Terms & Conditions
This notice sets out the way Maven Search will collect and use information about you in a way that is consistent with our responsibilities and your rights under relevant privacy law. Please read it carefully so that you understand how we will use your information.
We work closely with leading financial services organisations to identify and place senior executives. We have identified you as an executive who would be of interest to our clients. We take your privacy seriously and, for us to keep you informed about relevant opportunities, we request your consent to hold your personal data. If you do not formally provide consent by completing this process, we will be legally obliged to remove you from our database and can no longer put you forward for such opportunities.
Typically, we collect your current and previous employers, and details of your work, skills and experiences, education and qualifications. We will hold your personal data, so we can connect you to the most suitable position according to your background and experience. We may use your personal information to contact you to discuss the opportunity. We will only make your personal information visible to the organisations we are working with when you are put forward for an opportunity, which will be discussed with you beforehand. We will hold your data for the connected period, we will not hold your data if you choose not to connect or remove connection with us later.
You have the right to request from us access to your own personal information. This is sometimes known as a ‘subject access request’.
Additionally, you have the right to request from us:
- that any inaccurate information we hold about you is corrected
- that information about you is deleted in certain situations
- that we stop using your personal information for certain purposes
- that your member profile is provided to you in a portable format
- that decisions about you are not made by wholly automated means
Many of the rights listed above are limited to certain defined circumstances and we may not always be able to comply with your request. We will tell you if this is the case.
We will never process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. We will never share your information with any third parties for this purpose.
If you choose to make a request to exercise any of these rights, we will aim to respond to you as soon as we reasonably can but no later than one month. We will not charge a fee for dealing with any reasonable request.
If you are unhappy with how we are using your personal information or if you wish to complain about how we have handled a request, then please contact [email protected] and we will try to resolve your concerns.

Disclosure of Personal Information
We may share Personal Information with our offices and affiliates worldwide where necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of our executive search or other services. In particular, Personal Information about executive search candidates and/or Clients is often included in our company’s databases for these purposes, and therefore may be accessible to our foreign offices and affiliates.

We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, including information technology providers and business process outsourcing providers, in order to help support our business operations.

We may also use, disclose, or otherwise process any information for statistical or any other purposes that we choose in our sole discretion, as long as such information is not in personally identifiable form.
Security of Personal Information
Maven Search maintains reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. To the extent that we disclose Personal Information to third party subcontractors, we require that such third parties also maintain reasonable security and confidentiality measures and use the Personal Information in accordance with our instructions. In addition, where we disclose Personal Information to Clients and other third parties mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs, we will request that they properly protect the security and confidentiality of such information, and otherwise process such data in accordance with applicable law.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.

We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
