You have the right to access and the right to rectify your personal data, whether submitted as an application or otherwise, by sending the employer a written request. Zodo will not process any requests in connection with the adjustment or removal of personal data by a candidate.

Your data may also be disclosed to a third party vendor contracted by Zodo with responsibility for maintenance and development work within iKrut’s servers or for the provision of additional services within the iKrut hiring platform. Zodo will not disclose your data to any other third party unless required to do so by law or regulators.

The security of your data:

Our servers are hosted by Rackspace one of the world’s largest server hosting companies, which is fully compliant with all EU data protection security protocols.

The data centre is in the South East of the UK in an unmarked building, behind security fencing, with onsite security personnel and away from any major towns, flight paths, rivers or anything likely to cause damage to the building and therefore the servers.

The data centre has the most up to date security and safety features like fire suppression systems, biometric access controls and is above ground in case of flooding.

  • Access to the data centre is biometrically controlled.
  • Our servers are protected by a firewall on both the hardware and software with an additional virtual firewall provided by Cloudflare.
  • We have redundant hard drive backup in case 1 hard drive fails.
  • Incremental data is backed up each night and stored offsite.
  • Access to the system as a user is through secure logins only allocated by someone within your organisation. You cannot get into the system without those. It's important that you ensure those logins are tightly controlled and anyone no longer working for you is deleted as a user from the system without undue delay.
  • All applicant data is automatically deleted 12 months from the date of submission. This is in accordance with good data protection guidelines and you may only keep the data for longer in iKrut if the candidate gives you specific, written permission.
  • We conduct an annual penetration test to ensure there are no vulnerabilities in our code that could be hacked externally.
  • We do not download your data, store it anywhere other than within our servers or forward it to anyone. It’s your data, which we look after.
  • No data or user passwords are downloaded or ever taken outside of the office, which itself is locked.
  • Access to the server can only be made by password protected procedure by machines falling within designated IP addresses.
  • All devices (laptops and desktops) that could access the server are password protected
  • Candidates applying to a job powered by iKrut do so via the secure https:// pathway
