The security of your Personal Information is important to us.

Once we have received your Personal Information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Your principal rights under data protection law are:
(a) the right to access;
(b) the right to rectification;
(c) the right to erasure;
(d) the right to restrict processing;
(e) the right to object to processing;
(f) the right to data portability;
(g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
(h) the right to withdraw consent.
Some of these rights are subject to exclusions.
Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply you with a copy of your Personal Information. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
The right to erasure of your Personal Information without undue delay may be exercised where the data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed or where you withdraw consent to consent-based processing. This is excluded where processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information or for compliance with a legal obligation.
The right to restrict the processing of your Personal Information may be exercised where you contest the accuracy or where we no longer need it for the purposes of our processing. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your Personal Information. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
The right to object to our processing of your Personal Information may be exercised to the extent that the legal basis for processing is necessary, such as for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, in the exercise of any official authority vested in us or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the Personal Information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing which overrides your interests, rights and freedoms, or processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
You have the right to object to our processing of your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes. If you make this objection, we will cease to process your Personal Information for this purpose.
If you consider that our processing of your Personal Information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your Personal Information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, you may request to do so at any time by writing to us at the address in the Contact section of this page.
