    expresses interest in purchasing one of these keys, we will share your name and/or the
    name of any other registered persons. If the interested party is aware of who you are, then

    To be informed about how, why and on what basis that information is processed.

To obtain confirmation that your information is being processed and to obtain access to it
and certain other information, by making a subject access request – your request will be
answered in a maximum period of 7 days.
To have data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
To have data erased if it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was originally
collected/processed, or if there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing (i.e.
the right to be forgotten).
To restrict the processing of personal information where the accuracy of the information is
contested, or the processing is unlawful (buy you do not want the data to be erased), or
where the employer no longer needs the personal information, but you require the data to
establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
To restrict the processing of personal information temporarily where you do not think it is
accurate (and the employer is verifying whether it is accurate), or where you have objected
to the processing (and the employer is considering whether the organisation’s legitimate
grounds override your interests).
