What are my rights in relation to the personal data that you hold?

Your rights are embodied in the contract formed between us when you visit the website (as subsequently augmented when submitting your personal information and, if we call you, when speaking on the phone) and as contained in the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – also known as GDPR.

The GDPR provides individuals with the rights in relation to personal information about themselves which is held by us as summarised in the table below.

Some of the rights are unlikely to be of practical use. For example, if you wish for a copy or correction or cessation of use of some or all of your personal data we, our suppliers and our other introducing companies are likely already to have eradicated it from our or their system given the short periods your date is retained and its limited use.

Nevertheless the GDPR principle of transparency in particular provides you with the right to enquire and to be informed and we briefly set out all of the rights here. Further information about the rights and the circumstances in which they apply may be obtained from a number of published sources and from our fact sheets which are available on request.
