Below is an outline of those rights and how EU customers may exercise those rights. To exercise any of your rights, please contact GreenGeeks at privacy@greengeeks.com

Access

You have the right to know whether GreenGeeks processes personal information about you and, if it does, to access data GreenGeeks holds about you and certain information about how GreenGeeks uses and shares it.

Portability

You have the right to receive a subset of the personal information you provide to GreenGeeks in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and a right to request that GreenGeeks transfer such personal information to another party.

GreenGeeks is not responsible for the security of the personal information or its processing once received by the third party.

Correction

You have the right to require GreenGeeks to correct any personal information held about you that is inaccurate and have incomplete data completed. If you request correction, please explain in detail why you believe the personal information is inaccurate or incomplete so that we can assess whether a correction is required.

Erasure

You may request that GreenGeeks erase the personal information it holds about you in the following circumstances: (1) where you believe it is no longer necessary for GreenGeeks to hold the personal information; (2) you withdraw your consent to the processing of the personal information, and GreenGeeks was processing it on the basis of your consent; (3) GreenGeeks is processing your data on the basis of its legitimate interest and you object to such processing; (4) you no longer wish us to use your data to send you marketing; or (5) you believe GreenGeeks is unlawfully processing your data. Please provide as much detail as possible on your reasons for the request to assist GreenGeeks in determining whether you have a valid basis for erasure.

Restriction of Processing

You have a right to require us to stop processing the personal information GreenGeeks holds about you other than for storage purposes in the following circumstances: (1) you believe the personal information is not accurate for the period it takes for us to verify whether the data is accurate; GreenGeeks wishes to erase the personal information as the processing it is doing is unlawful, but you want GreenGeeks to simply restrict the use of that data; (3) GreenGeeks no longer needs the personal information for the purposes of the processing but you require it to retain the data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or (4) you have objected to GreenGeeks processing personal information it holds about you on the basis of its legitimate interest and you wish it to stop processing the personal information while it determines whether there is an overriding interest in GreenGeeks retaining such information.

Objection

You have the right to object to GreenGeeks’ processing of data about you and GreenGeeks will consider the request. Please provide detail as to your reasoning so that GreenGeeks can assess whether there is a compelling overriding interest in it continuing to process such data.
