What are your data protection rights?

WayUp would like to make sure you are fully aware of all of your data protection rights. Every user is entitled to the following:

The right to access – You have the right to request WayUp for copies of your personal data. We may charge you a small fee for this service to cover the costs of retrieval.

The right to rectification – You have the right to request that WayUp correct any information you believe is inaccurate. You also have the right to request WayUp to complete the information you believe is incomplete. This right exists within reason: we will correct or complete information as you request, but we cannot always modify sections of structured data, for example by creating new categories of majors of study, universities that we do not support. You are in no way required to supply information on your profile that is inaccurate purely because we do not support it, and we ask you not to do so.

The right to erasure – You have the right to request that WayUp erase your personal data, under certain conditions.

The right to restrict processing – You have the right to request that WayUp restrict the processing of your personal data, under certain conditions.

The right to object to processing – You have the right to object to WayUp’s processing of your personal data, under certain conditions.

The right to data portability – You have the right to request that WayUp transfer the data that we have collected to another organization, or directly to you, under certain conditions.

If you make a request, we have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at our email: GDPR@wayup.com
