13. What are your privacy rights and how can you exercise them?

13.1. Overview of your privacy rights

Your right of access

You have the right to ask us at any time whether or not we are processing your Personal Data and, if we are processing it, to consult such Data and to receive additional information concerning:

the purposes for which we process it;

the relevant categories of Personal Data;

the recipients or categories of recipients (including recipients in third countries);

if possible, the retention period or, if not possible, the criteria for determining this period;

the existence of your privacy rights;

the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority;

the information we have about the source of the data if we obtain Personal Data via a third party; and

the existence of an automatic decision-making process.

You also have the right to obtain a free copy of the processed Data, in an understandable form.

Your right to rectification of your Personal Data

You have the right to have incomplete, erroneous, inadequate or outdated Personal Data corrected immediately, either online via your user account by making the necessary changes yourself, or by contacting us directly at the e-mail address following: info@tase.lu

To keep your Data up to date, we kindly ask you to notify us of any changes, such as moving house, changing your e-mail address or changing your identity card.

Your right to erasure of Data (the “right to be forgotten”)

You have the right, in the following cases, to have your Personal Data erased/deleted:

your Personal Data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed by TASE Research SARL;

you have withdrawn your consent to the processing and there is no other legal basis for the processing on the part of TASE Research SARL;

you have validly exercised your right of opposition and there is no other legal basis for the processing on the part of TASE Research SARL which prevails;

your Personal Data has been unlawfully processed;

your Personal Data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation;

your Personal Data was collected while you were still a minor.

Please take into account that we cannot always delete all the Personal Data requested, for example when their processing is essential for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or because we are legally obliged to do so. We will provide you with more information about this in our response to your request.

Your right to restriction of processing

You have the right to obtain the limitation of the processing of your Personal Data if one of the following elements applies:

you dispute the accuracy of this Personal Data: their use is then limited for a period allowing TASE Research SARL to check the accuracy of the Data;

the processing of your Data is unlawful: instead of requesting the deletion of your Data, you request that their use be limited;

TASE Research SARL no longer needs your Data for the initial purposes of the processing, but you need it for the recognition, exercise or defense of legal rights: instead of requesting the deletion of the Data, their use is limited to the recognition, exercise, or defense of legal rights;

as long as no decision has been taken regarding the exercise of your right to object to processing, you request the limitation of the use of your Personal Data.

Your right to portability of Personal Data

You have the right to “recover” your Personal Data, for example to be able to change provider more easily. This is only possible for Personal Data that you yourself have provided to TASE Research SARL, on the basis of an authorization or the Service entrusted to TASE Research SARL. In all other cases, you cannot therefore benefit from this right (for example, when the processing of your data occurs on the basis of a legal obligation).

Two aspects are linked to this right:

you can ask TASE Research SARL to retrieve the relevant Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format; and

you can ask TASE Research SARL to transmit the Personal Data concerned directly to another data controller. In this context, you are personally responsible for the accuracy and security of the (e-mail) address you provide for the transfer. TASE Research SARL has the right to refuse your request if the transfer is technically impossible.

Your right to object to the processing of your Personal Data

You have the right, under your particular situation, to object to the processing of your Personal Data when the processing is in the context of the legitimate interest of TASE Research SARL or in the context of the general interest. TASE Research SARL will suspend the processing of your Personal Data, unless TASE Research SARL can demonstrate that there are legitimate and compelling reasons for the processing which prevail over yours or if the processing of the Personal Data is linked to the observation, the exercise, or defense of legal rights (for example, filing a claim in court).

Your right to withdraw your consent

You can withdraw your consent to the processing of your Personal Data at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not affect the validity of the processing operations prior to the withdrawal.

13.2. In practice

How can I exercise my privacy rights?

You can send us an e-mail at: info@tase.lu. In order to exercise your right of access and to avoid any unlawful publication of your Personal Data, we must verify your identity. In case of doubt or inaccuracy, we will first ask you for additional information (preferably a copy of the front of your identity card).

Are there any fees?

You can exercise your privacy rights free of charge, unless your request is manifestly unfounded or exaggerated, in particular because of its repetitive nature. In this case, we have the right and the choice – in accordance with the legislation relating to the protection of privacy – (i) to charge you reasonable compensation (taking into account the administrative costs associated with the provision of the information or the communication requested and the costs associated with taking the requested action), or (ii) to refuse to comply with your request.

In what format will I receive a response?

If you submit your request electronically, the information will be transmitted electronically if possible, unless your request stipulates otherwise. In any case, we send you a concise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible answer.

When will I receive a response?

We react as soon as possible to your request, and in any case within one month of receiving your request. Depending on the complexity of the requests and their number, this period may, if necessary, be extended by two months. In the event of an extension of the deadline, we will inform you within one month of receipt of the request.

What can I do if TASE Research SARL does not respond to my request?

We will always inform you, in our response, about the possibility of lodging a complaint with the supervisory authority and of appealing to the judge.
