Information collection and use
How do we collect information?
Homecoming Letting Agency collects information when you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”)
When you sign up for our site, or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.
How long do we keep your data for?
Homecoming Letting Agency will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your account is in existence, or as needed to be able to provide the Services to you for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.
If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the Services to you.
Homecoming Letting Agency will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of filling out the site registration form, to anyone.
