Information collection and use
At NEXT LEVEL BUSINESS Services Ltd., we collect certain categories of information depending on the relationship we have with you. You provide most of this data directly or it is available at job boards:
We collect the information you provide us when applying for an open position via our website or through our other channels. We do sourcing through various job boards or LinkedIn where your details are available. We send a Consent email to you to represent your candidature and retain your data for further job openings. You can allow or deny us the permission. Your application letter and curriculum vitae will be retained for 6 months after the recruitment procedure ends. After that, we will delete your information unless we get your permission to hold on to the information for future jobs within our company or with clients. In that case we will delete the information after 1 year. Any given permission can be withdrawn at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you apply for a position with one of our clients, we will share your information with them.
