Privacy Policy for Jaspar Group

This privacy policy sets out how Jaspar Group manages any information that you give Jaspar Group. Jaspar Group is committed to ensuring that your privacy and ‘personal information’ is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Jaspar Group may change this policy by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

The Website uses cookies for record keeping purposes and to improve the service to you, but none of the data collected through cookies can be used to identify you. You can set your Internet Browser so that it does not accept cookies. However this will mean that you will be limiting the scope of services provided to you and you will not be able to take full advantage of the Website.

What we collect
The personal data we may collect includes:
• Name, address, telephone and email address
• Your birth date, gender and title
• Information about your source of funding and proof of identification

Jaspar Group does not usually process sensitive personal data (other than someone’s nationality, which is contained within their passport); however, it may be possible to determine sensitive personal data about someone based on information held about them.

Jaspar Group also processes personal data (such as names, address, telephone and email) on individual contacts at businesses and other organisations (such as professional advisers).

Collecting data
Newsletters and occasional mailings are made to those of the users, who have given their prior consent to it. If you do not wish to continue to receive such mailings or would like to subscribe to them, please contact the data controller. We may also collect details relating to:

• A contract related to that individual (i.e. to provide property search services);
• Complying with legal obligations
• To pursue interest of operating and promoting the success of the Jaspar Group business (such as retaining contact details for maintaining business relationships and marketing).

Jaspar Group will contact individuals by email or text if you have opted in to receive these communications.

Jaspar Group will occasionally email other organisations without their consent to marketing our services. We believe these may be of interest or relevant on the basis of past or present relationships or to build new ones.

You can unsubscribe from marketing by emailing info@jaspargroup.com with the subject line “Unsubscribe.”

Cookies and the Jaspar Group website
The Website contains links to other websites. We do not endorse or confirm the contents of any such website and accept no liability or responsibility for the contents or the use of such website. Please read the privacy statements upon entry to a linked website, as a matter of practice.

Recipients of personal data
Personal data you provide will be kept private and confidential and will not be disclosed or shared with other data controllers without your consent, other than in exceptional situations. For example:

• if Jaspar Group is legally required to disclose personal data, such as to law enforcement, or pursuant to a request from a regulator or a court order; or
• (if necessary) with professional advisers such as lawyers or accountants

Third parties who provide professional services to Jaspar Group (for example, IT providers and accountants) may on occasion have access to personal data held by Jaspar Group.  However, these service providers will only access personal data on Jaspar Group’s behalf, for specified purposes, and in accordance with strict instructions.

Jaspar Group only uses third party service providers who have provided sufficient guarantees that your personal data will be kept safe and will always ensure there is a written contract in place which protects your personal data and prevents it from being used for any other purpose.

How long Jaspar Group stores personal data for
We anticipate that we will retain your data for no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of the retention period, upon conclusion of any contract we may have with you, or until we are no longer legally required to retain it, it will be reviewed and deleted, unless there is some special reason for keeping it. Occasionally, we may continue to use data without further notice to you. This will only be the case where any such data is anonymised and you cannot be identified as being associated with that data.

How personal data is kept safe
Jaspar Group takes care of your information and has security measures in place to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, damaged or destroyed, altered or disclosed. These include both physical security measures (such as keeping paper files in secure premises and shredding them when no longer required) and electronic security technologies (such as device encryption and anti-virus software).

In the unlikely event of a data breach, Jaspar Group will notify you, the ICO and any other relevant regulatory body of a breach when legally required to do so.
