The legal basis for the processing of this data is usually under the following paragraphs of the GDPR: Article 6 1.(b), the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, and Article 6 1.(f), it is in the legitimate interests of the data controller.
Our legitimate interest is the need to perform credit, anti money laundering and right-to-rent checks, to take up references as part of a tenancy or employment application or before doing business with you, to administer property lettings, tenancies, licences, employment, facilities, activities and events, to comply with repair and maintenance obligations within a tenancy agreement including legal obligations such as gas and electrical safety inspections and energy performance certificate requirements, to carry out estate management, farming, forestry and recreational activities, the supply of Estate products, to comply with relevant legislation and regulations, and for internal record keeping, reporting and business planning.
We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide and administer our services.
We operate a range of information and communications systems. Personal information is stored and managed on paper and electronically.
We take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Where held electronically, information is located on servers within the European Union.

6. Property information
Much of the data that we hold relates to our properties and their maintenance and repair. We do not consider this to be personal information.
However, if your name, contact details or other personal information is used in conjunction with property information, such as to organise a property repair appointment, then this is treated as personal information.
7. Data Sharing
In order to provide our services and/or meet our legal obligations, The Carington Estate may share information with third parties including contractors who carry out property repairs, inspections and assessments on our behalf.

8. Data Retention
Detailed information relating to a tenancy or contract will be kept for as long as the agreement is active or where funds are outstanding on the account, and for a period not exceeding seven years afterwards. The basic history of who held a tenancy at which property and when will be held forever.
We will keep some records permanently if we are legally required to do so. We may keep other records for an extended period of time, for example in order to defend or pursue claims, or for capital tax calculations. We also have legal obligations to retain some data in connection with our statutory obligations. We will keep data only for as long as we reasonably need it.
