You have the right to see all the personal information that concerns you. This includes a right to access information within 1 month of making a request for this.

However, all other processing will stop and complete deletion will take place after termination of the overriding obligation.

Personal data will not be transferred outside the European Union unless it is subject to strict controls that the Group is subject to under national data protection and security laws.
