These rights include, but are not limited to:
The Right of Access: at any time, you can ask for a copy of your personal information. RMCH will respond with whether data is held or not. If data is held then a copy of the information and the required supplement notice will be offered to you.
Right of Rectification: allows you to submit changes to your records and once changes are verified, they will be amended on RMCH records. Similarly, RMCH will periodically request you to check your data is held accurately.
Right of Erasure: if you request your data to be erased, and there is no other lawful basis to keep your data, then it will be removed.
If you would like to exercise your data subject rights including your right of access, rectification, erasure, restriction, or objection to processing, please contact the Data Protection Officer - contact details are contained within this notice.
All personal data collected under contract or legitimate interest will be held for a period of 3 years from your last interaction with the business, or it will be removed if no other lawful method of holding your data can be determined, e.g. UK finance law.
Data collected under consent will be used until consent is withdrawn or if it is no longer useful for the purpose for which it was collected. Some data may not be removed if it involves a disproportionate effort e.g. a website image of you is held by the Google search engine.
This does not affect your rights as a data subject.
Please note: after this retention period has expired, RMCH will be unable to reinstate the original data, assuming the data was held in the first instance.
Failing to provide necessary personal data

Sharing personal data
RMCH will share your personal data with other organisations in order to supply services to you.
If RMCH shares your data on a regular basis it will perform due-diligence and hold written contracts and agreements with these organisations to legally safeguard your data.
If you have consented for us to share your data with other organisations for the purposes of direct marketing, we will keep your consent on record until it is withdrawn or the purpose of holding your data is no longer valid. On deletion of your data, RMCH will endeavour to contact you to confirm that your information has been removed.
Transfer to international countries
Your data may be transferred internationally. If your data is transferred, RMCH will legally safeguard your personal data by:
Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding the protection of your personal data. Where this is the case, end-to-end encryption will be employed to transmit the data securely. e.g. using industry standard data encryption (SSL or TLS) to connect to websites or using email encryption technologies.
Where RMCH is unable to utilise legal safeguards when transferring data to a third-country, RMCH will seek consent from you to facilitate the data transfer.
