Right to information and access to your data
You can ask us for more information about our processing activities and the data we hold about you.

Right to correction of incorrect or incomplete data
You may ask us to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete personal data.

Right to have your personal data deleted ("right to be forgotten")
Upon written request, we will delete your personal data :
- if it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed; or
- if the processing was based solely on your consent, which you now withdraw; or
- you have reasonable grounds for objecting to the processing of your personal data; or
- the personal data has been unlawfully processed; or
- if the personal data must be deleted to comply with a legal obligation.

Exceptionally, we may refuse to delete your data (i) in order to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information; (ii) in order to comply with a legal obligation; or (iii) in order to institute, exercise or support legal proceedings.

Right to limit processing
You have the right to obtain the restriction of processing if any of the following situations apply:
- for a period allowing us to verify the accuracy of the personal data if it is disputed; or
- if you so request, instead of deleting the data; or
- if we no longer need the personal data, but you need it to institute, exercise or support legal proceedings; or
- if you have objected to processing based on our legitimate interests.

Right to object to the processing of your personal data
You have the right at any time, depending on your specific situation, to object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of our "balancing of legitimate interests". In this case, we will no longer process the data, unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh or are related to the institution, exercise or support of legal proceedings.

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes (in particular for sending our electronic newsletter or personal advertising by ordinary mail), you have the right to object at any time or to withdraw your consent. You also have the right not to be subject to profiling for marketing purposes.

Right to data transferability
In certain cases, you have the right to obtain your personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable form, and to transfer (or have transferred) this personal data to a responsible third party. This right applies :

if the processing is based on the legal basis of consent or on the need to perform a contract, and
where the processing is carried out by automated methods.
