We've produced this website to help you access our range of services; whether that's receiving details on job vacancies, candidates, prospective employers and/or interviews. Accessing or using any part of this website is taken to mean that you agree to these terms and conditions, regardless of whether you register with us or not. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you should not access or use this website.

Please note that our website contains links to other sites outside of our responsibility that may or not share these terms and conditions. Do feel free to contact any of our staff if you have any queries or any further concerns that still need to be addressed.

We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time. Your continued access and use of the website means that you agree to the most current version of these terms and conditions, last updated in September 2005.

Data & information
We make every effort to maintain the integrity of the information hosted on this website. However, the Barbara Houghton Group (BHG) accepts no liability for any errors or omissions. Any information viewed on this website is for information only and is subject to change without notice. We can only recommend that you rely on it having first sought further advice. Any personal and corporate details submitted to this website will be held by BHG to serve your recruitment needs. It is therefore your responsibility to ensure that your details are both accurate and up-to date and that you inform us of any changes that need to be made. Any third party suppliers who are given access to your details towards fulfilling the remit of this website as outlined above will also adhere to these terms and conditions. Even so, the Barbara Houghton Group will never submit your details to a third party for secondary or unrelated purposes, or pass them on for commercial gain or for any other reason, unless explicitly indicated at the point of collection. Notwithstanding, in order to respond to requests from law enforcement, British regulatory bodies and government agencies, BHG may disclose personal details in order to comply with UK law. Should you send us your CV on-line, we extend the unequivocal assurance that it will not appear on our website, but be stored securely on our database to prevent compromise and help you get a new job. Nevertheless, you do not have to submit any personal information in order to use this website at an elementary level. By submitting data to this website, though, you agree to us processing it towards fulfilling this website's remit. In doing so, BHG will adopt the appropriate commercial standards of technology and operational security as advised to protect any information provided by you from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. We will also use the information you submit to us to respond to you. We may also use it to make you aware of additional services that could be of interest to you, of new vacancies as they arise, or of improvements to this website as appropriate. Additionally, we may also use such data for usage as reported to the Data Protection Registrar/Commissioner. We've implemented procedures to obtain the necessary consents before using your details to contact you. But if ever you wish to stop receiving mailings by e-mail or by post, please write to let us know at: Barbara Houghton Group, 4th Floor, 2 London Wall Buildings, London, EC2M 5PP. All content and items that appear within this site are © Barbara Houghton Group 2005 unless stated otherwise.

Even though our website summarises candidates' profiles, in publicising this information, we make no guarantee that an employer will ask for a candidate's details, invite them for interview, or offer them a position. Similarly, we do not guarantee that a candidate will be available to attend an interview or meet an employer's requirements. Additionally, we can make no warranty as to the final terms or duration of a position secured through this website.

We use them to track information on our systems and identify categories of visitors by items such as IP address, domain, browser type and pages visited. Clearly, we're keen to ensure that our website is well managed. Therefore, BHG or our service provider(s) may track information on our systems and identify categories of visitors using criteria as indicated above.

Referral Reward Scheme
