7. Your rights
You may have various rights under data protection legislation.
These may include:
|Your Right||What does it mean?||How do I execute this right?||Conditions to exercise?|
|Right of Access.||Subject to certain conditions, you are entitled to have access to your personal data which we hold (this is more commonly known as submitting a “data subject access request”).||Requests for such information should be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org If possible, you should specify the type of information you would like to see to ensure that our disclosure is meeting your expectations.||We must be able to verify your identity. Your request may not affect the rights and freedoms of others, e.g. privacy and confidentiality rights of other customers. Data solely retained for data backup purposes is principally excluded.|
|Right of data portability.||Subject to certain conditions, you are entitled to receive the data which you have provided to us and which is processed by us by automated means, in a commonly-used machine readable format.||Requests should be made in writing to email@example.com. If possible, you should specify the type of information you would like to receive to ensure that our disclosure is meeting your expectations.||The GDPR does not establish a general right to data portability. This right only applies if the processing is based on your consent or on our contract with you and when the processing is carried out by automated means (e.g. not for paper records). It affects only personal data that was “provided” by you. Hence, it does, as a rule, not apply to personal data that was created by Alien Unicorn Press LLC.|
|Rights in relation to inaccurate personal or incomplete data.||You may challenge the accuracy or completeness of personal data which we process about you. If it is found that personal data is inaccurate, you are entitled to have the inaccurate data removed, corrected or completed, as appropriate.||We encourage you to notify us of any changes regarding your personal data as soon as they occur, including changes to your contact details, telephone number, immigration status.

|Right to object to or restrict our data processing.||Subject to certain conditions, you have the right to object to or ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data.||Requests should be made in writing to email@example.com||This right applies only if the processing of your personal data is explicitly based on our so-called “legitimate interests” (see “basis of processing” above). Objections must be based on grounds relating to your particular situation. They must not be generic so that we can demonstrate that there are still lawful grounds for us to process your personal data.|
|Right to have personal data erased.||Subject to certain conditions, you are entitled, on certain grounds, to have your personal data erased (also known as the “right to be forgotten”), e.g. where you think that the information we are processing is inaccurate, or the processing is unlawful.||Requests should be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.||There are various lawful reasons why we may not be in a position to erase your personal data. This may apply (i) where we have to comply with a legal obligation, (ii) in case of exercising or defending legal claims, or (iii) where retention periods apply by law or our statutes.|
