ATTAIN may at times not be allowed by law to disclose to an individual that such a request has been made and/or identify any data so supplied. 5. Role of ATTAIN's CLIENTs as regards Personal Data
As a requirement of using the ATTAIN SYSTEM, ATTAIN's own CLIENTs have agreed to set out in detail in their own openly available privacy policies or similar statements or notices what might happen to data, including personal data, that they collect, store and process about their own CLIENTs or potential CLIENTs. This includes setting out in their own Privacy Policies that personal data will be transferred to ATTAIN for use in the ATTAIN SYSTEM and what might happen to the information once in the ATTAIN SYSTEM (for which, see paragraph 3 just above). It also includes a requirement that ATTAIN’s own CLIENTs can demonstrate that they can satisfy any and all relevant legally required requirements to collect, store or otherwise process or use personal data and send commercial messages by electronic means were already present before that personal data is processed/used by the ATTAIN SYSTEM as well as setting out in their policy how they comply with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 as amended 6. Checking and Correcting Your Personal Data
If you feel that ATTAIN may be processing incorrect or out-of-date data about yourself, or that ATTAIN should not be processing your personal data (either at all or in part), or that processing may be causing you harm or distress, or you are simply interested in knowing what might be being processed by ATTAIN about yourself - you can request in writing a description of your personal data that ATTAIN is processing about you, the purposes for which they are being or are to be processed, the source(s) of the personal data (if known) and the classes of recipients to whom the personal data may be disclosed. This is sometimes referred to as a "Subject Access Request". ATTAIN may make a charge not usually exceeding £10 to issue reply to a Subject Access Request. The reply must be sent within 40 days of a proper written request and any required payment being received. You should be aware that the Data Protection Act 1998 sets out a number of potentially important exclusions as to what might be disclosed in reply to a Subject Access Request. You are strongly urged to contact ATTAIN’S data controller before making any formal request. If you wish to make a Subject Access Request or have a general inquiry regarding your own personal data, please contact in writing the Data Controller, ATTAIN Group Limited, 205-206 Atlas House, Caxton Close, Wigan, WN3 6XU.
7. Making a Subject Access Request.
Any personal data we may process about you is most likely to have been collected in the first instance by one of our CLIENTs with whom you may have had dealings or to whom you might make an inquiry or the like. If you know the identity of our CLIENT, it might be highly worthwhile and more time and cost-effective to consider making a subject access request to them, or at least contacting them with your concerns, especially if you are worried about the initial collection of your personal information and/or any specific usage that that CLIENT continues to make which concerns you, including sending messages by e-mail or SMS. Please note that you can usually only make subject access requests or general inquiries about yourself. You can only make a request or inquiry about another person if you have a relevant legal right to make such inquiries on their behalf. 8. For your further information
