  1. the right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data;
  2. the right to access the personal data we hold about you;
  3. the right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete;
  4. the right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data we hold;
  5. the right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data;
  6. the right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes;
  7. the right to withdraw consent;
  8. the right to data portability; and
  9. rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. (We do not use your personal data in this way.)
