The right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information.
You can only exercise this right under the following conditions:
- if you contest the accuracy of your personal data you can request we don't process your data until we have verified the accuracy of it
- if you think your data has been unlawfully processed, and you oppose erasure, you can request we restrict processing
- if we no longer need your personal data, but you need us to keep it in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim
- if you have objected to us processing your data and we are considering whether our legitimate grounds override those of yours
You can either fill out this form, email email@example.com or speak to any member of staff on the telephone or in person. Once you have made contact we will mark your records as restricted, tell any third party who processes your data on our behalf, and notify you within one calendar month.
Your right to restrict processing can be used in conjunction with other rights (such a rectification and objection).
Under some circumstances we have the right to refuse your request, but if we do that we will give you a reason and you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office if you do not agree.
In most cases the restriction would only be temporary, but we are required to notify you before we lift the restriction and why we are lifting it, but you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioners Office if you do not agree.
