PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
How we collect and use personal data differs based on the interaction with the individual whose personal data we are processing. We have therefore set out our main use cases below:
Tenants who are searching for a new rental can enter their details via an enquiry form on the site. They provide personal data with the purpose to access our services. This includes their name and contact details, information regarding their employment status and income as well as information about the type of property they are looking to rent. Personal information should not be submitted if you do not wish for us to collect it.
This personal information is provided to our users who will search for rental accommodation on tenant’s behalf and/or match the tenants enquiry to their available stock as well as provide advice if requested. Findingaplace uses the tenant’s search area and details in conjunction with the users location and criteria to define if a user has access to a given tenants enquiry. Users access tenants’ personal data by logging into their account on the site. The user may transfer a tenant’s personal data into their own internal system or ‘CRM’.
