      1. The right to access:  you have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your Personal Data and, where we do, to access the Personal Data.

The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee;
      2. The right to object to processing: you have the right to object to us processing your Personal Data, citing personal reasons; however, understand that we may still process your Personal Data if we have lawful grounds to do so, but only if our interests in processing your Personal Data are not overridden by your rights, interests, or freedoms;
      3. The right to rectification: 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;

      5. The right to erasure: you have the right to request that the Company erase your Personal Data under certain conditions. However, this can sometimes be a limited right where our other duties prevent us from doing so.

      6. The right to restrict processing: you have the right to request that the Company restrict the processing of your Personal Data under certain conditions;
      7. The right to withdraw consent: to the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your Personal Data is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. However, withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing of your Personal Data before the withdrawal.
    2. You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your Personal Data by contacting our Customer Support. You must note that prior to accessing and making changes to your Рersonal Data, we will need to verify your identity properly.

  10. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA
    1. We may need to transfer your Рersonal Data to countries which are located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), for the purpose of providing the Services to you.
