Privacy Policy for Recruitment Specialists – GDPR Compliance


The Government committed to updating and strengthening UK data protection laws through a new Data Protection Bill which came into force on 25 May 2018. Also known as the General Data Protection Regulations (GDRP), TwoKnights Ltd (TKL) trading as The Gateway are committed to upholding the new regulations and maintaining the trust and confidence of our clients.  We only collect personal data about you in order to provide recruitment services.  We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need.

Use of Personal Information – How we Collect and Use your Personal Data.

The personal data we collect from you consists of your name, contact details such as your telephone number, mailing address and email address. There is also the option, via the Gateway, for you to e-sign an Agreement with your employer or agency. This means we will be collecting your signature.


All details provided by our users and partner organisations such as employers and/or agencies, via the Gateway, will be used for the administration of recruitment and employee management.


We will also, where necessary, collect Special Personal Data which could include nationality, immigration status and some generic health data. The collection of this data is for the purposes of administration of recruitment and employee management.


Data collected is provided by you when you sign up to use the Gateway.


We may share aggregated demographic information with our partner organisations. This will be in an anonymised format and not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. 

When your personal information is added onto the Gateway, you agree to use of the data across the Gateway. Personal details requested are listed on the Gateway and only used and shared with businesses you are or have been engaged with. 

All information contained on the Gateway may be shared with:

  • The Home Office (Including UK Visas and Immigration and the Police Service)

  • Any other Government department with an interest in the scheme

  • TKL auditing bodies (currently DB Compliance, Clearview)

  • All businesses directly engaged within the Gateway
