We are committed to keeping your information secure and managing it in accordance with our legal responsibilities under privacy and data protection laws where we operate. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use personal data about you.


Tasset Advisors takes your privacy seriously and will only use the personal information you have provided for purposes where we have a legitimate interest* or where you have given us your explicit consent*. (*Terms as defined by the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018).

You may choose to provide personal information to us when you initiate contact or by responding to an enquiry from us. You may be asked to provide certain information about yourself including your name, title, postal address, telephone number and/or email address. If you are in contact with us about a job opportunity you may be asked to provide additional information about your employment history (e.g.: a curriculum vitae), and, in due course, compensation details and professional references.

From Third Parties

We may receive information about you from third parties. Our clients and contacts may also provide us with information about you.


We may also collect information automatically about your use of our websites using Cookies and other technology (for full details of what we use see the section below on “Cookies”). To that effect, we use your IP address (a series of numbers that identifies a computer on the internet) to collect, among other things, internet traffic data and data regarding your browser type and computer. If you do not want to receive Cookies, you may reject them by using your browser settings, provided they are not necessary for delivery of our website or services to visitors (for help with how to do this see the section below on “Cookies”).


We will use your information for the specific purpose(s) for which it has been provided or collected by us, for example:

  • To provide information regarding the services we offer, e.g. whether we can assist you with matters relating to our services.
  • To contact you to introduce you to other professionals, relevant to your requirements and with your approval.
  • To provide our clients and candidates with executive search and consulting services.
  • To comply with our statutory and regulatory obligations.
  • To verify your identity for anti-money laundering purposes.
  • To protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions.
  • To enforce our Terms of Business and otherwise manage our business.
  • To deal with your feedback, query or complaint.
  • To register your interest in a hiring opportunity.

We may also use information we collect about you for marketing and event purposes, for example:

  • To contact you about relevant events we may undertake or participate in.

Information Sharing

We do not sell or share your personal information outside Tasset Advisors and any other companies explicitly agreed with you. We share your personal information as described in this statement.

Your information may be shared with organisations located in other countries around the world, with your approval. As privacy laws in other countries may not be equivalent to those in your home country, we only make arrangements to transfer data overseas where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect any information held in that country or that the service provider acts at all times in compliance with applicable privacy laws.

We may from time to time be required to disclose information about you to law enforcement bodies, agencies or third parties under a legal requirement or court order.  We act responsibly and take account of your interests when responding to any such requests.

Processing Grounds

We will only process your personal information in pursuance of our legitimate interest. If we process any special categories of information i.e. information revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, processing of genetic or biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying individuals, health data, or data concerning your sex life or sexual orientation, we must have a further lawful basis for the processing. This may include where you have given us your explicit consent to do so or where you have made the information public.


Once you become a contact of Tasset Advisors, we may use your personal information to send you information and invitations to events that we think may be of interest to you or your business. It is within our legitimate interests as a company to use your information in this way. If you have consented to receive marketing material, you may opt out at a later date and you have the right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes.

If you do not wish to receive any marketing material or communications after you submit or provide your details, please contact us using the details below to state that you do not wish to be contacted for marketing purposes.

If you change your mind about being contacted by us in the future or change address, or if any information that we hold about you is inaccurate or out-of-date, please let us know by emailing

Third Party Service Providers

We engage third party service providers to perform a variety of business operations on our behalf. We may share your personal information with them but only with the personal information they need in order to perform the services we request and we require they protect this information appropriately and not use it for any other purpose.

For example, we may rely on third party service providers to:

  • Fulfil your service requests and answer your questions.
  • Host our IT platforms (including cloud based platforms).
  • Host our website and deliver our email or other communications.
  • Manage payments or take other actions on your behalf.
  • When required by law and/or government authorities.
  • Protect, defend or exercise the rights and property of Tasset Advisors Limited (including enforcing our Terms of Business).

We will take all reasonable steps necessary to ensure your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


We have in place administrative and technical measures designed to guard against and minimise the risk of loss, misuse or unauthorised processing or disclosure of the personal information that we hold.

Where we transfer information to third parties to enable them to process it on our behalf, we ensure that the providers meet or exceed the relevant legal or regulatory requirements for transferring data to them and keeping it secure.

We will also ensure that where information is transferred to a country or international organisation outside of the UK / EEA, we will comply with the relevant legal rules governing such transfers.

As no internet-based communications can be guaranteed as totally secure, we cannot be held responsible for unauthorised or unintended access that is beyond our control.

Personal Information Retention Period

We keep your personal information no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.


Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018, you have certain rights in relation to your personal information, although those rights will not apply in all cases or to all information that we hold about you. These may include the right to request that we:

  • Provide you with a copy of the personal information we hold about you.
  • Update or correct your personal information.
  • Delete personal information we hold.
  • Restrict the way in which we process your information.
  • Consider any valid objections to our processing of your personal information.
  • Provide information you have given us to a third party provider of services.

We will respond to your request (including providing information on whether the rights apply in the particular circumstances) within the applicable statutory time period. If we are not sure of your identity, we may require you to provide further information in order for us to confirm who you are. Please note that we may, where permitted under applicable law, charge an administrative fee for providing information requested.

In certain circumstances we may not be able to provide you with access to some of your personal information, but where appropriate we will notify you of this.

Please note that we may need to continue to hold and process information to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
