Who has access to your information?
All One Player Mission staff have access to your information. We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We utilise a CRM (Bullhorn Inc.) to process your data, where we can store your CV and any information you’ve given us such as contact details, portfolio links etc. Providing us with a platform to store and process your information is Bullhorn’s sole function.

We also work closely with LinkedIn as a way of communicating with you. Once your information is securely stored on our CRM, we may enable integration with LinkedIn whereby some very basic information (first name, job title etc.) is used to sync our communications and correspondence between the two platforms. This is the sole purpose, and LinkedIn work strictly in compliance with our instruction on this front.
Lastly, we use a marketing tool (SugarCRM) where we may process your data. The platform is strictly used to process the contact details you’ve provided us with, so we may provide you with regular content as part of our service. This is the sole purpose, and SugarCRM work strictly in compliance with our instruction on this front.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information
When you give us your personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Our webpages are encrypted and protected – when you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Any information we hold on our database is also protected through encryption, stored on a secure cloud service server.
Some of your personal information may be passed on to third parties, or given by yourselves normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information and we hold it, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your characteristics, interests, and preferences, so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you (a portfolio for example) when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk
Links to other websites
In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third-party site.
16 or Under
We are concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information.
OPM is relying on Legitimate Interests as a lawful basis to process personal information. OPM has dedicated time and effort to ensure our processing activities would not negatively impact any individual’s rights or cause unwarranted harm or distress. Not only does OPM hold a strong interest in processing personal information, but the individual, Third Party (client), and the industry as a whole also benefit from our service. OPM also rely on consent as a lawful basis to pass personal information on to our clients. We will always discuss the opportunity, the client, and their project with you before doing so, to ensure you’re happy for us to make a job application on your behalf.
OPM operates email marketing to provide our candidates and clients with valuable recruitment resources and opportunities. Our primary purpose for collecting and processing personal information is to provide candidates with suitable opportunities of employment, and to assist clients in finding suitable candidates. Alongside our core recruitment activities, we employ email marketing as a means to deliver useful resources to candidates such as interview advice, portfolio templates, as well as job opportunities and so on.
For OPM to operate email marketing, we have carefully considered compliance:
New candidates: the simplest way for new candidates to benefit from our resources is to be offered the opportunity to opt-out of receiving marketing emails or texts when their details are first collected; and so all new candidates will receive an introductory email offering this. In line with PECR and GDPR compliance requirements, we are relying on Legitimate Interest as a basis to operate this way and have dedicated time and effort to ensure our marketing activities would not negatively impact any individual’s rights or cause unwarranted harm or distress.
Existing candidates: with existing candidates things are different as we haven’t always offered the opportunity to opt-out of receiving marketing emails or texts when their details were first collected. The safest measure we can take is to obtain an opt-in to marketing emails and texts, and we will do so for existing candidates.
Clients: much like the two types of candidate there are separate guidelines in place for business connections. Simply put we are able to contact clients with marketing emails and texts and will ensure the content is relevant to our relationship.
Transferring your information outside of Europe
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if you ask us to pass your details on to a client outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU to provide you with those services.
