User Data Rights

The right to be informed

  • You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how We use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.

The right of access

  • You have the right to obtain access to your personal information (if we’re processing it), and certain other information such as the reasons why we are processing or storing it. This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your personal information in accordance with data protection legislation and your agreement.

The right to rectification

  • You are entitled to request that your personal information is promptly corrected if it’s identified as being inaccurate or incomplete.

The right to erasure

  • This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information under certain circumstances where there’s no compelling reason for Us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.

The right to restrict processing

  • You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your personal information. When processing is restricted we can still store your information but may not be able to process it further. We maintain lists of people who have asked for further use of their personal information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.

The right to data portability

  • You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between Our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.

The right to object to processing

  • You have the right to object to certain types of personal data processing, including processing for direct marketing activities.

The right to lodge a complaint

The right to withdraw consent

  • If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to vary or withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw your consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.

We usually act on validated requests and provide the requested information or activity free of charge, but by law we are allowed to charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:

  • Baseless or excessive/repeated requests, or
  • Further copies of the same information.

Alternatively, there are reasons why we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.

Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your validated request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we will let you know.

To contact us please see below. If we do not address your request or fail to provide you with a valid reason why we are unable to do so, you have the right to contact your data protection regulator.

External Links

  • The Service includes relevant hyperlinks (posted by us or users) to external websites which are not directly controlled by us. Whilst all reasonable care has been exercised in selecting and providing such links, you are advised to exercise caution before clicking any external links. We cannot guarantee the ongoing suitability of external links, nor do we continually verify the safety or security of the contents which may be provided to you. You are advised, therefore, that your use of external links is at your own risk and we cannot be responsible for any damages or consequences caused by your use of them.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
