5. Your legal rights

Under cer­tain cir­cum­stances, you have rights under data pro­tec­tion laws in rela­tion to your per­son­al data includ­ing the right to receive a copy of the per­son­al data we hold about you and the right to make a com­plaint at any time to the Infor­ma­tion Com­mis­sion­er’s Office, the UK reg­u­la­tor for data pro­tec­tion issues (www​.ico​.org​.uk).

If you wish to exer­cise any of the rights set out below, please con­tact us.

You have the right to:

Request access to your per­son­al data (com­mon­ly known as a data sub­ject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the per­son­al data we hold about you and to check that we are law­ful­ly pro­cess­ing it.

Request cor­rec­tion of the per­son­al data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incom­plete or inac­cu­rate data we hold about you cor­rect­ed, though we may need to ver­i­fy the accu­ra­cy of the new data you pro­vide to us.

Request era­sure of your per­son­al data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove per­son­al data where there is no good rea­son for us con­tin­u­ing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your per­son­al data where you have suc­cess­ful­ly exer­cised your right to object to pro­cess­ing (see below), where we may have processed your infor­ma­tion unlaw­ful­ly or where we are required to erase your per­son­al data to com­ply with local law. Note, how­ev­er, that we may not always be able to com­ply with your request of era­sure for spe­cif­ic legal rea­sons which will be noti­fied to you, if applic­a­ble, at the time of your request.

Object to pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data where we are rely­ing on a legit­i­mate inter­est (or those of a third par­ty) and there is some­thing about your par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion which makes you want to object to pro­cess­ing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fun­da­men­tal rights and free­doms. You also have the right to object where we are pro­cess­ing your per­son­al data for direct mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es. In some cas­es, we may demon­strate that we have com­pelling legit­i­mate grounds to process your infor­ma­tion which over­ride your rights and freedoms.

Request restric­tion of pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data. This enables you to ask us to sus­pend the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data in the fol­low­ing sce­nar­ios: (a) if you want us to estab­lish the data’s accu­ra­cy; (b) where our use of the data is unlaw­ful but you do not want us to erase it; © where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to estab­lish, exer­cise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have object­ed to our use of your data but we need to ver­i­fy whether we have over­rid­ing legit­i­mate grounds to use it.

Request the trans­fer of your per­son­al data to you or to a third par­ty. We will pro­vide to you, or a third par­ty you have cho­sen, your per­son­al data in a struc­tured, com­mon­ly used, machine-read­able for­mat. Note that this right only applies to auto­mat­ed infor­ma­tion which you ini­tial­ly pro­vid­ed con­sent for us to use or where we used the infor­ma­tion to per­form a con­tract with you.

With­draw con­sent at any time where we are rely­ing on con­sent to process your per­son­al data. How­ev­er, this will not affect the law­ful­ness of any pro­cess­ing car­ried out before you with­draw your con­sent. If you with­draw your con­sent, we may not be able to pro­vide cer­tain prod­ucts or ser­vices to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you with­draw your consent.

No fee usu­al­ly required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your per­son­al data (or to exer­cise any of the oth­er rights). How­ev­er, we may charge a rea­son­able fee if your request is clear­ly unfound­ed, repet­i­tive or exces­sive. Alter­na­tive­ly, we may refuse to com­ply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion from you to help us con­firm your iden­ti­ty and ensure your right to access your per­son­al data (or to exer­cise any of your oth­er rights). This is a secu­ri­ty mea­sure to ensure that per­son­al data is not dis­closed to any per­son who has no right to receive it. We may also con­tact you to ask you for fur­ther infor­ma­tion in rela­tion to your request to speed up our response.

Time lim­it to respond

We try to respond to all legit­i­mate requests with­in one month. Occa­sion­al­ly it may take us longer than a month if your request is par­tic­u­lar­ly com­plex or you have made a num­ber of requests. In this case, we will noti­fy you and keep you updated.
