The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a privacy and data protection regulation in the European Union (EU) became enforceable from May 25th 2018 and requires no enabling legislation so automatically becomes binding and applicable on that date. The GDPR imposes new obligations on organisations that control or process relevant personal data and introduces new rights and protections for EU data subjects. The GDPR applies to data processing carried out by organisations operating within the EU. It also applies to organisations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU. Robson Kay will comply with the GDPR as a processor and controller of data. We are working with our suppliers and partner organisations to ensure they can also meet these obligations. As we work towards best practice and compliance, and our efforts are concentrated in these key areas:
Training & Awareness: we will undertake training across the company on the GDPR and its impact on the new policies, procedures, and responsibilities of staff & stakeholders.
Supplier & Partner relationships: where relevant and related, we will be using all reasonable endeavours to ensure that our third party and suppliers are complying with the GDPR.
Technology: we will be reviewing our technology platforms to analyse their operation, security, compliance to ensure that they meet the standards we have laid down and identify any gaps and risks.
Robson Kay is totally committed to GDPR compliance.

Anti – Slavery Policy
This policy applies to all persons working for Robson Kay Associates Limited or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, agents, contractors and suppliers.
Robson Kay strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in all our operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Robson Kay is a company that expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties. Using our risk-based approach we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our policy, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
Consistent with our risk-based approach we may require:
Employment and recruitment agencies and other third parties supplying workers to our organisation to confirm their compliance with our policy
Suppliers engaging workers through a third party to obtain that third parties’ agreement to adhere to the policy
As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with this policy.
If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This may range from considering the possibility of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.
