You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK

CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY NOTICE AND YOUR DUTY TO INFORM US OF CHANGES
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your
personal data changes during your relationship with us.
This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling
those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party
websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to
read the privacy notice of every website you visit.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it
by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
• We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of
protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission:
Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.
• Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European
Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European
Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries.
• Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield
which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your
personal data out of the EEA.
EXTERNAL THIRD PARTIES

• Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based in the United Kingdom who

• HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities based in the United Kingdom who require reporting

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you
to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or
inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you
provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where
there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your
personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may
have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with
local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal
reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third
party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this
ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we
are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have
compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing
of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our
use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no
longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of
your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you
have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right
only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the
information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this
will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your
consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at
the time you withdraw your consent.
