It” section above and will typically be because:
Legitimate Interests. In some cases, we use legitimate interest as a legal basis for processing
Personal Data. We rely on legitimate interest when we use Personal Data to maintain the
security of our services, and when we communicate with or otherwise manage our client data.

resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements, as well as for auditing, corporate record-
keeping, compliance accounting or security and bug-prevention purposes.
c. Your Rights as a Data Subject
The GDPR provides You with certain rights in respect of Personal Data that data controllers hold
about You, including certain rights to access Personal Data, to request correction of the Personal
Data, to withdraw Your consent where we process Your Personal Data pursuant to Your
consent, to request to restrict or delete Personal Data, and to object to our processing of Your
Personal Data (including profiling for online ad targeting). To exercise those rights, You may
contact us as described above, in Section 12.
However, where we process Personal Data on behalf of a client (which is often the case), we
may refer the request to the relevant client and cooperate with their handling of the request,
subject to any special contractual arrangement with that client. Many of the rights described here
are subject to significant limitations and exceptions under applicable law. For example,
objections to the processing of Personal Data, and withdrawals of consent, typically will not have
retroactive effect. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

any complaint or concern You might have.
