  • III - correction of incomplete, inaccurate or outdated data;
  • IV - anonymization, blocking or deletion of unnecessary, excessive or processed data in violation of the provisions of this Law;
  • V - portability of data to another service or product provider, upon express request, in accordance with the regulations of the national authority, subject to commercial and industrial secrets;
  • VI - deletion of personal data processed with the consent of the data subject, except in the cases provided for in art. 16 of this Law;
  • VII - information on public and private entities with which the controller made shared use of data;
  • VIII - information about the possibility of not giving consent and about the consequences of the refusal;
  • IX - revocation of consent, pursuant to § 5 of art. 8 of this Law.
  • 1. The data subject has the right to petition regarding his data against the controller before the national authority.
  • 2. The data subject may oppose processing based on one of the hypotheses of waiver of consent, in case of non-compliance with the provisions of this Law.
  • 3. The rights provided for in this article shall be exercised upon the express request of the data subject or legally constituted representative to the processing agent.
  • 4. In the event of impossibility of immediate adoption of the measure referred to in § 3 of this article, the controller shall send the data subject an answer in which he may:
    • I - communicate that he is not a data processing agent and indicate, whenever possible, the agent; or
    • II - indicate the reasons of fact or law that prevent the immediate adoption of the measure.
  • 5. The request referred to in § 3 of this article shall be met at no cost to the data subject, within the time limits and under the terms provided for in the regulation.
