Environmental Policy

Ten-Percent.co.uk Limited is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. The energy for our offices comes from 100% renewable energy sources (or so our providers tell us!), we switch off any equipment we can where possible and we supply our staff when necessary with electric company cars. We are also a paperless office, aiming at 100% paperless as soon as possible.

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
  • Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of the source of power requirement.
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst customers and suppliers.
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company

If you have any comments on our policies above please email Jonathan Fagan, our MD, at cv@ten-percent.co.uk. We are always open to suggestions on improving our standards.

Our Privacy Promise

You can always trust the Interim Lawyers platform and Ten-Percent.co.uk Limited. Your personal information is just that – personal, so we always treat it with the highest standards of security and confidentiality. Rest assured, we never pass on, sell or swap your information with any other company for their own marketing purposes.

For over 20 years, we have been committed to looking after your data and we will always put you first.

What information do we hold about you?

When you register with us for job vacancies or send us a CV we obviously collect information about you. If you browse our website, we may collect information about your website visits using ‘cookies’, although the only thing we use this for is website analytics (via Google).

How do we use your information?

Your information allows us to advise you of any vacancies cropping up that may be of interest.

We would also love to keep you up to date with our monthly newsletters by email and communications via social media.

If you already receive our marketing communications, we’ll continue to send you these unless we think you are no longer interested in hearing from us or you ask us to stop. We hope you enjoy hearing from us just as much as we enjoy putting our updates together, and we promise never to bombard you with too many communications (although during the summer months our conveyancing locums may well disagree with this statement!).

All third party service providers (eg backup hosting companies such as Microsoft) are carefully vetted and trusted by us, and your data is protected by our stringent security and confidentiality measures as well as applicable data protection laws. We only provide our service providers with the data that they require in order to perform the services that we have employed them to do – they will never use your data for any other purposes.
