following “special categories” of more sensitive personal information:
How is your personal information collected?
We collect personal information about candidates from the following sources:
How we will use information about you.
We will use the personal information we collect about you to:
It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you to the role (or work) since it would be beneficial to our business to appoint someone to that role (or to carry out that work) or other appropriate roles (or work) that you would be suitable to be considered for during the 12 months after communicating with you about the specific role (or work) that you’ve applied for.
We also need to process your personal information to decide whether to enter into a contract (or the provision of services or employment) with you.
Having received your CV and covering letter or your application form we will then process that information to decide whether you meet the basic requirements to be shortlisted for the role. If you do, we will decide whether your application is strong enough to invite you for an interview. If we decide to call you for an interview, we will use the information you provide to us at the interview to decide whether to offer you the role (or work). If we decide to offer you the role (or work), we will look to obtain references.
If you fail to provide personal information.
If you fail to provide information when requested, which is necessary for us to consider your application (such as evidence of qualifications or work history), we will not be able to process your application successfully.
How we use particularly sensitive personal information.
“Special Categories” of particularly sensitive personal information require higher levels of protection. We need to have further justification for collecting, storing and using this type of personal information.
We will use your particularly sensitive personal information as employer only in the following ways:
Information about criminal convictions
We do not envisage that we will process information about criminal convictions.
However, there may be specific roles where we we will collect information about your criminal convictions history if we would like to offer you the role (or work) (conditional on checks and any other conditions, such as references being satisfactory). If we are required to carry out a criminal records check we will let you know. We may need to satisfy ourselves that there is nothing in your criminal convictions history which makes you unsuitable for the role. In particular if the specific role (or work) requires a high degree of trust and integrity and so we would like to ask you to seek a basic disclosure of your criminal records history.
We have in place an appropriate policy document and safeguards which we are required by law to maintain when processing such data.
You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making.
Why might you share my personal information with third parties?
We will only share your personal information with the following third parties for the purposes of processing your application: recruiters, hiring managers, interviewers, HR and staffing teams, other agencies within Publicis Communications, our candidate database provider and background check provider. All our third-party service providers and other entities in the group are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We may transfer your personal information outside of the EU. In the event that your data is transferred outside of the EU we will ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection by having a valid transfer mechanism in place so that your personal information is treated by such third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the EU and UK laws on data protection.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
How long will you use my information for?
We will retain your personal information for a period of 12 months months after we have communicated to you our decision about whether to appoint you to the role (or work). We retain your personal information for that period so that we can show, in the event of a legal claim, that we have not discriminated against candidates on prohibited grounds and that we have conducted the recruitment exercise in a fair and transparent way. We also retain your data for this period because another opportunity may arise during this period which you may be suitable for. After this period, we will securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy. If we wish to maintain your personal information on file for longer than 12 months, we will write to you separately, seeking your explicit consent to retain your personal information for a fixed period on that basis.
Where a successful candidate is sponsored for visa purposes by us and your CV was considered as part of the recruitment process for this role, we keep your CV and recruitment details (as set out above) for a period of 6 years from the appointment of the successful candidate or at least a year after the successful candidate’s employment with us terminates (whichever is the later). We retain your personal information for this period in the event that the Home Office carry out an immigration audit.
Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction
Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during the recruitment process and during the retention period:
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please request that via an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about this privacy notice or how we handle your personal information, please contact us via email at email@example.com. You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues.
