Learn more about how to exercise your data protection rights.
When your personal data are processed by the EEA, you have the right:
- to know about it;
- to access the information and have it rectified without delay if it is inaccurate or incomplete;
- to ask to have it blocked under certain circumstances;
- to object to it being processed if you think the processing is unfair and unlawful and ask for it to be deleted;
- to request that any of the above changes be communicated to other parties to whom your data have been disclosed;
- not to be subject to automated decisions (made solely by machines) affecting you, as defined by law.
These rights are outlined in Articles 14 to 24 of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725.
Exercise your data protection rights:
If EEA is processing your personal data and you would like to exercise your data protection rights:
- Please sent us a written request;
- You can send your request to the EEA by post in a sealed envelope or use our application form;
- Your request should contain a detailed description of the data or information you wish to have access to;
- You must provide a copy of an identification document to confirm your identity, for example a passport, an ID card or a driving licence. The document should contain an identification number, country of issue, period of validity and your full name. Any other data contained in the copy of the identification document (e.g. photo, personal characteristics, date and place of birth, address) will not be processed and may thus be blacked out;
- Our use of the information contained in the copy of your identification document is strictly limited: the data will only be used to verify your identity;
- The copy of your identification document will be stored for a maximum period of three months from the date of receipt of your request.
You can appeal at any time to the European Data Protection Supervisor if you feel that your rights under Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 have been infringed upon as a result of the processing of your personal data by the EEA.
