In the interest of full disclosure and transparency we have summarized your rights under GDPR Chapter 3 in this section. However, some these rights are complex, and you are therefore encouraged to read the relevant laws and/or guidance from your local supervisory authority.
7.1. Your rights under the GDPR
The Right of Access
You have the right to know whether we process your personal data. If we do, you have also the right to access this personal data, providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected.
We will provide a transcript of your data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a fee of 10 euros per copy to cover administrative costs.
Should any of your personal data prove to be inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to have this corrected/rectified.
The right to erasure is also known as the “right to be forgotten”. If any of the conditions in Article 17 apply, you have the right to have your personal data deleted from our records.
Please be aware that there can be certain exceptions to the right to erasure, such as exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data, for example if:
- you contest the accuracy of the personal data;
- we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and
- you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.
This list is not exhaustive, and we would like to refer you to Article 18 of the GDPR for the full list
As a general rule, you have a right to be notified of:
- Rectification of your personal data
- Erasure or your personal data
- Restriction of processing of your personal data.
You have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
The Right to object
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for:
- the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or;
- in the exercise of any official authority vested in us or;
- the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
If you object to us processing your personal data we will cease to process the data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.
7.2. Exercising your rights
You may exercise any of these rights by submitting a "Subject Access Request”(SAR).This can be done by forwarding a request in writing to our Data Protection Officer with a clear description of the information you seek. We will respond to your request within 10 working days.
7.3. Your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
We take a service-oriented approach to facilitating your rights. However, should you experience that we have sufficiently answered your request, or that our processing of your personal data infringes data protection laws, please do not hesitate to submit a complaint to our DPO.
Submitting a complaint to our DPO does not prevent you from submitting a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority in parallel. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
