  • where there is no legal basis for further processing; or

  • if the accuracy of the personal data is being contested, or

  • if the personal data is no longer needed for the purpose of the processing but you need us to hold the data as it is required by you to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
  • if you have objected to the processing, pending verification of that objection

However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before your request and that we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you pursuant to your request for Service or under the existing contract you have with us. We will advise you if this is the case at the time of your request to restrict or suspend the processing of certain aspects of your personal data.

(f) Request transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

(g) Right to withdraw consent where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

1.2 Where possible we will seek to comply with your request but we may be required to hold or process information to comply with a legal requirement.
