- Right of rectification
The Owner guarantees the right to rectification and deletion of personal data to the User.
In accordance with Article 16 of the Regulation, incorrect, inaccurate or irrelevant data may be corrected or deleted at any time. The User first makes the necessary changes himself from his user account, unless they cannot be made independently, in which case the request may be directed to The Owner.
In accordance with Article 19 of the Regulation, the controller shall notify any recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed of any rectification of the personal data, unless such rectification proves impossible or involves disproportionate efforts. The controller shall provide the data subject with information about these recipients if the data subject so requests.
- Right of erasure
The User has the right, in the cases mentioned in Article 17 of the Regulation, to obtain the deletion of his personal data as soon as possible.
Where the Controller has disclosed the personal data and is required to erase it pursuant to the preceding paragraph, the Controller, taking into account available technologies and implementation costs, shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, to notify other controllers processing such personal data that the data subject has been requested by such controllers to erase the connection with such personal data or a copy or reproduction thereof.
The two preceding paragraphs shall not apply to the extent that such processing is necessary:
the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
to comply with a legal obligation to process under Union law or the law of the Member State to which the controller is subject, or to carry out a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

Users have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without preventing The Owner from doing so, in the cases provided for in the Regulation.
When the User exercises his right to data portability under the previous paragraph, he has the right to have personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically possible.
The exercise of the right to data portability does not affect the right to erasure. This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
The right to data portability does not affect the rights and freedoms of third parties.
- Right to object and automated individual decision-making
The User has at all times the right to object to the processing of his/her personal data due to his/her specific situation, including the automation of data by The Owner.

When processing personal data for prospecting purposes, the User has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for such prospecting purposes, including profiling insofar as it relates to such prospecting.
