The data subject is entitled to the information being ignored until it is decided which information is correct. Data subjects are also entitled to request that the Academy does not use the information if it is no longer needed.



Data subjects have the right to object to the processing of information unless SAFD processes the information as part of a task assigned to the Academy by other authorities.
