This policy applies to all personal data, electronic or otherwise, and complies with the lawful basis of processing requirements under GDPR.
Personal data will only remain in our possession for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected the data.
All personal data will be deleted once our consultation is complete unless specified by yourself to remain on our mailing list.
We will only collect minimal personal data to allow us to complete our consultation. Any sensitive data will be destroyed immediately.
We will only collect your personal data directly from you and never pass your details to anyone else.
We make every effort to protect our database against loss, theft, unauthorised access, disclosure, copying or modification.
The General Data Protection Regulation provides certain rights for individuals. Please note that you may only use/benefit from these in defined circumstances.
You can check the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website or contact us for more information. We are committed to upholding these rights, which are as follows.
Request access to your personal data
You have a right to request a copy of the personal data held by us about you. Please use the contact details at the end of this policy if you want to exercise this right.
Request correction of your personal data
You have the right to request that we correct the personal data we hold about you, although we may verify the accuracy of the new information you provide to us.
Request 'erasure' of your personal data (The right to be forgotten)
You have the right to request that we delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it.
Object to processing of your personal data
You have the right to object to processing your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest, and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on the grounds that it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms.
Right to withdraw consent
In circumstances where we rely on your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing before you withdraw your consent.
If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide services to you. We will advise you if this is the case when you withdraw your consent.
Right to data portability
In certain circumstances, we will provide your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format to you or a third party you have chosen.
Please note that this right only applies to automated data which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the data to form a contract with you.
