We collect a variety of personal data in order to provide our advisory services. This data is processed on the lawful basis of legitimate interest and is stored in a secure, proprietary and highly confidential database accessible only by Jamesbeck employees. It typically includes employment history, degree(s) and other qualifications, languages and other skills as well as contact information. It may also include, age, nationality and gender, compensation details, a record of our contact history with you and comments, views or references from third parties. We advise you not to provide information that may be deemed sensitive on your CV as we will retain any documents that you have provided if those documents are necessary to the performance of our services. In addition to information provided by you, we may gather information from LinkedIn, Google, Company websites, press and periodicals and other publicly available sources. Selectively, we may hold personal data if relevant to a specific search and subject to your explicit consent.
By contacting us and/or speaking to us you choose to provide Jamesbeck with your personal information, you indicate your willingness to share with and have your information stored by Jamesbeck and to be considered, when appropriate, for one of Jamesbeck’s confidential executive searches. Summary biographical data may be shared with a client in the context of a particular search, for example to identify the most highly qualified and talented individuals within the markets we serve or to illustrate a typical profile within the individual search parameters. No representation is made about your interest or availability to contemplate such a role at this stage. Before presenting further details or indicating any potential interest you might have, we would make direct contact with you.
Your personal information may also be used anonymously and in the aggregate in order to put together industry, marketing and employment statistics. Used in this matter, your personal information becomes non-identifying.

Our internal policies and procedures are designed to help ensure we safeguard the privacy and accuracy of all data we collect or process. To the extent that we disclose personal data to clients or third parties, we will request that they properly protect the security and confidentiality of such information and otherwise process such data in accordance with applicable law.
We will generally keep your personal data for no longer than 10 years after which it will be destroyed if it is no longer required for the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.
You have the right to obtain access to your personal data; to have it updated or corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete; to request that we restrict its processing or remove your data entirely from our system. When asked to remove a record from our database, Jamesbeck will retain minimal information to ensure we do not contact you or collect such information again or to keep a record of any information disclosed to our clients.
If you would like to exercise any of your rights mentioned in the preceding paragraph please contact us at [email protected].
