Privacy Statement

The Shortlisted™ is committed to making every effort to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of information sent to it by customers but does not undertake any responsibility for the privacy or security of that information in any way whatever, other than that demanded under the Data Protection Act 1998.

The Shortlisted™ will store the information provided by customers for future use, for further hard copies of CVs, or amendments or even full-scale updating, but it does not undertake any responsibility for maintaining the security and privacy of that information, other than that demanded under the Data Protection Act.

In any case, The Shortlisted™ will use its best endeavours to protect the security and privacy of that information. Should a client not wish The Shortlisted™ to store information it will be deleted upon the specific instruction of a customer by email, this does not imply in any way that The Shortlisted™ undertakes any responsibility for that information.

Data Protection Principles
The Shortlisted™ complies with all the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. The website guarantees that all information will be treated strictly by the Data Protection Act 1998.

In particular, the principles related to the processing of personal data are:

– Processed for a limited time

– Accurate

– Secure

– Processed by your rights

– Adequate, relevant & not excessive

– Fairly and lawfully processed

– Not transferred to countries without adequate protection


The Shortlisted™ strives to ensure the integrity, security and privacy of personal information submitted by customers, and reviews and updates its security measures in light of current technologies. The Shortlisted™ follows generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted by customers, both during transmission and once the website receives it.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Therefore, The Shortlisted™ cannot guarantee its absolute security. However, The Shortlisted™ will endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information you may transmit. Once The Shortlisted™ receives your transmission, it will also make the best possible efforts to ensure its security on systems.

For your safety and protection, The Shortlisted™ never stores credit and debit card numbers on its servers. Where necessary, credit and debit card numbers are stored by a carefully selected payment gateway provider (“Stripe”) providing the use of encryption during transmission. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit and debit card number) on the website order forms, The Shortlisted™ encrypts the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
