Your data and your right to access Personal Information
The safe storage of your Personal Information is very important to us. We respect your right to privacy and your rights to access information held about you.
You have the right, under the GDPR, to:
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request a correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
- Object to processing of your personal information 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. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
- Request erasure of your personal information, ensuring your ‘right to be forgotten’. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information 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 information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below). You should be aware that, for legal reasons, we may be unable to erase certain information.
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
If you would like to make a request, please email us at email@example.com and we will answer and deal with your request within fourteen working days. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information. However, we may have to charge a small fee if your request for access is agreed to be unfounded or excessive.
The security of your Personal Information is also of utmost importance to us. All users of the internet should have confidence in accessing and sharing information.
However it is vital to understand that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We have set up a series of safeguards and complied with current regulations to protect your Personal Information, but we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
In the event of a breach of security we pledge to notify you within three days of its discovery with a plan of action to help you to take any necessary steps if your data has been compromised.
