The Data Subject may exercise his or her rights under the GDPR at any time, in the manner described in Article 1) above. In particular, the Data Subject is entitled to:


Right of access

A data subject may ask us whether or not we process any of his or her data, and if so, he or she may obtain access to such data from us in the form of a copy. When a data subject makes a request for access, we also provide him or her with additional information, such as the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data in question, and any other information necessary for the data subject to exercise this right.


Right of rectification

The data subject has the right to correct his or her data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. Upon request, we will correct inaccurate personal data and, taking into account the purposes of processing, complete incomplete data.


Right of deletion

The data subject has the right to have his or her personal data deleted. The deletion of personal data can only occur in certain cases, listed in Article 17 of the GDPR. This includes situations where the data subject’s personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the initial purposes for which it was processed, as well as situations where it was processed unlawfully. In relation to how we provide some services, we inform that it may take some time before backup copies are deleted. We also inform you that the Data Controller will, within the limits of the state of the art, provide for the deletion of the data subject’s personal data, unless the retention of such data is required by law.


Right to limitation of processing

The data subject has the right to obtain the restriction of the processing of his/her personal data, which means that we suspend the processing of the data subject’s data for a certain period of time. Circumstances that may give rise to this right (Article 18 GDPR) include situations where the accuracy of personal data has been disputed, but time is needed to verify its (in)accuracy. If the data subject has obtained a restriction on the processing of your data, we will inform them before this restriction is lifted.


Right to Oppose

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, which means that you can request us to stop processing your personal data for certain purposes (e.g. direct marketing; soft spam). We inform that this right is granted to the data subject only in special circumstances (Article 21 GDPR) and, in particular, in case the legal basis of processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller.


Right to data portability

The right to data portability implies that the data subject may ask us to provide him or her with personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to ask us to transmit such data directly to another data controller, where this is technically feasible.


Right to withdraw consent

The data subject has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time, if the processing is based on his or her consent (e.g. direct marketing). In any case, revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent prior to revocation.


Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority

The Data Subject also has the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if he/she believes that a processing that concerns him/her violates the GDPR and/or current legislation on the processing of personal data. Please note that in Italy said authority is represented by the Guarantor for the Protection of Personal Data. A Data Subject who is not resident in Italy may lodge a complaint before the designated Control Authority in his or her country of residence.
