Your rights as a user

Scriptis handles personal information in compliance with regulations such as GDPR and Quebec’s bill 25. It is our responsibility to inform you of your rights regarding your personal information and how to exercise them.

Right to be Informed: Users should review the privacy policies to understand how their data is being used. Users can also reach out to a data controller to inquire about the personal data held and its usage.

Right of Access: The right to data portability, as outlined in Article 20 of the GDPR, allows individuals to obtain their personal data from a data controller in a format that is easily reusable in another context. This right applies when personal data processing is automated and based on consent or a contract between the individual and the data controller and does not infringe on the rights and freedoms of others.

Right to Rectification: Users can request corrections to inaccurate or incomplete data by communicating with the data controller and clearly explaining what information is inaccurate while providing the correct details.

Right to Erasure: Users have the right to request the deletion of their personal data by contacting the data controller. They must provide reasons such as data no longer being necessary, withdrawal of consent, objection to processing, unlawful processing, legal obligations, or data collected from a child. Understand that the right to erasure may not apply in certain circumstances like freedom of expression, legal obligations, public interest, archiving purposes, scientific research, or defense of legal claims.
