Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights.

8.2   Your principal rights under data protection law are:

(a)   the right to access;

(b)   the right to rectification;

(c)    the right to erasure;

(d)   the right to restrict processing;

(e)   the right to object to processing;

(f)    the right to data portability;

(g)   the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and

(h)   the right to withdraw consent.

8.3   You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data.

However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

8.6 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
