As a Data Subject, you have the right to request access to your Personal Data as it exists in our records by emailing us at privacy@thestable.com. You also have the right to rectify, correct, or amend your Personal Data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You may also have the ‘right to erasure’ of your Personal Data; however, this is not always possible due to legal requirements and exceptions may apply. A Data Subject may have the right to object to the processing of his or her Personal Data, for example, due to his or her particular situation, for direct marketing uses, or for scientific or historical research. In certain circumstances, Data Subjects may have the right to obtain a restriction on our processing of their Personal Data, in which case such Personal Data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the Data Subject’s consent or in circumstances such as our exercise or defense of legal claims or the protection of another person.

Data Retention

We retain the Personal Information we collect where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). This means that we retain different categories of data for different periods of time depending on the category of user to whom the data relates, the type of data, and the purposes for which we collected the data. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or aggregate it. At any time, users may request deletion of their account data immediately by sending an email to privacy@thestable.com. When we delete your account, it cannot be recovered.
