13.1 At any point while we are in possession of your personal data, you, data protection laws give you a number of rights. You can exercise these rights at any time by contacting us at dpo@eidohealthcare.com. You should be aware that all of these rights apply in all circumstances but we will consider each request individually and if any right does not apply, we will explain why.

13.1.2 Right to rectification your personal data. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

13.1.3 Right to be forgotten. This enables you, in certain circumstances, to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to restriction 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, we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

13.1.6 Right to object to your personal data being processed.  Where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and you want to object to processing. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. However where you object to us processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes we will always comply.

13.1.7 Right to withdraw consent. Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data you can withdraw your consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.


13.2 Where your personal data has been disclosed to a third party (as stated in paragraph 9.1.2 above), any request received from you in connection with your rights set out above will also be shared with such relevant third party if required.
