Your Rights under the Personal Data Protection Laws

As our customer you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (known as a data access request). This enables you to receive details of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request Correction of the personal data that we hold about you.
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it.
  • Object to processing of your personal data 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 basis. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or another data controller if the processing is based on consent, carried out by automated means and this is technically feasible. We do not believe that any circumstances exist where this right would be exercised due to the very small amount of data held.

Your Responsibilities under the Personal Data Protection Laws

Within your rights under privacy laws you are entitled to ask for a copy of the data (access request) that we hold in our systems. We will follow a process to make sure that before any personal data is transmitted to the requester, that they are legitimately entitled to receive it.

If you do not co-operate in this process to establish the legitimacy of the request, the information will not be released. Any requests on my part to verify your request will be undertaken solely to protect us both against a breach of your personal information.

Should this situation occur and not be resolved to your satisfaction, you should write or contact the ICO office to escalate the matter.

Automated Decision Making
