    This Privacy Information explains how we use your personal data: how it is collected, how it is held, and how it is processed. It also explains your rights under the law relating to your personal data.

  4. What Is Personal Data?
    1. Personal data is defined by the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
    2. Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
    3. The personal data that we use is set out in Clause 5, below.
  5. What Are My Rights?
    1. Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
      1. The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Clause 11.
      2. The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Clause 10 will tell you how to do this.
      3. The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Clause 12 to find out more.
      4. The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold. Please contact us using the details in Clause 12 to find out more.

      6. The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
      7. The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.
      8. The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
      9. Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. Clause 6 explains more about how we use your personal data, including automated decision-making and/or profiling.
    2. For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Clause 12.
    3. It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up to date. If any of the personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.
    4. Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
    5. If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first, using the details in Clause 12.

      2. procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s Office where we are legally required to do so;
  10. Do You Share My Personal Data?
    1. We may sometimes contract with other third parties to supply services to you on our behalf, such as sub-contractors, and in some cases, these third parties may require access to some or all of your data.

  11. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
    1. If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
    2. All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Clause 12.
    3. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
    4. We will respond to your subject access request within 5 working days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time.
