When you use our website your device’s browser provides us with information such as your IP address, browser type, access times and referring URL which is collected and used to compile statistical data. This information may be used to help us to improve our website and the services we offer.
The Purpose for Obtaining and Processing Your Personal Data
We obtain, use and process your personal data when you register your interest in the Development for the following purposes:
- to provide you with marketing communications/further information on the Development;
- to answer any queries which you may have about the Development;
- to arrange for viewings of units within the Development or show houses;
- to liaise with you throughout the bidding/sale process of a unit or units within the Development if you are a party involved in that bidding/sale process;
- to receive from you and process a booking deposit on the purchase of a unit or units within the Development;
- when an offer on a unit or units made by you has been accepted by Glenveagh, to draft and send a Sales Advice Notice to the Appointed Solicitor;
- for the Appointed Solicitor, as a Data Processor, to draft Contracts for Sale on receipt of the Sales Advice Notice from the Sales Agent,
- to facilitate the completion of the sale of a unit or units within the development purchased by you, for example arranging for you to collect the keys,
- to make suggestions about other developments that may interest you,

The Legal Basis for Obtaining Your Data
We process your personal data once we have obtained your consent to do so in order to send you marketing communications/further information on the Development. By registering your interest in the Development through any of the ways listed in the Introduction paragraph, this affirmative action will constitute your consent to us sending you our marketing communications/further information on the Development.
Please note that if you register your interest through our website, we will also ask you to tick the appropriate box to confirm your consent to received such marketing communications/further information on the Development and you will be provided with a link to view or download a copy of this Notice. If you register your interest at the Sales Agent’s premises, by telephone or by written correspondence, then you will be provided with a copy of this Notice by hand, by email or by post. You can withdraw this consent at any time, however it will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. To withdraw your consent, please use the contact details provided in the “How to Contact the Data Controller” paragraph above.
B. Legitimate Interests
In most cases, it is in our legitimate interest to process your personal data for the following reasons:
- To advertise and promote the Development;
- To enable us to communicate with you about the Development and the sale process if you make an offer/bid;
When we rely on legitimate interests as a legal justification for processing your personal data, we must consider whether those legitimate interests are overridden by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms. We have considered these matters and we believe that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms. If this were to change and if we think that there is a risk that one or more of your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms may be affected, then we will not use your personal data unless there is another legal basis for us to do so (for example by obtaining your consent).
C. For the Performance of a Contract to Which You are a Party or in Order to Take Steps at Your Request to Enter into a Contract
If a booking deposit is accepted from you by the Sales Agent, we will need to process your personal data in order for the Contracts for Sale to be drafted. An example of this would be sending a Sales Advice Notice which contains your personal data to the Appointed Solicitor who will draft the Contracts for Sale. We will also have to process your personal data in order to assist in the completion of the sale for example arranging for you to collect keys upon completion of the sale from the Sales Agent.
What Happens if You Do Not Want to Provide us with Your Personal Data
If you do not want us to process your personal data or if you request (see your rights) that we stop processing your personal data, then we cannot provide you with further marketing information about the Development, communicate with you about viewings or any offers/bids that you wish to make, accept a booking deposit, issue a Sales Advice Notice and/or assist in the completion of the sales process.

The right of access You have the right to obtain access to your personal data (if we’re processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Joint Controller Privacy Notice).
The right of rectification This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your personal data in accordance with data protection law.
The right to erasure This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your personal data where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
The right to restrict processing You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your personal data. When processing is restricted, we can still store your personal data, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their personal data to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in the future.
The right to data portability You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.
The right to object to processing You have the right to object to processing for direct marketing (which we do only with your consent) and also to processing which is carried out for the purposes of our legitimate interests.
The right to lodge a complaint You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with the Data Protection Commissioner.
The right to withdraw consent If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.
