ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Under certain grounds for refusal set out in the Act, you maintain the right to access your readily retrievable personal information that we hold and to request a correction to your personal information. We require evidence to confirm that you are the legal person to whom the personal information relates to before you exercise this right.
Regarding requests for correcting of information, if we think the correction is reasonable and under our circumstances, we believe the change can be made, we will make the correction. If we do not make the correction, we will take reasonable steps to note on the personal information that you requested the correction.
If you want to exercise either of the above rights, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Your email should provide evidence of who you are and set out the details of your request (e.g. the personal information, or the correction, that you are requesting). We may charge you our reasonable costs of providing to you copies of your personal information or correcting that information.
While we take reasonable steps to maintain secure internet connections, if you provide us with personal information over the internet, the provision of that information is at your own risk.
