How Long Your Information is Kept

We keep your personal data for as long as necessary. We keep your contact information until we consider there is no need to provide administrative or advice support or until you request it to be erased.

Your Rights

 

Under certain circumstances, by law 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.

 

  • Request correction of the personal data we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected

 

  • Request 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 processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below)

 

  • Object to processing of your personal data in particular ways, including processing based on the lawful basis of legitimate interests and direct marketing. CPA and Associates Limited does not use your data for direct marketing.

 

  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

 

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to yourself or another party in a safe and secure way, without affecting its usability, for example in a format that is structured, commonly used, and machine-readable.

 

Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply. Further details regarding these rights can be found on the Information Commissioner’s Office website using this link:
