EU PRIVACY RIGHTS
Users based in the European Union have the following legal rights in respect of their personal information:
a) The right to require Stelac to confirm whether or not their information is being processed, the purpose of any such processing, the recipients of any information that has been disclosed, the period for which their information is to be stored and whether any automated decision-making processes are used in relation to their information;
b) The right to require Stelac to rectify inaccurate information without undue delay;
c) Where Stelac has relied on the ‘consent’ basis for processing that information (see ‘Legal Basis for Processing Your Information’ above), the right to withdraw their consent at any time. This right to withdraw consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal;
d) The right to request the erasure of their information in certain circumstances. You can make a request for erasure where:
(i) the information is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected;
(ii) where the processing of the information is based on the user’s consent (and the other circumstances described in the ‘Legal Basis for Processing Your information’ and ‘Disclosure to Third Parties’ sections above no longer apply), if the user withdraws his or her consent; or
(iii) where the personal data is processed by Stelac solely on the basis of our ‘legitimate interest’ referred to in ‘Legal Basis for Processing Your Information’ above (and the other legal basis set out in that section do not apply), if the user objects to the processing of his or her personal data and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing (such as, for example, where the processing of the data is required to meet statutory obligations or for the defence of legal claims).
Where Stelac has disclosed the information of a European Union user to a third party and the user requests the erasure or rectification of the data, Stelac will take all reasonable steps to inform the third party of such request;
e) The right to require Stelac to restrict its processing of a user’s personal data in certain circumstances, such as where the accuracy of that data is disputed or an objection has been raised. In such circumstances, Stelac will only process that information with the express consent of the user, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest;
f) Where data is processed based on user’s consent or to fulfil a contractual obligation, the user has the right to receive his or her personal data from Stelac in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format;
g) The right to object to the processing of personal data where:
(iv) Stelac relies solely on the ‘legitimate interest’ basis for processing that data, in which case we will be legally required to stop processing the user’s information unless we have compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the user’s privacy rights and interests; or
(v) the information is used for direct marketing purposes, in which case we will immediately stop processing the user’s information for such purposes;
h) Users have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority of the EU member state where the user resides.
The above legal rights are subject to various conditions and exceptions including where the data is used for statistical or scientific research purposes and the exercise of the right would prevent such purposes from being attained or would seriously impair their attainment. Where the records of data held by a controller do not enable it to identify specific individuals, the European Union laws do not require that the controller should undertake further processing in order to respond to any of the above rights.
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Insofar as it concerns the data of individuals in the European Union, we rely on the following lawful basis for the processing of your personal data:
