 Your rights over your information


Right to access your information

You have the right to access the personal information that we hold about you in many circumstances, by making a request. This is sometimes termed ‘Subject Access Request’. If we agree that we are obliged to provide personal information to you (or someone else on your behalf), we will aim to provide it within 30 days from when your identity has been confirmed.  We would ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interactions with us that we can locate your personal information.

To exercise this right, contact us as set out below.

Right to correct your personal information

If any of the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate or out of date, you may ask us to correct it.

To exercise this right, contact us as set out below.

Right to stop or limit our processing of your data

You have the right to object to us processing your personal information if we are not entitled to use it any more, to have your information deleted if we are keeping it too long or have its processing restricted in certain circumstances.

To exercise this right, contact us as set out below.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regulates data protection and privacy matters in the UK. They make a lot of information accessible to consumers on their website and they ensure that the registered details of all data controllers such as ourselves are available publicly. You can access them here  https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public.

You can make a complaint to the ICO at any time about the way we use your information. However, we hope that you would consider raising any issue or complaint you have with us first. Your satisfaction is extremely important to us, and we will always do our very best to solve any problems you may have.

How long we keep your information for

Your data and artwork will be retained unless consent is withdrawn or an erasure request is made. If you change your mind after an “opt-out”, you can easily request us to retain your information by emailing

 Giving your reviews and sharing your thoughts

When using our website you may be able to share information through social media networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. For example, when you ‘like’, ‘share’ or review our services. When doing this, your personal information may be visible to the providers of those social networks and/or their other users. Remember it is your responsibility to set appropriate privacy settings on your social network accounts so you are comfortable with how your information is used and shared on them.


Data security is of great importance to Colchester Press Limited and to protect your data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your collected data.
