6. What are your rights regarding your personal data and how to exercise them ?

 

6.1 Your Rights

NG Finance strives to provide you with concise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible information on the conditions for processing your personal data, in clear and simple terms.

 

Respecting the limits provided by the regulations in force, you have the following rights with regards to your personal data:

 

  • Right to information on the processing of your personal data

  • Right of access, rectification and deletion (or “right to forget”) of your personal data

  • Finally, subject to the exceptions provided by applicable law, you have the right to ask NG Finance to delete, as soon as possible, your Personal Data

 

The right of access allows you to obtain from NG Finance confirmation that your personal data have or have not been processed as well as the conditions of such processing, and to receive an electronic copy.

You also have the right to obtain from NG Finance, as soon as possible the rectification of your personal data.

 

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;

  • You wish to withdraw your consent on which the processing of your personal data was based and there is no other basis justifying such processing;

  • You consider and can establish that your personal data has been unlawfully processed;

  • Your personal data must be deleted in accordance with a legal obligation.

 

Right to limit the processing of your personal data

  • The applicable regulations provide that this right may be invoked in certain cases, in particular the following;

  • When you dispute the accuracy of your personal data;

  • When you consider and can establish that the processing of personal data is unlawful, but you oppose the deletion of personal data and demand instead that the processing be limited.

  • Right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data

 

When NG Finance processes your personal data based on your consent, this latter may be withdrawn at any time using the means provided for this purpose (procedure indicated in point 7.2 of this Policy). On the other hand, and in accordance with applicable law, the withdrawal of your consent is only valid for the future and cannot therefore call into question the lawfulness of the processing carried out before this withdrawal.

 

If, despite NG Finance’ efforts to preserve the confidentiality of your personal data, you feel that your rights are not respected, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. A list of control authorities is available on the European Commission’s website.

 

Finally, you have the right to organize the fate of your personal post-mortem data through the adoption of general or specific guidelines. NG Finance is committed to respecting these guidelines. In the absence of directives, NG Finance recognizes the possibility for heirs to exercise certain rights, in particular the right of access, if it is necessary for the settlement of the deceased’s estate; the right to object to the closure of the deceased’s user accounts; and the right to object to the processing of their data.
