Privacy policy

Personal information!
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
Our privacy policy inevitably cannot apply to third party sites that you may access from our website. We offer links to other sites which we hope will be of interest, but we make no representations whatsoever about any other website which you may access. We check from time to time that the links which we give remain valid, but they can of course change. We ensure that our website cannot pass on viruses or other elements which may damage your PC or the data carried on it, but we cannot guarantee the soundness of websites to which we offer links, or of other websites accessed from them. Nor does our offering a link to a particular website imply any endorsement by IRES LTD. of the accuracy of the information given there or any onward links. If on visiting a linked site you are invited to give personal information, then as the handling of the information that you may give will not be covered by our privacy policy it may be in your interests to check the privacy policy of the operator of the linked site.

Changes to Privacy Policy
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.

By disclosing your personal information to us, you indicate your consent to the collection, storage, processing and use of your personal information by IRES LTD. as laid out in this privacy policy.

IRES LTD. is registered under the Data Protection Act, and nothing in this Privacy Policy detracts from IRES LTD.'s obligation to comply with the Act and any regulations there under.
