Rights of affected persons
At all times, you have the right to information about your stored data, the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of your data, the right to object to processing and a right to data portability and to complaints in accordance with the provisions of data protection law.
Right to information:
You can request information from us about whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right to rectification:
If we process data about you that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we rectify or complete it at any time.
Right to erasure:
You can request that we erase your data, provided that we are processing it unlawfully or the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that reasons may exist that prevent us from deleting your data immediately, such as in the case of statutory retention periods.
Independently of the assertion of your right to erasure, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as we are not prevented from doing so by any legally mandated or statutory retention period.
Right to restriction of processing:
You can request that we restrict the processing of your data if
- you dispute the correctness of the data, in which case the restriction will extend over a duration that enables us to verify the correctness of the data,
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you reject erasure and instead demand restriction of data use,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend against legal claims, or
- you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You can demand that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you can transmit this data to another responsible party without interference from us, insofar as
- we process this data based on consent granted and retractable by you or to fulfill a contract between us and
- this processing takes place using automated processes.
Where technically feasible, you can request that we transmit your data directly to another responsible body.
Right of objection:
If we process your data out of a legitimate interest, you can object to, and revoke your consent for, this data processing at any time; this would also apply to any profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove the existence of binding reasons for processing that supersede your interests, rights and freedoms or that the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending against legal claims. You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without specifying reasons.
Right of complaint:
If you believe that we are infringing against German or European data protection laws in processing your data, we ask that you contact us to clear up any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory body responsible for you, which is the respective state office of the data protection commissioner.
To assert one of the aforementioned rights against us, contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
