7. Your rights:

Dans certaines circonstances, et expressément sous réserve de la loi applicable, vous pouvez avoir le droit de :

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This allows you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This allows you to ask us to delete or remove personal information when there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information when you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).


  • Object to the processing of your personal information when we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object when we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.


  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This allows you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.


  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.


  • Withdraw consent at any time where you have provided your consent to the collection, processing, and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time.


If you want to review, verify, correct, or request the erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us using the details provided in the "Contact Us" section below.

We will respond to your request within the timeframe required by applicable law. Please note that we may also need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

You may not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights above). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
