What are your rights?

As the Owner of the Personal Data processed by Camping Turiscampo, you have the right of access, rectification, limitation, portability, deletion and the right to object to the Processing of Personal Data, in certain circumstances, which may be exercised under this chapter of the Data Protection and Privacy Policy.

Right to request information
You have the right to obtain clear, transparent and easily understandable information on how Camping Turiscampo uses your personal data and what your rights are. That is why Camping Turiscampo makes all this information available to you in this Data Protection and Privacy Policy.

Right to Rectification
If your Data is incorrect or incomplete (for example, if your name or address is wrong), you can ask Camping Turiscampo to take reasonable steps to correct this.

Right to limit treatment

Right to Opposition
You have the right to object to certain types of treatment, for reasons related to your particular situation, at any time during which this Processing is carried out, for the legitimate interest of Camping Turiscampo or Third Parties. Camping Turiscampo may continue to treat such Data if it can prove “legitimate reasons for the Treatment that override its interests, rights and freedoms” or if such Data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense in legal proceedings.
Right to complain
You have the right to complain to the competent control authority, the National Data Protection Commission (CNPD), if you believe that the processing carried out on Personal Data violates your rights and/or applicable data protection laws

You may at any time, in writing, exercise the rights enshrined in the Law of Protection of Personal Data and other applicable legislation through email at
