Will We Disclose the Information We collect to Third Parties?
Your privacy is important to us. We will not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third party. However, we may share this information with those companies working on behalf of The Mansion Group Ltd or its group companies. These partners will store and use your information to provide you with services that a) you have personally requested or b) The Company feels is necessary to keep you informed of. At no point will these partners use your information for any secondary purposes.
We may transfer your personal information to a third party in conjunction with a sale or investment of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, but steps will be taken to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
The Mansion Group Ltd may provide aggregate statistics about our services, customers, traffic patterns and other site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any information that could personally identify you.
The Mansion Group Ltd reserves the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests, to operate its systems properly or to protect itself or its users.
Our web server automatically records your IP address when you visit our website. We use this information to help us to manage our Website and to continually improve our service to you. Other than indicated above, we will not disclose any of your personal information without your permission unless we are required by law to do so (i.e. if required to do so by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).
How Do We Protect your Information?
We have strict security procedures covering the storage and disclosure of your information in order to prevent unauthorised access to comply with the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998. This means that sometimes we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
