You have the right to access the personal information that we hold about you by requesting a copy of your personal data free of charge.
Upon verification of your identity, your request will be processed by our HR Team.
If we consider that your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive (for example, because you requested a copy of your data numerous times in a short period of time), we may refuse to act or charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs for providing you the information.
In certain cases, you may also be entitled to request copies of personal information that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and/or request us to transmit this information to another controller (where technically feasible).

If you no longer want us to use your information, you can request that we erase your personal information from our systems.
Please note that in case you request the erasure or if we decide ourselves to start the erasure process at the end of our retention period(s), we may have to retain and use some of your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with any relevant legal obligations.
7.4. Right to object
We process your data for the reasons explained in Section 3 ‘WHY DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?’. Applicable law may entitle you to require us not to process your personal information for certain specific purposes where such processing is based on legitimate interest. If you object to such processing, we will stop processing your personal data for these purposes.
In specific situations, we may have to refuse the execution of your request. This would be the case where we have legitimate grounds to continue such processing or if we have to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
This means that you have the right to object to the continuance of an-going recruitment process or to the storage and use of your personal information that enables us to contact you for future job opportunities.
7.5. Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request that we stop processing your data, while we resolve any issues.

o You have objected to a processing activity based on legitimate interest(s): in this case, you can require the processing operation to be put on hold while we verify the grounds for processing.
o You consider that the processing is unlawful but you object to erasure and request restriction, instead.
o We have no further need for the data but you require it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
Despite your request, we may continue to process your data if we have to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims. We will notify you before lifting a restriction.
