Candidate Support

Can you delete my data?

We can check our systems to delete any data that we hold on you as a data controller. This would include any time where you have 1) called in directly for support, 2) if you have taken any practice tests on our site or 3) if you are registered to receive marketing information from SHL. Unless there is a pending legal action or dispute which would require us to retain your personal information until the matter is resolved, we will delete your personal information that we hold as a data controller.

For any personal data in relation to an assessment that you have taken for another organisation or potential employer, you will need to relay this question to your employer or potential employer directly as we cannot delete candidate data without our client’s express permission as they are the controller of your personal information. Please ensure to provide your employer or potential employer with the information below, in order for them to instruct us to process your request.

Please provide the client with the following details:
the assessment type and date completed;
full name and email address you used; and
the name of the organisation for whom you took the assessment at the request of a specific organization (i.e., as part of an application for employment).
