🇬🇧 & 🇪🇺  What are your rights?

Your personal data is yours and you have rights in relation to it granted by the UK GDPR, which include:

📮  The right to be informed

You have the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data, the purposes for processing, retention periods for that personal data and who it will be shared with. We have set this information out in this privacy notice.

🗝️  The right of access

You have the right to ask us for copies of the data we hold about you. If you ask us, we’ll confirm whether we’re processing your personal information and, if so, provide you with a copy of that personal information (along with certain other details).

⛔  The right to object

You have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal information in some circumstances, such as when we are relying on our own (or someone else’s) legitimate interests to process your personal information, when we are processing your personal information for direct marketing or when we are processing your personal information for research.

📝  The right to rectification

You have the right to ask us to rectify the personal information you think is inaccurate or to complete information you think is incomplete. When you ask us to rectify your information, if we’ve shared your personal information with others, we’ll let them know about the rectification where possible.

🧽  The right to erasure

You have the right to ask us to erase your personal information, in some circumstances, such as where we no longer need it or you withdraw your consent (where applicable).

🚫  The right to restrict processing

You have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your personal information for a period of time in some circumstances, such as where you contest the accuracy of that personal information or object to us processing it. This right is separate from the right to object and will only stop us from using your personal information further, not from processing it. If we’ve shared your personal information with others, we’ll let them know about the restriction where possible.

✈️  The right to data portability

You have the right to ask that we transfer the personal information you gave us to another organisation, or to someone else, in some circumstances.You don't have to pay anything in order to exercise your rights.

Please contact us by sending an email to privacy@valvespace.com if you wish to make a request under your rights; we have a calendar month to get back to you with a response.
