  • Communication of the data undergoing processing and of any available information as to their source;
  • Knowledge of the logic involved in any automated decision process concerning him or her. 

The Data Subject shall have the right of access to his or her data and the right to rectification of any inaccurate or incomplete personal data. If the processing operation is unlawful the Data Subject has the right to request deletion of that data. Please write to info@ebmt.org
