Your duty to inform us of changes


It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Should your personal information change, please notify us of any changes of which we need to be made aware by contacting us, using the contact details below.  


Your rights in connection with personal data


Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
• Request access to your personal data. This enables you to receive details of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully.
• Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you.  
• Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove
personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
• Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest
(or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this basis. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.  
• Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us
to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
• Request  the  transfer  of  your  personal  data  to  you  or  another  data  controller  if  the processing is based on consent, carried out by automated means and this is technically feasible.


If  you  want  to  exercise  any  of  the  above  rights,  please  email  Bernard  Joseph  at:
admin@josephgroup.co.uk


You will not have to pay a fee  to access your personal  data (or to exercise any of the other rights).  However,  we  may  charge  a  reasonable  fee  if  your  request  for  access  is  clearly unfounded  or  excessive.  Alternatively,  we  may  refuse  to  comply  with  the  request  in  such circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.


10.   RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT


In  the  limited  circumstances  where  you  may  have  provided  your  consent  to  the  collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose (for example, in relation to direct marketing that you have indicated you would like to receive from us), you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.

 

To withdraw your consent, please email Bernard Joseph at: admin@josephgroup.co.uk.

 

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your personal information (personal data) for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
