1.1 Caliper is a Human Capital Management consulting firm whose principal offerings include personnel assessment services for corporate clients (“Clients”). These services entail the receiving and processing of personal data of our Clients’ assessment candidates (“Candidates”) or employees (“Employees”) for the provision of our assessment and consulting services. In addition to this, the website www.calipereurope.com (“Website”) also collects certain personal data from users.
1.2 Caliper’s business systems are designed to require that every Client or Candidate is made aware of Caliper’s data protection policies and freely provides their explicit consent to these policies before agreeing to provide any personal information to Caliper.

Where Caliper receives candidates’ personal data from a third party (such as data received from an actual or potential Client) Caliper will not be the data controller but will be the data processor of that information.
