You have the right to object to us using your personal information for our organisation’s legitimate purposes. For more information about our organisation’s legitimate purposes for using your personal information, and your rights and how you can exercise them, please see the sections legal grounds for using your personal information and your rights.
To comply with our legal obligations In certain circumstances, we use your personal information only to the extent required in order to enable us to comply with our legal obligations, including sharing your personal information with law enforcement agencies, regulators, courts or other public authorities if required to do so by law.
We only collect and use your personal information if we have a legal ground to do so. We rely on a number of different grounds for handling your personal information, which are as follows:
You have the following rights regarding your personal information.
3. Right to rectification: You are entitled to have your personal information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
4. 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 personal information where there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions (for example, we have the right to continue using your personal information if such usage is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations).
5. Right to restrict processing: You have the right to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your personal information in certain circumstances (for example, where you think the personal information we are using about you is inaccurate, whilst we verify its accuracy). When usage is restricted, we can still store your personal information, but may not use it further. We keep 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.
6. Right to data portability: You have the right to obtain and reuse your personal information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in certain circumstances when we use your personal information on certain legal grounds, such as consent. In addition, where certain conditions apply, you have the right to have such information transferred directly to a third party. The right to data portability does not apply to personal information which it is necessary for us to process for our organisation’s legitimate purposes. Please see the section legal grounds for using your personal information to read about the circumstances in which we use your personal information on the basis of consent or for our organisation’s legitimate purposes.
7. Right to object to processing on the grounds of legitimate interests: You have the right to object to us using your personal information for our organisation’s legitimate purposes. Please see the section legal grounds for using your personal information to read about the circumstances in which we use your personal information for our organisation’s legitimate purposes.
8. Right to withdraw consent to processing: If you have given your consent to us to use your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that any use of your personal information up to that point is unlawful).
9. Right to make a complaint to the data protection authorities: You have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if you are unhappy with how we have handled your personal information or believe our use of your personal information does not comply with data protection law.
