9. Your Personal Information Rights and How to Contact Us
You have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation including the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you, if you request it from us in writing:

1.1. Right to access: the right to obtain access to your information, and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy). This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with the data protection law;

1.2. Right to correct: the right to have your personal information rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete;

1.3. Right to erasure: this is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions. For example, we have the right to continue using your personal data if such use is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

1.4. Right to restrict our use of your information: the right to ‘block’ us from using your personal information or limit the way in which we can use it. Please note that your right to restrict processing is limited in certain situations; for example when we are processing your personal information that we collected from you with your consent you can only request restriction on the basis of: (a) inaccuracy of data; (b) where our processing is unlawful and you don’t want your personal information erased; (c) you need it for a legal claim; or (d) if we no longer need to use the data for the purposes for which we hold it. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future;

1.5. Right to data portability: the right to request that we move, copy or transfer (where technically feasible) your personal information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability. Please note, this right is limited to where: (a) you provided the personal data to us; (b) we are processing such data on the basis of your consent or to perform a contract with you; and (c) the processing is carried out by automated means;

1.6. Right to object: the right to object to our use of your personal information including where we use it for our legitimate interests;

1.7. Right to be informed: you have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. Therefore, we’re providing you with the information in this Policy; and

1.8. Right to withdraw consent: if you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal information with your consent up to that point is unlawful).

We will use reasonable efforts consistent with our legal duty to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.

To make inquiries or exercise any of your rights set out in this Privacy Policy and/or make a complaint please contact us by emailing info@echoesofmy-whisperingheart.com and we will endeavor to respond within 30 days.

When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the processing of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

If you are not satisfied with the way any complaint you make in relation to your personal information is handled by us, then you may refer your complaint to the relevant data protection supervisory authority which in the UK is the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office).

10. Right of Appeal
