4.2. Right to access

If you are able to prove your identity, you have the right to obtain information about the processing of your data.

4.3. Right of rectification

Inaccurate or incomplete personal data may be corrected. The User is primarily responsible for making the necessary changes in their ‘U ser account’, but you may also make a written request to us.

4.4. Right to deletion of data (or “right to be forgotten”)

You also have the right to delete your personal data in the following situations:

  • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes of the processing;

SOFICO decides, on its own initiative, on the existence of the aforementioned criteria ;

4.6. Right to object

You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. SOFICO shall cease processing your personal data, unless it is able to demonstrate that there is a compelling legal reason for said processing, which supersedes your right to object.
