About our Processing of Your Data

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you, which we have grouped as follows:

Identity Data includes first name, maiden name, last name, username or similar identifier, marital status, title, date of birth and gender.

Contact Data includes billing, delivery, email, and telephone numbers.

Financial Data includes bank account and payment card details.

Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you and other details of products and services you have purchased from us.

Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website.

Profile Data includes your username and password, purchases or orders made by you, your interests, preferences, feedback and survey responses.

Usage Data includes information about how you use our website, products and services.

Marketing and Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving marketing from our third parties and us and your communication preferences.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data, such as statistical or demographic data, for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, suppose we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your data so it can directly or indirectly identify you. In that case, we treat the combined data as personal data, which will be used following this privacy notice.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

What happens if I refuse to give Property Webb my data?

The information about you that we have collected for the performance of our contracts is required for us to fulfil our obligations to you successfully. If you choose not to provide the personal data requested, we will not be able to enter into a contract with you to deliver the benefits we offer. If we are already processing your personal information under a contract, you must end our contractual relationship (as/where permitted) in order to exercise some of your rights.

We process some personal information as part of a contractual relationship with a Data Controller. Therefore, any requests to restrict this processing should be forwarded to the Data Controller; they will be responsible for discussing your concerns and making any decisions.

What are Property Webb’s ‘legitimate interests?

Legitimate interests are a flexible basis upon which the law permits the processing of an individual’s data. To determine whether we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, we balance the needs and benefits to us against the risks and benefits for you of us processing your data. This balancing is performed as objectively as possible by our Data Protection Lead. Of course, you can object to our processing, and we shall consider how this affects whether we have a legitimate interest. If you want to find out more about our legitimate interests, please contact us via info@andrewf218.sg-host.com.

How Long Will Your Data be Kept?

Property Webb holds different categories of personal data for different periods. Wherever possible, we will endeavour to minimise the amount of personal data that we have.

  • If ‘consent’ is the basis for our lawful processing of your data, we will retain your data so long as the purpose for which it was collected and your consent, are still valid. We review your consent status every twelve (12) months and treat non-response to our requests for renewal of consent as if they were your request to withdraw consent. Occasionally, we might identify a legitimate interest in retaining some of your data obtained by consent. If we do, we will inform you that we intend to maintain it under these conditions and identify the interest specifically.
  • If we process your data based on ‘legitimate interests, we will retain your data for so long as the purpose for which it is processed remains active. We review the status of our legitimate interests every twelve (12) months. We will update this notice whenever we determine that either a legitimate interest no longer exists or that a new one has been found.
  • All categories of personal data held by us, because they are essential for the performance of a contract, will be held for six years, as determined by reference to the Limitations Act 1980, to exercise or defend legal claims.

Who can you Complain to?

In addition to sending your complaints to info@andrewf218.sg-host.com, you can send complaints to our supervisory authority. Property Webb predominantly handles the personal data of UK nationals, and our supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office. If you believe that we have failed in compliance with data protection legislation, this authority can be made by visiting https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.
