However, you need to keep in mind that we will evaluate a request for deletion against:

  • Our overriding interests or the overriding interests of any other third party, and
  • Legal or regulatory obligations or administrative or judicial orders which contradict such deletion.

A request to exercise a right will not be construed as consent with the processing of your personal data beyond what is required for handling your request. Such request should clearly state which right you wish to exercise and the reasons for it if such is required. It should also be dated and signed and accompanied by a digitally scanned copy of your valid identity card proving your identity.
