If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the right to access personal data we hold about you and to ask that your personal data be corrected, erased, or transferred. You may also have the right to object to, or request that we restrict, certain processing. If you would like to exercise any of these rights you may contact us as indicated below.

Under the law, a business must either provide this information or permit California residents to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing. DMTI qualifies for this alternative option.
