3 Requesting access to your personal data

We respect your right to control your data. Your rights include:

Right to rectification – you have the right to request that we correct any inaccuracies in the personal data stored about you.

Right to erasure – in certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we erase your personal data.  For example, you may exercise this right in the following circumstances:

  • your personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed by us;
  • where you withdraw consent and no other legal ground permits the processing;
  • where you object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;
  • your personal data have been unlawfully processed; or
  • your personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation.

Where we store your personal data for statistical purposes, we may not be able to comply with such a request where it would likely impair such statistical purposes or where we require your personal data for compliance with a legal obligation or in connection with legal proceedings.

Right to restriction – you have the right to restrict our processing of your personal data where any of the following circumstances apply:

  • where you feel that the personal data which we hold about you are not accurate. This restriction will be in place for a period to enable us to verify the accuracy of your personal data;
  • where the processing is unlawful and you do not want your personal data be erased and request the restriction of its use instead;
  • where we no longer need to process your personal data (e.g. any of the purposes outlined above have been completed or expire), but we require it in connection with legal proceedings;
  • where you have objected to our processing of your personal data pending the verification of whether or not our legitimate business interests override your interests, rights and freedoms.

Where you exercise your right to restrict our processing of your personal data, we will only continue to process it with your consent or in connection with legal proceedings or for the protection of the rights of other people or for reasons of important public interest.

Right to data portability – you have a right to receive and transfer the personal data that you provide to us in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format where we process your personal data on the legal bases of: a) your consent; or b) where it is necessary to perform our contract with you. Where you make such a request, we will directly transfer your personal data on your behalf to another controller of your choice (where it is feasible for us to do so).

Right to withdraw consent – you have a right to withdraw your consent, at any time, to our processing of your personal data which is based on your consent. Where you exercise this right, our processing of your personal data prior to your withdrawal of consent will remain valid.

Right to object to processing – In certain circumstances, you have a right to object to our processing of your personal data where we process it on the legal bases of our legitimate business interest or your consent to marketing. We may not be able to comply with such a request where we can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate grounds for us to process your personal data which override your interests, rights and freedoms or where the processing of your personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation or in connection with legal proceedings.
