Using personal information
As part of our day to day business we may use your personal data to:
1. Send you communications
2. Send you offer leaflets and other marketing communications related to our business
We will not provide your personal information to any third parties for any other purpose. You can elect to no longer receive communications from us at any time.
Your data protection rights
You have the right to review and access your personal data information held by us. You also have the right to correct, block of delete your personal data, or to ‘port’ your data to another organisation.
You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information. This is called making a “subject access request”. You can make a subject access request to us at any time and this will be handled by our Data Champion.
When making a subject access request, please include the following information:
1. Your name and contact details

The information requested will be supplied following supply of appropriate evidence of your identity.
There are exceptions to these rights. For example, access to personal information may be denied in some circumstances if making the information available would reveal personal information about another person or if we are legally prevented from disclosing such information.
