c) certification that the operations in Letters a) and b) were brought to the awareness, even as regards their content, of those to whom these data were originally communicated or disclosed, except in the case when this proves to be impossible or requires the use of means manifestly disproportionate to the right being protected.
4. The party involved has the right to totally or partially oppose:
a) for legitimate reasons the processing of their personal data, even when pertinent to the purpose of acquisition;
