Privacy Policy and GDPR for single Landlord?

Privacy Policy and GDPR for single Landlord?

Has anyone got a simple, easy to understand, easy to use Privacy Policy and GDPR that just refers to the control of data in electronic and paper format by a single sole trading Landlord please?

I am baffled by the templates that even the NRLA have drafted. The whole thing is confusing as heck to me!

Surely they can be a bit generalist, if they are too defined then they will be too specific? Where is the balance?

Even posting this I have to tick a box that lists pages of info to digest!

Many thanks

It's only the Data Controllet ( Landlord ) that has to register Once, regardless of how many tenancies you have AND that's only if you process Data ELECTRONICALLY.

If you keep a tenant's telephone number on your phone then that's electronic, and so an ICO registration is required.

Yes, that's technically accurate although whether the ICO would pursue registration to that degree is another matter
The ICO have said they are looking for the 'spirit' of compliance.

That means:
* No email communications with them.
* No preparing tenancy agreement on a computer (unless all personal data are hand-written after printing)
* No record of rent payments in spreadsheets or accounting packages.

If you pay by direct debit the cost is (I think) £35 rather than £40. Each legal entity must register so if you have multiple companies each one must be registered (we just lost this battle with the ICO).
