Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the

- If you want us to establish the data’s accuracy.
- Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
- Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party
you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that
this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where
we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However,
this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you
withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise
you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
