or which it was originally obtained or subsequently processed; c) issue a statement confirming that the operations described in letters a) and b above have been brought to the attention of those to whom such data has been notified or disclosed, save in cases where such measures are impossible or involve manifestly disproportionate effort with regard to the right that would be safeguarded. iv. object: a) on legitimate grounds, to the processing of personal data regarding them, either in part or in whole, even
