Your data is stored securely, and used for the purposes of providing you with the services you order from us and is not provided to third party organisations for marketing purposes. This Privacy Policy details what personal information we collect, why we do so, how it is used, how we keep it secure, and the limited conditions under which it might be disclosed to others.

When you contact us or instruct us to provide a service for you, we may collect personal information such as your name, contact details, correspondence with us and other similar information. This information is collected to enable us to process your order or enquiry.

This list is not exhaustive, and in specific instances, we may need to collect additional data for the purposes set out in this Policy.

Our legal bases for collecting and using your data are:

  • The pursuit of our legitimate interests, to provide, improve and promote our services;
  • For contracts, including enquiries pursuant to a contract;
  • Complying with our legal obligations.

Our website uses “cookies”, which are small files stored on your device to remember specific information about your visit to the site.

We use Google Analytics cookies to collect anonymous data about how visitors use our site – this information is used to help us improve your browsing experience on our website.

Data Storage

We are committed to keeping your data secure. Our security measures include encrypting your data, strong internal policies and training for staff on data security, and regular assessments of our partners’ security systems.

Different retention periods apply for different types of data, however the longest we will normally hold any personal data for is ten years from the end of your contract or last contact with us. This is for planning and VAT purposes.

Information Sharing

To provide you with our services, it is necessary for us to share some of your personal data with third parties. This includes local planning authorities and architects.

We do not share your data with third-parties for marketing purposes.

Your Rights

Your rights include:

  • The right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you.
  • The right, in certain circumstances, to request that we delete personal data held on you, where we no longer have any legal reason to retain it.
  • The right to ask us to update and correct any incorrect or out-of-date personal data that we hold about you.
  • The right, in certain circumstances, to ask us to ‘restrict processing of data’, which means that we would need to secure and retain the data for your benefit but not otherwise use it.
