Your right to object
The UK General Data Protection Regulation gives you the right to object to the processing of your personal data. This effectively allows you to ask us to stop processing your personal data.
The right to object only applies in certain circumstances. Whether it applies depends on our purposes and lawful basis for processing.
When does the right to object apply?
You have the absolute right to object to the processing of your personal data if it is for direct marketing purposes.
You can also object if the processing is for:
- a task carried out in the public interest, or the exercise of official authority vested in us. This is called a ‘public task’
- our legitimate interests or those of a third party
In these circumstances the right to object is not absolute. If we are processing data for scientific or historical research, or statistical purposes, the right to object is more limited.
