It is important that the personal data ITG holds about you is accurate and current. Please keep ITG informed if your personal data changes so that ITG can update its records. Please inform your usual contact at ITG, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
● Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data ITG holds about you and to check that ITG is lawfully processing it.
● Request correction of the personal data that ITG holds about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information ITG holds about you corrected.
● Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask ITG to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for ITG continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask ITG to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
● Object to processing of your personal data where ITG are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where ITG are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
● Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask ITG to suspend the processing of your personal data, for example if you want ITG to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

Usually, you will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, ITG may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, ITG may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
ITG may need to request specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.

ITG reserves the right to update this Privacy Notice at any time. ITG may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal data.
