    1. In this Section 8, we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the

      should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of
      these rights.
    2. Your principal rights under data protection law are:

      2. the right to rectification;
      3. the right to erasure;
      4. the right to restrict processing;
      5. the right to object to processing;

      circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose

      processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the
      exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by
      us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal
      information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override
      your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of
      legal claims.

        structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where
        it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

      have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
      You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the
      alleged infringement.

      the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing
      before the withdrawal.
