In this Section 7, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection
law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in
our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the
regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.
Your principal rights under data protection law are:
the right to access;
the right to rectification;
the right to erasure;
the right to restrict processing;
the right to object to processing;
the right to data portability;
the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
the right to withdraw consent.
You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data
and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional
information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the
processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal
data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to
you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but
additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking
into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about
In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without
undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in
relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you
withdraw consent to consent-based processing; the processing is for direct marketing
purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are
certain general exclusions of the right to erasure. Those general exclusions include
where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and
information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise
or defence of legal claims.
In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal
data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing
is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes
of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or
defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification
of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue
to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your
consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection
of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating
to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the
processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried
out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or
the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make
such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can
demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your
interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or
defence of legal claims.
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct
marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such
an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is consent,
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive
your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and
freedoms of others.
If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data
protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory
authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your
habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is
consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not
affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice
