manner, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, which you may do by

Please note however that the withdrawal of your consent will not affect any use of the data
made before you withdrew your consent and we may still be entitled to hold and process the
relevant personal information to the extent that we are entitled to do so on bases other than
your consent. Withdrawing consent may also have the same effects as not providing the

interest to do so or for as long as is necessary to comply with our legal obligations.
– We will review your personal data every year to establish whether we are still entitled

You have the following rights in relation to your personal information:

apply as they have specific requirements and exemptions which apply to them and they may
not apply to personal information recorded and stored by us. For example, we do not use
automated decision making in relation to your personal data. However, some have no
conditions attached, so your right to withdraw consent or object to processing for direct
marketing are absolute rights.
