Data Subject Rights

You are entitled to exercise the following rights, in accordance with the provisions of the applicable legislation:

The Right of Access

Under article 15 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to request a copy of any of the personal data which are being ‘processed’ by Vector Maths and Science, as well as other relevant information. Please keep in mind that depending on the circumstances, we may not be able to provide all or some of the requested information.

The Right to Rectification

Under article 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to have inaccurate personal data rectified. You may also be able to have incomplete personal data completed – although this will depend on the purposes for the processing. This may involve providing a supplementary statement to the incomplete data.

The Right to Erasure

Under article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to have your personal data erased. This is also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. In such cases we will make every effort to erase data where this right has been exercised by you and we no longer have a legal basis for processing same but some personal data sets are impossible (or infeasible) to edit or remove (e.g., server backup or microfiche).

Please note that we cannot fulfil your right if we have a legal obligation to maintain it or a legal dispute is pending.

The Right to Restrict Processing

Under article 18 of the GDPR, you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This means that you can limit the way that we use your data. This is an alternative to requesting the erasure of your data.

Where data processing is restricted, we will continue to hold your data but will not process it unless you consent to the processing, or processing is required in relation to a legal claim.

Where the Company is to lift any restriction on processing, you will be informed in advance.

The Right to Data Portability

Under article 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data that the Company processes on you in a structured machine-readable format, and to transmit the data to a different data controller.

The Right to Object to Processing of Data

Under article 21 of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. This effectively allows you to stop or prevent us from processing your personal data, unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

The Right to Withdraw your Consent

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Please keep in mind that if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you.

How to Exercise Your Rights

If you have a complaint, you can contact us, using the details provided above. For your convenience, you can fill out the form that can be found here and send it to us via e-mail to or via registered letter to the postal address of our Company, as provided in the aforementioned form. We will do our best to help, but if you are still unhappy, you can contact the Hellenic Data Protection Authority, which is our lead supervisory authority, via the contact details provided on Exceptionally, if you wish to withdraw your consent to our newsletters, you should either follow the link by clicking the “unsubscribe” button or send us an email.

You will not have to pay a fee to exercise any of the above rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive, considering the administrative costs of providing the information, the costs of communication, or the costs of taking the action requested. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Where your request is received, the Company will respond without undue delay, and within one month, at the latest. Where the request is complex or the Company receives several simultaneous requests, the Company may extend the timescale for response, from one month to three months. If this is the case, the Company will write to you within one month of receipt of the request, explaining the reason for the extension.

We may need to request specific information from you to confirm your identity and ensure your right on your personal data. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request, to speed up our response.

Changes to this Privacy Policy and your duty to inform us about changes

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as needed and to apply any changes to information previously collected, as permitted by law. We will post any changes this Privacy Policy on our Website, so we encourage you to visit and review this section often. If we do revise this Privacy Policy and make changes that are determined by us to be material, we may notify you by e-mail.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
