If you are resident in the EEA, you have several rights under the GDPR:

You can ask for access to the information we hold on you

You have the right to ask for all the information we have about you and the services you receive from us. When we receive a request from you in writing, we must give you access to everything we’ve recorded about you as well as details of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data.

We will provide the first copy of your personal data free of charge but we may charge you a reasonable fee for any additional copies.

We cannot give you access to a copy of your data if this would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

You can ask to change information you think is inaccurate

You should let us know if you disagree with something included in your personal data.

We may not always be able to change or remove that information but we’ll correct factual inaccuracies and may include your comments in the record to show that you disagree with it.

You can ask to delete information (right to be forgotten)

In some circumstances you can ask for your personal information to be deleted, for example, where:

  • your personal information is no longer needed for the reason that it was collected in the first place
  • you have removed your consent for us to use your information (where there is no other legal reason for us to use it)
  • there is no legal reason for the use of your information
  • deleting the information is a legal requirement

Where your personal information has been shared with others, we will do what we can to make sure those using your personal information comply with your request for erasure.

Please note that we can’t delete your information where:

  • we are required to have it by law
    • it is used for freedom of expression
    • it is used for public health purposes
    • it is for scientific or historical research or statistical purposes where deleting the data would make it difficult or impossible to achieve the objectives of the processing
    • it is necessary for legal claims.

You can ask us to limit what we use your personal data for

You have the right to ask us to restrict what we use your personal data for where:

  • you have identified inaccurate information, and have told us of it
  • where we have no legal reason to use that information but you want us to restrict what we use it for rather than erase the information altogether

When personal data is restricted it can’t be used other than to securely store the data and with your consent to handle legal claims and protect others, or where it’s for important public interests.

You can ask to have your personal data moved to another provider (data portability)

You have the right to ask for your personal information to be given back to you or another service provider of your choice in a commonly used format. This is called data portability.

This right only applies if we’re using your personal information with consent and if decisions were made by a computer and not a human being. It does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

You can make a complaint

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the local supervisory authority for data protection in the EU member state where you usually reside, where you work or where you think an infringement of data protection law took place.


We only keep your data as long as it is necessary for the purposes of processing it or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements.

In some circumstances it is not possible for us to specify in advance the period for which we will retain your personal data.
