What is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

What Data Do We Collect?

Depending upon your use of Our Site and your relationship with PPRE,(ie you are a client or someone looking to acquire,let or sell or purchase property) we may collect some or all of the following personal and non-personal data:

• IP address;

• Web browser type and version;

• Operating system;

We may collect your personal data directly from you, (including information given during interactions or correspondence), as well as from other parties. This includes personal data from someone applying to acquire a premises via PPRE or their joint agent/s or if you are a client of PPRE, as well as from third parties such as credit reference agencies, financial advisors, solicitors and others agents or introducers.

If you are a client of PPRE or looking to acquire or dispose of premises we may also collect financial data and personal identity data such as passport details and home addresses to comply with Money laundering or other legislation. This is also to comply with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Professional Indemnity Policies, as PPRE is a RICS Regulated entity, which also requires PPRE to keep this data for a number of years (more specific details can be provided upon request).

How Do We Use Your Personal Data?

Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. 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 data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data will be used for one or more of the following purposes:

• Providing and managing your business instruction/Account with PPRE;

• Supplying you with information by email  AND/OR post that you have opted-in to. You can opt out from receiving brochures or alerts to availability of existing or newly listed premises at any time by advising us accordingly.

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email  AND/OR telephone  AND/OR post with information, news, and offers on our products  AND/OR services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.

How Long Will We Keep Your Personal Data?

We will 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 comply with any legislation, property industry, RICS requirements or professional indemnity reasons.

How and Where Do We Store or Transfer Your Personal Data?

We will only normally store or transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law. However on occasions we will be acting for property owners/clients who are based outside this area and thus on those occasions your data maybe shared with that specific client and potentially their professional advisors or bank should you be acquiring property (or we are acquiring property for you) from that person/entity.

Do We Share Your Personal Data?

We will only share your personal data with third parties in the normal business process of letting/selling and acquiring property or for other property related business we maybe instructed upon. Thus it maybe shared with clients, their solicitors and other professional advisors or a joint agent where one exists for the purposes of reporting interest in their property or leasing or selling the premises, or other appropriate related business activity upon which PPRE maybe undertaking for a client, or were a property that our clients maybe interested in acquiring premises.

In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
