Your rights
In this Section 6, we have summarized the rights that you have under
data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the
details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should
read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a
full explanation of these rights.
Your principal rights under data protection law are:
(a) the right to access;
(b) the right to rectification;
(c) the right to erasure;
(d) the right to restrict processing;
(e) the right to object to processing;
(f) the right to data portability;
(g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
(h) the right to withdraw consent.
You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your
personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together
with certain additional information. That additional information includes
details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal
data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the
rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a
copy of your personal data.
You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you
rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to
have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your
personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the
personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for
which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw
consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing
under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is
for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been
unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to
erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary:
for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for
compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or
defense of legal claims.
In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of
your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy
of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we
no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing,
but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence
of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the
verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on
this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we
will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment,
exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of
another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on
grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that
the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for:
the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the
exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the
legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such
an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless
we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing
which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is
for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

data is:
(a) consent; or

(b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to
which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to
entering into a contract,
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the
right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly
used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply
where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a
complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your
place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal
information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at
any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before
the withdrawal.
