You have the following rights:

The right to be informed and to have access to personal data

You have the right to receive information about the processing of your personal data in a transparent, intelligible, and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language. This is provided for in this Privacy Policy. If any part of this Privacy Policy is not clear to you, please contact us using the contact details specified in Paragraph 2 of this Privacy Policy.

  • data recipients or categories of data recipients;

Right to have personal data rectified

You have the right to request that CyberUpgrade correct inaccurate or incomplete personal data about you.

You are responsible for ensuring that the data you provide to us is accurate, correct, and complete. If the data you provide changes, you must notify us immediately by amending the relevant data in the registration form or, if the data is not specified in the registration form, by notifying us about it by email. In no event will we be liable for any damage caused to you because you have indicated incorrect or incomplete personal data or have not informed us of changes.

Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

You have the right to request us to erase or delete your personal data if there is no reasonable reason why we should continue to process it if personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or processed or if you withdraw your consent on the basis of which the personal data was processed and there is no other legal basis for processing it or on other grounds set out in Article 17 of the GDPR.

Please note that in order to ensure the security of information systems and personal data, CyberUpgrade makes personal data backup copies. We will then delete or remove your personal data, except the data from such backup copies, within the terms specified below. If, before the expiry of the term specified in this paragraph, we are forced to restore the backup copy containing your personal data, we will immediately delete such data and will not use it for any other purpose.

Please note that Article 17(3) of the GDPR provides for exemptions to the cases above, where the data must be processed. If any such exceptions are valid in your case, we will inform you accordingly.

The right to restrict the processing of personal data

You have the right to request CyberUpgrade to restrict (or suspend) the processing of your personal data if:

  • you contest the accuracy of your personal data – until its accuracy is verified;
  • your data has been unlawfully processed but rather than request erasure, you wish to restrict processing;
  • we no longer need the personal data but you need us to keep the data in order to establish, exercise, or defend against a legal claim;
  • you have objected to us processing your data – until it is verified whether our legitimate grounds override yours.

After restricting the processing of personal data, such personal data may be processed (except for its storage) only with your consent or only for the purpose of the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims, protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest.

The right to data portability

You have the right to receive your personal data provided by CyberUpgrade, in a structured common machine-readable format, as well as the right to transfer this data to another controller, provided that:

  • the data is processed on the basis of the consent or contract; and
  • the data is processed by automated means.

You also have the right to request that CyberUpgrade transfer your personal data directly to another controller if it is technically possible.

Right to object

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of public interest or the legitimate interest of CyberUpgrade.

In this case, CyberUpgrade will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove the legitimate grounds on which your personal data is processed and which are more important than your interests, rights, and freedoms, or if this is necessary to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim.

When personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for this purpose and it will no longer be processed for this purpose.

The right to withdraw consent

If your personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent prior to its withdrawal.

The right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the provisions of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority of the EU Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement.

The supervisory authority in Lithuania is the State Data Protection Inspectorate, address: L. Sapiegos str. 17, 10312 Vilnius, Lithuania, email: ada@ada.lt, website: https://vdai.lrv.lt/.

Before submitting a complaint to the supervisory authority, we would appreciate it if you would contact us and explain your concerns to us. We will make maximum efforts to resolve your question expeditiously and carefully.

CyberUpgrade will examine your request to exercise the rights of the data subject within 1 month. This period may be extended, if necessary, for a further period of 2 months, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. In this case, CyberUpgrade will notify you of any such extension within 1 month of receipt of the request, together with the reasons for the delay.

If upon the receipt of a request, complaint, or claim, we have suspicions regarding your identity, we have the right to request additional information necessary to confirm your identity.
