Who we share your data with

We only collect data from you if you complete and submit a Contact Form. This data is only visible to the website administrators in the first instance and is only shared with others within the organisation if needed to respond to your enquiry. We do not share your data with any outside organisations.

How long we retain your data

Once your enquiry has been processed the information relating to it will be kept for an appropriate amount of time in the event that a query arises or further contact with you might be needed. The length of retention depends on the enquiry type – for example, a question about availability at a property would be retained for longer if that question results in you choosing to make your new home with us.

What rights you have over your data

Under the terms of the GDPR you can always request to receive a list of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you (this does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes).

Embedded content from other websites

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
