This privacy policy explains how we use any personal information we collect about you when you use this website or when contacting us by email or phone. We collect information about you when apply to occupy or use land or property on the Estate, apply for a job or purchase goods or services from us.



Information we collect about you




We will ask for your personal and contact information when you apply to occupy or use land or property on the Estate including your name, email address, telephone number, mobile number, current address, age, family details, and your employment status. This information is held for a period of three (3) months and then securely deleted.


When you become one of our tenants or occupiers, we will hold your data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes of our contract with you and for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.


At the end of the tenancy or occupation period, your data will be deleted or anonymised (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for historical or archiving reasons.   


We only share necessary information about you with our approved contractors, agents and professional advisors. In order to fulfil any legal requirements, we will share your information with third parties where we have a statutory obligation to do so, which may include fraud prevention agencies.


Personal information when you purchase goods from us


If you have given us permission to do so, we will occasionally send you information about purchasing goods from us e.g. a Beef box from Castle Ashby Farms. If you no longer wish to be contacted please tell us and we will remove you from our list.  




In order to fulfil our employment contract with you, we will share your information with necessary employees, our payroll and pensions administrators. We will share your personal information with third parties where we have a statutory obligation to do so, for example, HMRC.


At the end of your employment with us, your details will be securely deleted once the statutory time requirement has passed.
