1) Revocation of consent
If the processing of the personal data is based on a given consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
To exercise this right you can contact us at any time.
(2) Right to confirmation
You have the right to ask the controller to confirm that we are processing your personal data. You can request such confirmation at any time using the contact details above.
(3) Right to information
If personal data are processed, you can request information about these personal data and the below information at any time:
- the processing purpose
- the categories of personal data being processed
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been disclosed or are still being disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or to international organizations
- if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data are stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration
- the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data or to a restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing
- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
- if the personal data are not collected from the data subject, all available information on the source of the data
- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, about the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject.
If personal data are transmitted to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer. We provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. For any additional copies you request for a person, we may charge a reasonable fee based on the administrative costs. If the application is submitted electronically, the information must be provided in a standard electronic format, unless otherwise stated. The right to receive a copy under section 3 shall not affect the rights and freedoms of others.
(4) Right to rectification
You have the right to demand immediate correction of incorrect personal data of your person. Taking into account the purposes of processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.
(5) Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")
You have the right to request that your personal data be deleted immediately by the controller, and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if one of the following applies:
- The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
- The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based, and processing lacks any other legal basis.
- The data subject objects to the processing and there are no legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject objects to the processing.
- The personal data were processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of personal data is necessary to meet a legal obligation under federal or national law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data were collected in relation to services offered by the information society services.
If the controller has made the personal data publicly available and is obliged to erase them, he shall, taking into account the technology available and the implementation costs, take appropriate measures, including technical ones, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that a data subject has requested that they delete all links to such personal data or to copies or replications of such personal data.
The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not exist if the processing is required:
- to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information
- to meet a legal obligation required by federal law or the law of Member States to which the controller is subject, or to carry out a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the controller
- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health
- for archival purposes of public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes, where the law is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
(6) Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data if any of the following conditions apply:
- the accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period allowing the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
- the processing is unlawful, and the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data
- the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject requires them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
- the data subject has lodged an objection to the processing as long as it is not certain that the justified reasons of the controller prevail over those of the data subject.
If the processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, these personal data – apart from their storage – will only be processed with the consent of the data subject or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the state or of a Member State.
In order to exercise the right to restrict processing, the data subject may contact us at any time.
(7) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data you provide to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer that information to another controller without being hindered by the controller you provided the personal data to, provided that:
- the processing is based on a consent or a contract and
- the processing is done using automated procedures.
When exercising the right to data portability, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, as far as technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability is without prejudice to the right of erasure (the right to be forgotten). This right does not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller.
(8) Right to object
You have the right, for reasons resulting from your own specific situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data; this also applies to profiling. The controller no longer processes the personal data unless he can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
If personal data are processed in order to operate direct mail, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If you object to the processing for direct-marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Regarding the use of information-society services, you can exercise your right to object through automated procedures that use technical specifications.
You have the right, for reasons resulting from your own specific situation, to object to the processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes unless the processing is necessary to fulfill a public-interest task.
The right to object can be exercised at any time by contacting the respective controller.
(9) Automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - that will have legal effect or similarly affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:
- is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller
- is permitted by federal or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or
- with the express consent of the data subject.
The controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to express his or her own position and to challenge the decision.
This right can be exercised by the data subject at any time by addressing the controller.
(10) Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Furthermore and without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of his/her personal data breaches this regulation.
(11) Right to effective judicial remedy
Without prejudice to an available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right to complain to a supervisory authority, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy if you consider that the rights conferred on you by this regulation were violated due to the processing of your personal data that is not compliant with this regulation.
