It can happen that certain Personal Data processed by DAE are not (or have ceased to be) correct or that You want to complete, erase or restrict Personal Data which You provided.

As Data Subject You shall have the right to obtain from the Controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate Personal Data concerning You.

Right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority
