Data Protection Officer (DPO)
Should you have any questions or wish to exercise any right under the GDPR regulations, please contact our DPO, Lisa Rutter (lisa.Rutter@fandFgroup.co.uk).
Should you request for any information, we will respond to this requested within one month at most. In certain circumstances, for example a particularly complex or a multiple request, we reserve the right to take a further two months to provide data. In this case, we will notify you of this within one month of your request and we will explain why there is a delay.
In certain circumstances, Bond can withhold information.
These circumstances are:
- the prevention, detection or investigation of a crime
- national security or the armed forces
- the assessment or collection of tax
- judicial or ministerial appointments
Should this be the case, we do not need to explain why we are withholding information. Normally requests for information are free. However, we can charge an administrative fee in some circumstances such as if you are requesting a large amount of information, the request will take a lot of time and effort to process.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us. Third Parties
In the first instance, we would ask that any issues or complaints go to our DPO in order for us to look into this for you. However, you also have the right to complain to the UK data protection regulator (ICO) about how we’ve used your personal data.
