Marketing

We like to keep you up to date with our news and activities. We may do this by sending you information by email, social media, post, telephone call or text message. In order to do this we operate a database that contains your Personal Data.

We currently only use email and social media for marketing.

We use MailChimp for our mailing list management which does track who opens emails and who clicks on what links within the emails we send out: https://mailchimp.com/

All marketing is done in-house and no third party companies are used to reach out to clients or potential clients.

We use Facebook Ads and Google Ads to market (but do not share any personal details with them).

When doing marketing campaigns (trying to get promotion for clients) we share release data and sometimes Personal Data such as name and email addresses.

If you would like to unsubscribe from any mailing list you have previously opted into then you can select the ‘unsubscribe’ option at the bottom or top of any newsletter we send. Alternatively, you can also contact us to remove you from any mailing list.

Job Applicants

If you should apply for a job with Horus we will need to ask you for certain Personal Data and use it to assess your suitability for employment. You do not have to provide us with all Personal Data we request but if you do not it may affect your job application if you decide not to. Any Personal Data you provide us with as part of your job application will only be used for the purpose of progressing your application, or to fulfil legal requirements. We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third party for marketing purposes.

We may need to use the services of a recruitment agency from time to time, in particular, for temporary staff and senior staff. In this instance the recruitment agency will transfer personal details to us.

If you are unsuccessful, the Personal Data you have provided us with will be held for 6 months. If you are successful the Privacy Policy for Staff will detail how we deal with your Personal Data

Transfers of Personal Data Outside of the EEA

Whenever we transfer your Personal Data outside of the EEA, our procedure for dealing with this is to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring one of the following safeguards are implemented:

  • Checking whether the particular country to which Personal Data is being transferred to has been ‘deemed to provided an adequate level of protection’ for Personal Data by the European Commission;
  • By putting contracts in place to ensure the 3rd party is aware of its responsibilities under the General Data Protection Regulations;
