Access to your personal data and other rights
JWF Mediation wishes to be as open as reasonably possible about personal data that we process. If you would like specific information, please ask.
You have a legal right to make a “subject access request”.
If you exercise this right and we hold personal data about you, we are required to provide you with information on it, including giving you a description and copy of the personal data and telling you why we are processing it. If you make a subject access request and there is any question about who you are, we may require you to provide information from which we can satisfy ourselves as to your identity.
You have a legal right to have your personal data rectified upon request.
You have a legal right to have your personal data erased, to object to its processing or to have its processing restricted – except for data we are obliged to keep or process for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
You have a legal right to be given data about yourself in machine readable format for transfer to another data controller. This only applies if the ground for processing is ‘consent’ or ‘contract’.
If we have relied on consent as a ground for processing, you may withdraw your consent at any time – though if you do so that will not affect the lawfulness of what we have done before you withdraw your consent.
