Access to Your Personal Information
The SEJ customers should periodically log in to review your name, contact information and other readily available personal information, and to ensure they are accurate, complete, and up to date. You can make changes to your information.
You can request access to any personal information we have for you. We will make a good faith effort to provide you with access to reasonably accessible information. You can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete your personal data. The SEJ will comply with such requests if they are reasonable, and we will delete your data if The SEJ is not required to retain it by law and does not require it for legitimate business purposes. We may reserve the right to refuse deletion requests that we believe require undue time, or technical effort, or where not provided by local law. We also reserve the right to deny or delay requests where the personal information is scheduled to be deleted as part of any upcoming purge of data that is not being retained.

The RIGHT to KNOW and the RIGHT to BE FORGOTTEN: The GDPR gives you these rights and The SEJ has worked to provide state of the art tools to enable every user to know what we know and to ask us to ‘forget’ them. Of course, we think it would be foolish since you would no longer be able to use our platforms, but the GDPR gives you that right as well.
