How a User can exercise their rights

The LOPD and the GDPR grant interested parties the option of exercising several rights related to processing of their data. To do so, the User must contact us, providing a copy of documentation proving their identity (ID card or passport), by email sent to contact@linda-seeds.com, or by written communication sent to the address provided in our Legal Notice. This request should also include the following information: The User’s name and surname, request, address, and supporting data.


The User must exercise these rights himself/herself. However, they may also be exercised by a person authorised as the User’s legal representative, when documentation attesting to such representation is provided.


The User may exercise the following rights:


  • The right to access personal data, which is the right to obtain information on whether their data is being processed, the purpose of any processing that is being developed, as well as the information available on the origin of such data and the communications made or planned thereof.
  • The right to rectification, where personal data are incorrect or inaccurate. The User may also request that data found to be inadequate or excessive be erased.
  • The right to request a restriction of processing their data, in which case said data will only be retained by Linda Seeds to exercise or defend claims.
  • The right to object: The User has the right to request that their data not be processed or that processing be ceased in cases where their consent is not necessary for processing. Users may oppose commercial prospecting files or decisions related to the person concerned that are based solely on automatic processing of their data, unless further processing is required for legitimate reasons or to exercise or defend potential claims.
  • The right to data portability: if the User would like their data to be processed by another company, Linda Seeds will provide the User with a portable copy of their data in an exportable format.

If the User grants consent for a specific purpose, they have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.


We are committed to enforcing all these rights within the maximum legal deadline of 1 month.


If the User believes there is an issue with how Linda Seeds processes their data, they can contact our security officer or the supervisory authority concerned. The Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) is the supervisory authority in Spain.
