An Adequacy Decision from the European Commission.

If you are receiving marketing from us, you may opt out. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please contact us at email@example.com and request to “opt out" of marketing
The exercise of Data Subjects’ rights as some other “interactions” requires the univocal identification of the person submitting such request as being, in fact, the Data Subject to whom such Personal Data pertains to, hence we may have to set in place a process or mechanism that allows it to document having undergone such assertive identification.
