Privacy Policy

The Landlord Association, are fully compliant and adhere completely with all requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003. More and more people are conducting their personal affairs online. Online shopping, social networking, job hunting and the ability to carry out ‘official’ functions, such as renewing car tax or contacting local councils and government departments online, are now an everyday part of life. The personal information online code of practice was launched in July 2010 following an extensive consultation process. The code explains how the Data Protection Act applies to the collection and use of personal data online. It provides good practice advice for organisations that do business or provide services online and we adhere to it completely. The code explains the privacy risks that may arise when operating online, and suggests ways for organisations to deal with them. It stresses the importance of treating consumers’ information properly, and being transparent about how their information is used. The code covers topics including online marketing, operating internationally, and applying individuals’ rights in an online environment. It applies equally to the public and private sectors. On 26 May 2011 the rules on using cookies changed and again we adhere to them completely also. Attached to this page within a module at the bottom of the right hand column, you will see the code of practice for your perusal should you wish to download it and read through and below is our websites own privacy policy highlighting
