One key right is the right to stop processing (right to object): This allows you to do three things:

The other rights are:

  • Right of access:
    In accordance with the provisions of the data protection laws, you have certain rights to request a copy of your own personal information held by Zabaldano Avocats.

Please note that where you ask us to restrict processing, we can still store it subject to the retention period, and use it to establish or defend legal claims, which may run beyond the retention period stated.
