  1. Tailor our online services to you so the content you see is relevant to you. For example, we may request your date of birth, gender and some basic interests (such as ‘shopping’ and ‘dining’) so that we can provide you with content that we think you will be interested in – “profiling”; and

For the gift card, events, car parking, hiring services, Wifi-Service and competitions and promotions, the legal basis is also to form a contract with you to provide these services and promotions. 

Data minimisation and retention

We will only collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary, and will only keep your information for as long as you remain engaged with our marketing campaigns. Where you have not engaged with our marketing material for over a year, we will take steps to remove your information from our marketing database. Where you unsubscribe from our marketing, we will add your email address to our suppression list and delete any additional information that we hold about you.

Where you have provided your details in relation to a competition, we will delete your personal data when the competition has finished (unless you have consented to your information being used for marketing purposes). 

For any contractual purpose, your personal data will be held for as long as is required to deliver the services requested.

3. Security

How do we collect information from you?

As part of our security operation, we will also be collecting personal images relating to visitors and customers to its properties from CCTV, Body Mounted Video and ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) systems. 

We use third party service partners to provide security services, but the information recorded through these technologies is held on systems we control. The data we collect may be shared with the police for the prevention and detection of crime, or between our other sites to share intelligence. ANPR data can be shared with third parties for the purposes of enforcement. 

We also capture personal data within Access Control systems which may provide access to the building in our London Commercial properties. Personal data is also collected from visitors to our properties. Access control data is held within our systems and the visitor management data may be held on third party systems. 

In relation to access control and visitor data, where the data relates to our employees, contractors or visitors, we consider ourselves to be the Controller. However, personal data relating to our occupier’s staff, contractors and employees, we consider our occupiers to be the Data Controller. 

In relation to third parties, we ensure that they will also safeguard your data – please see Protection of Your Information below.

For what purpose is it collected?

CCTV, BMV, Visitor and Access control data is collated to pursue our legitimate interests to protect the property in question, to protect the vital interests of our visitors, tenants and customers,to assist with the prevention and detection of crime and to provide our contracted service to our tenants. 

ANPR is collected to fulfill a contract between ourselves and our users of our parking facilities, including enforcement action. 

Access control data is also processed because of our contractual responsibilities to our occupiers.

How do we collect information from you?

When an incident occurs at one of our properties, we are required to document the particulars of an incident which may include witness statements, CCTV footage, photographs and written reports. This information may include special categories of data depending on the nature of the incident. A third-party system is used to log details relating to these incidents and physical paperwork may also be stored on site. 

The data may be shared with third parties such as insurance providers and legal advisors in order to defend a claim, government or other competent organisations who are required to report on incidents by law or the police to investigate a crime. 

For what purpose is it collected?

This information is collected to ensure that we comply with our legal responsibilities in relation to Health and Safety investigation and reporting, and also in relation to any future legal claims. The information can also be used to prevent and detect crime, or to protect the vital interests of individuals. Where health information is collected we may also need this for our substantial public interest for Insurance processing. 

Data minimisation and retention

All personal data (CCTV, Witness Statements, Photographs and written reports) relating to the incident is held for six years, unless there are reasons to retain it for longer, such as an ongoing HSE investigation, a suspected pattern of fraud, or because an injury has been sustained by a child.

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 dataprotection@landsec.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.
