We will retain your personal data for different periods depending upon the service you have asked us to provide, which may be a longer period than that for which we need to hold your data to provide those services e.g., where we are under regulatory or statutory duties to hold your data for a longer period or need to retain it in the event of a legal claim or complaint.
Your data will be stored electronically with all reasonable technological and operational measures put in place to safeguard it from unauthorised access and any identifiable information will be encrypted or minimised. Where necessary your data will be stored securely, in hard copy format, within our premises. Access to this data is limited to relevant personnel of Mortgage Decisions.
You have a right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you, known as a data subject access request. You also have the right to request that information we hold about you which may be incorrect, or which has been changed since you first told us, is updated or removed. These requests are free of charge and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please send your request by post to our Head Office premises, 13 Oakmount Road, Chandlers Ford SO53 2LG. We will respond to any such request within one calendar month, subject to us receiving satisfactory identification. The right to access personal information may be limited in some circumstances by local law requirements.
You can ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where you have withdrawn consent for us to process it (as explained below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
You have the right at any time to withdraw any consent you have given us to process your personal data. Please note if you withdraw your consent it will not affect the lawfulness of any processing of your personal data we have carried out before you withdrew your consent. Should you wish to do so you can change your consent preferences at any time by emailing email@example.com.
You can ask us to suspend the way in which we are using your information in certain scenarios, or object to our processing your data where we are relying on a legitimate interest ground (or those of a third party) and you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms, or where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases where you object, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Please note that if you want us to restrict or stop processing your data this may impact on our ability to provide our services. Depending on the extent of your request we may be unable to continue providing you with our service.
If you have any queries or concerns about the way in which your data is being used please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event that we process your data by automated means where you have either provided us with consent for us to use your information or where we used the information to perform a contract with you, you have the right to request that we send to you or to another organisation, a copy of the personal data we hold about you, for example when you are dealing with a different service provider. If you would like us to move, copy, or transfer your information please let us know by email to email@example.com. We will respond to you within one month after assessing whether or not this is possible, taking into account the technical compatibility with the other organisation in question.
If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact us to have the matter investigated by writing to our Head Office premises; 13 Oakmount Road, Chandlers Ford SO53 2LG or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
