    The use of the JCK Websites

  • As is true of most websites, the JCK websites collect certain information automatically and store it in log files. The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other information about the use of the Websites, including a history of the pages you view. We use this information to help us design our site to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyse trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences. The Websites also use cookies and web beacons. These do not track users when they cross to third-party websites and do not provide targeted advertising to them, and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

    JCK has a legitimate interest in understanding how members employees, potential employees, customers and potential customers use the Websites. This assists us with providing more relevant information on our products and services, with communicating value to our sponsors and corporate members, and providing appropriate staffing to meet member employee and customer needs.

    Collection and use of personal data

  • JCK collects personal information about its existing (potential) customers, business relations, employment candidates and employees, social media followers, website visitors, physical visitors on our local sites. Regarding our website visitors, this information is mostly limited to the types of information that can be found on a business card: first name; last name; job title; employer name; work address; work email; and work phone number. We use this information to provide the required information to other JCK businesses and the right customer contacts, as well as other parties related to our business.

    We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which JCK collected it unless it is reasonably considered to be needed for use due to another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If JCK need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, JCK will only do so if legally permitted and with appropriate notice.

    JCK does not and will never sell any personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of JCK services.

    Transfer of personal data to outside of the EU

  • JCK has its headquarters in the UK. Information we collect from you will be processed mainly within the European Union, but this may also take place in countries outside of the European Union where we have local subsidiaries (Canada, USA, and Singapore).

    The United States has not sought nor received a finding of ‘adequacy’ from the European Union under Article 45 of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). We rely on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. JCK collects and transfers to non-members of the European Union personal data only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; to comply with a legal obligation; or to fulfil a compelling legitimate interest of JCK in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. We endeavour to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and use it only in a way that is consistent with your relationship with JCK, and the practices described in this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. JCK also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate.

    JCK will only transfer your personal information where we are satisfied that it will be subject to an appropriate level of protection and in accordance with any safeguards that may be legally required.

Also, where appropriate in order to facilitate this cross-border data exchange in a GDPR accountable manner.

We maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards. We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information to provide benefits or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We commit to taking appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our employees’ privacy responsibilities.

    The security of your personal data is also based on keeping the login details of your account (username and password) confidential. Never share your login details with anyone else and always take care when using them.

    Data storage and retention

  • Your personal data is stored by JCK on its servers and on the servers of the cloud-based database management services JCK engages. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval. JCK will not engage third parties to mail information to you.

    Retention period

  • JCK retains data for the duration of employment of its employees and the customers’ or others business relationships with JCK and for a period thereafter to allow you to recover employment information or accounts if you decide to renew, to analyse the data for our own operations, and for historical and archiving purposes associated with our history as a business partner. JCK will not retain your data longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was processed, unless the data must be retained longer in order to comply with legal obligations (such as the fiscal obligation to store data for seven years). The length of time for which data is retained depends on the nature of the data and the purposes for which it was processed. The retention period can thus differ for each purpose and for each country.
