  • Right to erasure ("the right to be forgotten") – You have the right to obtain the erasure of data about you if the data is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected for. There might be legal obligations for      Remitcall to keep the data anyway, which stops Remitcall from immediately erasing the data. In that case, we can block the data we are required to keep, from being used for other purposes than the fulfilment of the legal requirements or anonymize the data.
