Our sites use cookies to allow customer authentication and correct registration of orders, and to analyse visits (only for statistical purposes and in aggregate form).

6. Data subject rights

The subjects to which the personal data refers have the right at any time to obtain confirmation of whether this data exists and to know its content and origin, verify its accuracy or request its integration, updating or rectification. Pursuant to the GDPR, they also have the right to request that data processed in violation of the law is deleted or transformed into anonymous form or restricted or blocked, as well as to revoke or oppose its processing in any case, for legitimate reasons.
