If you find the storage of your data by Fraud Help Desk unacceptable, you may lodge an objection. You can also revoke the consent you have granted for processing your data. This is known as the right to forget. Fraud Help Desk will erase your data in the following cases:

Personal data may also be shared in cases where Fraud Help Desk receives a request or an order from a Dutch or foreign regulator, government agency or any authority tasked with criminal investigation, criminal security or national security.
Fraud Help Desk is not obliged to comply with data deletion requests under all circumstances.
Restriction of processing
Any individual whose details have been collected by Fraud Help Desk has the right to restrict the use of these data. This is known as the right to restriction of processing. It applies to cases in which the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data, because he or she wishes to be able to retrieve the data at a later stage, for example. In the meantime, however, Fraud Help Desk may not use the data. You may invoke this right if one of the following criteria applies:
- The personal data are inaccurate. Fraud Help Desk may not use these data for a period enabling the controller to verify their accuracy.
- The processing is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead.
- Fraud Help Desk no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data are required by you for the exercise or defence of legal claims, for example.
- You object to the processing of your data pending the objection procedure.
Fraud Help Desk will inform the data subject concerned if and when a restriction on the processing is lifted.
