To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
If you would like to know more about the retention periods we apply to your personal data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. We will keep your personal information for as long as you are our customer.
We may use your personal information to tell you about relevant goods and any upcoming offers. We can only use your personal information to send you marketing messages if we have either your consent or a legitimate interest to do so.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time – you just need to contact us, or use the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you. We will not share your personal data with any third party for its marketing purposes.
Where you opt out of receiving marketing messages from us, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of purchasing our goods or services or any other transaction between you and us.
12. Your rights
You have certain rights which are set out in the law relating to your personal information. The most important rights are set out below.
Getting a copy of the information we hold
You can ask us for a copy of the personal information which we hold about you, by writing to us at email@example.com. This is known as a data subject access request.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data, unless we believe that your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. In such circumstances we can charge a reasonable fee or refuse to comply with your request.
We will try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month and in that case we will notify you and keep you updated.
Telling us if information we hold is incorrect
You have the right to question any information we hold about you that you think is wrong or incomplete. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to do this and we will take reasonable steps to check its accuracy and, if necessary, correct it.
Telling us if you want us to stop using your personal information
You have the right to:
object to our use of your personal information (known as the right to object); or
ask us to delete the personal information (known as the right to erasure); or
request the restriction of processing; or
ask us to stop using it if there is no need for us to use it (known as the right to be forgotten).
There may be legal reasons why we need to keep or use your data, which we will tell you if you exercise one of the above rights.
Where we rely on our legitimate interest
In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.
You can withdraw your consent to us using your personal information at any time. Please contact us at if you want to withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you with certain products or services.
Request a transfer of data
You may ask us to transfer your personal information to a third party. 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.
13. Making a complaint
Please let us know if you are unhappy with how we have used your personal information by contacting us at email@example.com.
You also have a right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office. You can find their contact details at www.ico.org.uk. We would be grateful for the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
