Your Legal Rights
Right of Access
You have the right to have a copy of all the information we have on you. This is otherwise known as a data subject access request. Please email email@example.com to request this and we will try to respond within 30 days. Please note that we may extend this deadline by up to a further two months if your request is complex or is one of a number of requests received by you. In such circumstances we will explain why the extension is necessary.
Please note that we will not charge you a fee to exercise this right (or any of the other legal rights), except where your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. In such situations we would either charge a reasonable fee or refuse to comply with your request.
If you make a subject access request, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. We may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to your request to help speed up our response.
Right to Rectification
If you believe any information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have this corrected. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to advise of the error and we will take steps to make amendments. Please note that we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data that you provide to us.
Right of Erasure
Under Article 17 of the GDPR individuals have the right to have personal data erased in certain circumstances. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. For further information on how to exercise your right to be forgotten, please email us at email@example.com. This right does not extend to legal information we are obliged to hold for tax and other purposes.
Right to Object to Processing
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 as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms, you can do so. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Right to Request Restriction of Processing
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; (c) 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.
Right to Data Portability
This right enables you to transfer your personal data either to you or a third party. If requested, 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.
