7. Data Subject Rights
You have the right to:
Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it in a lawful manner.
You may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting information as the personal data which we process. You shall receive one copy free of charge via email of the personal data which is undergoing processing. Any further copies of the information processed shall incur a charge of €10.00.
Request correction or rectification of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected and/or updated, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data.
This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where:
you have objected to the processing (other than in relation to objections to direct marketing) and there are no overriding legitimate grounds to justify that processing;
the personal data is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected or processed;
you withdraw consent and there are no other grounds for the processing;
the personal data is unlawfully processed; and/or
there is a legal obligation under EU or Member State law to erase the personal data.
comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
assert, exercise or defence of legal claims (including possible future claims).
Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. Most commonly, this will be where further processing of the personal data is required by us to:
4. Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which causes you to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms.
In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your personal information that override your rights and freedoms.
5. Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
you have objected to the processing and the Company is considering whether there are overriding legitimate grounds that justify continued processing;
the processing is no longer necessary, but retention of the data is needed by you to deal with legal claims;
the processing is unlawful, but you have requested that the processing of the data be restricted as opposed to being erased;
the accuracy of the personal data is being contested, and the Company is in the process of verifying that data.
Request the transfer (data portability)of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note however that this right only applies:
where our processing is based on consent or the performance of a contract;
where our processing is carried out by automated means (therefore this right does not cover or apply to "paper files");
to personal data concerning you;
to personal data which the Company holds about you.
7. Withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data (which will generally not be the case). This will not however affect the lawfulness of any processing which we carried out before you withdrew your consent. Any processing activities that are not based on your consent will remain unaffected.
If you want to request the exercise of any your data subject rights, please contact us in writing at email@example.com. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the data in question (or to exercise any other right).Kindly note that none of these data subject rights are absolute and must generally be weighed against our own legal obligations and legitimate interests. If a decision is taken to override your data subject request, you will be informed of this along with the reasons for our decision.
If you have any questions about this Policy or how we handle your personal data and information, please contact us in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org
You have the right to lodge a complaint at any time to a competent supervisory authority on data protection matters, such as the supervisory authority in the place of your habitual residence or place of work. In the case of Malta, this is the Information and Data Protection Commissioner (“IDPC”), whose website can be accessed through the following link: https://idpc.org.mt/en/Pages/Home.aspx.
We would, however, appreciate the opportunity to deal with your concerns internally before you approach the supervisory authority, so please bring the matter to our attention at the first instance.
