Under data protection legislation, individuals who live in specific areas have certain rights related to the processing of personal data. Members may exercise these rights individually. These rights include:

● Right of access - right to request access to information about you that we hold.
● Right to rectification - have your data corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete
Right to erasure - also known as ‘right to be forgotten’ allows you to be able to request the erasure of personal data in some circumstances such as where it is no longer needed by us for the purpose for which it was collected or you have withdrawn your consent.
● Right to restrict processing - the right to request the restriction or suppression of your personal data in certain circumstances for example, where you have told us the data is inaccurate and we are in the process of checking this. In such circumstances we will continue to store your data but will not process it further until we have checked and confirmed whether the data is inaccurate. Not, like the right to erasure, the right to restrict processing is not an absolute right.
● Right to data portability - allows you to receive personal data that you have provided us in a structured, commonly used machine readable format. It also allows you the right to request us to transmit this data to another controller.
● Right to object - allows you, in certain circumstances, to object to the processing of your personal data. For example, you may object to processing of your data for direct marketing or to object to automated individual decision-making (making a decision solely by automated means without any human involvement) or profiling (automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual). Another example would be to object to processing of Personal Data that is likely to cause, or is causing, damage or distress.
● Right to withdraw consent - in those instances in which the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right (subject to age provisions) to withdraw that consent.Please note that the processing will end from the moment the withdrawal takes place without any effect on the processing that took place prior such withdrawal.
● Right to complain - while the first point of contact related to the processing of your personal data or in exercising any of the rights identified above should be us (see Point of Contact below), you also have the right to directly contact the Supervisory Authority in Switzerland which is:
Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner
CH- 3003 Berne

In these cases, we may not be able to fulfill the service you need, or do so in a limited way, or be able to comply with a statutory obligation.
