10. Automatic decision-making
Data subjects have the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them. Automated decision-making is permitted if the decision is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller.
11. Right to inspect your data
Data subjects have the right to inspect which of their personal data have been stored in the register.

13. Right to rectification
The data subject is entitled to require that inaccurate personal data be rectified.

14. Right to object
The data subject has the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data concerning them on the basis of their personal specific situation.
The data controller is then no longer allowed to process the personal data unless it can demonstrate that there is a substantial and justified reason for the processing such that it overrides the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing is necessary for the establishment, presentation or defence of a legal claim.
15. Right to restriction of processing
The data subject may request that MTLH limit the processing of their personal data when:
