|What does this mean?
|The right to object to processing
|You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).
|The right to be informed
|You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Privacy Notice.
|The right of access
|You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we’re processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Notice). This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection law.
|The right to rectification
|You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.
|The right to erasure
|This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.
|The right to restrict processing
|You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further.
