In certain circumstances, you may be able request that we erase some or all of your personal data. You may also be able to request that we restrict our processing of your data (this means that we will continue to store your data, but we won’t use it for anything).

In most cases, there will be no fee charged for making a request to us. We will act on requests received without undue delay and in any event within one month of receiving it. If your request is complex, or you have made a number of requests to us, we may extend our response time by up to two months. We will inform you within one month of receiving your original request if this applies. We might need to ask you to prove your identity to us before we start to respond to your request.
