- The right to be informed
- The right of access
- The right to rectification
- The right to erasure
- The right to restrict processing
- The right to data portability
- The right to object
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling
Whether or not these rights are applicable depends on your relationship with us. For example, if we are required by law to hold your details, we cannot erase your data upon your request.
How do I exercise these rights?

What if I want access to personal data you process on behalf of one of your clients? Such as a call recording.
Under GDPR, we can only give you access to data that we are controller for. If you make a request for information that we do not control, but rather process for one of our clients, we will inform you in our response to your request and provide you with the details to direct your request towards.
