15. Note for users in the European Union

Any reference to “personal information” in this Privacy Policy is a reference to personal data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”). If you are resident in the EU or UK, the GDPR gives you additional legal rights with regard to the processing of your personal data, which are explained below.

(a) Request access to your personal data: you have the right to access and receive a copy of your personal data to check that we are lawfully processing it. This is commonly referred to as a data subject access request.

(b) Request correction of your personal data: you have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified, or completed if it is incomplete. We may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

(c) Request erasure of your personal data: this enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

(d) Object to processing of your personal data: you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

(e) Request restriction of processing your personal data: you have the right to request restriction or suppression of your personal data. This is not an absolute right and only applies in certain circumstances:

(i) where you contest the accuracy of your personal data and we are verifying the accuracy of the data;

(ii) the data has been unlawfully processed and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead;

(iii) we no longer need the personal data but you need us to keep it in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or

(iv) you have objected to the processing of your personal data and we are considering whether our legitimate grounds override those put forward by you.

(f) Request transfer of your personal data: you can request the transfer of your personal data to yourself or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

(g) Right to withdraw consent: you can do this at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us via our customer service section.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

16. Contact us If you have any questions, or if you wish to contact us for any of the reasons described above, including to correct or access the information we hold about you or to make a complaint, please contact us via our customer service section.
