9. TRANSFERS TO THIRD COUNTRIES
In connection with the lawful handling of your personal data, we sometimes transfer your data to organisations based in the USA. These companies are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, ensuring compliance with the Principles. This mechanism is approved by the European Commission as providing adequate protection and means of transferring data to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and is therefore GDPR compliant.
We will not transfer your personal data to organisations or persons in the USA or any other third countries, if these countries are determined by the European Commission as failing to provide an adequate level of data protection under Art. 45 of the GDPR.
Transfers will therefore be made on the basis of one of the following grounds:
That the recipient is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (Privacy Shield), which ensures that it applies robust mechanisms for assuring compliance with the Principles.
That we have entered into standard data protection clauses with the receiver, that according the European Commission offer sufficient safeguards on data protection for the data to be transferred outside of the EU or EEA.
10. YOUR RIGHTS
We will respond as quickly as possible and no later than one month from the date on which we received your request, unless the complexity and extent of requests means that we are unable to. In such circumstances, the deadline for responding will be extended to 3 months (Art. 12 GDPR)
a) Right to be informed
b) Right to access
You have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we hold on you. Access may be restricted on the basis of trade secrets and/or intellectual property rights, or on the basis that the information also pertains to other identifiable individuals.
c) Right to rectification or erasure
You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate or incomplete personal data under Art. 16 GDPR. Similarly, you have the right to have personal data erased (the ‘right to be forgotten’) under Art. 17 GDPR.
If we are satisfied that the personal data held on you is inaccurate or incomplete we will rectify this as quickly as possible. Luxplus ApS will not comply with requests that are manifestly unfounded or excessive.
Luxplus ApS will not rectify or erase your data where holding it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, or where it is needed for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. In such circumstances Luxplus ApS will only store the personal data that Luxplus ApS is legally required or entitled to, and will erase all other personal data.
d) Withdrawal of consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent to Luxplus ApS’ processing of your personal data, in whole or in part, at any time under Art. 7 GDPR.

In such circumstances Luxplus ApS will only store the personal data that Luxplus ApS is legally required or entitled to, and will erase all other personal data. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before it was withdrawn.

The restriction will apply until Luxplus ApS has finished considering your requests.
Where the data has been unlawfully processed by Luxplus ApS, but you oppose erasure of your personal data and seek restriction of it instead.
g) Right to data portability
As processing of your personal data is based on consent and/or contract, and as data processing is done automatically, you are entitled to data portability.
The right to data portability means that you have the right to receive the personal data that you yourself have disclosed to Luxplus ApS in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format.
