Your Information and Rights

You can request access to your personal information, or correct or update out-of-date or inaccurate personal information we hold about you. You can most easily do this by visiting the Contact MPLC section of the website, where you have the ability to request a broad range of information about your account, including your contact information, your MPLC payment information, a copy of your invoice or licence and various related information about your account (such as a list of facilities that are covered under your licence). You may also request that we delete personal information that we hold about you.

We may reject requests that are unreasonable or not required by law, including those that would be extremely impractical, could require disproportionate technical effort, or could expose us to operational risks.

Security

We use reasonable administrative, logical, physical and managerial measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorised access, use and modification.
