1. Use and Disclosure of the Information and Client Information
Knightstone will use the Information in a variety of ways, some of which will assist and enable Knightstone to provide its services to its clients and prospective clients. This may include Knightstone contacting you directly to monitor progress and to inform you of progress on a specific application and Knightstone publishing some Information (e.g. your name and country of origin) on certain pages of its websites for publicity purposes.
Knightstone may also in its sole discretion retain the Information and use it for direct marketing services, e.g. Knightstone may send marketing information to you. Such marketing information may relate to goods and/or services provided by Knightstone and/or third parties as well as goods and/or services provided by third parties which are entirely unrelated to your original requests.
Knightstone will not sell or rent your personal data to anyone. We will only send personal data about you to other organisations when we have your consent. This is only necessary when we need to share your information in order to provide information or services requested. However, we may disclose your personal data where we are required to do so by law or a court order.
You shall indemnify and keep Knightstone and Knightstone’s directors, officers, employees and agents fully indemnified against all actions, claims, proceedings, costs and damages (including any damages or compensation paid by Knightstone on the advice of its legal advisors to compromise or settle any claim) and all legal costs or other expenses arising out of any breach of any representations, warranties and/or undertakings or out of any claims by a third party based on any facts which if substantiated would constitute such a breach.
All Information provided by you will be kept as confidential and as secure as possible. The Information provided by you can only be exchanged between you, Knightstone and any third party to whom Knightstone decides to transfer the Information to for the purposes detailed above. Furthermore, as required by the Act, Knightstone follows strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of the Information which you have given to Knightstone, to prevent unauthorised access.
Knightstone uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of the Information. Knightstone treats personal Information as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. Knightstone employees use many different security techniques to protect the Information from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.

NO HIDDEN COSTS
Many Landlords claim to have fancy gyms, cafes etc. but inflate their rent to cover the costs. We don’t believe in such hidden costs within the rent and therefore you are paying a very competitive rent for a high quality apartment. We can use our clout to get you discounted Gym membership and entrance into clubs and bars should you desire. This is how we can keep luxury apartments rents low and allow you to choose what to pay for.
Have you experienced speaking to agents who will speak to the Landlord who will get back to you and nothing ever seems to happen? With us, you have a direct number for the Landlords Office and therefore will not need to deal with agents or any 3rd parties. Your issue will be dealt with in fast and efficient manner. The Landlord makes a weekly visit to the building so you can arrange to speak to him personally.
As we care for the welfare of our students we have a 24/7 security patrol company who will assist with any safety concerns or if there is unfair disturbance from other students. If you have forgotten or lost your key then just call security patrol who will do the proper ID checks and let you in. If you are being disturbed by a party or loud music in the middle of the night then just phone security who will sort out the noise-makers. We know that internet is vital so we have a dedicated locally based Virgin media technician whom you can call directly on his mobile should you have any internet issues and he will pop round to sort anything.
