Your rights regarding your personal information
You have several rights regarding the processing of your personal data. You have the right:
- To withdraw consent: If you have consented to receive email alerts from us or have engaged in any other activity with us for which we have asked you for your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. In respect of the investor email alerts, you can withdraw your consent by using the “Unsubscribe” option in the email or on our website on the “Email Alert” page of the “Investors” section, or you can contact us on email@example.com to notify us of any withdrawal of consent.
- Of access to your personal data: You have a legal right to see a copy of the personal data that we keep about you, subject to certain exemptions.
- To rectify inaccurate or incomplete personal data: You can ask us to correct any data which is inaccurate or incomplete.
- Of erasure of your personal data: you can ask us to delete your personal information (with the exception of us being required to keep it to comply with a legal obligation).
- To restrict processing of your personal data: We will retain enough information to enable the restriction but will not process any further personal data, until and unless we lift the restriction (of which you will be informed).
- To object to processing of your personal data: you can stop or prevent us from using your data (in cases where we are using it with your consent or for our legitimate interests).
- To move, copy or transfer your personal data (data portability): Please contact us if you would like us to transfer your personal data electronically to another organisation.
Please note that the above mentioned rights, with the exception of the right to withdraw your consent (in general) and to object to processing of your personal data (for the purpose of email alerts), are not absolute. Under certain conditions, we may refuse to comply with your request to exercise the above mentioned rights. If we refuse your request, you will be informed of the reasons for refusal.
In accordance with applicable data protection legislation, we follow security procedures when we process your personal data. We may therefore request proof of your identity before disclosing certain information to you or acting on any rights requests.
We will respond to your rights request within one calendar month of receipt of all documents required to fulfil your request (for example valid ID). In cases where the request is complex or if you make several requests, we may require up to two additional months but we will ensure that we will inform you of this within the first month of a validly received rights request.
What if you do not want to provide us with your personal information?
Where you are given the option to share your personal information with us, you can always choose not to do so.
If you object to the processing of your personal information, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations. This could mean that you may be unable to make use of the services and products offered by us.
You always have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) if you have any concerns with regard to the way in which we process your personal data. Their contact details can be found on their website www.ico.org.uk or by telephone: 0303 123 1113. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
