What is Personal Information?

Personal Information is any information which identifies you as an individual, such as your name, email address, phone number, date of birth and photo.

The information that we collect

To operate effectively and to fulfil our legal obligations ASR needs to collect, retain and use certain personal information. This personal information may be held by the Company on paper or in electronic format. We may obtain this directly from you if you complete contact forms or ‘view a property’ forms, sign up for our email newsletter, or complete any other form on our website. We may collect it from you by telephone or in person if you register with us as a potential seller, buyer, landlord or tenant. Depending on the circumstances, we may also collect information about you from other sources such as public records or bodies e.g the Land Registry, or from private bodies such as tenant referencing agencies and/or anti money-laundering check providers.

How we use Personal Information about you

Under the GDPR we must always have a lawful basis for using personal information. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you; because you have consented to our use of your personal information; because we have a legal obligation to obtain it or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Personal information which you supply to us may be used for a number of reasons , for example for the purpose of dealing with your requests for information; because of work we have undertaken or are currently engaged in on your behalf; for fraud prevention; for audit and debt collection; for promoting our business or for statistical analysis.

Please note that we may process your personal information without your consent, in compliance with these rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Protecting your personal information

ASR has put in place measures to protect the security of your personal information. It has internal policies, procedures and controls in place to try to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost or destroyed, altered, disclosed or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, workers, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know in order to perform their job duties and responsibilities. You can obtain further information about these measures from our data compliance manager.

We do not sell rent or deal in personal information and will only pass on your details to a third party where you have requested that we do, where necessary in connection with one of the services offered, to help to prevent fraud or, if required so to do by law. We may share your information with, and obtain information about you from, credit reference agencies or fraud protection agencies, tenant referencing and/or anti money laundering agencies.

Marketing

We have a legitimate business interest in promoting our services to you by sending you material we believe may be of interest to you and information about our own services, by post, telephone, email and SMS. You have a right to opt out at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for these purposes, please Click Here or contact us at the email or postal addresses below.

Retaining Personal Information

We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reasons for which it was originally collected, except where required by law or following completion of a contract with you when it may be retained for up to seven years.

How and where Personal Information is stored

All personal information, in whatever format, will only be stored in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states plus Norway, Iceland and Lichenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.

Access to your information and correction

You have the right to know what personal information we have about you and to ask for details of that personal information and for a copy of it (where any such is held). This is known as a “subject access request”. All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal address shown below. There is normally no charge for a subject access request and we will respond as quickly as possible.

You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.

Changes to our privacy policy

We keep our privacy policy under regular review. We may update it from time to time to keep it up to date to keep pace with new developments and to stay in line with applicable law. We will place any updates on this web page so that you may be aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times.
