Data protection and your rights
To ask us to restrict processing of your personal data
In certain circumstances, you have the right to restrict the processing we carry out with your personal data (known as the Right to Restrict Processing).
- where we are considering your arguments if you are:
- contesting the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you; or
- objecting to our processing of your personal data;
- if it has already been determined the processing is 'unlawful' but you ask us to keep the personal data and 'restrict' its use;
- when we no longer need to retain your personal data but you ask us to keep it to make your own legal claim.
We will carefully consider your request, and our response will outline whether or not we agree to restrict processing of your personal data.
If we agree to your request, we will:
- try to notify any recipients and let you know who they are (if you ask us to do so);
- let you know the outcome of your argument and notify you prior to lifting a restriction, if the restriction is relating to accuracy or an objection;
- delete the personal data only after resolving the issue(s), if the restriction is relating to unlawful processing or a legal claim.
In addition to storing your personal data we will only process it during the period of restriction:
- with your consent; or
- where it is required in relation to legal claims;
- where it is required to protect another individual's rights; or
- where it is required for reasons of important public interest, e.g. communicating with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
