Your Legal Rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the main responsibilities for an organisation

are highlighted by the data protection principles regarding personal data in Article (5).

These state that personal data must be:

a)      processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals;

b)     collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes;

c)      adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;

d)      accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;

e)      kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed;

f)      processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.

Simply put, you have:

(i)            the right to be informed,

(ii)          the right to request access by using a subject access request (identification will be required),

(iii)         the right to correct inaccurate information,

(iv)         the right of erasure provided that the data is not required by law or it is not required for the original purpose,

(v)           the right to restriction,

(vi)         the right to transfer to another data controller,

(vii)        the right to object to processing using your personal data for direct marketing.

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 is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive or refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We aim to respond to requests within a calendar month.

You can see more about these rights at the Information Commissioner’s Office website:

Please email us at if you wish to exercise any of these rights.
