Right to Erasure: According to Article 17 GDPR, you have the right to obtain erasure of your personal data processed by EURAMET if the conditions of Article 17(1) are met. This right will - according to Article 17(3) - not apply to processing necessary e.g. for exercising right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to Restriction of Processing: According to Article 18 GDPR, you have the right to obtain from EURAMET restriction of processing:
