Allow rectification requests

Requirement#

The system must allow its users to request rectification of the collected data belonging to them.

Description#

Exceptions#

  1. If the system is able to demonstrate that it is not possible to individually identify users based on the information collected from them, this requirement is not applicable.

  2. The processing of the personal information might have scientific, historical research or statistical purposes. If the system properly safeguards this information and if complying with this requirement seriously impairs these purposes, this requirement is not applicable.

  3. The processing of the personal information might have archiving purposes in the public interest. If the system properly safeguards this information and if complying with this requirement seriously impairs these purposes, this requirement is not applicable.
