Rights of the data subject
You are a “data subject” within the meaning of GDPR and have the following rights with respect to the “controller” if your personal data is being processed:
right to information
You can request confirmation from the controller as to whether your personal data is being processed by us. Provided such processing does occur, you can request the controller to provide you with this information: the purposes for which the personal data are being processed; the personal data categories that are being processed; the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be disclosed to; the planned storage duration for your personal data or, if such specific information is not available, the criteria that determine the retention time; the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data, a right to restrict the processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing; the existence of a right to complain to a data protection authority; any information available on the source of the data to the extent the personal data is not collected from the data subject; the existence of automated decision-making processes including profiling under Art. 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in the cases covered by the references, meaningful information on the logic involved, and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject. You have a right to request information about whether your personal data is transferred to a third country or an international organization. According to Art. 46 GDPR, you can request appropriate guarantees relating to such transfer.
Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller, if your personal data that is being processed is incorrect or incomplete. The controller must correct the data without delay.
Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you can demand that the processing of your personal data is restricted: if you contest the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of your personal data; if the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of the personal data but instead demand the use of the personal data be restricted; if the controller no longer needs the personal data for data processing purposes, but you need the personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR and it hasn’t been established yet whether the controller’s legitimate reasons outweigh your legitimate reasons. Data may – aside from storage – only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims, for protecting the rights of another individual or legal entity, or because of important public interests of the EU or a Member State, if the processing of your personal data has been restricted. The controller will inform you before a restriction is lifted if the processing of data was restricted pursuant to the above conditions.
Right to erasure
Obligation to delete
You can demand from a controller to delete your personal data without delay, and the controller must delete such data immediately if one of the following is true: Your personal data is no longer needed for the original collection or processing purposes. You revoke your consent the processing is based on pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing the data. You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding justifiable reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR. Your personal data have been processed unlawfully. The deletion of your personal data is required to meet a legal obligation under Union law or the law of a Member States the controller is subject to. Your personal data was collected in relation to services offered by the information society pursuant to Art. 8(1) GDPR.
Information to third parties
The controller shall take appropriate (including technical) measures, applying available technologies and considering implementation costs, to inform other data controllers that processing these personal data of the fact that you, the data subject, have requested the deletion of all links to such personal data and of copies or replications of such personal data, if the controller, who is obliged to delete your personal data pursuant to Art. 17(1) GDPR, has disclosed your personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary<br/>to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;<br/>to fulfil a legal obligation that requires the processing of data under EU or a Member State’s law to which the controller is subject to or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred to the controller;<br/>for public interest reasons in the field of public health pursuant to Art. (9)(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) GDPR;<br/>for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, to the extent the right referred to in subparagraph (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that data processing, or<br/>to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to information
The controller must notify all recipients of a correction, deletion, or processing restriction to whom it has disclosed your personal data unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort, if you have informed the controller that you are exercising your right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing. The controller is obliged to inform you about those recipients.
Right to data portability
You are entitled to receive the personal data that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You are also entitled to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller you have provided the personal data to, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR, Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR and the processing uses automated procedures. You are further entitled to one controller directly transferring your personal data to another controller, provided this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected. The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for performing tasks in the public interest or in exercising official authorities delegated to the controller.
Right to object
You may object to the processing based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR of your personal data at any time for reasons found in your situation; this also applies to profiling based on the same provisions. The controller will no longer process your personal data unless it can demonstrate mandatory protective reasons for processing such data that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is required for enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims. You may object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time if your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes; this also applies to profiling to the extent this is associated with such direct marketing. Your personal data will no longer be processed for direct marketing purposes if you object to the processing for such purposes. You can exercise your right to object through automated procedures that use technical specifications regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC when using information of the information society.
Right to revoke a declaration of consent in the context of data protection
You can revoke your declaration of data protection consent at any time. The revocation of a consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of such a consent until its revocation.
Individual automated decisions including profiling
You are entitled not to be subjected to a decision that is solely based on automated processing – including profiling – if it severely affects you legally or in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller, is permitted by EU or a Member State’s legislation the controller is subject to, provided such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or is made with your express consent. However, such decisions must not be based on special personal data categories pursuant to Art. 9(1) GDPR, unless Art. 9(2)(a) or (g) GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests. With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take appropriate measures to uphold your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, including at least the right that an individual of the controller be involved in the decision, that you are given an opportunity to express and present your position and that you can challenge the decision.
Right to complain to a data protection authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a data protection authority, particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the General Data Protection Regulation. The data protection authority to which the complaint has been submitted to shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the option to seek a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
