Your rights

SCS shall provide any data subject, upon request, with information as to whether and, if so, which personal data concerning him or her is being processed (right to confirmation, right to information).

At your request:

To make a request to exercise a right described in this section, for example if you no longer wish to receive email newsletters from us or wish to delete your account, use the relevant function on our website or contact our Data Protection Officer or a member of staff as detailed in section 2, Contact.

If we do not comply with a request, we will inform you of the reasons. For example, we may legally refuse to erase if your personal data is still needed for the original purposes, if the processing is based on a compelling legal basis or where we have an overriding interest of our own (for example, in the case of litigation against the data subject).

If we claim an overriding interest in processing towards you, you still have the right to object to the processing, provided that a different balance of interests arises from your particular situation compared to other data subjects (right to object) . This could be the case, for example, if you are a person of public interest or the processing creates a risk that you will be harmed by third parties.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your request, you have the right to complain to a competent supervisory authority, for example in your country of residence or at the registered office of SCS (right to complain).
