You have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact our Data Protection Officer by email, phone, or by letter.
- Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This includes details of what information we hold about you and a copy of that information. The information will be provided free of charge and, unless there are grounds for extending the statutory deadline, the information will be provided to you within one month of receipt of your request. If we have reasonable doubts with regards to the identity of the person making the request, we may require the provision of additional information to confirm the identity of the data subject.
- Request rectification of your personal data. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you completed or corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
- Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where:
- if the processing of your personal data is subject to your consent, you withdraw your consent;
- you object to the processing of your personal data.
We reserve our right to reject your request in circumstances, for instance, whereby there are other legal grounds for the processing of your personal data and/or there are overriding legitimate grounds for the processing of your personal data and/or, where it is necessary to keep your information for the purposes of establishing, making or defending legal claims.
- 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:
You contest the accuracy of personal data, in which case, the processing will be restricted for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the data.
Where the processing is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it.

You have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- 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 or any services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
Request for disclosure and/or confirmation that your personal data is being processed will normally be entertained free of charge. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is manifestly excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
Please note that upon a request being made, we will generally also ask for confirmation of your identity and may need further information from you in order to locate the information, in which case the time period starts from the date we have that detail.
Any request, whether entertained favourably or unfavourably, will normally be entertained within one month, you will be informed accordingly in writing. The delay of one month may be extended where necessary.
Please note that in some cases we may not be able to comply fully with your request, such as in circumstances wherein your request also involves the disclosure of personal data relating to someone else or where confidentiality needs to be maintained.
