10.1. Right to information

At any time, you can request a copy of your data. You may also consult the data, use it yourself or transfer it to another service provider.

10.2. Right to rectification

You are entitled to demand that we correct forthwith any inaccurate personal data concerning you.

10.3. Right to deletion

You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data. Your data will  be deleted if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, if it was unlawfully processed, if you object to the processing or if deletion is mandatory under EU law or under the law of a Member State to which we are subject.

10.4. Right to restriction of processing

You are entitled to demand that we restrict processing in accordance with Article 18 GDPR. This right applies especially if we are not in agreement with the user concerning the accuracy of any personal data. The right persists for the time required to verify its accuracy. In addition such right applies in the following cases: if the user is entitled to demand deletion but instead demands restricted processing; if the data is no longer required for the purposes we are pursuing, but the user needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; and if an objection has been raised but its successful exercise is still disputed between us and the user.

10.5. Right to data portability

You are entitled to demand from us whatever personal information you may have given us. Pursuant to Article 20 GDPR, at your request we must provide you with such information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

10.6 Right to object

Pursuant to Article 21 GDPR you are entitled at any time to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds related to your particular situation, including grounds under Article 6 section 1 (e) or (f) GDPR. We will cease processing your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling and legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is done for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.

 

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising.
