1.0 USER PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION
User privacy and data protection are human rights and we have a duty of care to the people within our data. Data is a liability, it should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary. We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information
This e-mail and any attachments are strictly confidential and exclusively for the intended recipient. They may contain privileged and confidential information and if you are not the intended recipient, you must not copy or distribute them.

2.0 RELEVANT LEGISLATION
Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
- UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)
- EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
- EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)
This site’s compliance with the above legislation, all of which are stringent in nature, means that this site is compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well. If you are unsure about whether this site is compliant with your own country of residences’ specific data protection and user privacy legislation you should contact our data protection officer (details of whom can be found in section 7.0) for clarification.
3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although Google Analytics records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. Google Analytics also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you, but Google does not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third-party data processor (see section 5.0 below).
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop Google Analytics from tracking any part of your visit to pages within our website.
3.1 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the email firstname.lastname@example.org on our website, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to or be processed by any of the third-party data processors defined in section 5.0.
3.2 Applying to work at John Rowan and Partners
If you submit an application to work at John Rowan and Partners, we will use your personal information to process your application and to produce and monitor recruitment statistics. We will not take up references without your prior permission. We will not share or disclose your information unless you have given us your consent, or we are required to by law.
We will retain personal information relating to unsuccessful applicants for no longer than 12 months, for use in the event of an appeal.
4.0 HOW WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
In the near future, we aim to change the storage of data to a pseudonymous fashion meaning that the data would require additional processing using a separately stored ‘key’ before it could be used to identify an individual.
Pseudonymisation is a recent requirement of the GDPR. We are committed to keeping it as a high priority and will implement it on this website as soon as we are able to.
4.1 Contacting us about your personal information
We will be as open as possible with you about the personal information we hold about you, and if something is wrong we want to work with you to put it right.
You have the right to have inaccurate/outdated information amended, deleted, or destroyed. If any of your circumstances change, please contact John Rowan and Partners. If you want to find what information we are storing, you will be required to complete a SAR form before we discuss your data which can be found on our website here – https://www.jrp.co.uk/privacy-policy/
5.0 OUR THIRD PARTY PROCESSORS
We use a number of third parties to process personal data on our behalf. These third parties have been carefully chosen and all of them comply with the legislation set out in section 2.0. All 3 of these third parties are based in either UK or the USA and are EU-U.S Privacy Shield compliant.
6.0 DATA BREACHES
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third-party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
