Your rights


You have certain legal rights that we wish to inform you of. The processing of personal data is necessary to achieve the above mentioned purposes for KYOCERA to comply with its contractual obligations towards its customers. In the event you should demand from KYOCERA to delete your personal data, substitute contact details should be provided so that KYOCERA can provide KFS as agreed. As a Data Processor, KYOCERA is obliged to liaise with the Data Controller before realizing your request.


Access. You have the right to be informed on whether we process your personal information or not and to related information on that processing.

Rectification. You have the right to have your personal information rectified or completed by us without undue delay. If you have set up an account with us, you have the possibility to rectify or complete your personal information yourself.

Right to be forgotten. You have the right to have your personal information erased by us without undue delay. This right is limited to specific grounds, for example if you have withdrawn your consent, or if you object and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for us to maintain the processing. If you have an account with us, you have the option to erase your personal data yourself, in which case all your personal data is permanently deleted. In order to prevent that the user account will be deactivated, alternative contact details shall be provided.

Restriction of processing. You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information based on specific grounds. These are (1) the time for us to verify the accuracy of your personal information on your request; (2) instead of erasure of unlawful processing, you request restriction of use instead; (3) you need personal information in legal proceedings; or (4) we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds override your objection to the processing.

Right to object. You have the right to object at any time to our processing of your personal information if such processing is (1) based on our legitimate interest (including us making a profile of you based on your consent); (2) for direct marketing purposes; or (3) necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or exercise of official authority vested in us. We shall cease to process your personal information based on your objection, unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds overriding your interests, rights and freedoms or if we need your personal information in legal proceedings.

Data portability. We are required to inform you of your right to receive your personal information from us so that you can transmit that personal information to another service provider. For KFS that means that at your request we shall supply you with your personal information related to your user account. It does not include any device data, including data that was transmitted to us in a log file.

Consent withdrawal. If you have supplied us with your personal information based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time. You may do so by unsubscribing from the service that you have subscribed to if applicable. You may also do so by sending us an email to the applicable privacy email address as stated below. We shall then permanently remove your personal information from our database.

Lodging a complaint. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the country of your residence, about our processing of your personal information. You can find a complete list of supervisory authorities here.
