9. ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND RIGHTS AT LAW

9.1. The Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR) gives you the right to access the information that we hold about you. Please note that any demand for access may be subject to payment of a fee of €59 or more which covers our costs in providing you with the information requested (printing, shipping and handling by courier services, etc). Should you wish to receive details that we hold about you or you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws please contact our DPO.
9.2. To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. However, this is not an absolute right. In spite of a request for erasure, we may be justified to keep personal data which we need to keep, e.g. (i) to comply with a legal obligation (for instance, we are required by personal data for VAT reporting purposes); and (ii) in relation to the exercise or defence of any legal claims. When you ask us to delete your personal data, we assume that you do not want to hear from us again. To ensure that we do not send you any special offers in the future, we will retain just enough of your personal data solely for suppression purposes. Other than as described above, we will always comply with your request and do so promptly. We would carry out our best efforts to notify Data Processors – any third parties with whom we have shared your personal data, about your request so that they could also comply. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
9.3. You have the right to transfer your personal data from one organisation to another. If you ask for a data transfer, we will give you a copy of your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable form (e.g. a JSON or CSV file format). We can provide the personal data to you directly or, if you request, to another organisation. Please note that we are not required to adopt our processing systems to be compatible with another organisation, so it may be that the recipient organisation cannot automatically use the personal data we provide. When making a transfer request, it would be helpful if you can identify exactly what personal data you wish us to transfer.

Some of these messages are required, for example service-related messages (such as transactional messages or legal notices). Other messages are not required, such as newsletters.
