IF DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ARTICLE 6 PARAGRAPH 1 ITEM (E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASES OF PROCESSING ARE DESCRIBED IN THIS DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT.

Right of complaint to the responsible supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their regular residence, or at their place of work or the location of the supposed infringement. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You are entitled to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or as part of contract fulfilment submitted to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of such data to another responsible entity, this will be done only to the extent technically feasible.
Information, correction and deletion
Within the framework of applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of these data. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to examine this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data.
If processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you can request restriction of such processing instead of deletion of the data.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you object pursuant to Article 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data.
Once you have initiated restriction of processing of your personal data, these data – irrespective of their storage – may only be processed with your consent, or in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest in the EU or a member state.
