Your personal data rights explained

Your rights regarding your personal data

Your personal data is protected under Data Protection legislation, and as a consequence you have a number of rights that you can enforce against us as your Data Controller.

For more information on how we use your personal data, take a look at our Using my personal data booklet.

Right to rectification

This right refers to having your personal data corrected if it’s inaccurate, or to have any incomplete personal data completed.

To request a right to rectification you can contact us:

By phone
Call us on 0800 092 3300. Lines are open from 7.00am to 9.00pm Monday to Saturday and 8.00am to 9.00pm on a Sunday.

Calls may be recorded or monitored.

Right to object to processing

In certain circumstances you can object to the processing of your personal information.

To object to the processing of your personal information for marketing or market research, please refer to the ‘Changing your marketing preferences’ section of the Using my personal data booklet.

If you object to the processing of your personal data for any other reason, it may mean we can’t provide certain products and services to you.

Right to restrict processing

You can ask us to restrict processing your data, for example where:

  • you’re contesting the accuracy of your personal data;
  • we no longer need to process your personal data, but you want us to keep it for use in legal claims; or
  • you’ve objected to the processing by asking us to stop using your data, but you’re waiting for us to tell you if we have overriding grounds which mean we’re allowed to keep on using it.

If the right applies, this means with the exception of storage, your personal data can only be processed by us with your consent or for certain things such as legal claims or to exercise legal rights.

If you request that we restrict the processing of your personal data it may mean we can’t provide certain products and services to you.

To request a right to object to, or restrict processing you can contact us:

By phone
Call us on 0800 092 3300.
Calls may be recorded or monitored.

 

 

Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

In the circumstances below you can ask us to delete your personal data. Where the right doesn’t apply we’ll let you know why we can’t action your request.

This right may be applied where:

  • personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which is was originally collected/processed;
  • the processing was based on your consent which you withdraw (and there are no other legal grounds for processing that data);
  • you exercise your right to object and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing; or
  • there is no lawful reason to retain personal data or if the personal data has to be erased to comply with a legal obligation.

To request a right to erasure you can contact us:

By phone
Call us on 0800 092 3300.
Calls may be recorded or monitored.

Right to portability

You can ask us to provide you with a copy of certain personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. This right only applies to personal data that you’ve previously provided to us, we process electronically and we’re processing based on your consent or to perform a contract with you.

If you request a right to portability on your joint account, you’ll only receive your own personal and transactional data and only if you have transactional access on the account. Other joint account customers on the same account will need to make a separate request.

To request a right to portability you can contact us:

By phone
Call us on 0800 092 3300.
Calls may be recorded or monitored.

Sharing of your personal data

If you open an account with us, your information will be kept after your account is closed. Your information may be shared across the Santander Group or associated companies, service providers or agents for administration purposes to:

  • provide and run the account or service you have applied for, and develop and/or improve our products and services;
  • identify and advise you by post, telephone or electronic media (including email and SMS) of products or services which our group of companies and our associated companies think may be of interest to you (for credit products this may involve releasing your details to a credit reference agency); and
  • release your name, address and telephone number to market research organisations for the purpose of confidential market research surveys, carried out by post or telephone, on our behalf.

Our Complaints Leaflet is available upon request and contains further information on our complaints process, including the handling timescales. This information is also available on our website at caterallen.co.uk.

You may also be able to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. The Financial Ombudsman Service acts as an independent and impartial organisation which helps settle disputes between consumers and financial services businesses. You can find out more information at financial-ombudsman.org.uk.

Data subject access requests

You have the right to find out what information, if any, is held about you. This is known as a data subject access request.

A data subject access request is not designed to deal with general queries that you may have about your account. We therefore aim to provide you with the information you require without you having to make a formal request. If you would like to find out specific information about your account, you can contact us by phone.

To make a formal data subject access request you can contact us:

By post

Write to us at the address below, providing:

  • a daytime phone number in case we need to contact you to discuss your request;
  • your sort code and account number(s); and
  • detail on what information you are requesting.

Automated decision making and processing

In some instances we’ll undertake automated processing and decision-making to decide which of our other account(s) might be of interest to you. You have a right not to have a decision made based solely on automated processing (including profiling) that produces legal or similar effects. This doesn’t apply where the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract, is authorised by law, or the person has given their consent to the processing (though they can revoke their consent thereafter).

Where you have been adversely affected by an automated decision, and/or you think we have made a mistake, or you have further information to support your case, there is an underwriting process in place. We can’t guarantee to reverse a decision, but we’ll always be happy to reconsider your application if you believe you have been wrongly declined.

To ask us to reconsider your application you can contact us:

By post
Write to us at the relevant address below, providing your name, address, phone number and a convenient time for us to call you to discuss your request.
