We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, and then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
Information Collection And Use
Drift-In conducts business with a range of different 'customer types' listed below.
As a minimum, we will collect an individual's name, telephone number, e-mail address and home address for each customer type listed because there is a legitimate interest in holding this information in each instance, which we go on to explain below.
We will only retain personal data for as long as is necessary. How long is necessary can depend on a variety of factors.
In order to successfully and informatively respond to any potential court or insurance claim arising from dealings with any of customer types, as a commercial interest we will retain data for at least six years from the end of our business relationship as this is the maximum period of time an individual or company can submit a monetary court claim. We may choose to hold the information for longer should we see fit, however.
In any case, Money Laundering Regulations 2017 state that we must retain the records of Purchasers, Vendors, Purchasers' Solicitors and Vendors' Solicitors for a period of five years.
Additionally, the Limitation Act 1980 states adults have 3 years from the date of an incident (children have 3 years from their 18th birthday) in order to bring a personal injury claim to light, so data is retained for this period of time partly due to this legal ruling.
