III. Your legal rights

In your capacity as data subjects, you have a series of rights including:

Right of access: Allows you to be informed, upon request, as to whether your personal data is being processed by DHA, and, if the case, to obtain access to and relevant details of the processing activities and/or personal data.

Right to rectification: Allows you to have personal data rectified if you find it to be inaccurate. This right also enables you to complete your personal data, if the case may be.

Right to erasure (the right to be forgotten): Allows you to obtain erasure of your personal data in certain situations. This would be the case, for example, if the data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they have been collected.

In some cases, we may not be able to process your request and have your personal data erased, due to compliance with laws in force or due to our legitimate interest to keep such data – such as defensing a right in a judicial proceeding.

Right to restriction: Allows you to obtain restriction (i.e., limitation) of the processing of your personal data in certain cases (for example, when you challenge the accuracy of your personal data, or where you have objected to our processing);

Right to object: Allows you to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your specific situation, where we are processing your personal data to pursue our legitimate interests.

Right to data portability: Allows you to receive your personal data in an electronic, structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format and have your personal data transmitted directly from us to another data controller or entity – without hindrance from us.

If you expressed your consent with respect to processing personal data, you may withdraw such consent at any time with future effects. Consent withdrawal does not affect the legality of a processing operation performed based on such consent before it was withdrawn or of a processing operation performed on another basis (i.e., the legitimate interest).

Despite our best efforts to guarantee the protection and integrity of your data, we cannot fully rule out the possibility of any contradictions regarding the nature of the use of your data use. If you consider that we are unlawfully using your data, you may file a complaint at the Romanian Data Protection Authority or you can contact us first so that together we can resolve your complaint or request.

IV. Disclosure of Personal Data

As a rule, your personal data may not be disclosed by DHA to third parties, and we have taken appropriate organizational and technical measures to ensure protection of your personal data.

Nevertheless, if it is in your interest and only if this becomes necessary, we may disclose the relevant personal data to the courts of law or other jurisdictional bodies or relevant authorities, in the context of providing the services you have requested from us.

Please note that we may not assume any liability of any kind for the disclosure of information due to errors in the data transfer and/or unauthorized access by third parties (i.e., hacking of e-mail accounts, telephone, interception of fax messages or other malware).

V. Recipients of your personal data

The categories of data recipients may be one or more of the following:

Some or more of the above recipients of your personal data may be located abroad or outside the EU/ EEA. We cannot rule out the possibility that the level of data protection in countries outside the EU/EEA may not be similar to the level of protection in Romania. Under these circumstances, we will transfer your personal data only to countries for which the EU Commission decided that they have an appropriate level of data protection. In any case, we will take measures to ensure that all recipients maintain an appropriate level of data protection.
