The user may at any time, for reasons relating to his particular situation, object free of charge to the processing of his personal data, when:
- the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data prevail (in particular where the data subject is a child).
The controller may refuse to exercise the user’s right of opposition where he establishes the existence of compelling and legitimate reasons justifying the processing, which take precedence over the interests or rights and freedoms of the user, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of a legal claim. In case of dispute, the user may lodge an appeal in accordance with the point “claims and complaints” of this Policy.
The user may, at any time, oppose, without justification and free of charge, the processing of personal data concerning him when his data are collected for purposes of commercial prospection (including profiling).
Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with the general data protection regulation, the user has the right to object, for reasons relating to his particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
The controller is obliged to reply to the user’s request as soon as possible and at the latest within one month and to give reasons for his reply if he intends not to comply with such a request, except in case of a contrary provision in the GDPR.
