4.   The right to the portability of your personal data which you provided to ISEG, in a structured format for common use and automatic reading, which also includes the right to transmit this data to another processing entity;

6. If the processing depends on your consent, you have the right to withdraw it;

7.  The right to file a complaint with ISEG’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) and Universidade de Lisboa, by sending an email to and/or the Controlling Authority — the CNPD.
