We guarantee data subjects all their rights under the Data Protection Act. In particular, data subjects have the following rights:

  • Information: Data subjects may request information about whether we process their personal data and, if so, about the personal data in question.

We may suspend, limit or refuse the exercise of data subjects’ rights to the extent permitted by law. We may draw the attention of data subjects to any requirements that must be met in order to exercise their rights under the Data Protection Act.
