How Daisychain Obtains Personal Information

Daisychain collect and process your personal information at the start of, and for the duration of, your relationship with us. Our primary source of your personal information will come directly from you in the form of interviews and Emails. In addition, we may obtain personal information from:

  1. publicly available sources:
  2. third parties e.g. referees, amongst others.


All personal information will always be respected by Daisychain. Only those persons within Daisychain or directly authorised contractors of Daisychain will be allowed access to it and only whilst using it in pursuance of work directly related to you.

Daisychain does not share any of your personal information with any third-party companies for the purposes of marketing or analysis.

Curriculum Vitae

By supplying Daisychain with your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and any other documentation you are agreeing to the CV and documents being transmitted by post or Email to clients of Daisychain seeking employees for vacancies they have registered with Daisychain.

By receiving a CV or other documentation from Daisychain sent in response to your vacancy placed with Daisychain you are responsible for ensuring the copy’s safekeeping and eventual destruction when no longer required.


As a standard part of the recruitment process you may be asked to supply references. By their nature references contain personal information. It is imperative that you seek permission of the referee to send on any reference as their contact information may be used to verify the reference.

At Daisychain we recommend that only the phrase ‘References available on request’ is entered on a CV and the referee details sent separately.

Personal Information Destruction

Daisychain will maintain personal information received for an indefinite period. Should we receive updated versions of personal information we already have the supplanted version will be destroyed. All hardcopy (paper etc.) personal information is shredded. Digital personal information is deleted from computers.

Daisychain may decide to destroy personal information if it is deemed no longer relevant to the operations carried out by the company.
