When you send your request by electronic means, the information is provided in a commonly used electronic form, unless otherwise asked.
This right to obtain a copy of your data is without prejudice to the rights and freedoms of others. To this end, we will ask you to provide us with a proof of your identity.

4.4 RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION

You shall have the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of data that might be inaccurate. Considering the purposes of the processing, you shall have the right to have incomplete data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

4.5 RIGHT TO ERASURE (“RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN”)

This right enables you to obtain without undue delay the erasure of your data. We have the obligation to erase your data where one of the following grounds applies:
a) Your data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
b) You withdraw consent on which the processing is based, and there is no other legal ground for the processing;

g) However, beware that this right shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
1. for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
2. for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which we are subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
3. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes;
4. for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

You shall have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your data where one of the following applies:
a) You contest the accuracy of your data (for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of your data);
b) The processing is unlawful, and you oppose the erasure of your data and request the restriction of their use instead;
c) We no longer need your data for the purposes of the processing, but you still need them for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims;
d) You object to processing pursuant to your right to object pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds for processing override yours.
Where processing has been restricted, data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
A data subject who has obtained restriction of processing of his or her data shall be informed before the restriction of processing is lifted.

b) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising your right to data portability, you shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one data controller to another, where technically feasible.
The exercise of the right to data portability shall be without prejudice to the right to erasure. That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.
The right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of third parties.

4.9 RIGHT TO OBJECT

You shall have the right to object:
a) on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time, to processing of your data, including profiling;
b) Therefore, we shall no longer process your data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims;

We shall bring this right to your attention and present it clearly and separately from any other information at the latest at the time of the first communication.
In the context of the use of information society services, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
Where data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, you, on grounds relating to your particular situation, shall have the right to object to processing of your data, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

4.10 AUTOMATED INDIVIDUAL DECISION-MAKING, INCLUDING PROFILING

You shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which would produce legal effects or significantly affect you.
This right shall not apply if the decision:
a) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller;
b) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject, and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or;
c) is based on your explicit consent.
BICE shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on our part, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.
