IRES Ltd. does not collect personal information about you if you simply access its website and search or browse. Additionally IRES Ltd. collects personal information only if you use the “Contact Us” link from our website, if you request information for a specific property, or if you use the facility to share a property with an acquaintance.
At IRES Ltd. we take privacy very seriously, and this policy sets out details of the personal information we collect, and the ways in which we may use that information.
What information we collect?
We collect only the personal information which you choose to give us. Some facilities that we offer will work satisfactorily with you giving us no more than your email address. Others are possible only if we also have a full name, address and telephone number. If you have reservations about giving any personal information you do not need to give it – though this may limit the quality of our services.
How we use personal information
We may use personal information given for the following purposes:
• Sending you information that you have requested, such as properties coming on the market meeting search criteria that you have set.
• Contacting you to ask for your help in research or surveys to improve our services to you.
• Analysing usage with a view to enhancing the services offered, and improving the on-line experience.
• When necessary, as mentioned below, passing information to third parties.
We will not use any contact details or other personal information collected for purposes of any general mailing list (postal or electronic).
Passing details to Third Parties
We will not disclose the information we receive from you to unconnected third parties and will not use it for purposes of any general mailing list (postal or electronic) of our own. Insofar as you have authorized it, we may disclose your personal details to solicitors who have submitted the particulars of a property which you have looked up. For example if you ask us to to arrange a viewing we will pass your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address to the seller.
We expect solicitors who submit property particulars to us to treat all personal information they receive from us responsibly, and in accordance with data protection legislation.
Third party websites
We recognize the importance of privacy to our clients, and will keep this policy under review. Any changes made from time to time will be posted on our web site.
