Perusal, correction, and removal personal data and objection
Riff gives its very best in good faith to provide the users of its Website and other persons concerned with access to their personal data or to otherwise allow perusal of their personal data, to correct this data if it is not correct, or to remove it if so requested, or to recover it or to limit the processing or to object to it, and all matters in conformity with the legal rights of the person(s) concerned.

Riff will request the visitor to identify before such requests are processed. Riff may refuse to process such requests if they are repeated or systematic in an unreasonable manner, if they require excessive technical exertions, if they threaten the privacy of others, or if they are nearly impossible in a practical sense (for example requests with regard to data which is kept on back-up tapes). Riff notifies the person concerned of its decision within four weeks after receipt of the request in writing. This term can be extended if the request is complex or if many requests are submitted at the same time.

A rejection or extension is substantiated. If you do not agree with our decision, you may file a complaint with the data protection agency ‘Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens’. Riff carries out this service as swiftly as possible and – to the extent it can be considered data controller – at its own expense, except in the event the implementation of this service requires excessive exertions, in which case it can ask such compensation as is applicable according to the legislation and regulations in such case from the person concerned. In those cases that Riff can be considered the processor in the sense of applicable legislation for the protection of personal data, Riff has the right to charge compensation for the costs of the above.

Retention term
Riff saves personal data as identifiable data for as long as is necessary for the purpose it was collected for, as described in this privacy policy. In anonymised form, the data may possibly be kept for longer by Riff.
