In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest (for example where data has been retained to resolve a service complaint), you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation.
We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.
If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.
To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice.
