RIGHTS OF ACCESS TO PERSONAL DATA (“SUBJECT ACCESS REQUEST”)
Individuals have the right under the Act to access personal data about them held by the Company, subject to certain exemptions and limitations set out in the Act. Any individual wishing to access their personal data should email their request to the DPO [email protected]
The Company will endeavour to respond to any such written requests (known as “subject access requests”) as soon as is reasonably practicable and in any event within statutory time-limits.
You should be aware that certain data is exempt from the right of access under the Act. This may include information which identifies other individuals, or information which is subject to legal professional privilege. The Company is also not required to disclose any reference given by the Company for the purposes of the education, training or employment of any individual.
The Rights under the Act belong to the individual to whom the data relates. However, the Company will in most cases rely on parental consent to process personal data relating to children (if consent is required under the Act) unless, given the nature of the processing in question, and the child’s age and understanding, it is more appropriate to rely on the child’s consent. Parents should be aware that in such situations they may not be consulted.
In general, the Company will assume that children’s consent to disclosure of their personal data to their parents, e.g. for the purposes of keeping parents informed about the child’s activities, progress and behaviour, and in the interests of the child’s welfare, unless, in the opinion of the Company, there is a good reason to do otherwise.
However, where a child seeks to raise concerns confidentially with a member of staff and expressly withholds their agreement to their personal data being disclosed to their parents, the Company will maintain confidentiality unless, in the opinion of the Company, there is a good reason to do otherwise; for example where the Company believes disclosure will be in the best interests of the child or other children.
Clients, customers and staff are required to respect the personal data and privacy of others, and to comply with the Company policies and the Company rules.
DATA ACCURACY AND SECURITY
The Company will endeavour to ensure that all personal data held in relation to an individual is as up to date and accurate as possible. Individuals must notify the DPO of any changes to information held about them.
An individual has the right to request that inaccurate information about them is erased or corrected (subject to certain exemptions and limitations under the Act) and may do so by contacting the DPO by email at [email protected]
The Company will take appropriate technical and organisational steps to ensure the security of personal data about individuals. All staff will be made aware of this policy and their duties under the Act.
