To be informed:
You have the right to be provided with information about how your personal information is processed, the reason for processing, and all other relevant and necessary information to ensure that transparent processing is adhered to.

To be given access:
You have the right to know if your personal information is being processed, information about the purpose of processing, information about the period for which your personal information is stored, information regarding restricting data processing, the source of data collection, any automated processes that involve your personal information, and you can also request a copy of any personal information that is being processed.
