Your rights as a data subject

Data subjects have the following rights with regard to their personal data and its processing:

  • Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR) by the data subject to obtain information about how their personal data is processed, including:
  • the purposes of the processing;
  • the categories of personal data concerned;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, including recipients in a non-EU member country that has adopted a national law implementing GDPR (a “third country”), and information on the respective safeguards in place relating to the transfer to the third country;
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
  • the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing;
  • the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
  • where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information to their source; and/or
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

The data subject shall also be provided with a copy of the personal information in a commonly used electronic form, upon request.

  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR) of inaccurate personal data, as well as, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

  1. the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
  2. the data subject has withdrawn consent and there are no other legal grounds for the processing;
  3. the data subject exercises the right to object and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for processing;
  4. the personal data has been unlawfully processed; and/or
  5. the personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation applicable to Ventus Therapeutics.
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) (i.e., data will be blocked from normal processing but not erased) where:

  • the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes of the processing, but is required by you for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims; and/or
  • the data subject has exercised the right to object, pending verification whether Ventus Therapeutics has legitimate grounds that override those of the data subject.
  • Right of data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). Where processing is based on consent or on a contract, the data subject shall have the right to obtain a copy of the data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance.
  • Right of objection (Art. 21 GDPR) to the processing of personal data based on Ventus Therapeutics’ legitimate interests, provided that there are no compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that would override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
  • Right not to be subject to automated individual decision-making, including profiling (Art. 22 GDPR). This right does not apply when processing is based on explicit consent.
