Time limit to respond

We will consider all such requests and, in accordance with the applicable laws, and aim to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. We may also rely on certain exemptions to complying with your requests in certain circumstances, for example if we need to keep using the information to comply with our own legal obligations or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.  If an exemption applies, we will notify you when responding to your request.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity 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 person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

The right to be informed

You have the right to obtain clear, transparent, and easily understandable information about how we use your personal data, and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Statement.

You have right to request that we delete your data if:

a) your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which we collected it; or

d) the personal data is not being processed lawfully; or

e) your personal data needs to be deleted to comply with the law.

If you wish to delete the personal data we hold about you, please let us know and we will take reasonable steps to respond to your request in accordance with legal and NHS requirements.

The right to restriction of processing

Under certain circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data if:

a) you do not believe the personal data we have about you is accurate, or

b) you consider that the personal data is not being processed lawfully, but instead of deleting the personal data, you would prefer us to restrict processing instead, or

c) we no longer need your personal data for the purposes we collected it, but you require the data in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or

d) you have objected to the processing of your personal data and are awaiting verification on whether your interests related to that objection outweigh the legitimate grounds for processing your data.

The right to object

Under certain circumstances, you have the right to object to certain types of processing based on grounds relating to your particular situation when such processing is based on our or another's legitimate interest. If you exercise this right, we will stop using your personal data for this purpose, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing your personal data that would outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing activities (for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in our emails).

Lawful basis

Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.

Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.

Comply with a legal obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.

Automated decision making

Automated decision making and profiling essentially means that decisions are taken automatically without human intervention. We will not make decisions based solely on automated decision making to the extent that they have a legal effect or significant impact on you without first notifying you and providing you with clear information about any such automated decision-making, including our lawful basis for carrying it out and the ability to have a human intervention for reviewing the decision.
