  1. Definitions

The data retention period used by by Leigh Shenton for potential customers is 60 days from the date of initial contact, unless that individual becomes a customer. At the end of a customer contract, personal data can also be kept for up to 60 days, due to deletion periods required. Current customers’ personal data is retained indefinitely until the contract is terminated.

If a request is made for data to be deleted earlier than this, providing data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or legal reasons, this can be done. Please email info@leighshenton.com to request deletion of personal data.

 

  1. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

Leigh Shenton shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the ICO or other legislators in laws or regulations to which Leigh Shenton as controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

  1. Existence of automated decision-making

Leigh Shenton do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. We will not knowingly work with or endorse any organisation, company or third party who does partake in automatic profiling.

  1. Website Use

Use of the Leigh Shenton website is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use certain services via the website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we will obtain consent from the data subject.

As data controller, Leigh Shenton has implemented technical measures to ensure this website is secure with personal data. However, internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot not be guaranteed.

9.1 Collection of general data and information

The Leigh Shenton website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls it up. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using gathered data and information, no conclusions are drawn about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of the website correctly, (2) optimize the content of the website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Leigh Shenton analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data being processed. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

9.2 Contact possibility via the website

The Leigh Shenton website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact, as well as direct communication with us. If a data subject contacts the controller by email or via contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
