We try to deal with your request without undo delay and, in any case, within the period of a month (subject to any extensions of time permitted by law).  Be aware that we may maintain a record of your communications to us to help in any questions raised by you.
Right to object:  this right allows you to object to the processing of your personal data by us, for reasons related to your particular situation when your personal data is being processed for one of the following reasons: (i) our legitimate interests; (ii) to allow us to carry out a task in the public interest or in exercising official authority; (iii)  to send you direct marketing  materials, including definition of profiles;  and (iv)  scientific, historical, investigative or statistical purposes.

 Should you exercise your right to object, we will end the processing of data you object to, unless:

-  we are proceeding in the processing of your data for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.
Right to withdraw consent: If we have obtained your consent to proceed in the processing of your personal data for certain activities (for example, for marketing purposes),  you can withdraw this consent at any time and we will cease to carry out the specific activity that you had previously consented to, unless we consider that there is an alternative reason to justify the continued processing by us of your data for this purpose, if such is the case we will  inform you about this condition.

Right to rectification:  you have the right to ask us to rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we might possess about you. If we shared this personal data with third parties, they will be notified about the rectification unless it is impossible or implies a disproportionate effort.

In cases in which we consider it is reasonable not to satisfy this request, we will explain the reasons for this decision. It is important that the personal information we possess about you is precise and up-to-date. Please inform us if there are any alterations to your personal information during the period in which we retain your data.

 The transfer of data to other countries (countries outside the European Union) only occurs when necessary for the implementation of your orders or requests (for example, invoices or the sending of products), when legally required, or if you have granted express authorisation to this effect. If recourse to providers of services from third party countries is necessary, they are obliged to comply with the written instructions in this matter through the registration of an agreement with European Union type contractual clause clauses for compliance with current data protection in the European Union. Whenever defined by law, you will receive detailed information from us separately. We want to ensure your data is stored and transferred in a safe way. Consequently, we only transfer data out of the European Economic Area EEA (in other words, member states of the European Union, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) when it conforms to the legislation in matters of data protection and the means of transference provide adequate guarantees in relation to your data, for example:
-  through a data transfer contract, which incorporates the type of contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data  by organisations responsible for data processing in the EEE  to an organisation or subcontractor responsible for processing data in jurisdictions that lack adequate data protection laws; or
- through membership to the framework of the US-EU Privacy Shield for the transfer of personal data from EU entities to US entities or any other equivalent agreement relating to other jurisdictions; or
- transferring your data to a country regarding which the European Commission has found there to be an adequate level of data protection through the country’s  legislation; or
-  if you have consented to the transfer of data.
To ensure your personal data receives an adequate level of protection, we apply appropriate procedures with the third parties with whom we are going to share your personal data to ensure that your personal information is processed by these third parties in a consistent manner and one that respects data protection law.
