Your data and your right to access Personal Information

It’s very important to us that you feel comfortable with the way in which your data is used and stored by us.

You have the right, under the GDPR, to:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request a correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information, ensuring your ‘right to be forgotten’. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information 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 information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below). You should be aware that, for legal reasons, we may be unable to erase certain information.
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you would like to make a request, please contact us as info@cortonplants.co.uk and we will endeavour to answer and deal with your request as speedily as possible. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information. However, we may have to charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is deemed unfounded or excessive.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is vitally important to us. All users of the internet should feel safe in accessing and sharing information online and so ensuring that we store your information safely and responsibly is of high priority to us.

However we all need to understand that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We have set up a series of safeguards and complied with current regulations to protect your Personal Information, but we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In the event of a breach of security we pledge to notify you within three days of its discovery with a plan of action to help you to take any necessary steps if your data has been compromised.

Communicating with you

We promise that we will only use your Personal Information to contact you with emails, newsletters and information which is of legitimate interest to you.

Cookies

Cookies are files with small amounts of data which are generated when you click on a site or specific pages in a site. The data gathered may include what is known as an anonymous unique identifier. The identifier identifies the action taken, not you, which is why they are called anonymous.

The cookies we use are sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. This information is used by your browser to remember the pages you have visited so that when you return to the site you can do this more quickly and efficiently. To see which cookies we use and how they may affect you, view above our cookie policy.
