access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data that we
hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- request correction of your 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 laws. Please 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
- 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.

to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
- If you want us to establish the data's accuracy.

you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- request 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. Please 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 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.

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

information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
