People who request information or make a request or complaint; olive producers and operators’ contact managers.

What categories of data are processed?

Processed data: name and surnames, email address, telephone, employment data, production data or other data that may be provided by the affected people.

What are the rights of the people concerned?

Any person has the right to obtain information about whether we are processing their personal data. In case they are processed, people have the right to access the data being processed.

Individuals also have the right to request the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete data, as well as to request its deletion (right to be forgotten) in certain cases, such as when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for those that had been collected.

They can also request the limitation of data processing in certain cases. In the event that this right applies, the personal data stored are marked, with the aim of limiting their processing in the future. Thus, the limitation of the treatment implies that, at the request of the person concerned, their personal data will cease to be processed.

Interested persons can exercise their right to data portability, and in certain circumstances, they can also object to the processing of their personal data.

Finally, all people have the right not to be the subject of decisions based solely on the automated processing of their data. At this point, it is worth pointing out that the Les Garrigues PDO does not adopt this type of automated decisions, nor does it create profiles.

You can find more complete information about these rights on the website of the Spanish Data Protection Agency and the Catalan Data Protection Authority.

Before whom and how can the rights be exercised?

The rights mentioned in the previous section can be exercised before the person responsible for the treatment, by means of a request on paper or by email, to the addresses indicated above.

What can be done if rights are not respected or violated?

A claim can be submitted to the Catalan Data Protection Authority.
