We will provide you free of charge with a copy of your personal data, but we may charge you a fee to cover our administrative costs if you request further copies of the same information.

  • Right of correction

We will comply with your request to correct incomplete or inaccurate parts of your personal data, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new information you provide us.

We will respond to your written request as soon as possible and no later than 30 days from receiving it.
