The Information Commissioner regulates data handling by organisations in the U.K and work to uphold the data rights of citizens and the Information Commissioner’s website provides more information on the rights available to you.
If you consented to providing your personal information to us and you have changed your mind and you no longer want the website to hold your information, please let us know. In the first instance please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Withdrawing consent should be as easy to do as when you provided consent in the first place. If that isn’t your experience with a particular service it is important you let us know of your difficulties so that we can put that right.
You can also use the ‘unsubscribe’ tab at the bottom of the newsletter email.

We would ask that you try and resolve data handling issues directly with us.
We are committed to handling data appropriately and are confident that we can resolve most issues informally. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an issue.
