2. The right of access

You have a right to access your personal data from the data controller of your personal information, so that you are aware of and can verify the lawfulness of the processing. This is commonly known as a 'subject access request'.

You may at any time make a written request for a copy of the personal information your employer, as the data controller, has on record for you which will include any information we process on their behalf.

We will await their instruction in processing the request. If your employer asks us to, we will respond to the request within one month. If we process information about you, your employer will confirm this and advise of the following:

  1. give you a description of the personal data;
  2. tell you why we are holding it;
  3. tell you who your personal data could be disclosed to; and
  4. let you have a copy in an intelligible form.

Your employer, as the data controller, is responsible for your right of access and should be contacted directly to make a right of access request.

3. The right to rectification

You have the right to have personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

As controller of your personal information, your employer ensures the accuracy of your data. Your employer checks that personal information is accurate and tells us when to update it. When provided by your employer, caboodle will rectify personal data within one month of receipt.

In some cases, if your employer prefers you to self-serve your own personal information, you will be able to update any inaccurate information yourself on the 'Personal Details' page of Salary Extras.

Please contact your employer directly to make a right to rectification request, unless you can update the information yourself.

4. The right to erasure

You have the right to request your personal data is deleted or removed where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. Personal data will be deleted under these circumstances:

  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed.
  • When you withdraw consent.
  • When you object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing.
  • The personal data was unlawfully processed (i.e. otherwise in breach of the GDPR).
  • The personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.
  • The personal data is processed in relation to the offer of information society services to a child

Where the right to erasure does not apply, your employer or caboodle will refuse to deal with a request.

You should contact your employer directly to make a right to erasure request who will contact us accordingly.

5. The right to restrict processing

You have a right to ask us to suspend processing of personal data under the following circumstances:

  • you contest the accuracy of your personal data;
  • the data has been unlawfully processed (i.e. in breach of the lawful reason for processing) but you do not want us to delete it;
  • you no longer need the personal data but you need to keep it in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
  • you object to caboodle processing your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

6. The right to data portability

The right to portability allows you to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way, so that you can reuse for their own purposes.

Requests made in relation to your right to data portability can be made using any of the contact methods in the 'contact us' section of this policy.

Caboodle will ensure you obtain a machine-readable copy of the information held by any caboodle Technology system according to procedure, within one month of the request being made.

7. The right to object

You have the right to object to:

  • processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling);
  • direct marketing (including profiling); and
  • processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics;

on grounds relating to your particular situation.

8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling

Any information about processing based on automated individual decision-making and profiling is laid out here. Salary Sacrifice schemes are subject to HMRC regulation which sets rules for applications. Applicants must be over 18 and the application must not take the employee below the national minimum wage. However, at the discretion of your employer, applicants may be allowed to apply for certain benefits against these criteria; usually, this is managed in-house at your company. Salary Extras has age and wage limitations automatically set within its salary sacrifice schemes. Where your application is automatically rejected by the Salary Extras system due to these limitations, caboodle have ways for you to request human intervention or challenge a decision and we carry out regular checks to make sure that caboodle are working as intended.


Caboodle reserve the right to divulge information when we are required to do so by law, for example under a court order or provisions contained in legislation.
