You have the right of access to your personal information. If you wish to receive a copy of the personal information we hold on you, you may make a data subject access request (DSAR).
Right to request that your personal information be rectified

Right to request information removal
You can ask for your information to be deleted or removed if there is not a compelling or legal reason for B&M to retain it.
