We will not disclose your personal data to any other third parties without your specific consent unless we are required to do so by law.
We do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) unless in providing the service for which you registered. Potential tenants could be resident in any country and looking to relocate to the UK. In these circumstances and in providing our service to you, your data may be sent to such individuals.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees or agents who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

More specifically we will endeavour to remove your data under the following terms and where these times have elapsed: (These should be read in conjunction with our Terms)
Data pertaining to All accounts will be held for as long as there are Active Adverts or Full Access on Tenant Accounts.
Data will be held until Expiry of these Adverts or Full Access accounts plus a period of 12 months (‘the Period’) (after 25 May 2018). Where an Advert or Full Access is renewed or extended, this period will extend accordingly and automatically. This means the earliest we will delete accounts and data based on these terms will be from 25 May 2019.
At the end of the Period, and if no further Adverts or Full Access are purchased, an Account will be Deleted along with all data relating to that Account.
Where an Account is created, be it Landlord or Tenant, and no Advert added (Landlord) or Search Preferences completed (Tenant) these accounts will be deleted six months after Registration. Email notifications for such accounts will be sent, informing Users of the need to create an Advert (Landlord) or complete Search Preferences (Tenant) at intervals up to this 6 month deadline.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to:
1) Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
2) Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. You may update your personal data by logging in to your account.
3) Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. You may delete any data we hold by logging in to your account.
4) Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
5) Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
6) Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
7) Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
All credit information is handled by a third party payment processor such as Sagepay or PayPal, we do not collect or hold any payment card details on our servers. These third party processors have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these providers.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by Contacting us
