As an individual whose personal data is processed by Siman Systems Ltd, you have:
- The right to be informed
Transparency is a key requirement of data protection law. You have the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data. This privacy notice is designed to provide you with the information needed to allow you to see how and why your personal data is used when visiting this website.
- The right to access the data we hold on you
You also have the right to ask for the personal data that we have about you to increase your awareness of and allow you to verify the lawfulness of the processing. To protect your privacy we may ask you to verify your identity.
- The right to have your data rectified if it is inaccurate
If you believe that personal data we hold on you is inaccurate or misleading then you have the right to request that it is rectified.
- The right to erasure (in limited circumstances)
In some circumstances, you can ask for your personal information to be deleted, for example:
- your personal information is no longer needed for the reason it was collected in the first place
- you have removed your consent for us to use your information (where there is no other legal reason us to use it)
- there is no legal reason for the use of your information
Please note that we cannot delete your information where:
- We are required to have it by law
- it is necessary to perform our functions as a public body
- it is necessary for legal claims
It is envisioned that the right to erasure will be limited as the legal reason the vast majority of personal data is processed by Siman Systems is in the exercise of its ‘official authority’ – i.e. following the requirements of legislation.
- The right to have your data restricted or blocked from processing
In certain circumstances if you raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you may also request that we ‘restrict processing’ meaning that the data will be preserved from further processing ‘as evidence’ either while we investigate your complaint or to support your complaint to the ICO.
- The right of data portability (in limited circumstances)
Where you have provided your personal data directly to us that is processed by automated means and is done so purely on the basis of your consent, then you will have the right to obtain and reuse your personal data in an electronic format for your own purposes across different services.

- that is processed for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority;
