Privacy Policy

At Aspire Capital we are committed to protecting privacy.  Where possible, data collected from a website user is processed anonymously.  Any personal information which is submitted by a user in the course of using the website will be safeguarded under the Data Protection Act 1998. This Act regulates the processing of information relating to individuals, including the holding, use or disclosure of such information. Our data is stored in a secure database protected by a number of access controls.

News alerts

The Aspire Capital website offers a service whereby users may sign up to receive news alerts in their mail inbox. In order to provide this service, we must hold details of those users who request this service. However, we only use these details to provide the service the individual has requested and other closely related purposes. When people do subscribe to our services, they can cancel their subscription at any time and are given an easy way of doing this.

Job applications

When an individual applies online to work at Aspire Capital, we only use the information supplied to us to process their application. Should we want to disclose information to a third party, for example where we want to take up a reference, we will not do so without first informing the applicant (unless the disclosure is required by law).

Personal information about unsuccessful candidates will be held for 12 months after the recruitment exercise has been completed, it will then be destroyed or deleted.

Once an individual has taken up employment with Aspire Capital, we will compile a file relating to their employment. The information contained in this will be kept secure and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to that individual’s employment. Upon termination of employment with Aspire Capital, we will retain the file in accordance with the requirements of our retention schedule and then it will be deleted.

These third party websites have their own privacy policies, including cookies, and we encourage individuals to review them. They will govern the use of any personal information submitted or which is collected by cookies whilst visiting such websites.  We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and use of such websites is at the user’s own risk.
