  1. Your rights

Depending on your personal situation, you have the rights listed below in application of the RGPD and the Loi Informatique et Libertés. 

Right of access: You have the right to obtain confirmation that we are processing personal data about you. Where applicable, you have the right to access the personal data we hold about you. This gives you the right to receive a copy of your personal data and certain information about the processing of your personal data.

Right to Correction: You have the right to ask us to correct your personal data if it is inaccurate or out of date. If you have created an online profile, you can correct your information at any time by visiting your account.

Right to erasure: In certain circumstances, you have the right to request the erasure of your personal data. Please note that your personal data can only be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and we have no other legal basis for processing it.

Right of restriction: You may request that we restrict the use of your personal data in certain circumstances, such as where the data is not or is no longer required, or where you have challenged the accuracy of the data, until we can verify its accuracy.

Right to portability: We will provide your personal data to you, or to a third party chosen by you, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Please note that this right only applies to your personal data that we process in an automated way (i) with your consent or (ii) in the performance of a contract with you.

Right to object: Where we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you may object to such processing where your particular circumstances so warrant. In some cases, we may not comply with your request if we demonstrate that our legitimate interest prevails. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time and without justification.

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

Fate of data after death: You may also formulate instructions concerning the retention, deletion and communication of your personal data after your death.

You will not be charged a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any of the other rights mentioned above. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is manifestly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. We may also refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may ask you for specific information to help us confirm your identity so that we can respond to your request to exercise one of your rights.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Sometimes it may take longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or if you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will inform you and keep you informed of the progress of your request.
