Your legal rights
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
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; (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.
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.
We do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
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.
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.
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.
