SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
It is possible that we may be required to share your data to comply with applicable laws or with valid legal processes, in response to a court order or with government or law enforcement agencies, such as the local council or the police. The legal basis in these cases is compliance with a legal obligation.
Florence only operates in the UK. Where appropriate, we may share your data with third party service providers, including those in countries outside the UK, where the data protection laws are not equivalent to those in the UK. We do so using the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission and recognised by the UK, on the basis of which data can be transferred outside the UK. The Standard Contractual Clauses oblige the organisations in those countries to comply with the same data protection standards as required in the UK. More information about these is available here.
You have certain rights in relation to the processing of your personal data, including to:
- Request access to personal data about you (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
- Request rectification, correction, or updating to any of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you
- Request personal data provided by you to be transferred in machine-readable format (“data portability”).
- Request erasure of personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you (e.g. if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it).
- Object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This right may apply where the processing of your personal data is based on the legitimate interests of Mediaburst.
These rights are not absolute and are subject to various conditions under applicable data protection and privacy legislation and the laws and regulations to which we are subject. If at any time you decide that you no longer wish to be contacted, or if you would like to exercise any of your rights as set out above, you can contact us by email (email@example.com ).
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
In addition to the above, please note that you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office if you are concerned about the way in which we are handling your personal data.
