Due to the way in which we maintain certain services, it may take some time before backup copies are erased.
  • Right to restriction of processing  You have the right to obtain a restriction on the processing of your personal data. This means that we will suspend the processing of your data for a certain period. Circumstances which may give rise to this right include situations where the accuracy of your personal data is contested, and we need some time to verify its (in)accuracy. This right does not prevent us from continuing to store your personal data. We will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
  • Right to data portability  Your right to data portability entails that you may ask us to provide you with your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and have such data transmitted directly to another controller, where technically feasible. Upon request and where this is technically feasible, we will transmit your personal data directly to the other controller.
  • Right to object  You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. This means you may ask us to no longer process your personal data.

If you exercise this right, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.
If we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not impact the legality of any processing that was carried out prior to your withdrawal.

There may be situations where we are entitled to deny or restrict your rights as described above in this Section 6. In all cases, we will carefully assess whether such an exemption applies, and inform you accordingly. We may, for example, deny your request for access when necessary to protect the rights and freedoms of other individuals, or refuse to delete your personal data in case the processing of such data is necessary for compliance with legal obligations. The right to data portability, for example, does not apply if the personal data was not provided by you or if we process the data on grounds other than your consent or for the performance of a contract.
Please rest assured, that we do not engage in automated individual decision-making processes based on your personal information, including profiling. In this regard, we do not make decisions that would have legal effects on you based solely on automated processing.
