When we use a processor we make sure that there is a legal agreement in place regarding how they will be handling data on our behalf.

You have the following rights:

  1. Your right of access and rectification – You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal data or ask us to rectify information you think is inaccurate.

  2. Your right to erasure – You can ask us to erase your personal information in certain circumstances.

  3. You also have the right to have the processing of your personal data restricted.

  4. Your right to withdraw your consent: If processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
