Current version of policy V3.4
Updated: 22nd January 2019
This website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulations 2016 (“GDPR”), the data controller is Jumar Solutions Limited (Company No. 02333415) of Jumar House, Pinewood Business Park, Coleshill Road, Solihull, West Midlands B37 7HG. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you.
We aim to provide excellent recruitment and IT solutions services to our customers and candidates. We aim to create the best match between open vacancies and candidates seeking employment. In the case of our solutions business, we aim to create the best possible solution to meet the requirements of our clients. To do this, we will need to process data about you.
We hold and process your data in pursuit of our legitimate interest in providing services to our candidates and clients. “Legitimate interest” means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). It is in our legitimate interests to decide whether to appoint you or put you forward for a particular role because it is beneficial to our business to seek to fulfil vacancies. You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
Once we place a candidate with one of our clients, the data is held as part of the contractual and legal obligation that we have as a recruitment agency and recruitment business as defined in the Employment Agencies and Employment Business Regulations 2003.
Personal data (or personal information) means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity of the individual has been removed (anonymous data). We may collect, use, store, transfer and process different kinds of personal data about you including the following:
We do not intentionally collect any sensitive or special categories of personal data (as defined in GDPR Article 9) about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we intentionally collect any information about criminal convictions and offences. However, if you provide us with any sensitive personal data as a part of a job application or screening process if required for a particular job, we will request your explicit consent to process this data.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (e.g. to provide you with services). In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the relevant time.
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
You may give us your personal data by filling in forms on our websites “www.jumar-solutions.com” and/or “www.jumar-recruitment.com” (“Websites”) or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide (whether directly or indirectly via third parties such as those listed below) when you:

As you interact with our Websites, we will automatically collect technical data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We will collect this personal data by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We retain data on candidates for a period of two years from our most recent meaningful contact, unless you request otherwise. This period is extended to six years, if we place you in a role. If that role is a contract position, this is six years from the end of the placement. If it is a permanent placement, it is for a period of six years from the start date of your employment with our client.
If you apply for a role via our Websites or via a third-party’s website, we will hold your data for up to a month – during which time we will make reasonable endeavours to contact you. If we make contact and mutually agree that we will retain your details for that role and/or any subsequent future roles, the two-year policy will apply as above.
If we do not manage to make contact, or if we mutually agree not to continue holding your data, we will delete it within a month.
If you exercise your right to erasure, we will retain all information we are legal obligated to do so (such as employment contract data or financial payment), for the period that is set out by that legal obligation. We may also keep your name and the bare minimum of contact details so that we do not contact you or re-enter your details inadvertently in the future. Where technology allows, any data that we retain following an erasure request, will be anonymised.
When we register a new candidate on our database, we will send a copy of our data processing document entitled ‘Jumar and your data’ which gives further details on data retention periods and our data protection policies.
