Your data will be processed by duly authorised Consulta Europa Projects and Innovation employees and collaborators, as well as by AquaWind partners and some external suppliers (e.g. providers of hosting services), and will not be used for sending commercial communications or for profiling purposes.
You may exercise your rights at any time in accordance with the GDPR, such as requesting access to data, correcting them if there are errors, deleting them (e.g. if they are no longer necessary), processing limitation and portability, as well as filing a complaint with the Supervisory Authority.
