In addition, you are always entitled to correct your personal data if they are incorrect or incomplete. In certain cases, you are entitled to opt out of processing of your personal information by Genovis and to request rectification or deletion of your personal data.

When processing is carried out based on a so-called balancing of interests, you are entitled to object to the processing at any time.

You are entitled to opt out of processing of personal data relating to direct marketing at any time. In such cases the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.

You are entitled to have your data limited if you dispute the accuracy of the data, or if you oppose the above processing, in both cases during the time we investigate and check your request.
