            5. Have your data deleted or its use restricted – you have a right to this under certain circumstances. For example, where you withdraw consent you gave us previously and there is no other legal or contractual basis for us to retain it, or where you object to our use of your personal information for particular legitimate business interests.

            6. Data portability whereby your personal data can be transmitted directly from one controller to another where technically feasible.

            7. Withdraw consent at any time, where any processing is based on consent. If you withdraw your consent, it will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.

We are obliged to respond without undue delay. In most instances, we will respond within 30 days. If we are unable to deal with your request fully within 30 days, we may extend this period by a further 60 days. Should this be necessary, we will explain the reasons why. If you make your request electronically, we will, where possible, provide the relevant information electronically unless you ask us otherwise.

Any such request should be made to us in writing to: Data Protection Officer, RSA School of Motoring, Digital Office Centre, Balheary Road, Swords, Co. Dublin, K67E5A0 or by email to info@rsaschoolofmotoring.ie.
