7.  Your Rights Regarding the Data

Consistent with applicable law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request" in the EU). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to another party.
  • Not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (e.g. automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain aspects about you), which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you unless it is:
  • necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between us; or
  • authorized by law (e.g. for the purposes of fraud or tax evasion); or
  • you provide your explicit consent.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at
