In this Section 6, we have summarized the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are
complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws

of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the
rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data.
You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the
processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but
only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a
task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the
legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the
personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your
interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely
affect the rights and freedoms of others.

lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of
your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
