We have also put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long will you use my personal data for?

We will keep your personal data only for so long as is necessary and for the purpose for which it was originally collected, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, accounting or reporting requirements.


In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data: see Section 8 (Your Legal Rights and Contact Details of the ICO) below.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

We may need to transfer your data to our affiliates or sub-contractors which are located outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Those transfers would always be made in compliance with the GDPR.

If you would like further details of how your personal data would be protected if transferred outside the EEA, please contact our Data Protection Manager.

  • provide you with a copy of the personal data that you have provided to us;

  • update any inaccuracies in the personal data we hold;

  • delete any special category of personal data/personal data that we no longer have a lawful ground to use;

No fee usually required


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 may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.


What we may need from you


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.


Time limit to respond


We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may 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.


Your Right to Complain to the ICO


If you are not satisfied with our use of your personal data or our response to any request by you to exercise any of your rights in Section 8: Your Rights and Contact Details of the ICO, or if you think that we have breached the GDPR, then you have the right to complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues.

We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
