Privacy Policy

Armstrong Craven is committed to protecting the privacy of data we collect and hold. As part of this commitment, we have implemented a company-wide data privacy policy relating to the way in which we process the information provided by clients, candidates and anybody else on whom we hold data. This policy relates to all information collected by Armstrong Craven, either through this website or through other communication means.

The information we collect

This policy applies to two types of information:

Personally Identifiable Information

Armstrong Craven collects personal data from individuals in order to provide services as an Executive Search and Intelligence company. Typically this data comprises what is included in a Curriculum Vitae (For example Name, Contact details, Employment history, Qualifications, Skills, Languages and Interests).

We make every effort to ensure that any information held is accurate and as up-to-date as possible. By submitting your personal information to Armstrong Craven, you indicate your willingness to be considered, when appropriate, for any of Armstrong Craven's confidential assignments.

It is not Armstrong Craven's policy to seek any sensitive information unless legally required in order to complete the particular assignment. Sensitive information includes data relating to physical or mental health, religious or similar beliefs, trade union membership, race or ethnic origin, political opinions, sexual life or criminal record. If an individual provides this information, he or she will be required to give explicit consent for us to hold such information.

Aggregate Information

Armstrong Craven automatically receives and records website information on our server logs from your browser. Data collected may include dates and times of visits, pages viewed and the time spent on the site. This data is collected on an aggregate basis without any association to your personal information so that you remain anonymous.

How we use and disclose information

Personally Identifiable Information

All information collected or provided to us is entered into our database. Only Armstrong Craven employees have access to this data, which is used only for the purposes of providing Search and Intelligence related services.

An individual's personal data will only be disclosed to specific and named client companies with an individual's prior agreement. An individual's data will not be disclosed to any other third party unless Armstrong Craven is required to do so by law.

Aggregate Information

Armstrong Craven uses aggregated information collected from the website in order to enhance the website and to make it easier, faster and friendlier to use. In addition, IP addresses are monitored for security purposes but these are not linked to any personal information.

Additionally, your personal information may be aggregated and used anonymously in order to provide industry, marketing or trend analysis statistics.

Information Security

Armstrong Craven takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal information under our control.

All Armstrong Craven employees undergo training on data privacy and security and are required to comply with our strict internal standards in these areas.

Your Rights

In accordance with applicable national data privacy legislation, an individual may have the right to contact Armstrong Craven to establish whether or not we hold personal data on him or her.

Any individual with a record in our database has the right to request a copy of any of his or her personal information. We may need to ask the individual to provide appropriate confirmation of identity before processing a request.

Any individual with a record in our database has the right to request that we rectify any inaccuracies in his or her personal data or that his or her record be removed from our database and other systems.

If, for good reason, we are unable to comply with such a request, we will let the individual know.

Changes to this Policy

Armstrong Craven reserves the right to modify or amend the Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. Please refer to this Policy from time to time as changes may be made without notice to you.


Please be aware that the website may contain links to third party websites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by Armstrong Craven and does not apply to, nor is Armstrong Craven responsible for, any content, privacy practices, or conduct of any third party websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of each and every website including those that collect personally identifiable information.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Armstrong Craven takes its legal responsibilities very seriously and we are continuously evolving our Privacy Policy to address the privacy laws around the world, including compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR regulation provides new rules for companies processing data about EU individuals (“data subjects”) and provides data subjects with enhanced privacy rights.

In preparation for the GDPR, we have a dedicated team evaluating the new requirements and reviewing and updating our processes and systems to ensure we continue to meet the high standards our employees, candidates and clients expect. We are reviewing, and where necessary updating our policies and procedures to help ensure that your data continues to be handled in compliance with applicable laws. We are also reviewing and updating our contracts with our service providers, to help ensure that your data is adequately protected by third parties that process data.
