What To Do If You Have a Complaint About the Service We Have Provided or The Handling or Storage of Your Personal Data
If you are not happy with the service provided to you and/or the handling or storage of your personal data, you should contact the person normally dealing with your case or their supervising partner or manager.

If the matter is complex and it takes longer to deal with your complaint, they will let you know as soon as possible and give you an approximate timescale of when you can expect a response. They may suggest a telephone call or meeting to discuss matters. If you have a preference for how they communicate their response to you, please let them know.
