What Information is Collected About You?
“Personal data” means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified.
We collect personal data from you when you access our website and use the platforms on the website.
Like most websites, when you access our website, your device’s browser provides us with information such as your IP address, browser type, access times and referring URL which is collected and used to compile statistical data. This information may be used to help us to improve our website and the services we offer.
Most of the other personal data that we obtain from you, for example your name, email address, telephone number, buyer type, financial status (e.g. mortgage approved) or age group is obtained when you sign up for email alerts or register your interest in a particular development through our website.
When you register your interest in a development
When you register your interest in a development, the personal data that we obtain from you includes your name, email address, telephone number, type of property you are interested in, buyer type (e.g. first-time buyer), mortgage status (e.g. mortgage approved), price range, and marketing preference.
If you register your interest in one of our developments or make any enquiry with us (directly, on our website or through an estate agent), we use the information you supply to
- understand the type of home you are interested in, and your requirements.
- send you further information about that development, like brochures, viewing opportunities, digital news articles about the development, and the completion of new phases.
- send you marketing information on similar Glenveagh developments that may interest you.
- respond to your enquiry.
When you wish to be contacted by a mortgage partner
When you submit the ‘Register Your Interest’ form to us, you will be asked for your consent to be contacted by a mortgage partner. This means your personal details will then be passed on to our mortgage partner and they can contact you for further details on obtaining a mortgage.
In providing our services, we may also receive personal data indirectly. Categories of such personal data include names, addresses, contact information and other information that is relevant to the provision of our services.
If you do not provide the requested information, we may not be able to provide you with our services or respond to any questions or requests you submit to us via our website. We will tell you when we ask for personal data whether it is a contractual requirement or needed to comply with our legal obligations.
