Personal data or personal information is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual.

3. What Are My Rights?

You have the following rights about your personal data:

3.1. The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Policy serves this purpose but you can get more information at the contact information at the bottom of the Policy.

3.2. The right to request access to the personal data we hold about you.    

3.3. The right to have your personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.

3.4. The right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold. We will do so without delay unless the personal data is still necessary for the purposes for which you provided it. 

3.5. The right to ask us to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data, for example, if you have requested correction of your data, while we are correcting it.

3.6. The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.

You can exercise all these rights by making a  request in writing and sent via email to legal@opusvi.com.   

There is not normally any charge for an access request. Exceptionally,  a minimal fee may be charged if our administrative costs in responding justify it.

We will respond to your request within one month. If we are not allowed by law to grant your request, for example, because it would reveal personal data about another individual, we will provide reasons. If your request is more complex and more time is required to process it, we will ask you for an extension for another month.  If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, please contact us at legal@opusvi.com. If you are not satisfied with our response, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection or privacy authority of your country. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first.
