If you are granted joint controller status our policy will govern all matters relating to subject access requests, with B&Y solely communicating with the subject regarding the collection of their information. If your agreement is renewed we will reissue you with a new license allowing you to access and use our data for another term.

As controllers we regularly conduct audits, which includes where applicable suppression of files against MPS and TPS, cleansing of any de-dupes and removal or redundant entries prior to disclosure. At times records may become redundant without our knowledge and if you believe this to be the case please inform B&Y immediately of those exact records and we will look into the matter, replacing only when B&Y agrees a record has become redundant. Data processors do not need to inform us of unsubscribes from their own communications, as this does not constitute unsubscribing from the publication. If a subject unsubscribes from your own communications you must delete their record from your network immediately.

The Data Recipient warrants and undertakes that it will not disclose or transfer Shared Personal Data to third parties either within or outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
