Can I access my personal data?
You have a right to a copy of the information we hold about you and other extra information that we must give you under data protection laws. You might have heard this being called a subject access request or ‘SAR’. You can ask someone to make a request on your behalf, but they will need to be able to evidence that you have told them to do this.
Please remember that we may not be able to provide all the information you request if an exemption or restriction applies in the law. Examples of this could be if you ask for the same information lots of times or if we have had to share data with the police and they ask us to not let you know as it could harm an investigation.
Do I have the right to object to you using my personal data?
You can object to us using your personal data at any time. We will review your objection to see if we have strong enough legitimate reasons to carry on using your personal data.
Do I have the right to erasure?
You have a right to ask us to delete your data. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. We will consider your request and will tell you if we are not able to delete your data because of a special reason such as a law that means we have to keep data for a certain amount of time.
Do I have a right to restrict processing?
You can limit the way we use your personal data if you think it is inaccurate or are unhappy about how it is being used. You can also, stop us deleting your data if you have a valid and necessary reason.
Do I have rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling?
Automated processing is when a decision is made about you without people being involved. You can ask us to have a human review the decision, provide you with the reasons why a decision was made about you and explain what could happen from these decisions. You can also object to some automated decision making.
Do I have the right to data portability?
You can get your personal data from us and ask us to transfer it to another organisation. We have to provide it in an accessible and machine-readable format, if its reasonable for us to do so with the technology available.
Do I have the right to rectify incorrect information?
You have a right to ask us to update information we hold about you if it is incorrect. You will need to explain to use why the information is incorrect and we may ask you for evidence, so we can check our records and decide if an update is needed.
