What is Customer Profiling?
One of the things we want to do is to improve the way in which we deliver our services to our customers. To help us build an accurate picture of the people who live in our homes, we need to obtain the correct information about you. This information is referred to as customer profiling.
Obtaining this information may help us to provide hearing loops, translate documents and send out relevant information that interests you and so much more.
Why has CCHA asked for personal information?
CCHA has a duty to protect the personal information we hold on our residents. When you phone in to our offices to request information regarding y our tenancy, we will need to ask you a series of questions to verify you are who you say you are.
The questions will relate to everyday information we hold about your home and tenancy.
If you visit our head office and request information, you will be asked to provide identification before we can help you. This is also to ensure we are talking to the right personal before releasing any personal information.
