When we collect and use your personal data, you have a number of rights that you can exercise as described below.

You have the right to access your personal data, which means that you can ask us to provide you with information about the personal data we have about you. You can even request a copy of your personal data.

You have the right to ask us to correct your personal data if you can prove that the personal data we process about you is incorrect, incomplete or out of date.

If we have asked for your consent to the collection and use of your personal data, for example to send you newsletters, you have the right to withdraw this previously given consent.
