Rights of Access, Correction, Erasure, and Restriction

The personal information we hold about you must be accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your information changes during your relationship with us.

Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This right enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This right enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This right enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing your personal information where we rely on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party). There is something about your situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object to processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This right enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

We will respond to your request without undue delay, but certainly within Four Weeks after satisfactory verification of your identity. In some circumstances we can apply an eight-week extension to this time frame when the request is complex in nature, and it cannot be answered in the four-week time frame. If this is to happen, we will inform you as soon as possible.


Right to Withdraw Consent

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.

To withdraw your consent, contact our DPM at [email protected]
