We are a private landlord and this notice is provided to you regarding the data we hold about you as a tenant or alternatively as an occupier in our rented property.
As your landlord, we are a Data Controller as we hold various information about you and information relating to your tenancy or with us or occupation of our property.
This has been provided by you when completing our application forms as part of the tenancy application process. We may also hold additional information which has been provided by you or by third parties to us at a later stage in connection with your tenancy or occupation of our property.
The information we hold about you, whether you be a tenant, or household member, may include (but will not be limited to) all or part of the following:
Your name, e-mail address, telephone number, Date of Birth, address (including any previous addresses), marital status, National Insurance Number, nationality, next of kin, name of university or college where you are studying (if applicable), the name of friends that you are staying with (if applicable);
The property you are (or will be) renting from us (or are occupying); along with the term, rent, deposit, utility and service responsibilities;
Your employment status and the address, contact details (including email, phone and fax numbers) of your employer/accountant, payroll numbers, length of employment, salary information (including any regular overtime or commission), and any other income received;
Your bank account details, including the account number and sort code, any bank statements you have provided to us, any hire purchase/loan agreements/credit cards or store cards that you have; and any welfare benefits that you may be eligible for, or are currently in receipt of.
We will not normally hold information about children living at the property other than their name and date of birth. We require this information so we can show it to the Home Office if required under the Right to Rent regulations in order to prove to them that it was not necessary to carry out a Right to Rent check on the child, and also to show to the Local or any other Authority if we are required to provide them with information about the occupiers of the property.
We need to hold your data for the following purposes:
Your information may be shared in the following circumstances
Your data is held at the following secure locations
A password-protected computer system.
Your data will be mainly held within the UK. If we use a cloud storage service or if one of the services or third party contractors used by us stores data in a cloud server, outside of the UK, this will only be in circumstances where safeguards have been put in place for its protection, in compliance with the Data Protection legislation in the UK.
We are entitled to retain your data for up to 12 years (where your tenancy has been signed as a deed) or otherwise up to seven years after the end of your tenancy. This is in case of legal issues arising or in case we are required to provide information to HMRC or for some other official reason.
After this period of time has ended you will be entitled to ask us to delete your data from our systems and from any data processors we have have used to store your data.
Further, if after first making a complaint to us, you consider that we have not dealt with your data correctly, note that you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office at www.ico.org.
This information notice may be updated from time to time to reflect any changes we may make in how we use your data or any changes in Data Protection law or practice.
We, the tenant, confirm receipt of this Information Notice.
