  • Roles.

Data protection laws in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) distinguish between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). Chabad acts as a controller with respect to personal data collected as you interact with our websites, emails, and advertisements. 

  • Lawful Basis for Processing.

Our lawful bases for processing personal data include where: (a) you have given consent to the processing for one or more specific purposes, either to us or to our partners; (b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you; (c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or (d) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party, and your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those interests. 

  • Your Data Subject Rights.

If you are a data subject in the EEA, you have the right to access, rectify, or erase any personal data we have collected about you.  You also have the right to data portability and the right to restrict or object to our processing of personal data we have collected about you.  In addition, you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data (or provide it to third parties to process) for marketing purposes or purposes materially different than for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you.  You may withdraw your consent at any time for any data processing we do based on consent you have provided to us.

You may exercise your rights by submitting a written request to us at the address set out in the “Contact Us” section above.  We will respond to your request within 30 days.  We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request.
