If we do use your personal information on an automated basis to make decisions which significantly affect you, you have the right to ask for the decision to be reviewed by an individual to whom you may make representations and contest the decision.

We do not envisage that any decisions will be taken about you using automated means, however we will notify you in writing if this position changes.

4. Object to processingof your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation, which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.

You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

5. Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you if:

6. Request the transferof your personal information to another party.
