Kelproperties (IOM) Limited (from here on called Kelproperties) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

Our Privacy Notice explains the data we collect about you when you interact with us. It gives you detailed information about what we do with your data and how we keep it safe.

We hope that this Privacy Notice will give you clear guidance on how we use your data and what your rights are, but if you have any further questions, please do contact us. You will find our contact details at the end of this Privacy Notice which you can use if you have any questions, including how to update or access your Information or to make a complaint. Please see the section Contacting us.

We use abbreviations in this Privacy Notice:

Contact Information means your name, business name, address, telephone numbers and email addresses.

Information means Personal Data as defined by the GDPR


A data controller (“Controller”) is the company that decides why and how your Information is processed i.e. how it is collected and used.

When you deal with us, the Controller of your data is Kelproperties. There may be exceptions to this and if there are, we will bring those to your attention.

Where this Privacy Notice refers to “we”, “our” or “us” below, unless it mentions otherwise, it’s referring to Kelproperties as the Controller.


The law allows us to collect and process your Information in certain circumstances:

1. With your CONSENT

In specific situations, we will seek your consent to collect and process your Information. When we seek your consent, we will make clear to you how we would like to use your Information so that you can make an informed decision about whether to allow us to collect and use your Information.


We may need your Information to comply with our contractual obligations to you. We may also require your Information where we take steps towards entering into a contract with you.

3. Where we have a LEGAL OBLIGATION

If the law requires us to, we may collect and process your Information.

4. Where it is in your VITAL INTERESTS

We will use your Information where we consider the processing of your Information will prevent or reduce any potential harm to you. For example, if we need to communicate a product safety announcement to you.

5. Where it is in ours, or someone else’s, LEGITIMATE INTEREST

In certain circumstances we may collect and use your Information where it is reasonable for us to do so in the interests of our business operations and where we consider that doing so will not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. This means we may use your Information in a reasonable way (that you might expect) but only where we consider this will not cause you any excessive or unnecessary risk.


1. We understand that your privacy is important and that you trust us to look after your Information. We will never sell your Information.

2. We may share your Information with carefully chosen third parties that we trust to carry out services on our behalf.

3. When Information is shared with a third party, we will apply a policy to help keep your Information safe:

  • We will provide only the Information they need to perform the services for us.
  • They may only use your Information for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.
  • We will work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.
  • If we stop using their services, any of your Information held by them will either be deleted by them or rendered anonymous.

4. We will not share your Information without good reason. Below are some of the categories of third parties who we may share your Information with:

i. Group Companies
We may share your Information with other companies within the group of companies.

ii. Our Suppliers and Service Providers
We may share your Information with our third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other organisations for the purposes of providing services to us or directly to you on our behalf.

iii. Other third parties
We may also share your Information if we’re under a duty to disclose or share it in order to comply with our legal obligations, to detect or report a crime, to comply with our tax obligations, to enforce or apply the terms of our contracts or to protect the rights, property or safety of our staff and customers. In these circumstances, your Information may be shared with the Police, Isle of Man Government, Isle of Man Treasury or other registered bodies.


1. Whenever we collect or process your Information, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and to defend any potential claims.
2. At the end of that retention period, your Information will either be deleted completely or anonymised. We may use your data in an anonymised way (so you cannot be identified) for statistical analysis and business planning.
3. When we consider how long to hold your Information, we will consider several factors:
a. whether any legal provisions require a maximum or minimum retention period;
b. whether the business requires the Information and documents for business operations;
c. whether we need to retain your Contact Information to allow us to contact you in the event of any product safety issue;
d. whether the Information and documents we hold may support any legal claim or defence. Where this is the case, we will usually hold documentation for 7 years after our contract with you terminates. This is because the law allows for 6 years to bring a claim in contract law and we allow an additional 12 months for the claim to be served and reviewed.


1. Sometimes we may share your Information with third parties and suppliers outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as the USA. The EEA includes all EU Member countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. We may transfer Information that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA. The table describing our Suppliers and Service Providers above will provide more detailed information about when this may occur.

2. If we do this, we have policies in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times.

3. Any transfer of your Information will follow applicable laws and we will treat your Information under the principles of this Privacy Notice.


1. We use technical and organisational security measures to protect the Information supplied by you and managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction, and access by third parties. Our security measures are continually improved in line with technological developments.

2. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Information whilst in transit to our website and any transmission is at your own risk.

3. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access an account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to use the same password as on other accounts and not to share your password with anyone.
