These rights are not absolute and are subject to various conditions under applicable data protection and privacy legislation and the laws and regulations to which we are subject. In some cases, the exercise of these rights (for example, erasure, objection, restriction or the withholding or withdrawing of consent to processing) may make it impossible for us to provide services.

Right Not to be Subject to Decisions Based Solely on Automated Processing that Produce Legal Effects. We do not make decisions based solely on automated processing—including profiling—that produces legal effects or similarly affects you.
Right to Complain to a Supervisory Authority. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a Supervisory Authority if you believe that our Processing of Personal Data relating to you is inconsistent with our obligations under the GDPR.
