8. Your rights


8.1 In this Section 8, we have summarised 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 and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of
these rights.

8.2 Your principal rights under data protection law are:

  • (a) the right to access;
  • (b) the right to rectification;
  • (c) the right to erasure;
  • (d) the right to restrict processing;
  • (e) the right to object to processing;
  • (f) the right to data portability;
  • (g) the right to complain to a supervisory authority; and
  • (h) the right to withdraw consent.

8.3 You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your
personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with
certain additional information. That additional information includes details of
the purposes 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.
The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be
subject to a reasonable fee. You can access your personal data by visiting
https://www.dankbrothers.eu/en/my-account when logged into our website.

8.4 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.

8.5 In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data
without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no
longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or
otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you
object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law;
the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have
been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to
erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for
exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance
with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal
claims.

8.6 In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your
personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the
personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer
need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require
personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and
you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.
Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store
your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your
consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the
protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of
important public interest.

8.7 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.

8.8 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct
marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you
make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this
purpose.

8.9 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for
scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds
relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the
performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

8.10 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:

  • (a) consent; or
  • (b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to

which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to
entering into a contract,
and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to
receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and
machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would
adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

8.11 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data
protection laws, you have a legal right to 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.

8.12 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. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the
withdrawal.

8.13 You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by
written notice to us, in addition to the other methods specified in this Section
