However, we may retain some basic contact data indefinitely where it is held in our legitimate
interests for marketing or business development purposes. We do not consider that doing so affects
the fundamental rights and freedoms of those to whom this personal data relates.

What are your rights?

You benefit from a number of rights in respect of the personal data we hold about you. We have
summarised your rights below, and more information is available from the Information
Commissioner’s Office website (https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-dataprotection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/). These rights apply for the period in which we process
your data.

Access to your data

You have the right to ask us to confirm that we process your personal data, as well as access to / copies
of your personal data. You can also ask us to provide a range of information, although most of that
information corresponds to the information set out in this notice.
We will provide the information free of charge unless your request is manifestly unfounded or
excessive or repetitive, in which case we are entitled to charge a reasonable fee.
We will provide the information you request as soon as possible and aim to do so wherever possible
within one month of receiving your request. If we need more time, or more, information to comply
with your request, we’ll let you know.

Rectification of your data

If you believe personal data we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you can ask us to rectify
that information. We will comply with your request within one month of receiving it, unless we don’t
feel it’s appropriate in which case we’ll let you know why. We’ll also let you know if we need more
time to comply with your request.

Right to be forgotten

In some circumstances, you have the right to ask us to delete personal data we hold about you. This
right is available to you:

• where we no longer need your personal data for the purpose for which we collected it;

• where we have collected your personal data on the grounds of consent and you withdraw that
consent;

• where you object to the processing and we don’t have any overriding legitimate interests to
continue processing the data;

• where we have unlawfully processed your personal data (i.e. we have failed to comply with
UK GDPR); and

• where the personal data has to be deleted to comply with a legal obligation.
There are certain scenarios in which we are entitled to refuse to comply with a request. If any of those
apply, we’ll let you know.

Right to restrict processing

In some circumstances you are entitled to ask us to suppress processing of your personal data. This
means we will stop actively processing your personal data but we don’t have to delete it. This right is
available to you:

• if you believe the personal data we hold isn’t accurate – we’ll cease processing it until we can
verify its accuracy;

• if you have objected to us processing the data – we’ll cease processing it until we have
determined whether our legitimate interests override your objection;

• if the processing is unlawful; or

• if we no longer need the data but you would like us to keep it because you need it to establish,
exercise or defend a legal claim.

Data portability

You have the right to ask us to provide your personal data in a structured, commonly used and
machine-readable format so that you are able to transmit the personal data to another data controller.

This right only applies to personal data you provide to us:

• where processing is based on your consent or for performance of a contract (i.e. the right does
not apply if we process your personal data on the grounds of legitimate interests); and#

• where we carry out the processing by automated means.

We’ll respond to your request as soon as possible and in any event within one month from the date
we receive it. If we need more time, we’ll let you know.

Right to object

You are entitled to object to us processing your personal data:

• if the processing is based on legitimate interests or performance of a task in the public interest
or exercise of official authority;

• for direct marketing purposes (including profiling); and/or

• for the purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.

In order to object, you must have grounds for doing so based on your particular situation. We will stop
processing your data unless we can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate grounds which
override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or
defence of legal claims.

Automated decision making

Automated decision making means making a decision solely by automated means without any human
involvement. This would include, for example, an online credit reference check that makes a decision
based on information you input without any human involvement. It would also include the use of an
automated clocking-in system that automatically issues a warning if a person is late a certain number
of times (without any input from HR, for example).

We don’t carry out any automated decision making using your personal data.

Your right to complain about our processing

If you think we have processed your personal data unlawfully or that we have not complied with Data
Protection Laws, you can report your concerns to the supervisory authority in your jurisdiction. The
supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”). You can call the ICO
on 0303 123 1113 or get in touch via other means, as set out on the ICO website
– https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.
