Personal information collected
When you visit, register or use the services on this Site, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself, including your name and your contact details. We may also collect information about your use of this Site as well as information about you from the emails sent to you. Finally, we may collect information about your property and the type of property you wish to purchase.
Information collection and use
Your information will enable us to provide you with access to all parts of this Site and to supply the services and features that you have requested. We may aggregate the information to identify patterns which we can use in our marketing and to help us develop, administer, support and improve our services and features.
In particular, we may use your information to contact you for your views on our services and to notify you occasionally about important changes or developments to this Site or our services. Further, where you have consented, we might also use your information to email you with details about any other products or services which we offer which may be of interest to you.
The following features, by their nature, require and make use of personally identifiable information:
The information that you complete on the 'contact agent' forms on this Site is recorded by us and is sent to the agent that you wish to contact. This helps them provide you with a more personalised service. We may also send the agent details of your last search to help them find property that matches your requirements more closely.
Email a Friend
When you use the 'email a friend' feature of this Site we record which properties you have sent to the friend solely so that we can track the popularity of those properties. We record the other details provided in the email for internal monitoring of the service. We will NOT add any information collected in this manner to our mailing lists to protect you and the recipient's privacy.
Registering with us for Property Email Alerts Service
If you register with us and use the 'Property Email Alerts' feature to receive notification when new properties matching your criteria are added to this Site, we record the settings you use and which properties have been sent to you. We do not make any information about any property that has been sent to you available to our member agents or third parties. If you are signed in when you send an email to an estate agent, we may use your settings to help the estate agent to provide more personalised services to you.
Who has access to the information you provide or we collect
We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you.
When our service is available via the websites of our partners, those partners may have access to your information. Their use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policies.
