2. The bases on which we process information about you

The law requires us to determine under which legal bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.

If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your personal information.

If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.

2.1 Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you

When you agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.

In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.

We may use it in order to:

verify your identity for security purposes
provide you with our services
provide you with suggestions and advice on our services and how to obtain the most from using our website

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.

Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.

We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.

2.2 Information we process with your consent

In most cases, we do not rely on consent as a basis for processing, where another legal basis applies. Where we do rely on consent we use your personal information only for the purposes for which you have consented.

We ask for your consent in relation to cookies – please see section 9.

If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.

Where we have obtained your consent we will continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or we no longer require the information. You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at: info@gleneskhomes.com or https://www.gleneskhomes.com/contact/. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

2.3 Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests

We may process information on the basis that either we, or another person, has a legitimate interest to do so.

Where we process your information on this basis, we do so after having given careful consideration to:

  • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means
  • whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm
  • whether it would be reasonable to expect us to process your personal information.

For example, we may process your information on this basis for the purposes of:

  • record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
  • responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
  • protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
  • insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk
  • protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so

2.4 Information we process because we have a legal obligation

We are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.

For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.

This may include your personal information.
