Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement explains what personal information we may collect about you in connection with our services engagement and how this personal information may be used and shared. This Privacy Statement also sets out your rights in relation to your personal information and tells you who you can contact if you have questions.

To whom does this Privacy Statement apply and what does it cover?

This Privacy Statement applies to J. Wesley & Company LLP (also referred to as “J. Wesley & Company”, “we”, “us”, and “our”).

This Privacy Statement sets out how we will process your personal information as part of our provision of tax, social security and (in certain jurisdictions outside of the United States) immigration related services as may be relevant to you. J. Wesley & Company is providing these services either under a direct contract with you or via a contract with another person (such as a company or a partnership or a trustee) who has asked us to provide the services.

Your personal information will be protected and handled with consideration for its confidentiality and J. Wesley & Company will only disclose it as set out in the “To whom will we disclose your personal information?” section below.

In this Privacy Statement, we refer to handling, collecting, protecting and storing your personal information as "processing".

What personal information do we collect?

J. Wesley & Company may collect personal information relating to you such as:

  • name
  • contact details (such as work or home address, email and phone numbers)
  • date of birth
  • government identifiers (such as social security number and passport details)
  • financial information
  • calendar data (where applicable)

In order to provide services to you, J. Wesley & Company may receive and also need to process personal information about you that may be considered special category (or “sensitive”) personal information (special category personal information is considered to include information about your health, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data or sexual orientation). Special category personal information about you includes information that may be reasonably inferred from other information that we receive.

Where we receive special category personal information or other information from which special category personal information can be reasonably inferred, we will require explicit consent in order to process it.

How do we collect personal information?

J. Wesley & Company may collect personal information about you in different ways:

  • you may provide it directly to us
  • we may obtain it because of the services that J. Wesley & Company provides or has previously provided
  • we may receive it from other members of the Deloitte Network or from third parties, such as your employer/partnership, or a tax authority and/or other relevant authority/administrative bodies
  • we may observe or infer it from the information you provide to us and/or the way you interact with us

This personal information can be received in any manner, including in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications.

Without access to all the personal information that we need, we may be unable to provide or complete the services. 

Where another party (such as a company or a partnership or any third parties acting on your or their behalf) provides your personal information to us, they must also comply with their obligations under the relevant privacy laws and regulations. If you believe that the entity for whom you work or a third party has not provided you with details of the personal information that it holds about you and/or has not obtained your authority to provide us with that personal information for processing as described in this Privacy Statement, then please contact such entity directly.

Disclosing personal information to us relating to third parties

If any personal information which you provide to us relates to any third party, for example a spouse or civil partner, individuals (including children) who depend on you financially, or a joint account holder or a beneficiary or trustee of a trust, then by providing us with their personal information you will need to ensure that you have obtained any necessary permissions from those persons to the use of their personal information in the way set out in this Privacy Statement, or you are otherwise permitted to give us this personal information. You should share a copy of this Privacy Statement with those other individuals before disclosing any personal information about them to us.

  • establish or maintain our relationship with you

On what basis do we process personal information about you?

This Privacy Statement sets out the grounds upon which we rely in order to process your personal information.

  • competent authorities, including courts and authorities regulating us or another member of the Deloitte Network, in each case to comply with legal, regulatory or professional obligations or requests
  • vendors and administrative, support, infrastructure and other service providers handling your information on our behalf; in each case, such vendors and service providers will be contractually bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations consistent with the obligations in this Privacy Statement
  • third parties to whom we disclose information in the course of providing services to you or to the entity that has engaged us to provide the services

Any personal information that we have referenced above under “What personal information do we collect?” may be disclosed to the third parties identified in this section for the purposes set forth herein.

To do so, we may ask you to provide us with your full name, contact information, and relationship to J. Wesley & Company. Depending on your request, we may ask you to provide additional information.
