What information do we collect about you?
Much of the information we collect is available in the public domain and/or is about an asset (land, property etc) rather than personal information.
Where we do collect personal information, the information can typically be classified as:
- identification data, including your name, title, date of birth, national insurance number;
- contact information, including your address (and previous address if relevant), your telephone number and email address;
- documentary information – including Passports, Driving Licences and any other documentary evidence we request to verify your identity, residency and source of any deposit, including Bank Statements.
We’ll only collect the personal data that we need.
We collect information about you when you register your interest in our networking events, contact us via phone, email or place an order for products or services. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete customer surveys, provide feedback and use offers. Website usage information is collected using cookies so we are able to provide users with a better experience.
What is our lawful basis for processing your information?
Our lawful basis for processing a request you make for a product or service is usually “contract” i.e. we are processing your data because you have asked us to do something before you enter into a contract.
For some of the data we process, we also have a “legitimate interest” and / or a “legal obligation”. For example we have both a “legitimate interest” and a “legal obligation” to process information to prevent financial crime. There will also be occasions where we rely on your “consent” to process your data, for example we would not undertake a credit search on you without your consent.
Where you have made an enquiry with us we also have a “legitimate interest” to keep you informed about relevant products and services that may be of interest to you. You can however prevent us from sending you marketing information at any time – see How to restrict our processing for marketing purposes below.
How will we use the information about you?
We collect information about you to process your order, manage your account and, unless you tell us not to, to email you about other products and services we think may be of interest to you. We will only process your personal data for legitimate purposes as set by the General Data Protection Regulations.
Walker Doble Ltd will not share your information for marketing purposes with other companies, we will only share your details with organisations when necessary in order to fulfil our service to you and where the privacy and security of your data is assured.
Information we share regarding a potential transaction will often be on an anonymised basis but we may share your personal information with:
- Professionals appointed by yourself or appointed by an individual / organisation to effect the transaction including solicitors, estate agents and architects;
- Organisations that formally introduce you to us;
- Organisations you ask us to share your information with;
- Government departments such as Planning departments;
- Third parties specifically contracted by Walker Doble Limited to deliver our products and services;
- Credit Reference Agencies;
- Fraud Prevention Agencies in order to verify your identity and address, and for fraud prevention purposes;
- Where we are required to do so by law.
How to restrict our processing for marketing purposes
