6. Your rights
You have a number of rights under the General Data Protection Regulation:
Finding out about your data ‐ ‘The Right of Access’
PROTECT does not take your data and hide it away. You have a right to find out about what we are doing with it, check we’re holding it correctly and to obtain a copy of what we hold. We will provide this, where possible, through direct access to the data, either electronically or in person. Alternatively, we will provide electronic or paper copies.
You only have the right to access your data. If your data contains references to other people’s information, we may have to withhold some parts of your response to protect the privacy of others.

PROTECT makes every effort to ensure its data is accurate. If you think something we hold about you is wrong, you can ask for this to be corrected. PROTECT will assess your request and correct any inaccuracy.
Remove – You have the right to ask us to remove or delete data we hold on you.
PROTECT will assess your request and, if the following applies, will delete your data:
It’s no longer needed for what it was collected for
If you opted in to provide us with your data and now you would like to opt‐out
If think what we have done with your data is unlawful

If this information has to be deleted to comply with the law
PROTECT will not delete your data if any of the following applies:

We will let you know who these third parties are.
PROTECT will take every reasonable step to fulfill your request. If, however, coordinating the correction, erasure or restriction of your data with third parties is impossible or requires disproportionate effort then we are not obliged to do so.
Taking your data with you – ‘The right to data portability’
You have the right to ask PROTECT to provide you with a re‐usable electronic copy of your data to allow you to transfer to another provider. You can do this where the data has been provided to us where you have opted‐in or where you have provided data to as part of a contractual agreement.

PROTECT may refuse to transfer the data if:
If it’s not technically possible to transfer to another organization
