    • To help Our Members benchmark their performance and identify requirements for additional services.

How long We will keep it for

We will stop advertising a property when We are instructed to do so by Our Members. However, the property information will remain available on the Platforms as historical property information to allow Users and Our Members to benefit from Services such as identifying previous for sale or sold prices (please see the ‘Historical property data’ section below for further information).

HISTORICAL PROPERTY DATA

What We collect and where it comes from

If You have any concerns about any historical property information available on the Platforms, please see the section of this Policy entitled "Removing Property Data from Our Platforms" (below); and
  • We also have data that relates to historical property listings on the Platforms which We collect from other third parties. For example, We obtain the sold prices of the properties from the Land Registry (or the Land Register of Scotland) and display those sold prices on the Platforms.

Why We collect it

  • We will use this information:
    • To assist potential purchasers and tenants when forming a view about historical market trends and potential property values;
    • To assist vendors when researching the approximate value of their property;
    • To enable Users to see detailed property descriptions and images of properties in areas that they may be interested in;
    • To allow Users to see property trends that they may be interested in, such as the previous sale and sold prices of properties in their local area; and
    • For Our other commercial purposes, such as to identify trends in the property market and to build property databases and automated survey and valuation tools for Our Members to use.

    • To provide property valuation tools and surveyor comparison software to Our Members.

How long We will keep it for

  • To the extent that property data is also Personal Information, it is generally the case that it ceases to be Personal Information over time. The historic property data is retained by Us whilst it is required by Us to provide the Services summarised in the "Why We collect it" box.
