JustEng LTD PRIVACY NOTICE
JustEng Ltd (”We”)(“The Company”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This notice sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a new regulation which replaces the Data Protection Regulation (Directive 95/46/EC). The Regulation aims to harmonise data protection legislation across EU member states, enhancing privacy rights for individuals and providing a strict framework within which commercial organisations can legally operate.
Even though the UK has expressed its intention to leave the EU in March 2019, the GDPR will be applicable in the UK from 25th May 2018. The Government intends for the GDPR to continue in UK law post Brexit and has also introduced a Data Protection Bill to replace the current Data Protection Act in due course.
Your new rights under the GDPR are set out in this notice.
Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
For the purposes of data protection legislation in force from time to time the data controller is JustEng Ltd, 2 Prospect House, 399 Hendon Way, London NW4 3LH
Our Data Protection Officer is Omid Asgari (Director).
Who we are and what we do

Our Legitimate Business Interests
Our legitimate interests in collecting and retaining your personal data is described below:
As a recruitment agency we introduce candidates to clients for permanent employment, temporary placements or independent professional contracts. The exchange of personal data of our candidates and our client contacts is a fundamental, essential part of this process.
In order to support our candidates’ career aspirations and our clients’ resourcing needs we require a store of candidate and client personal data containing historical information as well as current resourcing requirements.
To maintain, expand and develop our business we need to record the personal data of prospective candidates and client contacts.
With consent, we will share your personal information with clients for the purpose of introducing candidates to them and candidates for the purpose of arranging interviews and appointments. Should we want or need to rely on consent to lawfully process your data we will request your consent orally or by email for the specific activity we require consent for. Where consent is the lawful basis for our processing you have the right to withdraw your consent to this particular processing at any time.
Disclosure of your information inside and outside of the EEA
Your CV and related information will be sent to prospective employers but only where you give your consent. Such employers may be located both inside and outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
We may also release information relating to you to regulatory or law enforcement authorities, if required to do so.
We will disclose your personal information to third parties if JustEng Ltd or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
Where we store and process your personal data
We employ appropriate security measures to help protect your Personal Information and guard against access by unauthorised persons. All information stored on our recruitment software is secured through the Microsoft Azure Infrastructure and located at two data centres locations within Europe. Our primary centre is located in Microsoft’s Western European centre, and these facilities are secured by a series of measures, including (but not limited to) biometric access, security alarm systems and round-the-clock security staff.
Hard copy information is stored in secure locked storage. We may also use commercial-grade cloud storage (Dropbox Business) to store personal data relating to you. Dropbox is fully GDPR compliant.
We do not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make Personal Information commercially available to any third party.
Retention of your data
We understand our legal duty to retain accurate data and only retain personal data for as long as we need it for our legitimate business interests and that you are happy for us to do so.
We do the following to try to ensure our data is accurate:
· Prior to making an introduction we check that we have accurate information about you.
· We keep in touch with you so you can let us know of changes to your personal data.
You may withdraw your consent at any time. It is important to us that you are in control of your own information. As a result, we offer the following controls:
You may request access to or copies of the Personal Information that we hold about you. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us at email@example.com or the address above.
If you believe that any information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We will take steps to seek to correct or update any information if we are satisfied that the information we hold is inaccurate. You may request that we restrict our processing;
You may request that your Personal Information be deleted, where it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it is being processed and provided there is no other lawful basis for which we may continue to process such information;
To the extent we are processing your Personal Information to meet our legitimate interests (as set out above), you may object to the processing of your Personal Information by us. If we are unable to demonstrate our legitimate grounds for that processing, we will no longer process your Personal Information for those purposes;
You may object to our processing as set out above;
You may withdraw any consent given to processing.
The GDPR provides you with the following rights. To:
· Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
· Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
· Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
· Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
· Request the transfer of your personal information to another party in certain formats, if practicable.
· Make a complaint to a supervisory body which in the United Kingdom is the Information Commissioner’s Office. The ICO can be contacted through this link: https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
Access to information
The Data Protection Act 1998 and the GDPR give you the right to access information held about you. We also encourage you to contact us to ensure your data is accurate and complete.
Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act (and the GDPR once it is in force).
