If User require more than one copy of the Personal Information MoDeCH holds about User, MoDeCH may charge an administration fee.

MoDeCH may not provide User with certain Personal Information if providing it would interfere with another’s rights (e.g. where providing the Personal Information MoDeCH holds about User would reveal information about another person) or where another exemption applies.

User has the right to receive a subset of the Personal Information MoDeCH collects from User in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and a right to request that MoDeCH transfers such Personal Information to another party.

The relevant subset of Personal Information is data that User provides MoDeCH with User’s consent, or for the purposes of performing MoDeCH’s contract with User.

Please note that after deleting the Personal Information, MoDeCH may not be able to provide the same level of servicing to User as MoDeCH will not be aware of User’s preferences.
