HOW WE WILL USE YOUR INFORMATION DURING YOUR TENANCY

We will use your information to help us:

  • Collect your rent or service charge.
  • Keep in touch with you about things that affect you. 
  • Arrange repairs or servicing to your home.
  • Improve our services to make sure they meet your needs. 
  • Deal with anti-social behaviour. 
  • Investigate fraud or other criminal activity.
  • Protect children and vulnerable adults. 
  • Make sure that your home’s utility bills are paid and up-to-date.

This may involve sharing your information with, and getting information about you from, other organisations.

With your permission, we may use your photographs in our magazines, newsletters and annual reports, and on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages. If we need to use your information for any other purpose we will, where possible, tell you beforehand.

When your tenancy ends, we will keep your information for a specified time. This allows us to provide any further services that may be required, for example, giving references to another landlord. It also helps us deal with any follow up issues relating to your tenancy, such as helping you settle any rent or service charge arrears. Once this time has passed, we will destroy your information securely.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

We often need to share your information with other organisations. The list includes our repairs contractors, local councillors and the police.

From time to time we take part in data matching exercises with other organisations. These data matching exercises involve sharing your personal information with public and private sector organisations to prevent and detect fraud. If you would like to know more about data matching, please contact our business assurance team on 0345 678 0555. We may also share your information if it is needed in connection with legal proceedings or if we have to do so by law.

KEEPING YOUR INFORMATION SAFE

Any information we hold about you will be stored securely in line with the Data Protection Act 1998. You have a right to know what information we have about you and who we share it with. If you would like to see your personal information, or have a copy of it, please contact us. We charge £10 to cover administration costs. You can contact us by:
