You also have the right to ask us to stop processing personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
    • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
    • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.
