Bidwells are committed to ensuring that the privacy of our visitors to our websites is protected.

This privacy policy explains what personal information we collect, how we use it, your ability to ask that it is updated or amended and sets out the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in this policy.

If we change our privacy policy, any changes will be posted on this page without notification.


The Privacy Policy applies to data collected by Bidwells through the Bidwells careers website and any associated applications for employment which come through the Bidwells careers website.


What Personal Data do we collect about you?

The Bidwells careers website will collect information on users in a number of ways, including through registration and email correspondence as follows;

1.1 Registration

To apply for a role listed on our website we require users to register and to provide us with a name, telephone number, email address (if they have one), postal address and career history (usually in the form of a CV). We may also ask for additional information to assist us with our recruitment process and in the event you are offered a job.

1.2 Contacting us by email

If you send us email messages, you will automatically provide us with your email address, as well as any other personally identifiable information you include in your message.

1.3 Other non-identifiable data

We collect and store anonymous, aggregate statistics from all visitors to our careers website, whether they actively provide us with information or merely browse our website, including the internet protocol (IP) address of the computer they are using, the browser software they use and their operating system, the date and time they access our website, the internet address of the website from which they linked directly to our website.

No personal information about you is collected, for example we do not tie a specific browsing session to a specific IP address - in fact the Bidwells people who work with these tools have no way of telling who you are.

What do we do with the information we collect?

Bidwells careers use your personal information to provide you with information that you have requested including supporting your application for employment at Bidwells.

If you have asked us to keep you informed of other opportunities at Bidwells, we may periodically contact you to tell you about these for up to 12 months.

We may also perform statistical analyses of user behaviour on our websites (e.g. by analysing the website usage gathered passively from all users). We use this type of information to lets us look at things like how long web pages take to load, track website usage, to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our website and what information visitors look at most. It also helps identify any part of our website that isn’t working as well as it should - so we can fix things and make our website better for our users.

With whom do we share information?

We may share your information with third party providers and suppliers providing services on our behalf including for psychometric ability testing and reference checking if your application is successful.

We expect all third party service providers and suppliers to apply the same level of privacy protection as is contained in this privacy policy. They are required to keep confidential any information received under any arrangement with Bidwells and may not use it for any purpose other than as originally intended.

We will also share your information if required to do so by law, including in response to a legal process, such as a court order or any applicable laws.

Bidwells will not sell or rent your information to others.

Will we transfer your information overseas?

All information submitted to the Bidwells careers website is hosted in the UK.
