You have the right to:
• Find out if we use your information, to access your information and to receive copies of the information we have about you.
• Request that inaccurate information is corrected and incomplete information updated.
• Object to particular uses of your personal data where the legal basis for our use of your data is our legitimate business interests (for example, profiling we carry out for our legitimate business interests) or the performance of a task in the public interest. However, doing so may have an impact on the services and products we can / are willing to provide.
• Object to use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. If you object to this use, we will stop using your data for direct marketing purposes
• Have your data deleted or its use restricted – you have a right to this under certain circumstances.For example, where you withdraw consent you gave us previously and there is no other legal basis for us to retain it, or where you object to our use of your personal information for particular legitimate business interests.
• Obtain a transferable copy of certain data to which can be transferred to another provider, known as “the right to data portability”.
• This right applies where personal information is being processed based on consent or for performance of a contract and the processing is carried out by automated means. You are not able to obtain through the data portability right all of the personal information that you can obtain through the right of access.
