6. How do We use your data? 6.1 All personal data is processed and stored securely, for no longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. We will comply with Our obligations and safeguard your rights under the GDPR at all times. For more details on security see section 7, below. 6.2 Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary for Our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to Our use of your personal data (e.g. by subscribing to emails), or because it is in Our legitimate interests. Specifically, We may use your data for the following purposes: 6.2.1 Providing and managing your Account; 6.2.2 Providing and managing your access to Our Site; 6.2.3 Supplying Our services to you of facilitating the tenancy process (please note that We require your personal data in order to enter into a contract with you); 6.2.5 Replying to emails from you; 6.2.6 Market research; and 6.2.7 Analysing your use of Our Site and gathering feedback to enable Us to continually improve Our Site and your user experience.§§§§§§§§ 6.3 You have the right to withdraw your consent to Us using your personal data at any time, and to request that We delete it. 6.4We do not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Data will therefore be retained for the following periods (or its retention will be determined on the following bases): 6.5.1 the Company shall not retain any personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the purpose(s) for which that data is collected, held, and processed. 6.5.2 Different types of personal data, used for different purposes, will necessarily be retained for different periods (and its retention periodically reviewed), as set out below. 6.6.3 When establishing and/or reviewing retention periods, the following shall be taken into account: (a) The objectives and requirements of the Company; (b) The type of personal data in question; (c) The purpose(s) for which the data in question is collected, held, and processed; (d) The Company’s legal basis for collecting, holding, and processing that data; and (e) The category or categories of data subject to whom the data relates. 6.6.4 If a precise retention period cannot be fixed for a particular type of data, criteria shall be established by which the retention of the data will be determined, thereby ensuring that the data in question, and the retention of that data, can be regularly reviewed against those criteria. 6.6.5 Notwithstanding the following defined retention periods, certain personal data may be deleted or otherwise disposed of prior to the expiry of its defined retention period where a decision is made within the Company to do so (whether in response to a request by a data subject or otherwise). 6.6.6 In limited circumstances, it may also be necessary to retain personal data for longer periods where such retention is for archiving purposes that are in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes. All such retention will be subject to the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the rights and freedoms of data subjects, as required by the GDPR. 7.
