12) Data Subject’s legal rights
a) Under certain circumstances, a Data Subject has the following rights under Data Protection Legislation in relation to his/her/its Personal Information:
i) Request access to Personal Information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). There may be a fee associated with this request – see below. This enables the Data Subject to receive a copy of the Personal Information the Responsible Party holds about the Data Subject and to check that the Responsible Party is lawfully processing it.
ii) Request correction of the Personal Information. This enables the Data Subject to have any incomplete or inaccurate data the Responsible Party holds about the Data Subject corrected, though the Responsible Party may need to verify the accuracy of the new data the Data Subject provides to the Responsible Party.
iii) Request erasure of Personal Information. This enables the Data Subject to ask the Responsible Party to delete or remove Personal Information where there is no good reason for the Responsible Party continuing to process it. The Data Subject also have the right to ask the Responsible Party to delete or remove his/her/its Personal Information where the Data Subject has successfully exercised his/her/its right to object to processing (see below), where the Responsible Party may have processed the Data Subject’s information unlawfully or where the Responsible Party is required to erase the Data Subject’s Personal Information to comply with local law. Note, however, that the Responsible Party may not always be able to comply with the Data Subject request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to the Data Subject, if applicable, at the time of the Data Subject request. Take Note: Erasure of the Data Subject’s Personal Information shall further not limit the Responsible Party rights in terms of Aggregate Data and Pattern Data
iv) Object to processing of Personal Information where the Responsible Party is relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a Third party) and there is something about the Data Subject’s particular situation which makes the Data Subject wants to object to processing on this ground as the Data Subject feels it impacts on his/her/its fundamental rights and freedoms. The Data Subject also has the right to object where the Responsible Party are processing the Data Subject’s Personal Information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, the Responsible Party may demonstrate that the Responsible Party has compelling legitimate grounds to process the Data Subject’s information which override the Data Subject’s rights and freedoms.
v) Request restriction of processing of Personal Information. This enables the Data Subject to ask the Responsible Party to suspend the processing of Personal Information in the following scenarios:
(1) If the Data Subject wants the Responsible Party to establish the data's accuracy.
(2) Where the Responsible Party use of the data is unlawful, but the Data Subject does not want the Responsible Party to erase it.
(3) Where the Data Subject needs the Responsible Party to hold the data even if the Responsible Party no longer requires it as the Data Subject needs it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
(4) The Data Subject has objected to the Responsible Party use of his/her/its data, but the Responsible Party needs to verify whether the Responsible Party have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
vi) Request the transfer of Personal Information to the Data Subject or to a Third party. We will provide to you, or a Third party you have chosen, your Personal Information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you. Contact us if you need to transfer your Personal Information.
vii) Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Information. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
b) If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above and where we act as Responsible Party, then please contact us at the details mentioned par. 1 a) above.

iv) Centricity must not disclose the Personal Information to any Data Subject or to a Third party other than at the Centricity client’s request or instruction, as provided for in the Terms of services or as required by law.
v) Where you, as a data subject is a client/ customer/ employee of the Centricity client and wishes to submit a complaint or request, then we recommend that you submit it to the Centricity client.
d) Fee required: Apart from any prescribed fees under any applicable data protection legislation, the Data Subject will not have to pay a fee to access his/her/its Personal Information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, a reasonable fee may be charged if the Data Subject request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, the Responsible Party could refuse to comply with the Data Subject request in these circumstances.
e) What we may need from the Data Subject: We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your Personal Information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
f) Time limit to respond: Centricity try to respond to all legitimate requests within 30 (thirty) days.
