Individual’s rights and how to exercise them
Individuals have certain rights over their personal data and data controllers are responsible for fulfilling these rights. Where we decide how and why personal data is processed, we are a data controller and include further information about the rights that individuals have and how to exercise them below.
(i) Access to personal data
You have a right of access to personal data held by us as a data controller. This right may be exercised by contacting us using the options below.

We will aim to respond to any requests for information promptly and in any event within the legally required time limits (currently 30 days).
(ii) Amendment of personal data

(iii) Withdrawal of consent
Where we process personal data based on consent, individuals have a right to withdraw consent at any time. We do not generally process personal data based on consent (as we can usually rely on another legal basis). Should visitors subsequently choose to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any registrations, we will provide instructions, on the appropriate webpage or in communications to our visitors.
(iv) Additional Rights
You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data under the following circumstances and we shall endeavour to accommodate such request whenever feasible:
•Where your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the specific purpose for which it was originally collected;
•Where your consent is withdrawn (if such consent was used as a legal basis);
•Where you object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing;
•Where such erasure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation.
You have the right to restrict processing. In the event that you choose to exercise this right, and provided that such request may not be overridden on legitimate grounds, we shall retain your data but restrict processing.
You have a right to data portability allowing you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services.
Based on your right to object you have the right to object to processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest and direct marketing.
The personal data you submit to us will only be retained for as long as is required for the purposes for which it was collected and as required by applicable law, our internal policies, our contractual relationship with you (if applicable) and the legitimate interests of the parties as more specifically stated in the specific processing activities.
