Rights with regard to your Personal Data
You have the following rights regarding your Personal Data processed by us.

You may request access to your Personal Data that we collect and process about you.

- The duration of storage of the Personal Data; and
- Further information on your rights regarding your Personal Data.

This right allows you to receive this Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in order for you to be able to transfer this Personal Data to another data controller or processor.
(c) Right to rectification
You may, at any time, request that we rectify inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data concerning you, and we will proceed accordingly and promptly.
(d) Right to deletion (‘right to be forgotten’)
You may request the deletion of your Personal Data provided that one of the following conditions apply:
- Your Personal Data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
- There is no statutory or legal basis requiring us to maintain your Personal Data;
- You withdraw your consent for the processing and there is no other legal ground for the processing (this only relates to the Personal Data collected via the contact form or for our newsletter purposes);
- You exercise your right to object to the processing of your Personal Data;
- Your Personal Data was unlawfully processed; or
- Your Personal Data has to be erased to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
(e) Right to object
Where your personal situation justifies it, you may object to the processing of your Personal Data by us when this processing is carried out in our legitimate interests.
You may also, at any time, object to the processing of your Personal Data by us when this processing is carried out for marketing purposes.
(f) Right to restriction of processing
You may ask for the restriction of the processing of your Personal Data when one of the following applies:
- Where you dispute the accuracy of your Personal Data, you can request the restriction of the processing of your Personal Data for the period required to verify your claim;
- Where the processing is unlawful, you may choose to request the restriction of the use of your Personal Data instead of requesting its erasure;
- If we no longer need your Personal Data for the purpose of the processing, but you require this data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
- Where you objected to the processing of your Personal Data carried out in our legitimate interests, you may request the restriction of this processing while we investigate your claim.
If and when you notify us of a rectification or deletion of your personal data or a restriction of processing, we will attempt to notify each recipient to whom your Personal Data has been disclosed (unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort).
(g) Right to lodge a complaint
Please note that you always have the right to lodge a complaint regarding a breach of your rights in relation to your Personal Data with the competent supervisory authority.
