2. What Does This Policy Cover?
3. What Is Personal Data?
In simple terms, personal information is any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
4. What Personal Data Do You Collect and How?
If you send me an email, I may collect your name, your email address, and any other information, which you choose to give me. For more details on why this is necessary see Part 5, below. For the purposes of the Data Protection Legislation, I am the person responsible for such data.
5. How Do You Use My Personal Data?
If you contact me and I obtain your personal details from your email, I use them to respond to your email. Any and all emails containing your personal data will be deleted no later than 48 hours after the subject matter of your e-mail has been resolved. I will comply with my obligations and safeguard your rights under the Data Protection Legislation at all times. For more details on security see Part 6, below.
6. How and Where Do You Store My Data?
I will only store your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the Data Protection Legislation. I am committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure I have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information I may store.
7. Do You Share My Personal Data?
I will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, subject to the following exceptions. In some limited circumstances, I may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if I am involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
8. What Are My Rights?
Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which I will always work to uphold:
b) The right to access the personal data I hold about you. Part 9 will tell you how to do this.
c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by me is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact me using the details in Part 10 to find out more.
d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask me to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that I hold. Please contact me using the details in Part 10 to find out more.
e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
f) The right to object to me using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
g) The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if I am relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.
h) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to me directly, I am using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask me for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
i) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. I do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about my use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact me using the details provided in Part 10.
It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the personal data I hold about you changes, please keep me informed as long as I have that data.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about my use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. I would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns myself, however, so please contact me first, using the details in Part 10.
9. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data I have about you, you can ask me for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”. All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 10. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover my administrative costs in responding. I will respond to your subject access request within 7 days of receiving it and aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date I receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of my progress.
10. How Do I Contact You?
