McDermott Will & Emery UK LLP
AllHires and McDermott Will & Emery UK LLP data retention policy

Your data

When you create an account on AllHires, you can submit multiple applications. Our data retention policy is at the account level; this means that your full account is retained against the longest retention period as applied to any of the applications you have made. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that applications are not deleted as the retention period expires, rather your full account is deleted when you revoke consent or when the latest data retention period expires.

Legal requirement

We will retain your data as long as necessary to satisfy the legal requirement.

If you request your account is deleted

We keep your data for up to 28 days, after which your data is deleted unless we have another legal basis to retain your data.

If you change your mind and want your data to be retained you must consent again to the privacy policy or notify the firm as soon as possible.
