Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement demonstrates our firm commitment to privacy.

Who are we?

We are Focused Group Limited (“Focused”) of Mansion House, Manchester Road, Altrincham, WA14 4RW.

Focused is part of the same group of companies as PayStream Accounting Services Limited (“PAS”).  Whilst Focused is the entity which employs umbrella employees to work on temporary assignments for external third parties, PAS is the entity which employs internal staff to operate the running of the business and for making decisions as to the data we collect from Focused’s employees and how such data is processed.  As such, PAS is a Data Controller as defined by Article 4(7) of the UK GDPR.

On the instruction of PAS, we process data as outlined in the following privacy notice.

The information we collect – and the way in which we use it

We want you to know that we take your privacy seriously. Wherever you give us your personal Contact Information (your name, address, email, telephone and/or mobile phone number and any additional information) on this website, we will keep your details safe and only use them to notify you via email, post, SMS or phone call (unless opted out of at time of registration) with information about our products, special offers, company news, prize draws and any other information deemed appropriate. This is in our legitimate interests. We will never sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.

Even if you agreed to receive marketing communications from us at the time of registration, you may opt out at any time by emailing

Your Contact Information will be emailed to our Onboarding team and where appropriate, our Marketing Team. The Onboarding Team will use your Contact Information to get in touch with you about our services, contracts and/or Umbrella employment (as we believe appropriate in our reasonable opinion).

We may also disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

Your rights

You have a number of rights in respect of your personal information. You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please email

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. Please ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. We will only use your personal information as we have described in this Privacy Statement, but, in the unlikely event that we need to use it in a different way, we will provide you with an updated Privacy Statement.

Where we have based our processing on our legitimate interests, you do have the right to object to the processing or restrict us processing your information in this way. In this case, we will need to demonstrate to you that our legitimate interests are sufficiently compelling to override your interests or rights, or that purpose is to establish or defend legal claims.

You have the right to erasure, although this does not provide an absolute ‘right to be forgotten’ and applies only in these specific circumstances: where your personal information is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed, you withdraw consent, you object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing, we unlawfully processed your personal information and, where your personal information has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.

Where we have based our processing on the performance of a contract, you will have the right to receive this information from us in a structured, commonly used way and have the right to send this to someone else.

If you are unhappy with the way we use your personal information, you can make a complaint to us directly or to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). You can visit this website:

Changes to our Privacy Statement

We keep our Privacy Statement under regular review and should we change it, we will provide you with an updated copy. When we contact you in respect of our services, contracts or Umbrella employment, we will provide you with further privacy information.
