Do we transfer your data outside the EEA?
In some cases, the personal data we collect from you may be processed outside the EEA. The countries in which your personal data are processed may not offer the same protection for your personal data as the EEA. However, it is our duty to ensure that personal data processed by us and our suppliers outside the EEA are afforded the same protection as if the processing took place within the EEA. There are therefore certain guarantees when your data is processed outside the EEA.
What are your rights regarding your data held by us?
The law gives you a number of rights in relation to your personal data. For further information and advice on your rights, please contact your country's data protection authority.
The right to rectification - You have the right to have your information corrected if it is incorrect or incomplete.
The right to delete - This is also known as the "right to forget" and ultimately allows you to request the deletion or suppression of your information as long as we do not have a compelling reason to continue using it. This is not a general right of deletion; there are exceptions.
The right to limit processing - You have rights that allow you to "block" or prevent further use of your information. When you limit processing, we may continue to keep your information, but we cannot continue using it. We retain lists of people who have requested that their information be "blocked" from further use to ensure that the restriction is respected in the future.
The right to data portability - You have rights that allow you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes in different services. This allows you to easily move, copy or transfer your information between our IT systems and third parties in a secure manner, without affecting its usability.
The right to object - You have the right to object to certain types of treatment, including treatment for direct marketing purposes (which we only carry out with your consent).
The right to present a claim- You have the right to present a claim to your country's data protection regulator about the way in which we handle or process your personal data.
The right to withdraw consent - If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although, if you do so, it does not mean that everything we have done with your personal data up to that point with your consent is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw your consent for us to use your personal data for marketing purposes.
Alternatively, we could have the right to refuse to comply with a request. Please evaluate your request responsibly before sending it. We will respond as soon as we can. Normally, we will do so within one month of receiving your request, but if the handling of the request will take longer, we will contact you to inform you.
