Promotional offers from us
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

We will never share your data to a third party for marketing purposes.

DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will never share your personal data with any third parties for marketing purposes, we will only disclose information when the law requires it in performance of criminal investigations or for a legitimate legal purpose.
If you purchase your data will only be shared within our legal company Imperial Living and the developer of your chosen property and all their contact details and information will be provided to you via the contract. You will consent to them receiving your information for the purpose of carrying out the legal contract when you reserve the property.
Information relating to users and the data collected from them will not be disclosed to third parties for any reason.
DATA SECURITY AND RETENTION
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
For buyers, the only data we keep on file for you is your name and contact information, we do not keep any other information on file for you after you have submitted the reservation form. It is passed to the relevant developer and once the contract has been drawn up we delete your reservation details and they are not kept on file or record by Imperial Living. The hard copy of the signed original contract will only be handled by you and the developers directly and will not come via Imperial Living, to protect from any mishandling and to keep the details contained private and secure.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We retain your contact details during the build time in order to keep you updated about your property but if you wish to opt out this is possible at any time.
Once the property is completed on the contract date, we no longer contact you to update you on anything unless required to do so.
The only reason we will contact you is if you opt to receive further details on new investments.
How long will you use my personal data for?
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Request erasure below for further information.
