Your rights over the personal data we hold

Under certain circumstances you have rights to control the personal data we hold about you. We have listed the most relevant rights below.

  • Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it.       
  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "Data Subject Access Request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

There are more rights, but some are not relevant for the personal data held by Superfos. You can see the complete list of rights in the General Data Protection Regulation, chapter 3.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please send an e-mail to stating your name, the right or rights you want to exercise and the reason or reasons for this. We will then return to you with further information. 

With regard to access requests, we will provide the information to you within one month of the request.  In the event of information not being available within this time period, we will contact you and provide an explanation as to why there is a delay.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
