EU Data Subject Rights

In certain circumstances, you have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your Personal Information:

  • Request access to your Personal Information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Information The Pointe Bahamas holds about you and to check that The Pointe Bahamas is lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the Personal Information. This enables The Pointe Bahamas to have any incomplete or inaccurate data held about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data provided.
  • Request erasure of Personal Information. This enables you to ask The Pointe Bahamas to delete or remove Personal Information where there is no good reason for The Pointe Bahamas continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that The Pointe Bahamas may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to gathering of your Personal Information where The Pointe Bahamas is relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to gathering on this ground as you feel it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where The Pointe Bahamas is gathering your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, The Pointe Bahamas may demonstrate that it has compelling legitimate grounds to gather your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of gathering of your Personal Information. This enables you to ask The Pointe Bahamas to suspend the gathering of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want The Pointe Bahamas to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where The Pointe Bahamas's use of the data is unlawful but you do not want The Pointe Bahamas to erase it; (c) where you need The Pointe Bahamas to hold the data even if The Pointe Bahamas no longer requires it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to The Pointe Bahamas's use of your data but The Pointe Bahamas needs to verify whether it has overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your Personal Information to you or to a third party. The Pointe Bahamas 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 The Pointe Bahamas to use or where The Pointe Bahamas used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where The Pointe Bahamas is relying on consent to gather your Personal Information. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any gathering carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, The Pointe Bahamas may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. The Pointe Bahamas will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
