We are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal information about you. We are now required under legislation to notify you of the information contained in this Privacy Notice.

Data Protection Principles

We will comply with data protection law. This states that the personal information we hold about you must be:-

1. Used lawfully, firstly and in a transparent way

2. Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes

3. Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes

4. Accurate and kept up to date

5. Kept for as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about

6. Kept securely

The kind of information we hold about you

Personal data or personal information means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

There are “special categories” of more sensitive personal data which require a higher level of protection.

We will collect, store, and use the following categories of personal information about you:-

1. Personal details

2. Financial details (where these have been disclosed to us)

3. Business activities of the person whose details we are processing

How we will use information about you
We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances.

1. Where we need to perform the contract we have entered into with you i.e. the provision of professional property/surveying, land agency advice, house building/sales and in the agreement of sales and purchase of property

2. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation

3. Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests

We may also use your personal information in the following situations, which are likely to be very rare.

1. Where we need to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests)

2. Where it is needed in the public interest or for official purposes

Situations in which we will use your personal information

We need all the categories of information in the list above primarily to allow us to perform our contract with you and to enable us to comply with our legal professional obligations. In some cases we may use your personal information to pursue legitimate interests of our own or those of third parties, provided your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. Examples of the situations in which we will process your personal information are listed below:

1. Clarifying “proof of funding” details, where such matters are likely to be relevant to the company’s marketing/land/property disposals and/or other similar functions

2. Prevention and detection of fraud

3. Market research

4. Marketing

Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information.

Data sharing

We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers (see below).

We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

Why might you share my personal information with third parties?

We will share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary and reasonable to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

Who will you share my personal information with?

This may include:

1. Solicitors

2. Barristers

3. Accountants

4. Other Professional Experts

5. Courts and Tribunals

Where you authorise us, we may also disclose your information to your family, associates or representatives and we may also disclose your information to debt collection agencies if you do not pay our bills.

Data retention

How long will you use my information for?

We will keep your information throughout the period of time that we work for you and afterwards for a period of six years, as we are required to do so by law and, in many cases, for our own professional insurance purposes.

Rights of access, correction, erasure and restriction

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your Rights in Connection with Personal Information

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

1. Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

2. Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

3. Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information 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 information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

4. Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on 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. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

5. Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

6. Request for transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact Sue Heap, in the first instance, by email sheap@beckhomes.co.uk

Who can I complain to if I am unhappy about what you have done with my information?

If you have any query relating to the above, or are unhappy with how we are using your information then in the first instance, you should contact Sue Heap (sheap@beckhomes.co.uk) and if your complaint remains unresolved then you can contact the Managing Director Ben Wilkinson at the address above or the Information Commissioner’s Office, details available at www.ico.org.uk .
If you are a limited company or a commercial/business client, then the notice applies to the personal data of individuals in your organisation which we may acquire from time to time.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important information.
