8. Your rights as a data subject

Insofar as the processing of your personal data when you visit our website, you are entitled to the following rights as a “data subject” within the meaning of the DSGVO:

8.1 Disclosure

You can request information from us as to whether your personal data will be processed by us. The right to information is excluded if the data are only stored because they may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods, or for the sole purpose of data backup, insofar as the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and the processing for other purposes by appropriate technical and organisational measures is excluded.

Provided that in your case the right to information is not excluded and your personal data are processed by us, you can request disclosure of the following information from us:

  • the purpose of the processing,
  • categories of personal data processed by you,
  • recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data will be disclosed to, in particular recipients in third countries,
  • if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the duration of storage,
  • the existence of a right to correction or deletion or limitation of the processing of personal data concerning you, or of a right to object to such processing,
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority,
  • if the personal data has not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information about the origin of the data,
  • the existence of automated decision making, including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and desired impact of automated decision making,
  • in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission has decided on the adequacy of the level of protection in accordance with Art. 45 (3) DSGVO,

information on the appropriate safeguards for the protection of personal data in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 DSGVO.

8.2 Completion and Rectification

If you discover that we have inaccurate personal data about you, you can request that we correct that inaccurate data immediately. If your personal data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

8.3 Cancellation

You have the right of cancellation (“right to be forgotten”), unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of freedom of expression, of information or of a legal obligation or for the performance of a task which is in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:

  • Personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
  • The justification for the processing was exclusively at your consent, which you have revoked.
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data not made public by us and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no right to cancellation if, the deletion in the case of lawful non-automated data processing due to the special nature of the storage is not or only with disproportionately high effort possible and your interest in the deletion is minimal. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of cancellation.

8.4 Processing of Personal Data

You can request us to restrict the processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction may be requested for a period of time which enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you demand the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • Your personal data will no longer be required by us for the purposes of processing, but which you need to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • You have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO. The restriction of the processing can be demanded as long as it is not yet certain whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest. Before we remove the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

8.5 Data Portability

You have a right to data transfer if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a) DSGVO) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out using automated procedures. In this case, the right to data transfer includes the following rights, provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not impaired: You may request that we keep the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without any hindrance on our part. If technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another responsible person.

8.6 Right of Objection

If the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) of the GDPR (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) or letter f) of the GDPR. After exercising the right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You may object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling that is related with such direct marketing. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data in question for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option to communicate the objection informally by telephone, e-mail or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.

8.7 Revocation of Consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with future effect. The revocation of the consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by e-mail or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing, which took place on the basis of the consent until the receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, is stopped.

8.8 Complaints Policy

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority responsible for the place where you are staying or working where the alleged infringement is suspected.
