You have several rights when it comes to protecting your personal data:

  • Rights of access and rectification,
  • Right to erasure,
  • Right to limitation in time with regard to data processing, and
  • Right to data portability.

You can also object at any time, for reasons relating to your specific situation, to your personal data being processed. It is stated that the exercise of some rights may result, on a case-by-case basis, in it being impossible for Lyxor to provide a product or a service.

You can also, at any time and free of charge and without having to provide reasons for your request, object to your data being used for commercial prospection or being communicated to third parties for the same.
