Your rights

Access to your information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information about you that Scottish Enterprise (SE) holds.

Correcting your information

SE wants to make sure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up to date and you may ask SE to correct any personal information about you that you believe does not meet these standards.

Deletion of your information

You have the right to ask SE to delete personal information about you where:

  • You consider that SE no longer requires the information for the purposes for which it was obtained
  • SE is using that information with your consent and you have withdrawn your consent – see Withdrawing consent to using your information below
  • You have validly objected to SE's use of your personal information – see Objecting to how we may use your information below
  • SE's use of your personal information is contrary to law or SE's other legal obligations.

Objecting to how we may use your information

You have the right at any time to require SE to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In addition, where SE uses your personal information to perform tasks carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in it then, if you ask it to, SE will stop using that personal information unless there are overriding legitimate grounds to continue.

Restricting how we may use your information

In some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information about you that we hold or assessing the validity of any objection you have made to SE's use of your information.

The right might also apply where SE no longer has a basis for using your personal information but you don't want SE to delete the data. Where this right to validly exercised, SE may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.

Automated processing

If SE uses your personal information on an automated basis to make decisions which significantly affect you, you have the right to ask that the decision be reviewed by an individual within SE to whom you may make representations and contest the decision. This right only applies where SE uses your information with your consent or as part of a contractual relationship with you.

Withdrawing consent using your information

Where SE uses your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time and SE will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given.
