7.2 The right to access, rectify, delete your Personal Data. The right of access allows you to obtain from us confirmation that your Personal Data has or has not been processed, as well as the conditions of such processing, and to receive an electronic copy  of all of your personal information we maintain (for any additional copy, we are entitled to demand payment of any reasonable fees based on the administrative costs incurred).
7.3  The right to obtain from us the rectification of your Personal Data.
Subject to the exceptions provided by applicable law, you have the right to ask us to delete your Personal Data, when one of the following grounds applies:
Your Personal Data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
You wish to withdraw your consent, on which the processing of your Personal Data was based, and there is no other basis justifying such processing;
You consider and can establish that your Personal Data has been unlawfully processed;
Your Personal Data must be deleted in accordance with a legal obligation.

When you dispute the accuracy of your personal data;
When you consider and can establish that the processing of Personal Data is unlawful but you oppose the deletion of Personal Data and demand instead that the processing be limited;
When we no longer require your Personal Data but it is still necessary for you to establish, exercise or defend your legal rights;
When you object to the processing that would be based on the legitimate interest of the controller, during the verification whether the legitimate grounds pursued by the controller prevail over those of the person in question.
