C. Your Rights

You have the following rights in relation to your personal data, in accordance with GDPR requirements and applicability to Cerevance as a data processor:

Right of access: You can ask us Cerevance to provide you with information about our processing of your personal data and provide reasonable access to your personal data.

Right to rectification: If the personal data we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you are entitled to request to have it rectified.

Right to erasure: You can ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no lawful reason for us continuing to store or process it, where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons that will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Right to restrict processing: You can ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data if: (i) you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (ii) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (iii) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it, as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Right to object: Where we are relying on a legitimate interest for data processing but there is something about your particular situation, you have the right to object to processing if you believe it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.

Right to data portability: You have the right in certain circumstances to ask us to provide you, or a third party you have chosen, with your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information for which you initially provided consent for Cerevance to use, or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Right to withdraw consent at any time: Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing conducted before you withdraw your consent.

To do this, you may contact us or submit a complaint to the Supervisory Authority in your jurisdiction:  Please note that some of these rights may be limited where we have an overriding interest or legal obligation to continue to process the personal data, or where certain exemptions apply. In order to exercise your rights, please contact Cerevance in writing by one of the methods set out under “Contact Us” above.

D.    How does Cerevance protect personal data if transferred internationally?

We may transfer your personal data to recipients outside of the EEA and/or UK. Some of these recipients are located in countries for which either the European Commission and/or UK Government (as and where applicable) has issued adequacy decisions, in which case, the recipient’s country is recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection under UK and/or European data protection laws, and the transfer is therefore permitted under Article 45 of the GDPR.

Some recipients of your personal data may be located in countries outside the EEA and/or the UK for which the European Commission or UK Government (as and where applicable) has not issued adequacy decisions in respect of the level of data protection in such countries (“Restricted Countries”). For example, the United States is a Restricted Country. Where we transfer your personal data to a recipient in a Restricted Country, we will either:

Enter into appropriate data transfer agreements based on so-called Standard Contractual Clauses approved from time-to-time under GDPR Art. 46 by the European Commission, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or UK Government (as and where applicable); or

Rely on other appropriate means permitted by the EU/UK GDPR, which establish that such recipients will provide an adequate level of data protection and that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.

You may contact us in writing by one of the methods set out under the “Contact us” provision above, if you would like further information on the specific mechanism used for transferring your personal data outside of the EEA.
