What is GDPR?
Effective from 25th May 2018 General Data Protection Regulation known as GDPR replaced the previous EU Data Protection Act. GDPR covers personal data that relates to individual persons. GDPR states that personal data should be processed ‘fairly and lawfully’ and ‘collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes’.
GDPR states that individuals have 7 rights in respect of their personal data including the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data, and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent.
You can see more about these rights at: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive or refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
At any point an individual can submit a request for their data and getme2oz.com will be required to provide a response within 28 days. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you. Getme2oz.com has the right to refuse a request, but we will inform the person concerned of the reasons for the rejection. The individual will then have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office if they are not happy with the outcome of their request We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have a complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.
Accessing and updating your personal information
As stated above you have the right to request a copy of the data getme2oz.com holds as well as to request changes to your data if you believe it is incorrect.
