What is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
What Are My Rights?
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which [we] will always work to uphold:
- The right to access the personal data [we] hold about you. Part 13 will tell you how to do this.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by [us] is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact [us] using the details in Part 15 to find out more.
- The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask [us] to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that [we] Please contact [us] using the details in Part 15 to find out more.
- The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to [us] using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to [us] directly, [we are] using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask [us] for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
- Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. [We] do not use your personal data in this way.]
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about [our] use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
What Data Do We Collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
- Information that you provide to us such as your name, address, date of birth, telephone number, email address, bank account and payment card details and any feedback you give to us, including by phone, email, post, meetings or when you communicate with us via social media;

How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the GDPR, [we] must always have a lawful basis for using personal data.

How Can I Control My Personal Data?
- In addition to your rights under the GDPR, when you submit personal data via [our] Site, you may be given options to restrict [our] use of your personal data.

Can I Withhold Information?
How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data [we] have about you, you can ask [us] for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to email@example.com or our registered office address listed above.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover [our] administrative costs in responding.
[we] will respond to your subject access request within 30 days and, in any case, not more than] one month of receiving it. Normally, [we] aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time.

You will be kept fully informed of [our] progress.
