Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

When contacting you for the above purposes, unless you tell us otherwise we may do so by phone, post or email or any other way (electronic or otherwise).

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by opting out during any communication. If you do not want us to use your data in this way you can contact us at any time (see How to Bray Fox Smith Ltd.)

You may request details of personal information we hold about you under current legislation and regulations. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact us. This may incur a small administrative fee.

Disclosure Of Your Information

We may process your personal information for certain direct marketing initiatives which could include postal communications, email marketing campaigns or telephone calls (directly from ourselves or on behalf of another) on property related matters which we believe may be of interest to you.

Whenever your personal data is processed for these purposes we will ensure that we always keep your Personal Data rights in high regard and take account of these rights.

We may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We can (and you authorise us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property rights infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.
