Your rights

As a data subject, you have certain rights concerning your Personal Data and as a data controller, ICEYE is responsible for fulfilling these rights. We will respond to your requests in accordance with any applicable law, rule, or regulation relating to the processing of your Personal Data.

Details of your rights are set out below:

Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

We reserve the right not to complete the request if the request is manifestly unfounded or vexatious. Should you request multiple copies or should you submit more than one request per year, we may charge you a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for the execution of the request.

Request rectification of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request the erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your Personal Data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your Personal Data in the following scenarios:

  • If you want us to establish the data's accuracy.
  • Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
  • Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.
  • You have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Right to withdraw consent

Where you have provided your consent to the collection, processing, or transfer of your Personal Data, you may have the legal right to withdraw your consent under certain circumstances.

Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority

Additionally, as a data subject, you have the right to file a complaint with the competent Data Protection Authority regarding our processing of Personal Data.
