In particular, if you apply for a role with the Firm and fail to provide certain Personal Data when requested which is necessary for the Firm to comply with its legal or contractual obligations, or pursuant to the Firm’s legitimate interests to manage its business appropriately, the Firm will not be able to consider the application and/or process the application successfully.

  1. How Information is Used

Your Personal Data will be used by us for the following purposes:






Please note that you have a right to object to processing of your Personal Data where that processing is carried out for our legitimate interests or for direct marketing. However, please note that the Firm may not be able to fulfil this request in all instances.

  1. Information We Disclose

We may share your Personal Data with selected third-party business partners, affiliates, associates or subcontractors in order to achieve the purposes described in HOW INFORMATION IS USED, above.

This may include sharing your information with (i) other entities in the North Rock Capital Management and Lighthouse Investment Partners group; (ii) financial institutions, pension plan institutions, insurance companies, consultant and professional advisors (including law firms); (iii) compliance solution providers, including electronic communications and trade surveillance platforms; (iv) other service providers such as, payroll administrators, benefits providers, background check vendors, assessment platform providers, and administrators and information technology systems providers involved in the provision of services to the Firm and/or its personnel; (v) independent public accountants and auditors, authorized representatives of internal control functions such as, audit, legal and/or corporate security; or (vi) financial services regulators, local tax authorities and any governmental or administrative body where the Firm determines that it is necessary or desirable in order to comply with applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations or to protect the rights or property of the Firm or any of its employees.

We also reserve the right to share your Personal Data with a third party that is looking to acquire, or does acquire, all or part of the assets of the Firm, or that succeeds the Firm in carrying on all or a part of the Firm or services provided to or by it whether by merger, acquisition, re-organization, outsourcing, insourcing or otherwise.

  1. NON-UK PROCESSING AND International Transfers

The global nature of our business means that we may contract with service providers, or otherwise transfer your information to recipients, outside of the UK. This may include a recipient located in a country which may not be subject to the same data protection laws as companies based in the UK. In these circumstances, we will take steps to make sure the Personal Data is provided an adequate level of protection, and will implement appropriate safeguards.

The Firm ensures its data processors provide sufficient safeguards for all Personal Data processed, regardless of each provider’s location. Where we transfer Personal Data outside of the UK, we will ensure that the Personal Data is transferred to a recipient:

  • established in a country which has been deemed to have adequate data protection laws by the UK (an adequacy decision);

  • with which we have entered Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs), as relevant, which oblige the recipient to protect your Personal Data per the principles of UK GDPR;

  • from which we have sought assurances from the recipient that they have Binding Corporate Rules (BCRs) in place; or

  • in relation to which we can rely on a derogation for the transfer (e.g., where the transfer is necessary for the defence of legal claims, or otherwise obtain consent).

The Firm has entered into SCCs for transfers of Personal Data to its affiliates outside of the UK.

For further information in relation to these safeguards, please contact us using the contact details below.

  1. Retention of Your Information

We retain Personal Data as long as it is necessary and relevant for us. We determine the retention period based upon the longest of the following:

  • as long as the Personal Data is necessary for the relevant services and activities that we undertake with you, or period set out in any relevant agreement that you enter with us;

  • the length of time required or is otherwise reasonable to meet our legal and regulatory obligations; or

  • any period in which investigations or litigation may arise in respect of our relationship with you.

In particular, further to the Firm’s recruitment process, where an application is unsuccessful your Personal Data will be securely destroyed 12 months after the end of the application / recruitment process, unless you request otherwise.

Where an application is successful, the Personal Data gathered during the recruitment / application process will be transferred to your personnel file and retained during the course of your relationship with the Firm. The periods for which your Personal Data will be held in these circumstances will be provided to you in a separate data protection notice.

  1. Your Rights

You have certain rights in relation to your Personal Data, including the right to:

  • request access to Personal Data we hold about you;

  • the correction of your Personal Data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete;

  • request that we erase your Personal Data;

  • object to us using / holding your Personal Data if we have no legitimate reason to do so;

  • request that we restrict the processing of your Personal Data – i.e., we would need to secure and retain the data for your benefit but not otherwise use it; 

  • withdraw your consent at any time; and

  • the portability of Personal Data – i.e., ask for a copy of your Personal Data to be provided to you, or a third party, in a digital format.

We will respond to your request in writing, or orally if requested, as soon as practicable and in any event not more than within one month after receipt of your request. In exceptional cases, we may extend this period by two months, and we will tell you why. We may request proof of identification to verify your request. These rights are not absolute, they do not always apply, and exemptions may be applicable and we may request additional information to better understand your request. For more details in relation to your rights, including how to exercise them, please contact us using the contact details below.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your Personal Data with the data protection authority – in the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) whose website is available at

  1. Consequences of not Providing Personal Data

Where we require your Personal Data necessary for a legal or contractual requirement, failure to provide this information means we may not be able to provide the requested services to you, enter a business relationship with you (or your firm) or to consider you for prospective employment. We will tell you upon request whether it is a statutory or contractual requirement to give us the information and the consequences of not providing the information.
