Personal data protection
Procedure for the exercise of the Rights of ARCO .
The current legislation on data protection, recognizes citizens’ rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition to their personal data.
To facilitate the exercise of these rights, we have put at your disposal the necessary information, as well as the different free forms in case you have need of them.
Personal data is any information that allows you to be identified or makes you identifiable. The fundamental right to data protection recognizes the right of the citizen to control their personal data and to have it available to them and make decisions concerning it.
1 – What are these rights?
Right of access → It is the right of the affected person to obtain information on whether their own personal data is being handled correctly, as well as having the information available regarding the origin of said data and the communication that is done or will be done in the future regarding it. By virtue of the right of access, the affected person may obtain from the data controller information relating to specific data, data included in a certain file, or all of their data submitted for processing. In no case may the exercise of the right of access imply access to personal data of third parties.
Rectification → It is the right of the affected person to modify personal data that has proven to be inaccurate or incomplete.
Cancellation → When the interested party has proof or knowledge that their data is inadequate or excessive, they can request cancellation.
Opposition → The interested party also has the right to oppose the processing of their personal data when there are well-founded and legitimate reasons related to a specific personal situation and a law does not dictate otherwise.
2 – How to exercise these rights
The rights on personal data are extremely personal, and must be processed by the affected party against the person responsible for the file, so it is necessary to prove their identity to the responsible person.
The legal representative of the interested party may also exercise the rights on behalf of the latter, when the interested party is in a situation of disability or is a minor and thus this prevents them from exercising their personal rights. In this case it will be necessary for the legal representative to prove this condition.
