WPP Privacy Policy for Recruitment

At WPP we are committed to ensuring that your personal information is protected and never misused.

Our privacy policy explains what personal information we collect, why we collect it, how we use it, the controls you have over your personal information and the procedures that we have in place to protect your privacy. It applies to personal information we collect through public sources (e.g. LinkedIn) as well as CVs and other documents you send to us.

By sharing your personal information with us, you confirm that you have read and understood the terms of this privacy policy. We take responsibility for the personal information we collect about you, and we aim to be transparent about how we handle it, and give you control over it.

In this privacy policy, when we refer to "WPP", "us", "we" or "our", we mean WPP and its operating companies or the "WPP Group".

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about any aspect of this policy or how WPP handles your information please email our Privacy Team at [email protected]

What personal information do we collect?

We collect personal information from you in several different ways; you may share that information with us, or we may collect it using other means. In this section, we explain the different ways we collect personal information from you and some ways in which that information will be used. For more detail on how we use your personal information, please see the section titled "How do we use your personal information?".

Information you share with us

We collect personal information that you share with us when you contact us or interact with us through our website, email, phone or otherwise. You can decide not to provide certain information, or ask that any information you have previously shared is removed. If you do so, you may not be able to take full advantage of a career at WPP and progress an application.

For example, you may provide information to us when in contact about an opportunity to work at WPP, sharing a CV or Resume or other career information.

Through these interactions you may share with us: your name, address, e-mail address, postal address, contact number, career history (usually in the form of a CV) as well as any other personally identifiable information you include in your interactions with WPP. We may also ask for additional information to assist us with our recruitment process and in the event you are offered a job.

Cookies

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent or you can flush your browser of cookies from time to time. (Note: you may need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.)

Should you visit any of our WPP Group company websites, cookies may be used as described in the relevant privacy policy, so it is a good idea to check the privacy policies which govern those websites.

How do we use your personal information?

We may share your personal information with companies in the WPP Group, and given the global nature of our company, your personal information may be transferred from one jurisdiction to another. When we make such transfers, we do so in accordance with data protection legislation, for example by using Standard Contractual Clauses where information is transferred from WPP in the European Economic Area to WPP in the United States of America.

By submitting your personal information to us, you agree to us transferring, storing and handling your personal information in this way.

We share your personal information with certain third parties who provide services on our behalf. They only have access to the personal information they need to perform those services. They are required to keep your personal information confidential and may not use it other than as we ask them to and always in accordance with this privacy policy.

Information you share with us

We use the personal information you share with us in the following ways:

  • To communicate with you;
  • To provide you with updates about your WPP application;
  • To provide services and support for any application you make;
  • To facilitate any application you make to WPP;
  • To provide updates to you about any changes to WPP’s policies, terms and conditions and any other matters which we may need to tell you; and
  • If you have asked us to keep you informed of other opportunities at WPP, we may periodically contact you to tell you about these.
  • To respond to your queries and requests

Contacting You in the Future

If you have asked us to we will keep you informed of other opportunities at WPP. We do this in various ways, including e-mail, post, SMS, via social media platforms and by phone, but only if you are happy for us to do so.

Links to third party websites

We may provide links to other websites which are not operated and controlled by WPP.

We have no control over and are not responsible for the content of those sites or how the third parties responsible for them collect and use your personal information. We do not endorse or make any representations about third party websites.

Third party websites may have their own privacy policies explaining how they use and share your personal information. You should carefully review those privacy policies before you use these websites to make sure that you are happy with how your personal information is being collected and shared.

How long do we keep your personal information?

We only keep your personal information for as long as we need to, to be able to use it for the reasons given in this privacy policy, and for as long as we are required to keep it by law. Following an application we keep your information should any other opportunities become available.

Informing us of Changes

If any of the information that you have provided to WPP changes, for example if you change your e-mail address, name or postal address, you can update, amend or request removal of information by submitting a request to [email protected].

How do we protect your personal information?

We use appropriate technical and organisational measures, including encryption, to protect your personal information and privacy, and review those regularly. We protect your personal information using a combination of physical and IT security controls, including access controls that restrict and manage the way in which your personal information and data is processed, managed and handled. Whilst we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information, we commit to taking all reasonable steps to do so.
