Relevant Note on Reference to the Modus Operandi AND Vocabulary

We understand that MO_AND, by providing a precise and performative vocabulary to feel and think about relational politics, is often absorbed so organically that it becomes part of those who come into contact with it. We really appreciate this spreading, but we ask for attention to the doses between appropriation and expropriation . If you want to share this work - its concepts, invented words, tools and practices - please credit the source, using citation references and providing a link to this website. Thank you for your support in simultaneously disseminating and caring for MO_AND.

4. How can you restrict the processing of your personal data?

The data protection legislation currently in force provides a series of rights that allow you to control the processing of your personal data.

Right to withdraw your consent and object to the processing of personal data

You have the right to revoke, in whole or in part, a given consent to the processing of your personal data. If you use the right to withdraw consent, the consent shall take effect from the moment you use it.
You have the right to object to the processing of personal data. At any time you may object to our commercial communications, such as newsletters.
However, there are situations in which you will not be able to exercise the right to object. You have the right to object when the processing is based on the balancing of legitimate interests. If legitimate and compelling reasons are presented that would justify processing with greater legal force than your interests and fundamental rights or if it is for the purpose of determining, filing or defending against legal disputes, you may never exercise the right to object to the processing.

You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not we are processing your personal data. You may access your personal data and request a copy of the personal data being processed by us.

In certain circumstances, you are entitled to request the deletion of your personal data.

You also have the right to request the limitation of the treatment of your personal data. When, for example, the accuracy of the personal data is called into question by you, the processing is unlawful, or you object to the deletion of the personal data by requesting, alternatively, limitation of its use.

Right to complain to the competent regulatory authority


You can at any time submit a complaint to the competent regulatory authority. In particular, you may do so in the EU/EEA member state where you live or work, or because of an alleged breach of applicable data protection laws. In Portugal, the National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD) is the national authority that controls and supervises compliance with the RGPD (General Data Protection Regulation).

The right to data portability

You have the right to ask us to transfer some of your personal data held by us to another company (data portability). This right applies to personal data you have provided to us using a commonly used, machine-readable and interoperable format if:

- The lawful basis for the processing is consent or a contract; and
- The processing is carried out by automated means
