As part of the new GDPR Rules (General Data Protection Regulations) we are required to hold your personal information in a certain way with regards to processing of the data you provide us. The law allows you greater control of your data and more importantly who has it and how it is used. Data includes IP addresses along with usual forms of data such as names, addresses and dates of birth. Every effort is made to ensure your data is kept secured and only shared with third parties with whom we will be working as part of your transaction. Such third parties include Estate Agents, Banks, Legal Indemnity Providers and IT Providers.
All files, electronic files and physical files are held with us for as long as required after completion. However after six years we do have the option of destroying these. All data held on our systems and files which are available to our employees and associates is used only within guidelines set out by our firm which includes destroying any sensitive information which is not required for the file by way of shredding or other means to achieve the desired outcome. We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. Please note you have a right to request information and data we hold on you at any time. In accepting these terms and conditions you are giving consent for us to use the data we collect on you as required to facilitate your transaction.
