  • Request the correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request the erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it.

  • it is no longer necessary for the purpose originally collected.
  • if the individual withdraws consent for processing the data.
  • when we are relying on legitimate interests as the basis for processing.
  • if the individual objects to the processing of their data, and there is no overriding legitimate interest to continue this processing.
  • when processing personal data for direct marketing purposes and the individual objects to the processing.
  • if personal data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation.

On request in writing we will review the request and respond within 28 days of the request if successful verification of identity has been completed.

Personal data is stored as per the personal data retention and deletion policy.

Right to Restrict Processing
