When necessary, we share your personal data with third parties whose services we are using (e.g. hosting services such as cloud providers, security service providers). We do this when using various IT systems and operations.  

We may transfer personal data to countries that are not in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, if such transfer occurs and the country does not fall under a Commission adequacy decision, GEB will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place that provide sufficient protection for your fundamental privacy rights and freedoms. Such safeguards include, but are not limited to, Standard Contractual Clauses, as approved by the European Commission.

Which rights do you have and how can you exercise them?

GEB respects to the fullest extent the rights you have as a data subject. These rights include:

  • The right of access

If you can prove your identity, you have the right to access all the information GEB has on you. This includes whether or not we have any data on you, the purposes for which we process your data, the types of personal data concerned, the recipients to whom your personal data will be disclosed and the rights you have under the GDPR.  

You can exercise you right of access by sending an e-mail to privacy@geb.com.  We will provide you with one copy free of charge. For any additional copies, we may charge an administrative fee.

  • The right of rectification

You have the right to rectify inaccurate, incorrect or outdated personal data we may have on you. Where personal data is incomplete, you have the right to complete it, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

You can exercise your right of rectification by sending an e-mail to privacy@geb.com

You have the right to have your personal data erased without undue delay if one of the following conditions applies:

  • The personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected;
  • You withdraw your consent, if the legal basis for processing is consent;
  • You exercise your right to object and we have no overriding legitimate grounds to continue the processing;
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed;
  • We have to erase your personal data to be in compliance with a legal obligation under EU or Member State law.

You can exercise your right of erasure by sending an e-mail to privacy@geb.com. It is up to GEB to assess the presence of the abovementioned criteria.

  • The right of restriction

  • For the period enabling us to verify the accuracy of your personal data, if you have contested the accuracy of the personal data;
  • The processing is unlawfully and you request the restriction of processing instead of the erasure of the data concerned;
  • We no longer need the personal data for the purposes for which it was collected but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;

You have the right to object, at any time and on grounds specifically related to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data provided that we process the data concerned based on our legitimate interest. In such case we will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Furthermore you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you.

You can exercise your right to object and not be subject to automated decision making by by sending an e-mail to privacy@geb.com.

  • The right to withdraw your consent
