3. Information about European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We inform your that according to the European General Data Protection Regulation in relation  to your personal data processed by us you have the following rights:

1) Right to information

This right gives you the ability to ask us for information about what your personal data  is being processed and the rationale for such processing. 

2) Right to access

This right gives you the ability to get access to your personal data that is being processed. You can also request copies of the personal data.

3) Right to rectification

This right gives you the ability to ask for modifications to your personal data in case that you believe that your  personal data is not up to date or accurate.

4) Right to withdraw consent

This right gives you the ability to withdraw a previously given consent for the processing of your personal data for a purpose. Please be advised that if you withdraw your consent we won’t be able to provide services to you using our Platform. In this scenario your account will be terminated according to §9 HyperFlow Platform Terms of Service.

5) Right to object

This right gives you the ability to object to the processing of your personal data. Normally, this would be the same as the right to withdraw consent, if consent was appropriately requested and no processing other than legitimate purposes is being conducted. However, a specific scenario would be when you ask us that your personal data should not be processed for certain purposes while a legal dispute is ongoing in court.

6) Right to object to automated processing

This right gives you the ability to object to a decision based on automated processing. Using this right you may ask us to review your request manually, because you can believe that automated processing of your request does not consider your unique situation.
