Your rights in connection with your personal data
By law, you have the right to:
- Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction or erasure of your personal data (unless we have the legal right to retain it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those 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 personal data for direct marketing purposes.
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.
- Change your data processing preferences at any time. If you have changed your mind you can contact us by email at email@example.com.
You should be aware that if you ask us to stop processing your personal data in a certain way or erase your personal data, and this type of processing or data is needed, for example, to facilitate your use of the website you may not be able to use the website as you did before. This does not include your right to object to direct marketing, which can be exercised at any time without restriction.
If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is manifestly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal data are not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
Right to withdraw consent
In the limited circumstances where we are relying on your consent as the legal basis to process your personal data for a particular purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact us at email@example.com. Once we know that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. Withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before the withdrawal.
