Right to object.  Under certain circumstances, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of your data by us and we are required to no longer process your data.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS.   8.1. It is sometimes necessary for us to share your data outside of the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA). This generally occurs when our service providers are located outside the UK or the EEA or you are based outside the UK or the EEA. 8.2. If this happens, we will ensure that the transfer will be compliant with the relevant data protections laws including the appropriate UK GDPR or GDPR (as the case may be). 8.3. Our standard practice is to use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission for such transfers (or similar).  8.4. Where the standard contractual clauses are not used, appropriate contractual, security and technical measures, will be in place that incorporate the appropriate GDPR (“LKQ Agreement”) so where data is transferred elsewhere any recipient shall at the very least enter in to an LKQ Agreement. 9.
