Well firstly we suggest you login to your account and check all your data is up-to-date, check your preferences and ensure you are signed up to emails you want to receive. Job Alerts (JBE’s) are released on a daily basis according to your selection, or you may receive e-shots from our mailing programme where you have matched criteria suitable for our clients. You can select whether you want to receive these or not. You can also close your account if you wish to do so.
Although GDPR is a major shake up to Data Protection Laws it will make companies more aware of how they are handling your data, and gives you the opportunity to take more control over what data is available to others. Take this as an opportunity to have a clear up, and make sure you are sticking with those companies that are compliant with the new legislation!
