Dataminr will evaluate its obligations and the ability of data subjects to exercise rights on a case-by-case basis. As examples of situations where rights requests do not need to be complied with, we may deny or restrict fulfillment of a request if granting the request would impose a burden on us to provide access or correction that is disproportionate to the risk to your privacy, where access to your data places another individual’s privacy rights at risk, or where the continued processing of your personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or for the exercise or defense of a legal claim(s).

    If you are protected under data protection laws in the United Kingdom or European laws, you have the following rights under United Kingdom and European laws and may have different or similar rights under the laws of other countries.

    4. Right to restriction of processing: The right to request that your personal data is only used for restricted purposes where:
      1. the accuracy of personal data is contested;
      2. the processing is unlawful, but you object to the erasure of the personal data; or
      3. we no longer require the personal data, but it is still required for the establishment, exercise or defense of a legal claim.
    5. Right to object: The right to object to processing of your personal data in cases where our processing is based on the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or we have let you know the processing is necessary for our or a third-party’s legitimate interests.
