•             where you object to the processing and we don’t have any overriding legitimate interests to continuing processing the data;

•             where we have unlawfully processed your personal data (i.e. we have failed to comply with GDPR);

•             where the personal data has to be deleted to comply with a legal obligation; and

•             if we no longer need the data but you would like us to keep it because you need it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.

You are entitled to object to us processing your personal data:

•             if the processing is based on legitimate interests or performance of a task in the public interest or exercise of official authority;

•             for direct marketing purposes (including profiling); and/or

•             for the purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.

In order to object, you must have grounds for doing so based on your particular situation.

•             to personal data you provide to us;

•             where processing is based on your consent or for performance of a contract (i.e. the right does not apply if we process your personal data on the grounds of legitimate interests); and

•             where we carry out the processing by automated means.

We’ll respond to your request as soon as possible and in any event within one month from the date we receive it. If we need more time, we’ll let you know.
