This Privacy Notice may vary from time to time so please check it regularly. This privacy notice was last updated on 11 September 2018.
This Notice describes the types of information collected, how that information is used and disclosed, and how you can access, modify, or delete your information.
Land Securities Properties Limited (company number 961477) whose registered office is at 100 Victoria Street London SW1E 5JL (“we”, “us” or “our”) is the ‘data controller’ for the personal data we collect. We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office with registration number Z5806812.
1. How do we collect information about you?
We collect business contact information from you during the course of our business interactions with you. You may be or have been a tenant at one of our properties, or have expressed an interest in becoming a tenant. We may also have collected your information from forms on our website, where you have expressed an interest in receiving updates on our Company’s performance.
Landsec uses Microsoft Office 365 cloud technology for its operations. Its data centres are located within the EU, which is considered adequate for personal data transfers by the UK.
2. For what purpose is it collected
The information is gathered in pursuit of our legitimate interests to provide you with information about property services that we can provide you; to better understand our customers; and to obtain customer feedback so that we can improve our service offerings.
3. Data minimisation and retention
We will only collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary. We will offer you the opportunity to unsubscribe from our marketing lists if you no longer wish to receive the information.
4. Protection of your information
We have in place administrative, technical and physical measures designed to guard against and minimise the risk of loss, misuse or unauthorised processing or disclosure of the personal information that we hold. We place similar obligations on our third parties and risk assess their security based on the sensitivity of the personal data that they hold.
If we transfer your personal information outside of the UK, it will continue to be subject to one or more appropriate safeguards set out in the law. These might be the use of model contracts in a form approved by regulators, or having our suppliers sign up to an independent privacy scheme approved by regulators.
5. Your rights
You have the right to opt out of receiving any marketing information which we send you.
Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.
Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the following rights:
- Subject to certain conditions, request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. If possible, you should specify the type of information you would like to see to ensure that our disclosure is meeting your expectations. Disclosure should not impact the rights and freedoms of other people, e.g. privacy and confidentiality rights of other staff.
- Subject to certain conditions, request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected. You also have a responsibility to help us to keep your personal information accurate and up to date. We encourage you to notify us of any changes regarding your personal data as soon as they occur, including changes to your contact details. This right only applies to your own personal data. When exercising this right, please be as specific as possible.
- Subject to certain conditions, request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. We may not be in a position to erase your personal data, if for example, we need it to (i) comply with a legal obligation, or (ii) exercise or defend legal claims. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Subject to certain conditions, object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
- Subject to certain conditions, request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Subject to certain conditions, request the transfer of your personal information to another party. If you exercise this right, you should specify the type of information you would like to receive (and where we should send it) where possible to ensure that our disclosure is meeting your expectations. This right only applies if the processing is based on your consent or on our contract with you and when the processing is carried out by automated means (i.e. not for paper records). It covers only the personal data that has been provided to us by you.
- Where our processing of your personal data is based on your consent you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you do decide to withdraw your consent we will stop processing your data for that purpose, unless there is another lawful basis we can rely on – in which case, we will let you know. If you withdraw your consent, this will only take effect for future processing.
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please email email@example.com.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights); however, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office via https://ico.org.uk/ for information, advice or to make a complaint.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
For more information, please contact the data protection officer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Other third-party transfers not detailed previously
We may pass on or allow access to your information:
- Other Service Providers: we may share information we collect about you with third parties who provide services on our behalf to help with our business activities, such as third parties providing valuation services for our portfolio;
- to our Joint Venture partners or other companies in our group;
- to any purchaser of all or part of our business or any of our properties;
- to sell, make ready for sale or dispose of our business in whole or in part including to any potential buyer or their advisers;
- where we are required to do so by law, court order or other legal process;
- where, acting in good faith, we believe disclosure is necessary to assist in the investigation or reporting of suspected illegal or other wrongful activity. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction; and
- to protect and defend our rights or property.
