We may sometimes contract with third parties to supply services to you on our behalf. These include outsourcing our compliance, due diligence and referencing checks under certain circumstances to third party service providers.
These may also include promoting our business, brands and products and measuring the reach and effectiveness of our campaigns – this will include:
- Sending you marketing information from time to time after you have engaged us to provide services or received services from us, either which may be similar and of interest to you, or where you have expressly indicated that you would like to receive such information. You have the right to opt out of receiving this information at any time.
- Processing that is necessary to improve our knowledge of the real estate sector – this will include undertaking market analysis and research so that we better understand trends in the property sector and provide better knowledge along with more tailored and relevant services for our customers in the future.
- Processing is necessary for us to operate the administrative and technical aspects of our business efficiently and effectively – this will include: verifying the accuracy of information that we hold about you and creating a better understanding of you as a customer; processing for administrative efficiency purposes such as where we outsource certain administrative functions to third parties who are specialists in such services; processing for network and information security purposes.
In some cases, the third parties may require access to some or all of your data. Where any of your data is required for such a purpose, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data will be handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the obligations of the third party under the law.

Where we transfer any personal data outside the UK, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the UK GDPR. Reasonable steps to include one of the following –
- Ensure that the territory we are transferring it to has an adequacy decision from the Secretary of State. This means that the country has data protection laws equivalent to those in the UK; or
- Ensure that we have the appropriate ‘standard contractual clauses’ in place with the receiver of the data. This means that the receiver must use and protect the data in a manner that is equivalent to UK data protection laws.
In certain circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain data held by us, which may include your personal data, for example, where we are involved in legal proceedings, where we are complying with legal requirements, a court order, or a governmental authority.
10. How long do we keep your personal data for?
We do not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected and to fulfil any obligations that we may have under the law. Data will therefore be retained for the following periods (or its retention will be determined on the following bases):

Any personal data that you have provided will, where it is relevant to any part of our business that is being transferred, be transferred along with that part and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Notice, be permitted to use that data only for the same purposes for which it was originally collected by us.
