- Processing restriction: request the suppression or restriction of personal data
- Portability: obtain and reuse your personal information for their own purposes across different services

You have the right to actively use information requests listed above at any time by submitting a written claim to MetaOptima. Claims can be done on metaoptima.com, molescope.com or dermengine.com websites (Subject Access Request Form) and will be responded to within 30 days of initial contact.
Data Request Process
The procedure at MetaOptima to manage your personal data access request follows the four steps below:
- Request: you or your physician make an official request (Subject Request Form can be found here)
- Request Confirmation: Your request is considered regarding verification of the requestor's identity, compliance with legal health laws, informing the requester of their decision’s impact, and receiving final confirmation from the requester.
- Preparation and execution: If approved, MetaOptima will execute an internal approval.
- Delivery: Information and final results are sent to you if approved.
Subject Access Request
A third party may act on behalf of the data subject. Examples include an adult acting on behalf of:
- A child (parent or carer with parental responsibility)
- A adult without capacity (carer or advocate)
- Another adult who has capacity and has provided consent (solicitor or carer)
Exemptions allow personal data to be disclosed to law enforcement agencies without the consent of the individual who is the subject of the data.
Our company strives to investigate all complaints and take appropriate measures in response if a complaint is justified. If you have any concerns, we encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
