Although the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 allows data subjects the right to have their data deleted, often referred to as a right of erasure, by providing personal data to VectraCor through VectraCor.com, you are expressly waiving such right to complete deletion.

There may be cases where restrictions on the amount of information that can be disclosed to data subjects under applicable law (for example, if that would necessarily involve disclosing information about another person).

If there is a dispute, please contact the VectraCor Data Protection Coordinator at the above address. In addition, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

 Data subjects whose processing is based upon consent may withdraw that consent at any time; however, VectraCor will not be able to provide or continue to provide services or marketing communications to the data subject. To withdraw your consent, please contact the Data Protection Coordinator at info@VectraCor.com. As stated above, a withdrawal of consent will not result in the automatic deletion or removal of all your personal data from VectraCor’ records, some must be retained for regulatory and other legal purposes.
