If you would like us to delete your account completely, removing all data held about you on our systems, please send an e-mail to admin@jla.je including your full name and e-mail address requesting this, and we will do it within 30 days of receiving that e-mail.  Where a complete deletion of your account is requested, you will not be able to able to access the “Members Only” section of the website and will not be able to place advertisements relating to your property/ies, nor will you receive electronic mailings from the Jersey Landlords Association.

If you send us information for publication which includes something you judge to be personal data, then you are giving us your permission to publish it. We will remove data following a request by you sent by e-mail to admin@jla.je within 30 days. Before that time, we will consider requests to remove personal data, based on the individual circumstances of the case.
