Your legal rights
When we collect data from you, we will tell you how we are going to use your data. Where we record or share your information, you have a number of rights under Data Protection law:
The right to be informed
You have the right to be told how your personal information will be processed. This right applies whether or not you supply your information to us or whether we obtain your information from a third party. We have produced this Privacy Notice to explain what we do with your personal information and why.
The right of access to your personal data
You have the right to ask for access to the personal information held about you. This is also known as making a ‘Subject Access Request’.
The right of rectification of your personal data
If you notice that your personal information is inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to ask for this to be corrected.
We will always comply with a request for rectification unless there is a legal reason why we can’t, e.g. if the information is held for evidential purposes and was accurate at the time of collection. Where we can’t rectify your information, we will provide an explanation why.
The right to have your personal data erased
You have the right to ask for any information held about you to be erased. We must legally erase any information where there is no compelling reason for us to retain it. Where we can’t comply with a request to erase your information, we will explain this to you.
The right to restrict the processing of your personal data
You have the right to ask for the processing of your personal information to be blocked or suppressed. This means we can continue to hold your personal information, but we can’t process it in any other way. Where we can’t comply with a request for restriction of processing because there is a legal reason not to, we will explain this to you.
The right to object to certain types of processing
You have the right to object to certain types of processing of your personal information. If there is a legal reason why we cannot comply, we will explain this to you.
The right to ask for your data to be sent to another organisation (data portability)
There are some limited circumstances where you have the right to ask us to transfer your personal data to another organisation. We will always comply with requests from you to transfer your data where possible.
The right to object to automated decision making
Automated decision making is something that is done by a computer system with no human interaction, e.g. when applying for credit. We do not carry out any automated decisions without human intervention, but we will tell you if this changes in future.
When we can’t comply with a request
There are some circumstances where other laws might prevent us from complying with your right. Where this is the case, we will explain this to you and provide the reasons why.
To exercise any of the rights above, please contact our Data Protection Officer.
