We are the providers of the website www.renovatealerts.com (referred to as the "Site"). We are registered as a Data Controller with the Information Commissioner's Office with registration number Z8756489. We are not an estate agency.

Commitment to protecting the privacy of our Subscribers
The information we collect from you is only that required by us in order to provide you with the information you have requested. Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, we do not supply your personal information to any other person unless you have expressly authorised us to do so.
