What are your privacy rights?

This section explains your rights in relation to your personal information in more detail.

To exercise any of the rights described below, please contact us via support@Etorfx.com.

ACCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

When can you request access?

You have the right to:

  • Confirm that your personal information is being processed

  • Access your personal information

You can request copies of the paper and electric records about you that we hold, share, or use. To deal with your request, we can request proof of identity and enough personal information to enable us to locate the personal information you request.

When will access not be provided?

We can only provide you with your personal information, not personal information about another person. Also, where access would adversely affect another person’s rights, we are not required to provide this. Due to legal privilege, we may not be able to show you anything that we learned in connection with a claim or legal proceeding.

Please clearly set out in your access request the personal information that you are requesting. If this is not clear, we may come back to you to ask for further personal information by way of clarification.

CORRECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

How can you correct your personal information?

You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal information concerning you. If you tell us that the personal information, we hold on you is incorrect, we will review it and if we agree with you, we will correct our records. If we do not agree with you, we will let you know. If you wish, you can tell us in writing that you believe our records still to be incorrect and we will include your statement when we give your personal information to anyone outside of our company.

You may also have the right to have incomplete personal information completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement. Whether or not this is appropriate in any particular case depending on the purposes for which your Personal information is being processed.

We need to notify any third parties with whom we have shared your personal information that you have made a rectification request. We will take reasonable steps to do this, but if it is not possible or may involve disproportionate effort, we may not be able to do this or ensure they rectify the personal information they hold.

What are the limitations on access to and correcting your personal information?

Generally, we will let you see the personal information that we hold about you, or take steps to correct any inaccurate personal information, if you ask us in writing.

Due to legal privilege, we may not be able to show you anything that we learned in connection with a claim or legal proceeding.

ERASING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

When can you request erasure?

You have a right to have your personal information erased, and to prevent processing, where:

  • the personal information is no longer necessary for the purpose it was originally collected/processed

  • you withdraw consent (where previously provided)

  • you object to the processing and our legitimate interests in being able to keep processing your Personal information do not take priority

  • we have been processing your personal information in breach of data protection laws

  • the personal information has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.

When can we refuse erasure requests?

The right to erasure does not apply where we are required to retain it for legal or regulatory purposes or where your personal information is processed for certain specified reasons, including for the exercise or defence of legal claims.

More importantly, if we have to erase your data, we may not be able to provide you with part or all of our services.

Do we have to tell other recipients of your personal information about your erasure request?

Where we have provided the personal information, you want to be erased to third parties, we need to inform them about your erasure request, so they can erase the personal information in question. We will take reasonable steps to do this, but this may not always be possible or may involve a disproportionate effort.

It may also be that the recipient is not required/able to erase your personal information because one of the exemptions above applies.

RESTRICTING PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

When is restriction available?

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information:

  • Where you disagree with the accuracy of the personal information, we need to restrict the processing until we have verified the accuracy of the personal information

  • When processing is unlawful and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead

  • If we no longer need the personal information but you need this to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim

  • Where you have objected to the processing in the circumstances detailed in paragraph (a) of ‘Objecting to Processing’, and we are considering whether those interests should take priority.

Do we have to tell other recipients of your personal information about the restriction?

Where we have disclosed your relevant personal information to third parties, we need to inform them about the restriction on the processing of your personal information, so that they do not continue to process this.

We will take reasonable steps to do this, but this may not always be possible or may involve a disproportionate effort.

We will also let you know if we decide to lift a restriction on processing.

TAKING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH YOU

When does the right to data portability apply?

The right to data portability only applies:

  • To the personal information you have provided to us (which means, not any other information)

  • Where the processing is based on your consent or for the performance of a contract

  • When processing is carried out by automated means.

When can we refuse requests for data portability?

We can refuse your data portability request if the processing does not satisfy the above criteria. Also, if the personal information concerns more than one individual, we may not be able to transfer this to you if doing so would prejudice that person’s rights.

OBJECTING TO PROCESSING

You can object to processing in the following circumstances:

  • Legitimate interests

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal information concerning you which is based on legitimate interests.

If we can show compelling legitimate grounds for processing your personal information that overrides your interests, rights, and freedoms, or we need your personal information to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims, we can continue to process it. Otherwise, we must stop using the relevant personal information.

  • Direct marketing

If you receive newsletters or other email messages from us, you can opt out at any time free of charge by contacting us via support@Etorfx.com.
