The Careers and Employability Service - how we use your data
The Careers and Employability Service (CES) will write a summary of our interactions with you. This can include information such as your career ideas, plans for your next steps and any feedback given on CVs/applications/mock interviews etc.
This information is accessible to staff within the CES and recording it in writing allows advisers to prepare for any subsequent interactions with you so that you can receive tailored information, advice and guidance.
There are some instances where this information may be made available to staff in professional services and academic schools at the University of Kent, where pertinent to their roles (unless you request otherwise). Examples of which are:
Client records are kept to enable consistent and appropriate guidance to be offered to clients by the adviser who is engaging with them, whether in the CES, another professional service or an academic school at the University of Kent. Your information will not be shared with employers or other external organisations, unless it is permitted to do so by law. Information will be kept for three years after your graduation when your entitlement to use the CES ends.
By accessing our service, you are giving us permission to record in writing data about the interaction we have with you as detailed above. If you object to the Careers and Employability Service holding your data in this way then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The CES shall ensure that all personal data gathered from clients is handled in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 as required by the University, see: www.kent.ac.uk/infocompliance On this website you can also find details on how you can access any personal data held on you. You have the right for the data held on you by the CES to be rectified, if you find it to be inaccurate, or to be erased.
