What personal data we collect and why we collect it
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.
Our visitors can choose to submit enquiries or applications to rent our accommodation using specific forms on our website. In doing so they agree to the sharing of the information they supply internally at Birch Ridge and within additional software applications we utilise to manage our properties. Additionally if an application is successful, any information collected will be retained by us for the prescribed statutory period during the tenancy and after the tenancy is completed.

Embedded content from other websites

We use Google Analytics to monitor the performance of our website. Google Analytics does not collect personally identifiable information. The Google Analytics terms of service can be found here.
Who we share your data with
All our tenancies, from application to completion are managed using software supplied by Property Tree. Due to the nature of this process, personally identifiable information is retained within this system, for the life of the tenancy, and beyond for a statutory number of years. The terms of service for Property Tree can be found here.
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.
