The GDPR guarantees the Data Subject a series of rights that can be exercised by notifying the Foundation at the address given in paragraph 1.

A brief description of the Data Subject’s rights concerning the processing of personal data follows.

  • The right of access allows the Data Subject to obtain confirmation of whether or not the Foundation is processing their personal data and, if necessary, to obtain access to such data and related information;

  • The right of rectification enables the Data Subject to have inaccurate personal data amended without undue delay and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have incomplete data supplemented;

  • The right to erasure allows the Data Subject to have the data erased without undue delay (e.g. when the personal data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected), without prejudice to exceptions provided for in applicable legislation (e.g. when the retention of data is necessary to fulfil the Data Controller’s legal obligations). This right does not extend to the lawfulness of data processing based on consent given before its revocation.

  • The right to data portability allows the Data Subject, in certain circumstances provided for by applicable legislation, to receive in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format the personal data concerning them as provided to the Foundation.

  • The right to restriction of processing allows the Data Subject to limit the processing of their personal data. In such cases, the Foundation may continue to process the Data Subject’s data, but only under certain circumstances (e.g. to exercise its right of defence and to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities);

  • The right to object to processing allows the Data Subject, in certain circumstances pursuant to applicable legislation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning them, unless there are freedoms, rights or overriding legitimate reasons for the Foundation to continue such processing.
