You can ask us for a copy of our retention periods by contacting Joe@ukbusinessmentoring.co.uk.
The law gives you a number of rights to control what personal information is used by us and how it is used by us.
You can ask for access to the information we hold on you
You have the right to ask for the information we have about you. When we receive a request from you, we must give you access to what personal information we’ve recorded about you.
However, we can’t let you see any parts of a record which contain:
- Confidential information about other people; or
- May be held in preparation to defend legal claims
This applies to personal information that is in both paper and electronic records. If you ask us, we’ll also let others see your record (except if one of the points above applies).
A request for personal information can be made via email. This is known as a subject access request. In order to make a subject access request you will need to provide the following information:
- your name
- your email address
- enough information to identify your records
We will not start your subject access request until we are satisfied that you have provided us with enough information for us to identify you.
Once you have made a request you will receive an acknowledgement and your request should be answered within one month. In certain circumstances, we are allowed to take longer but we will tell you if we feel we may need longer without undue delay from when we receive your request.
If you have any queries about access to your information please contact us.
You can ask to change information you think is inaccurate.
You should let us know if you disagree with something we may have recorded about you.
We may not always be able to change or remove that information but we’ll correct factual inaccuracies and may include your comments in the record to show that you disagree with it.
Please email email@example.com to inform us of any inaccuracies.
You can ask to delete information (right to erasure).
In some circumstances you can ask for your personal information to be deleted, for example:
- Where your personal information is no longer needed for the reason why it was collected in the first place
- Where you have removed your consent for us to use your information (where there is no other legal reason us to use it)
- Where there is no legal reason for the use of your information
- Where deleting the information is a legal required
Where your personal information has been shared with others, we’ll do what we can to make sure those using your personal information comply with your request for erasure.
You can ask to limit what we use your personal data for.
You have the right to ask us to restrict what we use your personal information for where:
- you have identified inaccurate personal information, and have told us of it
- where we have no legal reason to use that information but you want us to restrict what we use it for rather than erase the information altogether
We will assess whether you have a right to a restriction and where restriction of use has been granted, we’ll inform you before we carry on using your personal information.
Where possible we’ll seek to comply with your request, but we may need to hold or use information because we are required to by law or we have a legal basis to do so, such as a contract.
How to tell us of a data breach
UK Business Mentoring Group takes responsibility to protect the personal information we hold about those with whom we work seriously. We are accountable for our processing and take necessary technical and operational steps to information security protections.
If you suspect your personal information or that of others may have been at risk of a data protection breach please tell us.
