6. Your Legal Rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data, as listed below:
Further details of your rights can be found in the glossary at the end of this policy. The Information Commissioner’s website also provides more detail on the legal rights of individuals in relation to the processing of their personal data (www.ico.org.uk). If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, or have any queries or concerns about our use of your data please contact our Data Protection Team using the details at section 3.
6.1. What we may need from you when you exercise your legal rights
When exercising your legal rights above, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that requests are made by the individual themselves and that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request.
6.2. Fees and refusal to comply with requests
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive we may charge a reasonable fee and/or refuse to comply with your request.
6.3. Time limit to respond
We will respond to all legitimate requests within one month. If your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests and it is likely to take us longer than a month to respond, we will notify you of that and keep you updated as to progress.
7. Your right to make a complaint
In addition to your legal rights set out above, you also have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which is the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We are committed to protecting your personal data and would appreciate the opportunity to address any concerns or complaints you may have before you approach the ICO so that we can remedy them. Any concerns or complaints should be raised with the Data Protection Team in the first instance.
8. Your duty to inform us of changes to your personal data
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
8. Data security and data breaches
We take data and information security seriously. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know; they will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data security incident. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required or it is appropriate to do so.
