This means that we will only send personal information to a non-EEA country if:

establish, exercise or defend legal claims in accordance with statutory limitation periods.

10. Your legal rights
Right of access
You have a right to know whether we are processing your personal information. If we are processing your personal information, you also have a right to request copies of your personal information that we are processing and certain further information, including the purposes of our processing and the recipients or categories of recipients to whom we have disclosed (or will disclose) your personal information.
Right to rectification
You have the right to require us to rectify or complete any inaccurate or incomplete personal information that we are holding about you.
Right to erasure
You have a right to ask us to erase your personal information. This is also known as the “right to be forgotten”. We must erase your personal information following your request except in limited circumstances prescribed by law, such as where we need to retain your personal information in order to comply with a legal obligation or in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. In these circumstances, we will restrict our processing of your personal information by putting it “beyond use”. This means that your personal information is deleted from our website and retained only in a separate and restricted database, where it will not be processed for any purpose other than as detailed above. Access to this database is managed by our DPO and is strictly limited.
Right to restriction of processing
You have a right to require us to restrict processing of your personal information where: –
you believe that the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate and we require reasonable time to verify the accuracy of that personal information;
your personal information has been unlawfully processed by us but you do not want us to erase that personal information;
it is no longer necessary for us to keep your personal information for the purposes for which they were collected by us but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
you exercise your right to object to processing and we require reasonable time to verify whether there are any overriding grounds upon which we may rely in order to continue that processing.
Right to data portability
If we process your personal information with your consent or because it is necessary for us to do so in order to provide our service to you, you may require us to move, copy or transfer that personal information to you or another third party in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
Right to object
You have a right to object to our processing of your personal information where we are processing that personal information on legitimate interest grounds.
