Your Legal Rights
The law gives you a number of rights to control what personal information is used by us and how it is used by us. You have the right to ask for the information we have about you. When we receive a request from you in writing, we must give you access to what personal information we’ve recorded about you.
However, we can’t let you see any parts of a record which contain:
- Confidential information about other people; or
- May be held in preparation to defend legal claims
This applies to personal information that is in both paper and electronic records. If you ask us, we’ll also let others see your record (except if one of the points above applies).
A request for personal information can be made via email to email@example.com. This is known as a subject access request. In order to make a subject access request you will need to provide the following information:
- your name
- your address
- proof of identity and signature
- enough information to identify your records
What Types of Documents Could I Submit as Proof of ID?
- Copy passport with signature (please remove your passport number)
- Copy driving license picture with signature (please remove your driver number)
- Copy of signed tenancy or contract with us
We will not start your subject access request until we are satisfied that you have provided us with enough information for us to identify you. Once you have made a request you will receive an acknowledgement and your request should be answered within 30 days. You can ask to change information you think is inaccurate. You should let us know if you disagree with something we may have recorded about you. We may not always be able to change or remove that information, but we’ll correct factual inaccuracies and may include your comments in the record to show that you disagree with it.
Our Lawful Basis
Should you be a leaseholder or own a dwelling on a development that we manage, our basis for processing your data is contractual. If you are a tenant or other third party, we process your data as a legitimate interest.
