In particular, you may request information about the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or is being disclosed, the intended storage period, the existence of a right of rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, data portability (unless transmission involves disproportionate effort), the origin of your data, unless it was collected by us, and the existence of automated decision making including profiling.

You also have the right to withdraw any consent you may have given to the use of your personal data at any time.
