LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We process your “Personal Data” (as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation) only if we have a legal basis to do so, including:
YOUR RIGHTS IN RELATION TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA
LaMotte acknowledges that if you are an individual located in the EU, you have certain rights that you may exercise with respect to the Personal Data that we possess. For example, you may:
request access to your Personal Data and certain information in relation to its processing;
request rectification of your Personal Data;
request the erasure of your Personal Data;
request the restriction of processing of your Personal Data;
object to the processing of your Personal Data.
If you contact us to exercise on of the rights enumerated above, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to exercise your rights. We employ this security measure to ensure that your Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who lacks the right to receive it.
You also have the right to receive your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and in certain cases, to have us transmit your Personal Data to another controller.
If you want to exercise one of these rights please contact us at or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to us at 802 Washington Ave, Chestertown, MD 21620 PO Box 329; ATTN: Software Support. You also have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues, or, as the case may be, any other competent supervisory authority of an EU member state.
Right To Withdraw Consent
Where you have provided consent to LaMotte to collect and process your Personal Data, you may withdraw it at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing that was carried out prior to withdrawing it. To withdraw your consent, please contact email@example.com. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose(s) to which you originally consented unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. Whenever you withdraw consent, you acknowledge and accept that this may have a negative influence on the quality of our Sites.
We reserve the right to charge a reasonable fee if your request to exercise one of your rights is unreasonable or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such case.
No Automated Decision Making
We do not apply automated decision making or profiling techniques.
