CW Estates Management Company Limited and Century Wharf RTM Companies Limited are committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information.
Data Protection Principles
Information we hold about you must be:
- Processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently.
- Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
- Adequate and relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
- Accurate and kept up to date.

The information we collect.
We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal information in the following circumstances:
- If you are a leaseholder (or own a dwelling on an estate we manage), our basis for processing your data is a contractual one. If you are an occupier or other third party, then our lawful basis for processing your data is as a legitimate interest. It is necessary for us to process personal information so that we can perform our role as managing agent of your block and to protect our legitimate interests.
- We collect required information to enable us to act as managing agent, which helps us to, provide our leaseholders and occupiers within the blocks we manage with the services they expect to receive from a managing agent and to improve and develop our services and performance.
We may also use your personal information in the following situations, which are likely to be rare:
- Where we need to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests)
- Where it is needed in the public interest (or for official purposes)
Personal information means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified.
We may collect the following types of information.
- Names (first name, middle name, and family names)
- Company name
- Addresses (correspondence address, address of the property you own, billing address)
- Details regarding your property including full address, details of any lease and details of your lender (if applicable)
- Phone numbers
- Email addresses
- Bank details
Sharing of your information
We may share your personal information with third party agencies and service providers, where there is a justified and necessary reason to do so.
We may also disclose personal information with law enforcement or other authorities if required to do so by applicable law.
Disclosure & Protection of your information
Information may be held at our offices, third party agencies and service providers. We have security measures in place to ensure that there is appropriate security in place for the information we hold. Access to the information is only given to those who have the appropriate authorisation.
How long your personal information will be kept?
We only keep your personal information for as long as is reasonable and necessary to provide the service required which may fulfil statutory obligations.
We rely on legitimate interests as our lawful basis for processing personal information and it is necessary for us to process personal information so that we can perform our job as managing agent.
