Changes to this Policy

We will post any material changes that we may make with our Privacy Policy in the future on the Website. Where appropriate, we will notify you of the change by email. This will ensure that you are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it and the circumstances under which we may disclose it.

Access to information

Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with Data Protection Legislation. We will respond to any valid access request within 30 days and will make available your information to you in a commonly used electronic format, unless you request the information in a different format. To obtain a copy if the information we hold about you please contact us in the manner set out at the end of this Privacy Policy.

However, where a request is excessive, onerous or repetitive, it may take us longer than 30 days to process this request and we may charge you a reasonable fee. Where this is the case we will inform you.

Erasure or rectification of information

Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to ask us to erase information held about you if it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or processed. You also have the right to ask us to rectify inaccurate information we hold about you or to complete incomplete information about you. Your right of erasure and/or rectification can be exercised in accordance with Data Protection Legislation. If you make a valid erasure or rectification request we will take reasonable steps to erase or rectify your information so far as required by Data Protection Legislation. However, Data Protection Legislation allows us to retain and continue processing your information in certain circumstances and if any of those circumstances apply we may continue to hold and process your information (in accordance with this Privacy Policy) despite your request for us to erase it. Such circumstances include (but may not be limited to) where our continued holding and/or processing or your information is necessary:

  • for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • for compliance with a legal obligation that requires processing of personal data by EU or member state law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the area of public health;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, or scientific and historical research purposes or statistical purposes in so far as the erasure of the information would be likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of the archiving purposes in the public interest, or the scientific and historical research purposes or the statistical purposes, and
  • for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to complain

If you consider that we have failed to comply with this Privacy Policy and/or Data Protection Legislation in relation to information about you which we hold or process, you have a right to make a compliant to the relevant supervisory authority, which in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office
