From time to time we may send you marketing information that we feel may be of interest to you, or to ask for assistance with roles we are recruiting for e.g. asking for referrals. We may use your data for the reasons listed below (this is not exhaustive):

We may therefore disclose this (suitably anonymised where relevant) data to Clients where this is contractually required or it is requested by the Client for their own compliance purpose.

- We may collect other sensitive personal data about you, such as health-related information, religious affiliation, or details of any criminal convictions if this is appropriate in accordance with local laws and is required for a role that you are interested in applying for.

Your Legal Rights
One of the GDPR’s main objectives is to protect and clarify the rights of EU citizens and individuals in the EU with regards to data privacy. This means that you retain various rights in respect of your data including the right to access, correct, erase or restrict the personal data that you have given to us.
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). You may ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and request us to modify, update or Delete such information.
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. You also have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the correction unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Where appropriate, we will also tell you which third parties we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.
- Request erasure of your personal information. You have the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances.
- Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

- processed them;

- it is necessary for the data to be erased in order for us to comply with our legal obligations as a data controller; or
- if we process the data because we believe it necessary to do so for our legitimate interests, you
- object to the processing and we are unable to demonstrate overriding legitimate grounds for our continued processing
- We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for one of the following reasons:
- to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
- to comply with legal obligations or for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;
for public health reasons in the public interest;
for archival, research or statistical purposes; or
to exercise or defend a legal claim
- When complying with a valid request for the erasure of data we will take all reasonably practicable steps to Delete the relevant data
- Normally, the information must meet one of the following criteria:

- The “legitimate interests” and “direct marketing” categories above are the ones most likely to apply to our Website Users, Candidates, Clients and Suppliers. If your objection relates to us processing your personal data because we deem it necessary for your legitimate interests, we must act on your objection by ceasing the activity in question unless: – we can show that we have compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests; or – we are processing your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.
- If your objection relates to direct marketing, we must act on your objection by ceasing this activity. To stop receiving marketing or to change your marketing preferences please contact our Data Processing Representative, Rosie O’Callaghan at [email protected]
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that we can only continue to store your data and will not be able to carry out any further processing activities with it until either: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) you consent; or (iii) further processing is necessary for either the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another individual, or reasons of important EU or Member State public interest. The circumstances in which you are entitled to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data are:
- where you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we are processing about you. In this case, our processing of your personal data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is verified;
- where you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. Here, you can request that the data be restricted while we verify our grounds for processing your personal data;
- where our processing of your data is unlawful, but you would prefer us to restrict our processing of it rather than erasing it; and
- where we have no further need to process your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.
- Request the transfer of your personal information to another party. If you wish, you have the right to transfer your personal data between data controllers. In effect, this means that you are able to transfer your JasperRose account details to another party. This right of data portability applies to: (i) personal data that we process automatically (i.e. without any human intervention); (ii) personal data provided by you; and (iii) personal data that we process based on your consent or in order to fulfil a contract.
- Right to complain: You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).

Please note, you will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost where legally permissible Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
To get in touch about the rights of access, correction, erasure or restriction please get in touch with our Data Protection Representative [email protected]. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event within one month, occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.
How do we store and transfer your data internationally?
- Your data may be transferred:
- to third parties (such as advisers or other Suppliers to the JasperRose business);

- to Clients within your country who may, in turn, transfer your data internationally;
- to a cloud-based storage provider; and

- We want to make sure that your data are stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the European Economic Area or EEA (i.e. the Member States of the European Union, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example:
- by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to data controllers and processors in jurisdictions without adequate data protection laws; or
- by signing up to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework for the transfer of personal data from entities in the EU to entities in the United States of America or any equivalent agreement in respect of other jurisdictions; or
- transferring your data to a country where there has been a finding of adequacy by the European Commission in respect of that country’s levels of data protection via its legislation; or
- where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between ourselves and a third party and the transfer is in your interests for the purposes of that contract (for example, if we need to transfer data outside the EEA in order to meet our obligations under that contract if you are a Client of ours); or
- where you have consented to the data transfer.
- To ensure that your personal information receives an adequate level of protection, we have put in place appropriate procedures with the third parties we share your personal data with to ensure that your personal information is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the law on data protection.
Automated Decision Making or Profiling:

Our Legitimate Interests
Our legitimate interests in collecting and retaining your personal data are described below:
- Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR states that we can process your data where it “is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data.”
- The legitimate interests for collecting and retaining your personal data should help us to provide you a more efficient and tailored service. As per the information above you have the right to object to us processing your personal data on this basis (see section above, “Your Legal Rights”)
- We believe it’s reasonable to expect that if you are looking for employment or have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site (e.g. LinkedIn), you are happy for us to collect and use your personal data to offer or provide our recruitment services to you, share that information with prospective employers and assess your skills in relation to the vacancies we are working on. If you are close to securing a role through JasperRose, your prospective employer may also want to verify any information you’ve given us (such as the results from psychometric/skills tests) or they may want us to confirm your references, qualifications and criminal records. As a recruitment agency, we introduce Candidates to Clients for employment opportunities. The exchange of personal data of our Candidates and our Client contacts is a fundamental, essential part of this process. We need to do these things so that we can function as a profit-making business, and to help you secure a new role.
- We want to provide you with relevant market insight to read and specific roles which are relevant to your next move. We therefore think it’s reasonable for us to process your data to make sure that we send you the most appropriate content.
- We need to use your data for our internal administrative activities, like payroll and invoicing where relevant to ensure our service is smooth and we can provide the relevant service to you and other Candidates.
- In order to support our Candidates’ career aspirations and our Clients’ resourcing needs, we require a database of Candidate and Client personal data containing historical information as well as current resourcing requirements.
- To ensure that we provide you with the best service possible, we store your personal data and/or the personal data of individual contacts at your organisation as well as keeping records of our conversations, meetings, registered jobs and placements. From time to time, we may also ask you to undertake a customer satisfaction or feedback survey. We deem these uses of your data to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation providing various recruitment services to you.
- In order to support our Candidates’ career aspirations and our Clients’ resourcing needs, we require a database of Candidate and Client personal data containing historical information as well as current resourcing requirements.
- We use and store the personal data of individuals within your organisation in order to facilitate the receipt of services from you as one of our Suppliers. We also hold your financial details, so that we can pay you for your services. We deem all such activities to be necessary within the range of our legitimate interests as a recipient of your services.
- If you have been put down by a Candidate or a prospective Employee as one of their referees, we use your personal data in order to contact you for a reference. This is a part of our compliance procedure, we see this to be necessary for our legitimate interests as an organisation offering recruitment services and employing people as a business.
- If a Candidate or Employee member has stated your details as an emergency contact, we will use these details to contact you in the case of an accident or emergency. This is a vital to ensure our Candidates and Employees have a next of kin to contact in an emergency, and so is necessary for our legitimate interests.
Should we want or need to rely on consent to lawfully process your data we will request your consent orally, by email or by an online process for the specific activity we require consent for and record your response on our system. Where consent is the lawful basis for our processing you have the right to withdraw your consent to this particular processing at any time (as set out above under Your legal rights). Depending on exactly what we are doing with your information, this consent will be opt-in consent or soft opt-in consent.
Establishing, exercising or defending legal claims:
- Sometimes it may be necessary for us to process personal data and, where appropriate and in accordance with local laws and requirements, sensitive personal data in connection with exercising or defending legal claims. Article 9(2)(f) of the GDPR allows this where the processing “is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity”.
- This may arise for example where we need to take legal advice in relation to legal proceedings or are required by law to preserve or disclose certain information as part of the legal process.
