Right to cancel or delete data: Users have the right to request that their personal data be deleted from our database. In this situation, the user must be conscious of the fact that the deletion of his/her personal data brings about the closing of his/her account on the BCDA platform and, as a result, he/she will not be able to benefit from all of the services and advantages that an account with us entails. Remember that once an account is closed, you will no longer be able to log in or access your personal information. Having said that, you can open a new account at any time.

Right to withdraw consent: Users, after having given us their express consent to process their data for a series of specific purposes, may oppose the processing of their data for a series of purposes (for example: marketing, profiling, data transfer to a specific third party, etc.). In this case, the user may withdraw their consent at any time so that BCDA stops processing said data for the purposes indicated by the user.
Right to limit consent: In certain situations, Users have the right to ask us to limit the processing of their personal data, which means that we can only continue to store said data and we cannot undertake any other processing activity until: i) one of the circumstances set forth below is resolved; ii) consent is granted; or iii) further processing is needed – whether for formulation, exercise, or defense in legal proceedings, in order to protect the rights of another natural person, or for important reasons of public interest relating with the European Union or a certain Member State.
