Your data protection rights
In line with the Data Protection Laws, you have certain rights in relation to your personal data, although these rights are not absolute and therefore, they will not apply in all circumstances.
These rights are:
The right to access the personal information we hold about you (commonly known as a data subject access request). This right enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are processing this lawfully. There is no charge made for this.
The right to rectification; this means that you are able to ask us to correct any information we hold about you that is inaccurate or incomplete.
The right to erasure enables you to request that we delete or remove personal data relating to you where there is no good reason for us to continue processing 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).
The right to 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 ground and where we do not have compelling legitimate interests to override such objection. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
The right to restrict processing of your personal information; this means we will restrict the processing of your data, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
If you would like to exercise any of your rights please contact us at email@example.com. Please note, we will respond to your request within 30 calendar days, however we may need to verify your identity before we give effect to any request by you to exercise your rights.

Please note that if you opt-out of marketing we will retain a record of your data to ensure that you do not receive any future marketing from us.
Please note, if you have made a request for us to erase your data, we will still store enough information necessary for us to ensure that you are not contacted again; this will be held in a suppression list.
