Data subject's rights

You have certain rights in relation to personal data we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. We will require evidence of your identity before we are able to act on your request.

Right of Access

You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of your personal data that we hold.  Where we have good reason, and if the GDPR law permits, we can refuse your request for a copy of your personal data, or certain elements of the request (for example, if we would also be disclosing third party personal data). If we refuse your request or any element of it, we will provide you with our reasons for doing so.

Right of Correction or Completion

If personal data we hold about you is not accurate, out of date or incomplete, you have a right to have the data rectified, updated or completed. Therefore, please advise us of any changes to your information.

Right of Erasure

In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that personal data we hold about you is erased e.g., if the information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or our processing of the information is based on your consent (which you wish to withdraw) and there are no other legal grounds on which we may process the information.
Right to object to or restrict processing

In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data by contacting us.

Specifically, please note that you have the right to object:

(a) at any time to Save Jesmond Wood's use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes; and

(b) to Save Jesmond Wood processing of your personal data where it is based on our legitimate interests, unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to process the information, or we need to do so in relation to legal claims.
You may also have the right to restrict our use of your personal data, such as in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of the information and during the period where we are verifying its accuracy.

Right of Data Portability

In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal data that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. 

You can ask us to transmit that information to you or directly to a third-party organization. 

The above right exists only in respect of personal data that:

• you have provided to us previously; and

• is processed by us using automated means.

While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organization’s systems. Also, we may be unable to comply with requests that relate to personal data of others without their consent.  

You can exercise any of the above rights by contacting us using any of the methods in the Contact section at the bottom of this page.

Most of the above rights are subject to limitations and exceptions. We will provide reasons if we are unable to comply with any request for the exercise of your rights.
