When you create a PLR account we will collect your contact details, details of the publications which you wish to register, and your financial details.
We will use these details to administer the PLR payment scheme, as part of a task performed in the public interest. Further details about our public task can be found here.
We may also use this data for the purpose of analysis in support of service improvement, IT security, or other legitimate interests of the Library.
You can access your account at https://www.bl.uk/plr, in order to make corrections to your personal information or manage your registered publications.
We will retain your PLR account information for as long as your account remains current plus a further six years in order to comply with tax and accounting rules and to provide evidence in the face of future complaints or legal claims. We may retain information about PLR payments (which may include your name and correspondence) for longer if we believe such information is likely to be of importance to future research.
