How to exercise your right to object?


Before objecting, you should ask us why we are processing your data.

This is because you can only object to processing when we are using your data for:

  • a task carried out in the public interest
  • our legitimate interests
  • scientific or historical research, or statistical purposes or
  • direct marketing


You can make an objection verbally or in writing. We would recommend emailing


If you make your objection verbally, we would recommend that you follow it up in writing to provide a clear trail of correspondence. It will also provide clear evidence of your actions.

We may legally have to refuse your objection to processing your data if: 

  • we need the data for a legal claim
  • we have a strong reason to continue using the data that overrides your objection.


We can also refuse your request if it is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’.


In any case we will tell you and justify our decision.
