You have the right to request a copy of the personal information about you that the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners hold, in relation to OCEANERA-NET COFUND activities and interactions. You can do so by contacting Scottish Enterprise or the relevant partner.

Correcting your information

The OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners want to make sure that your personal information is accurate, complete and up to date and you may ask us to correct any personal information about you that you believe does not meet these standards.

Deletion of your information

You have the right to ask the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners to delete personal information about you where:

  • You consider that the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners no longer require the information for the purposes for which it was obtained
  • OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners are using the information with your consent and you have withdrawn your consent – see Withdrawing consent to use your information below
  • You have validly objected to the use of your personal information by the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners – see Objecting to how we may use your information below
  • The use of your personal information by the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners is contrary to law or their other legal obligations

Restricting how we may use your information

In some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information about you that we hold or assessing the validity of any objection you have made to the use of your information by the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners.

The right might also apply where OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners no longer have a basis for using your personal information but you don't want them to delete the data. Where this right to restrict is validly exercised, the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.

Objecting to how we may use your information

You have the right at any time to require the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners to stop using your personal information to keep you informed about OCEANERA-NET COFUND activities. In addition, where the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners use your personal information to perform tasks carried out in the public interest or in exercising official authority vested in it then, if you ask them to, they will stop using that personal information, unless there are overriding legitimate grounds to continue.

Withdrawing consent to use your information

Where OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners use your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time and the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partners will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given.

Please contact Scottish Enterprise or the OCEANERA-NET COFUND project partner in your country / region in any of the ways set out in the Contact information and further advice section if you wish to exercise any of these rights.
