  2. The right of access to the personal data which We hold. In most cases this will be free of charge and must be provided within one month of receipt. To obtain a copy of the personal data We hold on you, please write to Us and provide Us with your details or email grp-uk-data_protect@gravitymedia.com.

  3. The right to rectification where data is inaccurate or incomplete. In such cases We shall make any amendments or additions within one month of your request.
  4. The right to erasure of personal data, which can arise, for example if you withdraw your consent to process your personal data and there is no other legitimate reason for continuing to process that personal data. Other specific circumstances include where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was originally collected or processed,  or when you object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
  5. The right to restrict processing. You can ask Us to temporarily limit the use of your personal data whilst We are considering: a challenge which you have made to the accuracy of your personal data; or an objection which you have made to the use of your personal data. You can also ask Us to limit the use of your personal data rather than delete it, if: We processed your personal data unlawfully but you do not want it deleted; or We no longer need your personal data but you want Us to keep it in order to create, exercise or defend legal claims.
  6. The right to data portability only applies to information which you have given Us. You have the right to ask that We transfer the information which you gave Us from one organisation to another, or give it to you. The right only applies if We are processing your personal data based on your consent or under, or in talks about entering into a contract and the processing is automated.
