Privacy Policy

Last updated 25 May 2018

We treat personal data provided to us with respect and integrity. Respect and integrity form part of our core values, which are the foundation for the conduct of our business in all parts of the globe. We are committed to protecting your privacy and it is important that you understand how we look after your personal data and how we make sure that we meet our legal obligations to you under UK data protection rules (including associated guidance) (the “Data Protection Laws“). This Privacy Policy outlines how we will use, store and share your personal data and supplements any fair processing notice provided to you.

This privacy policy applies globally to Lendlease Corporation Limited ABN 32 000 226 228 with its registered office at Level 14, Tower Three, International Towers Sydney, Exchange Place, 300 Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo NSW 2000, Australia, and its related companies (the ‘Lendlease Group’, ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’) and the personal data that we collect online through your use of our website www.homesbylendlease.co.uk, including all country-specific websites and any other website operated by any member of the Lendlease Group, (“website”), online systems or offline through your interactions with us.

As a global organisation the Lendlease Group regularly handles and transfers “personal data” (being information which is capable of identifying an individual) between Lendlease Group companies, including between Lendlease Group companies operating in different countries. Many of our developments are delivered by the Lendlease Group companies working together, sometimes through a joint venture vehicle such as a limited liability partnership. In such cases, any personal data submitted to or otherwise collected by this website which is related to those developments is collected by all of these organisations working together. Each of these organisations is a data controller in respect of the use it makes of this information and each has agreed to comply with this Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy, the terms ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’ are used to refer to the data controller primarily responsible for your personal information. Who the data controller is depends on where you are based, and the information being provided as set out below.

Cookies and IP addressesPlease see our cookies policyPlease see our cookies policyPlease see our cookies policy

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

Some examples of customer data retention periods:

Home owners

When you purchase a home from us, we’ll keep the personal data you give us for twelve years, so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations.

Inactive customers

If you’ve not used your account for more than five years, it will be flagged as inactive and we’ll contact you to ask whether you want to keep it open. Unless you reply to say ‘yes’, we’ll close the account and delete or anonymise the personal data associated with it.

Where we say above that we collect your information on the basis of our legitimate business interests, we are required to carry out a balancing test of these interests against your interests and rights under the Data Protection Laws.  As a result of our balancing test, which is detailed below, we have determined, acting reasonably and considering the circumstances, that we are able to process your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Laws on the basis that we have a legitimate business interest.

Legitimate interestWe have a legitimate interest in processing your information as:

We need the information to respond to your enquiries;

We need the information to send you information;

We would be unable to provide our services without processing your information;

We would be unable to process your job application without processing your information;

We need call recordings for evidential purposes and to help us perform our contract(s) with you; and/or

CCTV is there for safety reasons and for the prevention/ detection of crime.

NecessityWe consider that it is reasonable for us to process your personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as we process your personal data only so far as is necessary for such purpose.
Impact of processingWe consider that it is reasonable for us to process your personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests outlined above as it can be reasonably expected for us to process your personal information in this way for the purposes set out above. In most cases the information is being processed for your benefit as well as ours.

Special Categories of personal data

Where we process any special categories of personal data (e.g. diversity, medical, biometric information), we will separately ask for explicit consent, if this is required by law. In this case, you have the right to withdraw your consent to this processing at any time.

In some circumstances, we may have another lawful reason to collect such special categories of personal data, in which case we will inform you of this prior to the processing taking place.

DO WE USE COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES?

We use cookies on the website.

OTHER DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We may disclose your personal information to any member of the Lendlease Group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006 (“Lendlease Group”).

  • in the event of any insolvency situation (e.g. the administration or liquidation) of Lendlease Corporation Limited or any of its group entities;
  • if we, or any member of the Lendlease Group, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us about our customers and/or employees may be one of the transferred assets; in order to enforce or apply our website terms of use;
  • to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our staff, our customers, or others.This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations (including without limitation the local police or other local law enforcement agencies or regulatory bodies) for the purposes of staff and customer safety, crime prevention, fraud protection and credit risk reduction; and/or
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or regulatory requirements, or otherwise for the prevention or detection of fraud or crime.

We may disclose, use and/or aggregate, anonymous information about you for marketing, advertising, research, compliance, or other purposes.

DO WE DISCLOSE PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD COUNTRIES?

We may transfer personal information to countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected. These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information and may not provide the same level of protection.

Where your information is processed by or shared between the Lendlease Group, your information is likely to be transferred to or from Australia, the United Kingdom, Greater China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, the United States and Italy for the purposes set out above.

Where your information is transferred to a third party (for example our Customer Relationship Management system provider) this is also likely to be transferred to a third country, namely the United States.

Where your personal data is collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”), it will only be transferred outside of the EEA where an adequate level of protection for your rights as a data subject can be ensured, and where the transfer is otherwise in accordance with relevant data protection laws, including by incorporating standard clauses approved by the European Commission in our agreements.

WHAT DO WE DO TO HELP PROTECT PERSONAL DATA?

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our websites; any transmission is at your own risk.  Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We, and our external service providers, take reasonable steps to protect personal data from misuse, interference or loss and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure with appropriate safeguards and security measures and restrict access to those who have a legitimate business purpose and reason for accessing it. We store most data about you in computer systems and databases operated by either us or our external service providers. However, safeguards and security measures apply to personal data in both electronic and hard copy form.

Personal data is only retained for as long as it is necessary for the identified purposes, to the extent necessary for purposes reasonably related to those identified purposes (for example, resolving disputes) or as required by law, in accordance with the periods set out above.

WHAT RIGHTS DO YOU HAVE?

You have a number of rights under the Data Protection Laws in relation to the way we process your personal data, which are set out below.  You may contact us using the details set out below to exercise any of these rights. We will respond to your request within one month.
