Recipients of personal data

It will be necessary for us to process or share all or some of your personal data withour website host and advertisers.

Retention period and criteria used to determine the retention period

We will retain some elements of your personal data for varying periods of time depending on the services that we provide you, prospective tenants for up to three months; prospective purchasers for up to six months; landlords, tenants, vendors and purchasers for as long as is required to fulfil our legal and contractual obligations or legitimate interests. The information that can be anonymized will be that which is no longer required for either contractual fulfilment or a legitimate interest. If the lawful basis for processing your data was consent then you may withdraw such consent at any time.

Your rights

You have a right of access to check your personal data to verify the lawful basis of processing. We are obliged to respond to an access request within 30 days and may not charge a fee unless the request is unfounded, excessive or repetitive. If a fee is charged it is to be a reasonable fee based upon the administrative cost of providing the information. You have a right to rectification if the data we hold is either inaccurate or incomplete. If your data has been disclosed to third parties then we must inform them of the rectification, where possible.

You have a right to require erasure of your data when consent is our basis of processing (the right to be forgotten). You may request that your personal data be erased, for example, where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing or where you withdraw consent. We will comply with your request unless we have another basis of processing justifying our retaining the data (for example a legal requirement or the defence of a legal claim).

You have some rights to ask us to restrict processing i.e. to block or supress processing where, for example, the data may be incorrect and whilst the accuracy is verified. We are permitted to store the data.

Your right to object

"I have worked with Halletts over a number years, initially renting a flat in Kew and then purchasing, and selling properties, as well as renting my own flats. They have always provided an excellent service. One of the areas they stand out for me is their knowledge of Kew and the history of properties in the area. They are the longest standing agency in Kew and the market expertise they have really helps with making first-rate purchase and renting decisions. They have a keen knowledge of prices and are always available for advice, which is always well thought through. I would recommend them as an excellent agent to deal with."
