When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

YOUR RIGHTS UNDER GDPR

The GDPR creates some new rights for individuals, and strengthens some of the rights that currently exist. An individual’s rights under GDPR are:

  1. The Right to be Informed
  2. The Right of Access
  3. The Right of Rectification
  4. The Right to Erasure
  5. The Right to Restrict processing
  6. The Right to Data portability
  7. The Right to Object
  8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling
  1. The Right to be Informed
    This obligates the data controller’s need to provide at your request “fair processing information”, typically through a privacy notice such as this, in order to provide transparency over how 4MPGL uses personal data.
  2. The Right of Access
    This right allows you to request confirmation that your data is being processed, access to your personal data, and the supplementary information that is provided in this privacy policy.
  3. The Right of Rectification
    You have the right to have your personal data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete. If 4MPGL has disclosed your personal data to third parties, we must then inform them of the rectification where possible, and inform you about the third parties to whom your data has been disclosed, if appropriate.
  4. The Right to Erasure
    This is known as the “right to be forgotten”, and the principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continuing processing. Some requests however can be refused for specific reasons as set out on the ico.org.uk website. We may also have to retain some basic details to ensure we do not start processing your data again, should it be provided to us through a purchase of data.
  5. The Right to Restrict Processing
    You have the right to “block” or suppress processing of personal data, i.e. request not to be contacted for marketing or information dispersal. In this case your data would be retained to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.
  6. The Right to Data Portability
    This right allows individuals to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services, i.e. to move, copy or transfer personal data from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way (an example would be a bank allowing you to access your personal online banking data and then upload it to a price comparison website to compare and identify your best value banking options).
  7. The Right to Object
    Individuals have a right to object (on “grounds relating to his or her particular situation”) to:
  • processing of their data based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling);
  • direct marketing (including profiling); and

processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.

If you wish to discuss/request any of the above rights, please email the Data Protection officer on info@4mpropertiesgroup.com.

  1. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling
    Please refer to the Information Commissioners Office. 4MPGL does not undertake automated decision making and profiling.
