Update your gender with companies in one go. It's fast and completely free.

Easily tell companies that you need to update your gender details by sending them a 'rectification request' below today.

Why should I update my gender?

Fundamentally, you should update your gender with companies if you wish to. While of course there's no obligation to, if being referred to as the wrong gender bothers you because it's wrong, you can legally update your details for free with any company.

Many people find the process of updating their gender with companies lengthy, difficult and time-consuming. It doesn't have to be.

To change the gender a company has listed for you, you can use your 'right to rectification' for free through Rightly.

What's my right to rectification?

Your right to rectification means that you can tell any organisation that has your personal data to update it for free. It comes from GDPR, which applies in the UK and EU.

This applies for your name, address, gender or anything else you'd like to correct. It's your personal data after all.

What's that?

Personal data is any information that can directly or indirectly identify you as you. Think address, beliefs, and financial records.

Sending a rectification request can help you make your data work for you.

You can:

  • stop companies referring to you in the wrong way
  • take control of your personal data
  • save time by sending multiple requests at once

This process should be easy. Find out how to send your first set of requests below.

How long until a company responds to my request?

After the company has received your request, they have to reply in full within 30 days, or give a valid reason for asking for an extension. If this happens, our support team can assist you.

What if they refuse to update my details?

Don't worry, you can tell any company to correct inaccurate personal data, even if you don't know for sure whether or not they have it. They have to confirm with you what they have and that they've updated them. This is thanks again to your ‘right of rectification’ under GDPR law.
