WHERE WE STORE OR USE YOUR DATA
We may store the data we collect in hard copy or electronically. The data is stored on secure servers and/or in our premises within the UK. We may share your data with third parties or transfer your data outside the EAA under certain circumstances.
RETAINING YOUR DATA
We will only retain your data for as long as we need it to fulfil our purposes, including any relating to legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on 25 May 2018, you have the following rights in relation to the information that we hold about you (your ‘personal data’).
- The right to request access to your data (commonly known as a "subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of your data and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- The right to request correction of your data. This enables you to ask us to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you.
- The right to request erasure of your data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your data in certain circumstances for example, if you consider that there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- The right to object to the processing of your data, where we are processing it to meet our public tasks or legitimate interests (or the legitimate interests of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your data for direct marketing purposes.
- The right to request that the processing of your data is restricted. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your data, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Request the transfer of your data to another party
