How we may use your Personal Data

The information we collect about you helps us to understand your needs and to provide you with the most appropriate service relating to the specific purpose for which either you have contacted us, or we have contacted you. We use your contact information to respond to queries or applications from you, to provide you with our services and to keep you informed of upcoming events which are relevant to your interests.

The Somerley Estate is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. We have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information you have given us, protecting it from theft, unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
