The data controller shall inform of any rectification or deletion of personal data or the limitation of its processing performed under article 16, article 17, section 1, and article 18 to each of the recipients who have been sent the personal data, unless it is impossible or demands unreasonable effort. The controller will inform the data subject about said recipients if requested.

Withdrawal of consent: The data subject, who had previously given their consent to process their personal data, may equally withdraw it just as easily. The withdrawal of consent will not result in illegality of the previous processing.

The data subject shall have the right to make a complaint to the competent Control authority.

When personal data is to be later processed for a different purpose, the controller shall inform the data subject of such activity.

Security measures: The Data Controller declares that he/she has undertaken the technical and organisational measures necessary to guarantee the safety of the data and prevent its alteration, loss, unauthorised processing or access, taking into account the level of technology available, the nature of stored data and risks to which it is exposed, coming either from human action or the physical or natural environment.
