At CTI academy, we believe in putting you in control of your personal information. In accordance with applicable laws, you have the following rights:

  2. Correction: You have the right to request the correction of any personal information we hold about you. This enables you to rectify any incomplete or inaccurate information we may have.

  3. Erasure: You have the right to request the erasure or deletion of your personal information. This allows you to ask us to remove or delete your personal information when there is no valid reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to request the erasure of your personal information when you have exercised your right to object to its processing (see below).

  4. Objection: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal information when we rely on legitimate interests (or those of a third party) as the legal basis for processing. If there are specific circumstances related to your situation that make you want to object to the processing, you may do so. Additionally, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

  5. Restriction: You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to temporarily suspend the processing of your personal information, for example, if you want to verify its accuracy or the underlying purpose of processing it.

We will always provide a clear explanation if any charges apply and will ensure that they are in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.


To protect the security and confidentiality of your personal data, we may need to request specific information from you in order to verify your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data or exercise any other rights. This is a necessary security measure to prevent unauthorized disclosure of personal data to individuals who are not entitled to access it. In some cases, we may also reach out to you to request additional information related to your request, which will help expedite our response and ensure its accuracy.
