In addition, these rights may not be exercisable where they relate to data that is not in a structured form, for example emails, or where other exemptions apply. If processing occurs based on consent, data subjects generally have a right to withdraw their consent.
Where we are the Controller, a data subject who wishes to modify, delete or retrieve their Personal Data, may do so by contacting us (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Such information may continue to be used by us.
Data subjects in the EU have the right to lodge a complaint, with a data protection supervisory authority in the place of their habitual residence. If the supervisory authority fails to deal with a complaint you may have the right to an effective judicial remedy.
