Request rectification, correction, or updating of any personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
Request personal data provided by you to be transferred in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
Request erasure of personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
Request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you (e.g., if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it).
Object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. This right may apply where the processing of your personal data is based on the legitimate interests of SleekFlow.
Some of these rights are not absolute and are subject to various conditions under applicable data protection and privacy legislation, laws, and regulations to which we are subject. If at any time you would like to exercise any of your rights as set out above, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

At the end of the retention period, your personal data will be securely deleted in accordance with our Personal Data Retention Policy.
