  • Right of access — You have the right to obtain confirmation and information about the processing of your Personal Data
  • Right to rectification — You have the right to have any inaccuracies about your Personal Data corrected
  • Right to erasure — You have the right to have your Personal Data deleted (this right is limited to data which according to law and regulation may only be processed with your consent, if you withdraw your consent for processing)

If you want to exercise any of your rights, you may contact Opinodo with such a request using the contact details provided in the “CONTACT US” section below.

Opinodo always ensures that it is permitted to process your Personal Data. Opinodo generally does this by obtaining your consent, however, in limited cases, Opinodo may use a statutory condition to process Personal Data.

If a statutory condition applies allowing Opinodo to process your Personal Data and you withdraw consent to process your Personal Data this will not necessarily mean that Opinodo will cease to process your Personal Data as it may, for example, be under a statutory duty to continue to process your Personal Data for some purposes, e.g. to keep copies of commercial transactions for a minimum of seven years.

RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Opinodo will store Personal Data no longer than necessary for the purpose of the processing activity or as authorized by you. This period may also be based on Opinodo’s or one of Opinodo’s Partner’s contractual commitments to you, applicable periods of limitation (to bring claims) or according to applicable law.

Upon receiving a request from an individual, Opinodo will attempt to provide the requested information within 30 days, providing that the request is such that it can be reasonably responded to in that time frame.

If more time is required, Opinodo will notify you within 30 days.

In certain situations, however, Opinodo may not be able to provide access to some Personal Data. This may occur when:

  • providing access to Personal Data would be likely to reveal Personal Data about a third party;
  • disclosing the information would reveal confidential commercial information; or
  • the information has been collected for the purposes of a legal investigation.

If Opinodo denies an individual’s request for access to their Personal Data, Opinodo will advise the individual of the reason for the refusal.
