The UK GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:

To exercise your privacy rights and choices, please get in touch with us by completing the form on the Contact Us page.

A fee is not usually payable to exercise your rights, although we reserve the right to charge you a reasonable fee if your request is unfounded,
repetitive or excessive.
