- Defining Personal Data
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable natural person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is therefore 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 that can be linked to your personal information.
- Individual’s Rights Under GDPR
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which We will always work to uphold and seek to respect:
- The right to access the personal data We hold about you. Clause 13 will tell you how to do this.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by Us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact Us using the details in Clause 15 to find out more.
- The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask Us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that We have. Please contact Us using the details in Clause 15 to find out more.
- The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to Us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to Us directly and We are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask Us for a copy of that personal data.
- We do not use your personal data for automated profiling and decision making.
For more information about Our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact Us using the details provided in Clause 15.

You may access certain areas of Our Site without providing any personal data at all. However, to use certain features and functions available on Our Site you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.
- Finding Out About the Personal Data We Hold
If you want to know what personal data We have about you, you can ask Us 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 address shown in Clause 15. There is no specific form or layout that you need to use to make such request. All that is required is that the request should be in writing and the wording should make it clear that you are making a request about the personal information We hold on you.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. However, if your request is ‘excessive or manifestly unfounded’ (for example, if you make repeated requests) a fee may be charged to cover Our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within 21 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, We 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 We receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of Our progress in such cases.
