What are your data protection rights?

The right to erasure – You have the right to request that RSCJ International erase your personal data, under certain conditions.

Given the sensitive nature of erasing personal data, GDPR Article 17(1) requires certain conditions to be met before a request may be considered. For example, if you feel your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we originally collected it; if you no longer consent to our processing of your personal data; if you object to our processing of your personal data (as is your right under Article 21 of the GDPR); if you feel your personal data has been unlawfully processed; if you feel we are subject to a legal obligation of the EU or Member State that requires the erasure of your personal data; or if you are a child, you represent a child, or you were a child at the time of the data processing and you feel your personal data was used to offer you information society services. Please note that where erasure would adversely affect freedom of expression, contradict a legal obligation, act against the public interest in the area of public health, act against the public interest in the area of scientific or historical research, or prohibit the establishment of a legal defense or exercise of other legal claims, we may not be able to erase the information you requested, in accordance with article 17(3) of the GDPR. In such cases you will be informed promptly and given full reasons for that decision. While in most cases we will be happy to erase the personal data you request, we nevertheless reserve the right, in accordance with Article 12(5) of the GDPR, to refuse the request if it is considered to be “manifestly unfounded or excessive.” Adopted from https://gdpr.eu/right-to-erasure-request-form/
