Right of access - you have a right to have access to copies of the personal data that we hold about you subject to certain limitations. We are obliged to respond to any such request within a month of receiving it. We will inform you in writing following receipt of your request and if necessary seek additional information from you about it.
Right of rectification - you have a right to have your personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete. If you become aware that any of the data which we hold about you is inaccurate, or if you become aware of any circumstances that require changes to be made to any of the personal data which we hold about you, you should inform us as soon as possible; this is particularly important where we are processing an application for a loan for you, as failure to tell us your circumstances have changed may affect the ability of the lender to complete the loan.
Right to be forgotten - you have a right to request the deletion or removal of your personal data where there is no longer a compelling reason for us to continue processing it, or where our processing is based on your consent and you withdraw that consent.
Right to restrict processing - you have a right to block or suppress the processing of personal data in certain circumstances. If, for example, you contest the accuracy of personal data, processing may be restricted until the accuracy of the personal data has been verified. This may also apply where you contest that the processing is unlawful.
Right to object - you have a right to object to processing of your personal data if it is based on the performance of a legal task or is based on our legitimate interests. You also have the right to object where we process your information for research purposes.

SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
Appreciating that both privacy and security of your information is of the utmost importance, Bridging Link has implemented technology and security policies, rules and measures to protect personal information we hold about you. We protect your information by:
- Ensuring that your information is kept securely in our databases and offices. We only allow our employees and trusted contractors access to your information, and then only if they need it for a specific authorised task. The computers on which we store your information are kept in a secure environment.
- Ensuring that we only pass your personal data to third parties where security and confidentiality are assured.
- We typically process personal data inside the EEA, but if we were to process data outside the EEA, we would only do so if we were sure your information were protected in the same way as it is within the EEA.
- We take all reasonable steps to protect your information, but data can never be guaranteed as 100% secure. Please note that we will not be liable for any breach of security unless there is proof of negligence by us.

In this section you will find information on what cookies may be set when you visit our website and how to reject or delete those cookies.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are provided on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example your computer or mobile phone. This information consists of small files known as cookies and they cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve our services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to provide the same information several times during one task.
- Recognising that you may already have provided a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested.
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they’re fast.
- You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them by visiting: www.direct.gov.uk/managingcookies

- Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact the functionality of the websites you visit.
The type of cookie used on this Site can each be put into 1 of 4 categories, based on the International Chamber of Commerce guide to cookie categories.
A. Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, services you've asked for (such as access to secure areas) cannot be provided. These cookies don't gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you've been on the internet. These cannot be restricted or blocked.
B. Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies don't gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works. These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. Without these cookies we cannot learn how our website is performing and make the necessary improvements that could enhance your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.
C. Functionality Profile Cookies: These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you. For instance, they remember your log-in details and allow you to watch videos. They also ensure the onsite marketing and experience is relevant to you. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you've made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you've previously made or personalise your browsing experience. These can be restricted or blocked.
D. Targeting Cookies: These cookies gather information about your browsing habits. They remember that you've visited a website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers. They do this in order to provide you with ads that are more relevant to you and your interests. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they don't usually know who you are. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests. These can be restricted or blocked.
