YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

You should be aware that when you access or use our content, products and services, we may collect information
from the devices you use to receive Moda Recruitment Ltd content, products and services by using ‘cookies’. We
also collect such information from third party websites, mobile sites and from apps where we show our own
adverts, using cookies and related ad technology.
If you’d like to learn how to manage these cookies and choose whether or not to receive information of different
types, please see the section “Controlling My Cookies” below.
What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to the devices you use to receive Moda Recruitment Ltd content,
products and services and access online information. Your browser makes these cookies available every time you
visit the website again, so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on your device.
Cookies are an important part of the internet. They make using devices and accessing online information much
smoother and affect lots of the useful features of websites. There are many different uses for cookies, but they fall
into four main groups.
Cookies that are needed to provide the content, product or service you have asked for
Some cookies are essential to help your devices download or stream the information, or so you can move around
websites and use their features. Without these cookies, content, products or services you’ve asked for can’t be
Here are some examples of essential cookies:
• Positioning information on a smartphone screen, tablet device or other screen so that you can see the website
and use its functionality.
• Keeping you logged in during your visit or enabling you to stream content. Without cookies, you might have
to log in on every website you visit or repeatedly adjust your volume and viewing settings.
• When you add something to the online shopping basket, cookies make sure it’s still there when you get to the
• Some are session cookies which make it possible to navigate through the website smoothly.
Improving your browsing experience
Cookies allow the application or website to remember choices you make, such as your language or region and
they provide improved features.
Here are a few examples of just some of the ways that cookies are used to improve your experience on our
applications and websites:
• Remembering your preferences and settings, including marketing preferences, such as choosing whether you
wish to receive marketing information.
• Remembering if you’ve filled in a survey, so you’re not asked to do it again.
• Remembering if you’ve been to the application or website before.
• Restricting the number of times you’re shown a particular advertisement. This is sometimes called ‘frequency
• Showing you information that’s relevant to content, products or services that you receive.
• Giving you access to content provided by social-media sites like Facebook or Twitter.
• Showing ‘related article’ links that are relevant to the information you’re looking at.
• Remembering an application or website you’ve entered, such as weather forecasts.
We like to keep track of what websites, information and links are popular and which ones don’t get used so much,
to help us keep our information relevant and up to date. It’s also very useful to be able to identify trends of how
people navigate (find their way through) our information and when and where ‘error messages’ may originate.
This group of cookies, often called ‘analytics cookies’ are used to gather this information. The information
collected is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of
usage rather than any one person’s activity. Analytics cookies are used to improve how an application, a website
and its pages work.
Our applications, web locations, websites and communications you get from us contain small invisible images
known as ‘web beacons’ or ‘ pixels’. These are used to manage the interaction between you and the online
information or email and allow us to assess the effectiveness of the communication.
How we show advertising and marketing that is relevant to your interests
We sell space on some of our websites, mobile sites and apps to advertisers. The resulting adverts often contain
cookies and related ad technology that is placed by third party partners such as ad servers, ad agencies, ad network
providers and research firms. These partners use the browsing information collected from these cookies to:
• Restrict the number of times you see the same ad (frequency capping) and
• Help show other advertisements that are relevant to you while you’re accessing our information. This
information about your browsing activity may be grouped with information about what is being accessed by
other users, into interest groups, and then used to show you advertisements based on those interests. This is
often called online behavioural advertising (OBA). OBA is a way of using information about your webbrowsing activity, collected by using cookies, to group you with other users into interest groups and show you
advertisements based on those interests.
Sometimes our websites contain advertisements for our own Moda Recruitment Ltd products. These

We do not sell personal data collected from cookies to any other organisations. If you want to know about data
collected by third parties when you click on their adverts, you should check their privacy notices to find out what
they collect, how they process it and what they use it for.
It’s easy to choose not to receive behavioural advertising and manage your cookies if you want to.
Controlling my cookies
Virtually all modern browsers allow you to see what cookies you’ve got, and to clear them individually or clear
all of them. To find out how to do this, go to aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on
how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.
How can I choose not to receive Online Behavioural Advertising and other tracking cookies?
In addition to the controls available on your computer, there are other ways of choosing not to receive Online
Behavioural Advertising and other tracking cookies.
Please note that most of these choices work by setting a cookie that overrides the behavioural advertising cookie.
If you clear all your cookies, you will also clear these opt-out cookies, therefore changing your preferences. In
this instance you would need to choose again.
