9. Your data protection rights

Under the GDPR/DPA, you have rights we need to make you aware of. The rights available to you depend on our reason for processing your information.


9.1 Your right to erasure of your personal data

You have the right to ask us to delete your personal data in certain circumstances:

  • When we no longer need your personal data;
  • If you initially consented to the use of your personal data, but have now withdrawn your consent; 
  • If you have objected to us using your personal data, and your interests outweigh ours;
  • If we have collected or used your personal data unlawfully; and
  • If we have a legal obligation to erase your data.


Where we collect personal data for a specific purpose, we will not keep it for longer than is necessary to fulfil that purpose, unless we have to keep it for legitimate business or legal reasons.  In order to protect data from accidental or malicious destruction, when we delete data from our services we may not immediately delete residual copies from our servers or remove data from our backup systems. 


9.2 Your right of access to your personal data 

You have the right to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you. To do this, simply contact our DPC (refer to section 12) and specify what data you would like. We will take all reasonable steps to confirm your identity before providing details of your personal data. 


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your 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.


9.3 Your right to rectification of your personal data 

You have the right to ask us to update or correct your personal data if you think it is inaccurate or incomplete. We will take all reasonable steps to confirm your identity before making changes to personal data we may hold about you. We would appreciate it if you would take the necessary steps to keep your personal data accurate and up-to-date by notifying us of any changes we need to be aware of.


9.4 Your right to restriction of processing

You have the right to ask us to limit how we use your data. If necessary, you may also stop us from deleting your data. To exercise your right to restriction, simply contact our DPC (refer to section 12), say what data you want restricted and state your reasons. You may request us to restrict processing of your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • If you have contested the accuracy of your personal data, for a period to enable us verify the accuracy of the data;
  • If you have made an objection to the use of your personal data;
  • If we have processed your personal data unlawfully and you do want it deleted; 
  • If we no longer need your personal data but you want us to keep it in order to create, exercise or defend legal claims.


9.5 Your right to object to processing

You also have the right to object to us processing your personal data where your data is being used:

  • For a task carried out in the public interest;
  • For our legitimate interests;
  • For scientific or historical research, or statistical purposes; or
  • For direct marketing.


You should contact our DPC (refer to section 12) to inform that you are objecting to any more processing of your personal data and state in your objection why you believe we should stop using your data in this way. Unless we believe we have strong legitimate reasons to continue using your data in spite of your objections, we will stop processing your data as per the objection raised.


9.6 Your right to data portability

The right to data portability allows you to ask for transfer of your personal data from one organisation to another, or to you. The right only applies if we are processing information based on your consent or performance of a contract with you, and the processing is automated. You can exercise this right with respect to information you have given us by contacting our DPC (refer to section 12). We will ensure that your data is provided in a way that is accessible and machine-readable.
