We try to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’, without any cost to the individual and in a machine-readable format. If we do hold information about you, we will:
To make a request please write to Watchlotto Limited , 114-116 Fore Street, Hertford, SG14 1AJ for any personal information we may hold you need to put the request in writing, addressing it to our Data Protection Lead email@example.com, we will ensure a response to you in a machine readable format is provided within one calendar month.
If we do not hold information about you due to it being erased due to the retention dates being expired or through a previous request for erasure, we will inform you. Should you feel the response not be adequate you have the opportunity to escalate to the ICO.
Within GDPR every individual has the right for their data to be forgotten or erased, unless there are legal grounds which do not allow the erasure, such as:
Should you request to be forgotten, or give authority to a 3rd party, such as your solicitor, we will confirm the identity and then proceed to remove your personally identifiable data from our records and send you an audit to confirm removal. We will keep the minimum data to identify you as a living person, in case of an audit by the ICO or a second request should come in, to prove we have acted in accordance with the GDPR.
Again, should you not be happy with the process we have gone through you have the right to complain to our Data Protection Lead, and in turn if the response is not adequate you retain the right to escalate this to the ICO
When we receive a complaint from a person we log the details of the complaint and validate them against our records. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint. We will only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint.
We usually have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.
We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for xx years from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.
Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to us we will only use the information supplied to us to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues.
We will ensure your data is retained for the agreed retention period and deleted at that point, we will also ensure your data is properly deleted this also includes any data transmissions that hold data temporarily, as we will ensure they are deleted after the event,
We ensure all your data is held securely and our staff are trained to understand the many different types of breaches, such as:
Any data breaches will be detected, reported to the ICO within 72 hours and we will let the individuals know who have been affected while we carry out our investigations.
We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This privacy notice was last updated on May 2021.
