Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
- Request information - about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it.
- Request access - to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This 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 enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
- Request erasure - of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing 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 - of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.

- Request transfer - of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”).
