We may also share your information with the following third parties:

  • Business partners, affiliates, suppliers and subcontractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you

  • Analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our website and marketing efforts

We will disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets

  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction

  • As part of our Anti-Money Laundering Policy we will usually undertake electronic verification of your proof of identity documentation via SmartSearch, who hold a bank of data linked to Experian. Any checks made in this way do not affect your credit rating. We will never provide any third parties with your proof of identity documentation.

We will not share your personal information with any other third parties without your consent, other than as confirmed in this Privacy Policy/Notice.

Transfer of your information outside the European Union (EU) / European Economic Area (EEA)

We are not aware of any reason where it may be necessary to transfer your personal information outside the EU/EEA or to an international organisation. Should a request for such information be sent to us by a law enforcement agency we would only ever do so at the insistence of the UK’s National Crime Agency.

Where we store your personal information

The data that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored at, a destination within the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

Data will be stored on our property software system and internal server.  We may retain paper copies of agreements, applications and referencing which will be stored in our property in a locked storage system.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will implement measures to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; consequently, please note that we do not accept any responsibility for any risks in transmission of data (to the extent that such liability can be lawfully excluded). Once we have received your information, we will use procedures and security features to seek to prevent unauthorised access.

Retention

We will retain your personal data for different periods of time depending on the service you have chosen to use us for, and which may be for a longer period than that for which we need to hold your data to provide those services, i.e. where we are under a regulatory or statutory duty to hold your data for a longer period or need to retain it in the event of a legal claim or complaint.

Your rights

You have the right to opt-in to marketing and to subsequently ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can opt-in to marketing by checking certain boxes on appropriate contact forms which we use to collect your data. You can exercise the right to subsequently opt-out of marketing at any time by informing us of this by contacting us at info@prospertygroup.co.uk.

Our website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to those third party websites.

You have a right of access to check your personal data to verify the lawful basis of processing. We are obliged to respond to an access request within 30 days and may not charge a fee unless the request is unfounded, excessive or repetitive. If a fee is charged it is to be a reasonable fee based upon the administrative cost of providing the information. You have a right to rectification if the data we hold is either inaccurate or incomplete. If your data has been disclosed to third parties then we must inform them of the rectification, where possible. You have a right to erase your data when consent is our basis of processing (the right to be forgotten). You may request that your personal data be erased, for example, where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing or where you withdraw consent. We will comply with your request unless we have another basis of processing justifying our retaining the data (for example a legal requirement or the defence of a legal claim). You have some rights to ask us to restrict processing i.e. to block or suppress processing where, for example, the data may be incorrect and whilst the accuracy is verified. We are permitted to store the data. 

You do have a right to object to further processing of your personal data. We may be required to stop processing unless there is some other legitimate basis of processing such as a legitimate interest or a requirement for the exercise or defence of a legal claim.

We will only ever keep your data for as long as is necessary and information therein will be stored for the term of any agreement and for six years after the end of a tenancy/agreement. All paper data is destroyed safely and ethically.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have a number of important rights that you can exercise free of charge. In summary, these rights are:

Transparency over how we use your personal data and fair processing of your information;

  • Access to your personal information and other supplementary information;

  • Require us to correct any mistakes or complete missing information we hold on you;

  • Require us to erase your personal information in certain circumstances;

  • Receive a copy of the personal information you have provided to us or have this information be sent to a third party, this will be provided to you or the third party in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format;

  • Object at any time to processing of your personal information for direct marketing;

  • Object in certain other situations to the continued processing of your personal information;

  • Restrict our processing of your personal information in certain circumstances;

If you want more information about your rights under the GDPR please see the Guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/)

If you want to exercise any of these rights, please:
  • Email, phone or write to our Data Protection Officer 

  • Please be prepared to provide additional information so that we can identify you, and we are very likely to contact you to request further information to verify your identity. For security reasons we must be sure it is you who are requesting the right or rights that you wish to exercise.

We will respond to you within one month from when we receive your request. Please note if you wish to unsubscribe from any email you can do so by clicking the link to unsubscribe in the email footer or on our web site home page or by contacting us (see ‘Get in touch’ below). It may take up to 5 working days for this to become effective.

How to make a complaint

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) this will be in the country/state where you work, normally live or where the alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The UK supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office who can be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/

Automated decision making

We do not use Automated Decision Making in the course of our business.

Our security

The security of information is very important to us and we have measures in place which are designed to prevent unauthorised access to your personal information. These include, but are not limited to:

Electronic data files are stored in two ways – the first being on a UK “cloud” based secure client management system and the second being stored on a secure server in South Wales. Hard copy files are kept to a minimum and are stored in locked cabinets before being securely destroyed.

Future processing

We do not intend to process your personal information for any reason other than stated within this privacy notice. If this changes, we will inform you by email.

Changes to this privacy notice

Any changes which we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by email. We encourage you to periodically review this policy for the latest information on our privacy practices.
