adapt how you prefer us to communicate with you.

Your Rights

You have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data such as limiting the information we
keep for you or access to your data usually free of charge. There are circumstances where we may charge a
reasonable fee if your request is repetitive or excessive. Please contact us if you would like to discuss or
exercise your rights under the General Data Protection Regulations.

Your rights include:

Request access to your personal data (Data Subject Access Request or a DSAR) which enables you to receive a
copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that it is being processed lawfully.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. Whilst we will take great care in ensuring the
data we hold for you is accurate and up to date, we will correct any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about
you after verifying the new data you provide to us.

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 continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your
personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we
may have processed your information unlawfully or where we’re required to erase your personal data to comply
with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for
specific legal reasons which will be notified to you.

Object to processing of your personal data where we’re 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 as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where
we’re processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we
have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of
your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our
use of the data is unlawful but you don’t want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no
longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use
of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We’ll provide to you, or a third party you
have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machinereadable format. Note that this right
only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the
information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we’re relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this
won’t affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw
your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We’ll advise you if this is the
case at the time you withdraw your consent.
