Your rights

You have the following rights:

  • To be informed about the personal data we collect from you and use;
  • To obtain access to, and copies of, the personal data that we hold about you;
  • To require that we do not begin or that we cease processing your personal data;
  • To require us not to send you marketing communications;
  • To require us to delete your personal data, subject to our legal obligations;
  • To require us to restrict our data processing activities;
  • To receive from us the personal data we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal data to another data controller;
  • To require us to correct the personal data we hold about you if it is inaccurate or incomplete at any time;
  • To require that we do not subject you to automated decision-making that uses your personal data; and

You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Cayman Islands Ombudsman or with a supervisory authority in the EU Member State of your habitual residence or place of work or in the place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you and carried out by us or our service providers infringes the DPL or the GDPR respectively.
