      5. As we aim to preserve safety of Tagvenue Platform and prevent incidents of accidental or malicious loss or destruction of data, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited duration.

    9. Where we rely on your consent, you have a right to withdraw that consent to the processing of your information by Tagvenue at any time by changing your Tagvenue Account settings or by contacting us using our contact details above specifying which consent you are withdrawing. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

    10. In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information. Those circumstances are:

      1. you contest the accuracy of the personal information;

      2. processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure;

      3. we no longer need the personal information for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal information for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or

      4. and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.

      Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal information. However, we will only otherwise process it with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

    11. You have the right to object to our processing of your personal information on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for such processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or such processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

    12. You have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection, the Information Commissioner’s Office, about the data processing activities carried out by Tagvenue if you consider these may be infringing data protection laws.
