02 Your privacy rights
2.1 We have summarised below your privacy rights. Some of these rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries below. For this reason, you should read the applicable data protection laws and guidance from the UK Information Commissioner for a fuller explanation of these rights. You can do so by using this link https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/.
2.2 You may exercise any of your rights below in relation to your personal data by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.3 Your principal rights under the applicable data protection laws are:
- the right to access;
- the right to rectification;
- the right to erasure;
- the right to restrict processing;
- the right to object to processing;
- the right to data portability;
- the right to complain to the UK Information Commissioner; and
- the right to withdraw consent.
2.4 Right to access: 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. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
2.5 Right to rectification: 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. You can ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that your personal data is accurate and kept up to date.
2.6 Right to erasure: In some circumstances, you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; the processing is for direct marketing purposes, and the personal data has been unlawfully processed. However, there are certain general exclusions of the right to erasure. Those general exclusions include where processing is necessary for: exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; compliance with a legal obligation; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. The consequences of erasing your personal data are, for example, that you will be unable to access some content on our Website and will be excluded from marketing communication communications including (for example) newsletters, event information, blogs etc.
2.7 Right to restrict processing: 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 individual or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
2.8 Right to object to processing: 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 data 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.
2.9 Right to object to processing (direct marketing): You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including, for example, profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose. You may exercise this right at any time by (a) hitting the unsubscribe button in the email footer of the newsletter we send you, or (b) by contacting our Data Compliance Manager in writing using the following contact details email@example.com.
2.10 Right to object to processing (scientific, historical research or statistics): You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
2.11 Right to data portability: To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is consent, 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.
2.12 Right to complain to the UK Information Commissioner: If you consider that our processing of your personal data infringes the applicable data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with the UK Information Commissioner (www.ico.org.uk) which is the UK data protection regulatory body.
2.13 Right to withdraw consent: To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
