  • Where we consider doing so would assist in the prevention and detection of crime we may share your information with the police or any other statutory authority with a remit to investigate the crime concerned.

Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.

Transfers outside Europe

We may transfer your information outside the EEA:

  • Where our third party service providers and/or subcontractors have data storage or processing facilities located outside the EEA.

Where information is transferred outside the EEA, we will ensure that there are adequate contractual and/or statutory safeguards in place to protect your information to an equivalent standard under this notice as if it were kept within the EEA.

Security

When you give us information we take steps to make sure that your personal information is kept secure and safe.

  • We ensure physical records are kept in secure locations with access limited to personnel with an operational need to access the information.
  • We ensure electronic records are kept on systems which are up to date with relevant security precautions.
  • We ensure electronic records are stored in encrypted format where reasonably practicable.
  • We ensure access to electronic records is restricted to personnel with an operational need to access the information.
  • We ensure personnel are trained on data security practices.

How long we will keep your information

We review our data retention periods regularly and will only hold your personal data for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as required by law (we may be legally required to hold some types of information), or as set out in any relevant contract we have with you.

Information relating to applications and credit checks, that do not proceed to contract. 1 year after application is made.
Information relating to tenancy agreements, occupation of a property, contracts, deposits, transaction data. 7 years after the last financial transaction or relevant correspondence connected with the contract, or 15 years after the end of the contract (whichever is later).
Information relating to employment contracts 7 years after the end of employment or relevant correspondence connected with the contract, or 15 years after the end of the contract (whichever is later).
Information relating to contracts executed as deeds. 13 years after the last financial transaction or relevant correspondence connected with the contract, or 15 years after the end of the contract (whichever is later).
Information relating to unsubscribed marketing records 1 year after the unsubscribe request.
Video CCTV recordings 1 year after the recording is made.
Telephone recordings 1 year after the recording is made.

Where more than one classification applies to a piece of information the longest retention period will apply. In the case of an investigation or incident, the relevant information will be retained for an extended period as reasonably determined by ASN Capital.

Some data may be held for longer than these periods whilst it is pending review to ensure that data that is required for a longer period (i.e. relating to ongoing long term contracts, etc) is not inadvertently deleted automatically. In some cases retention periods will be shorter than those listed above due to limitations of the equipment and services used.

Data will normally be checked for retention at 6 monthly intervals, so each of the retention periods specified above may be extended by up to 6 months until the next scheduled deletion.

  • ask for a copy of the information about you held by us in our records;
