Your Rights

Access to information

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. You can do this by contacting us at registration@sasevents.co.uk. In order to comply with your request, we will ask you to verify your identity. We will send your copy electronically, unless the request expressly specifies a different method.

Rectification & erasure

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate. Any data that is no longer needed for the purposes specified will be deleted. If at any point you wish EACH to delete information about you, you can contact us to request we do so.

Restriction of processing

We will be required to restrict the processing of your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • where you contest the accuracy of the personal data, we should restrict the processing until we have verified the accuracy
  • where you have objected to the processing (where it was necessary for the performance of a public interest task or purpose of legitimate interests), and we are considering whether our organisation’s legitimate grounds override those of the individual
  • when processing is unlawful and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead
  • if we no longer need the personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim

If we have disclosed the personal data in question to third parties, we will inform them about the restriction on the processing of the personal data, unless it is impossible or involves disproportionate effort to do so.
