Privacy Notice

Orecor Ltd is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Here we outline our approach to collecting personal data.

Personal Data

Here we lay out examples of the types of data we collect, and the reasons why.

  • Candidates' email addresses are provided to us by our customers to enable us to send Orecor test details to candidates, and to enable our customers to identify the candidate in question when test results are made available
  • Candidates provide us with their accountancy qualifications and salary band – we use these to maintain Orecor test performance benchmarks, which we provide to our customers to contextualise candidates’ test results
  • Various names, locations, phone numbers and such like are submitted to us by those making enquiries – we use these to respond appropriately and maintain appropriate onward dialogue
  • We maintain similar details of individuals who, given their job roles, would reasonably expect to receive communications about our product (where the use of the Orecor recruitment test product would add value to their team or organisation)
  • Website users’ IP addresses, device characteristics etc. are collected and analysed as part of our product optimisation efforts, and we use cookies as part of our approach to security and user sessions


Keeping your data safe is important to us. We use various technical and organisational measures to ensure, insofar as reasonably possible, the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information at all times. However, since no method of transmission over the internet (nor electronic storage) is 100% secure, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Third Parties

Our model relies on the sharing of personal data (for example, a candidate’s accountancy qualifications) with a third party (the customer who purchased the test). Personal data is also processed by the third parties we use for cloud web hosting, analytics and payment processing. These third parties use cookies and other tracking technologies on our website.

Transfer of Data

It is our understanding that (i) our third party arrangements for cloud web hosting, analytics and payment processing result in personal data being transferred to the US, and (ii) the recipient entities are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

Policy Changes

We review our privacy policy regularly and will place any updates on our website and in relevant communications.
