  1. How we protect your data

    • We are committed to keeping your personal data safe and secure. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

 

[We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.]

 

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk.

 

  1. Duration of storage

 

  • We will not retain your data for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

 

  • To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

 

  • By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

 

  • If you ask us to stop contacting you for marketing purposes we will retain basic information about you (including information about who you are and your contact details) to ensure that we do not contact you again unless you change your mind.

 

  • In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Your Rights below for further information.

  1. Your rights

 

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You have a right to:

 

  • opt out of any marketing communications that we send you, even after initially consenting;

 

  • have your information treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Act;

 

  • request access to information held about you (known as a “data subject access request”). We will not charge a fee for this but please note we may still be able to recover costs from you where your request is vexatious or very repetitive in nature;

 

  • ask us (at no cost) to update and correct any personal information which is out of date or incorrect, although we may need to verify the accuracy of any new data you provide to us;

 

  • ask us to erase your personal data or restrict our processing of the data if you wish. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;

 

  • object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms

 

  • request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it;

 

  • withdraw consent at any time, where you have consented to our processing your data in a certain manner;

 

  • make a complaint directly with the Information Commissioner’s Office. In order to report a concern, you should follow the directions given on ico.org.uk which contains details about available methods of complaint;

 

  • receive from us a copy of the personal data in a commonly used, machine readable format and the right to store it for further personal use on a private device and to ask us to transmit the personal data to another entity where this is technically possible. This right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

 

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

 

We may also need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data or to exercise any of your other rights.

 

You can help ensure that your contact information and communication preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by contacting us at info@online-bedrooms.co.uk.
