The lawful bases for processing are set out in Article 6 of the UK GDPR. At least one of these will apply whenever we process your personal data:
- Consent: you have given us explicit consent for us to process your data for a specific purpose
- Contract: the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract we have with you, or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract
- Legal Obligation: the processing is necessary for GlobMed to comply with the law
- Public Interest: the processing is necessary for GlobMed to perform a task in the public interest or for our official functions, which have a clear basis in law.
- Legitimate Interests: the processing is necessary for GlobMed’s legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
- Vital Obligation: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
Under the Data Protection act 2018 and the GDPR, you have several rights which may apply to the services we provide.
- Access: Subject to certain exceptions, you have the right to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it
- Correcting: You have the right to request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
- Deletion: You have the right to request the erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
- Object: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data 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 as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object to where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Restrict: You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Portability: You have the right to request the transfer of your personal data to you or a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
- Automated Decision Making: Where your data is being used to make automated decisions about you, you have the right to be told what logic the system uses to make those decisions and to be able to request human intervention.
- Withdraw Consent: You have the right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, and how to exercise them, please contact us at [email protected].
In certain circumstances, a reasonable fee may be charged to access your personal data or exercise other rights relating to your personal data. These circumstances are as laid down by the Information Commissioner, such as excessive requests. We may also refuse to comply with the request in these circumstances.
