•             Object – you may object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them.  In such circumstances, we shall delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is required for legal reasons.

•             Complain – if you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your personal information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
