Privacy Policy.


Herringbone Search is committed to privacy and transparency.

At Herringbone Search we collect different types of information about our website users, clients and candidates for three main reasons:

  1. To provide personalised executive search services.
  2. To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer.
  3. To market services.

We respect your privacy and will do our very best to protect your privacy by using appropriate security measures.

We will collect and use details only if we have your permission or we have sensible business reasons for doing so.

We will be clear in our dealings as to what information about you we will collect and how we will use it.

We will use personal information only for the purposes for which it was originally collected.

We will make sure we delete it securely.

If you apply for a role or meet with us we will collect your contact details and details about your career; storing and distributing these with appropriate sensitivity.

We may share your details with prospective employers, but only with your permission. These employers are governed by their own privacy policies, but sign our terms and conditions.

If you engage with us through social media sites their privacy policy supersedes our own. For example, Herringbone Search cannot be responsible for the business actions of LinkedIn.

If you attend one of our events, data may be shared for event administration purposes and improving services.

Some calls may be monitored or recorded for training and other business purposes.

We do not sell personal data.

We do not use cookies on our website.

We will access and release personal information if required by law or by government request.

Any other organisations who access your information in the course of providing services on our behalf will be governed by strict contractual restrictions to make sure that they protect your information and keep to data-protection and privacy laws which apply.

We may share anonymised behavioural data during consultancy sessions.

If you would like access to or a copy of the personal information we hold about you, to request a correction, or have any questions about how we may use it or to make a complaint, please contact us at

If you are not satisfied with the way your complaint was handled, you may be able to refer your complaint to your local data protection regulator. For example, in the United Kingdom this is the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Should we elect to change our privacy policy we will post the changes here. Where the changes are significant, we may also choose to email all our registered users with the new details. Where required by law, will we obtain your consent to make these changes.
