We do not actively collect sensitive information. We may from time to time hold sensitive information about job applicants. We will not disclose this sensitive information to anyone else. We may also hold some sensitive information from time to time about prospective tenants. This material may be used to consider a tenancy application to the extent that it is not unlawful to do so.
We may need to disclose personal details to various people to carry out the services that we are engaged to provide. For example we may need to give details about a tenant to a contractor to arrange repair of premises. We may also pass on personal information to a property insurer or a landlord’s insurer to process a claim on behalf of the owner of a property.
We may disclose personal information from time to time to other agents to introduce vendors to purchasers or landlords to tenants. We will seek your consent before passing on your personal information in this way.
We take active steps to protect the security of personal information.
We expect our staff to comply with certain standards of behaviour when dealing with personal information. We train all our staff about the need to protect your privacy and we will regard any breaches as serious matters.
Some of our records are paper based. These records are kept on secure premises away from the general public. We also keep some information in an electronic form. Records kept electronically are within a secure computer system which contains features such as password access and the latest virus protection.
We may keep personal information for at least 7 years after the completion of a transaction for legal reasons. After that time we will de-identify or destroy the personal information.
We try to ensure that any personal information that we hold is accurate complete and up to date. We do this by collecting information from you directly or from reliable sources including publicly accessible databases. If we become aware that the information on our records is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date we will correct that information or if necessary delete it from our records.
