The law relating to how your data is processed and stored (General Data Protection Regulations) is changing as of 25th May 2018. This privacy notice lets you know what will happen to any personal data which you give Walker Scott Ireland Ltd.
I. Property sales – clients and buyers
Valuation, consultancy and management clients
We hold your personal data on a contractual basis.
Personal details you have supplied to us may include photographic ID, your name, address telephone and E mail address.
Personal information which you have supplied to us will not be used for any further purpose other than keeping in contact with you.
Anti-Money Laundering Regulations stipulate that we must hold onto your information for a minimum of 5 years, however, as recommended by RICS we will hold onto all our files (and your contact details) for 10 years. We will remove your details from our files after this time period has elapsed or contact you to seek your consent to continue to hold your data.
II. Property sales – interested parties
The personal data we will process includes your name, address, telephone and E mail address, as given to us by you. We will hold this data until the property in which you are interested sells. During this time, we will use your data in the following ways:
• To make you aware of any other relevant property sales
• To keep you in touch with Walker Scott Ireland
We will only contact you by E mail unless this is not available, in which case we will contact you by telephone or by post.
When the property sells, we will make no further contact with you unless you have specifically requested to be notified of any other relevant property sales thereafter, however, as required under Anti Money Laundering Regulations, we will keep your details on file for 5 years.
Where no contract exists, and money laundering regulations do not apply, the new law stipulates that we must ask you to confirm whether you would like us to keep in touch. We rely on the legal basis of consent to process your data.
III. Individual contacts
We will hold your details including your name, address, telephone numbers and e-mail address. We may contact you using any of these details but only in relation to your business purpose. As previously requested, you have given us your details to hold in our files in order to keep in touch with you.
We will never share your information with a third party.
We will review our files annually and remove personal information we do not consider necessary for business purposes.
Where we rely on your consent to hold your personal data, you have the right to withdraw consent to hold your details at any time by contacting us on the e mail supplied below.
All information is held on a secure server.
For further information on how your information is used, how we maintain the security of your information, and your rights to access information we hold on you, please contact:
