to which we are subject.

If processing has been restricted in accordance with point (e), such personal data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with your consent or for the purpose of pursuing, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State. If you have obtained a restriction on processing, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
