7. What are your rights?
You have a number of legal rights over your personal information. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the relevant data protection regulator for your country.
1. The right to object to processing
You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).
2. The right to be informed
You have the right to be given clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how your information is used.
3. The right of access
4. The right to rectification
You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
5. The right to erasure
Also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’, in simple terms, and subject to some exceptions, this enables you to ask for the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep it.
6. The right to restrict processing
You have the right to block or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.
7. The right to data portability
You have the right to obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes across different services.
8. The right to lodge a complaint
You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process personal information with your national data protection regulator.
9. The right to withdraw consent
If you have given your consent to our use of personal information, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:
- baseless or excessive/repeated requests
- or further copies of the same information.
Alternatively, we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.
Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within 28 days from receiving your request, but if the request is going to take longer to deal with then we’ll let you know.
How will we contact you?
We may contact you by phone, email or social media. If you prefer a particular contact method, just let us know.
