  • the correction of the personal information that we hold about you if it is incomplete or inaccurate;
  • the deletion or removal of personal data we hold about you, for example, where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it or where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below);
  • for our processing of your personal information to be restricted in certain circumstances, for example if you want to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
  • to obtain a copy of the personal information you’ve provided us with and to reuse it elsewhere or to ask us to transfer it to a third party of your choice; and

We may ask you for proof of your identity before dealing with your request, as a security measure to protect your data.

Right to Object

Where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests, you can ask us to stop processing it and we must do so unless we believe we have an overriding legitimate reason to continue processing your personal data or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If you are dissatisfied with how we have handled your personal data, you have the right to make a complaint to your data protection regulator (the Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK) and we will work with them to resolve it. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the regulator, so please do contact us in the first instance.
