5. Rights you have over your data - You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following: ● Where data processing is based on consent, you may revoke this consent at any time and i will make it as easy as possible for you to do this (for example by putting ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of all our marketing emails). ● You have the right to ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information. ● You have the right of access to your information. ● You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner if you feel your rights have been infringed.

Please note that relying on some of these rights, such as the right to deleting your data, will make it impossible for me to continue to deliver some services to you. However, where possible i will always try to allow the maximum access to your rights while continuing to deliver as many services to you as possible.
