We may use information we collect to develop and inform you about services we offer as well as undertake analysis and market research relevant to our business.
Some of the information that we request is mandatory (for example, because we need it to fulfil a legal, regulatory or contractual obligation or we need it to provide services to you).

3. Who we may share your personal information with
We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
that are specifically engaged by us to provide services to us or on our behalf to you (for instance, referencing companies, software providers, contractors, suppliers, etc.). In this case we will require those parties to keep that information confidential and secure and to use it solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to us or on our behalf;
if our business is sold or merged, or if we sell or buy any business or assets, we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets; and/or
We may also share your personal information with other parties to the same agreement whether before entering into a contract or after. For example, where you have a tenancy jointly with someone else or there is a guarantor for your tenancy, as necessary, we will share information either with the joint tenant(s) or the guarantor(s) (or both). This relates to your suitability as a tenant or guarantor, performance of your responsibilities under the tenancy agreement including information about any rent arrears or other breach of the tenancy terms. It is in our own legitimate interests and those of the guarantor(s) and tenant(s) to give and receive this information.
We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your personal information to any third party without your permission.
