What rights do you have over your Personal Information?
Under GDPR, individuals have by far greater ownership of the way in which they are able to manage their own personal information. There are now eight areas in which you have rights, known as the Data Subject Rights and they are broken down as follows;
Right to Access/Subject Access Requests – The Right to Access provides you with the opportunity to obtain all the information The Harford Group Limited hold about you as an individual (also known as Subject Access Requests). The GDPR allows The Harford Group Limited one month to provide you with all the information we hold about you, your vehicle and your address. This will solely be in relation to the person making the request. We will review all our manual and electronic data and provide you with everything accordingly. If your request specifies what documentation you require, this will assist us in responding to your request more quickly.
Right of Rectification – If you believe that the information that The Harford Group Limited hold about yourself is incorrect, inaccurate or incomplete, the right of rectification ensures that you can contact us and we will update it accordingly. We will provide you with confirmation once the update has taken place.
Right to Erasure – Under GDPR, you have the option for all records of your personal information held by The Harford Group Limited to be erased. There are however a number of exemptions to this right, given that we may have legal or contractual rights to retain your person information.
Right to Data Portability - GDPR provides you with the opportunity for your personal information to be provided back to you in a portable format. This means that you can transfer your data to a different provider without the need for you to provide it again to them.
Right to Withdraw Consent – The Harford Group Limted would like to give you the opportunity to manage the way in which we communicate with you.
