The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC), with effect from 25th May 2018.

Remember, GDPR is not being introduced to stop registered contractors from finding work.
HANDLING CONTACT DATA
When an Agency, Contractor or Hirer register with TempRocket, they are doing so in order to be contacted by other registered clients about job opportunities. Therefore, as a business we can continue processing the data supplied by workers who register with TempRocket, as it is in their, and our, legitimate interest to do so.
Furthermore, we will continue to give our registered contractors control over their contact preference options, including the option to delete their account. When a contractor deletes their account via the website, we immediately remove their details from our database. All personally identifiable information (PII) is completely removed from our systems within 30 days. We will also provide a way for our clients to know of any contractors who have deleted their details, via the Agency Admin Control Panel. You are responsible for updating your own records in order to remain compliant.
HOW LONG DOES TEMPROCKET KEEP DATA FOR?
All client data is held for as long as individuals keep their accounts and is deleted upon request. See ‘Handling contact data’ for more information.
