Do you have access to your own personal data?

Do you have access to your own personal data?

Yes. If you want to find out whether Essange Reagents holds your personal data, and if so, which data, you can submit a request for access, accompanied by copy of a valid identity document (passport, driver license, ID card). Essange Reagents will ensure that you can access your data within one month after submitting your request. Of course, you will only be able to access your own data and nobody else’s data.

If you would like to visit us and access your data, two rules apply:
•    You must make an appointment with Essange Reagents in advance (if you request access in writing);
•    You must provide proof of identity with a valid identity document (passport, driving licence or ID card).
If you wish, you can receive a hard copy of your personal data.

Would you like to have your personal data rectified or erased?

If you think that your data is incorrect or has been processed incorrectly, you can submit a request to rectify your data. You may also ask Essange Reagents to erase your personal data. You must do this in writing and you must state the reasons for your request.
Your personal data is only erased in certain cases as prescribed by law. This may include cases in which your personal data is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was originally collected, and cases in which the data was unlawfully processed.
If Essange Reagents agrees to your request, Essange Reagents will erase your data or amend it so that it is no longer traceable back to you. Essange Reagents will inform you about this in writing.

Can I transfer my personal data to another organisation?

The right to data portability only applies if you have supplied your personal data to Essange Reagents based on consent or an agreement, and the processing of this data is performed automatically. Most processes carried out by Essange Reagents are not based on this lawful basis.

Can I restrict or lodge an objection against the use of personal data?

As a data subject, you can lodge an objection against the use of personal data if Essange Reagents processes your data on the basis of ‘legitimate interest’. Essange Reagents will then stop using your personal data for this purpose, unless Essange Reagents has mandatory legitimate grounds for the use of the data.

As a data subject, you can also restrict the use of your data for a certain purpose, which involves suspending the processing of your data for a certain period of time.

Circumstances that may give cause for you to exercise this right include:
•    You dispute the accuracy of the data;
•    The processing is unlawful and you do not want the data to be destroyed;
•    You have lodged an objection and are awaiting a response from Essange Reagents.
