Your rights

You may be aware that a new European Union law, called the General Data Protection Regulation or “GDPR” gives certain rights to individuals in relation to their personal data.

Please be aware that you have the following data protection rights:

  • The right to withdraw consent at any time.

Where you have consented to the Company processing your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time by contacting us either by the following email address: support@crowdfundcampus.com or by writing to; Data Management, Crowdfnd Campus Ltd, Spring Bank, Ewyas Harold, HR2 0JD 

There may be circumstances where the Company will still need to process your data for legal or official reasons. We will inform you if this is the case. Where this is the case, we will restrict the data to only what is necessary for the purpose of meeting those specific reasons.

On request, and upon paying a small fee, we will give you a copy of all the personal information about you that we hold.
