8 Rights of the data subject
If personal data is processed by you, you are the data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and you are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis the person responsible:
8.1 Right to information
You can request confirmation from the person responsible as to whether personal data relating to you will be processed by us.
In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:
- the purposes for which the personal data will be processed;
- the category of personal data to be processed;

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer.
8.2 Right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The data controller must carry out the rectification immediately.
8.3 Right to limit the processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
- if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
- the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- if you have lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the justified reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
8.4 Right of deletion
8.4.1 You may request the data controller to delete the personal data relating to you immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
- The personal data relating to you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

8.4.2 If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the data controllers processing the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
8.4.3 The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary.

- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
8.5 Right to information
If you have exercised your right to rectify, cancel or limit the processing of your personal data against the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of such rectification, cancellation or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed of such recipients by the data controller.
8.6 Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the responsible person in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate these data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO and
processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, as far as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
8.7 Right of objection
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The person responsible will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless he can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection through automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of Information Society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
8.8 Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.
8.9 Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
They shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects on them or which similarly significantly affects them. This shall not apply where the decision
- is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
- is authorised by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
- with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in a. and c., the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
8.10 Right to appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of this fact.
9. passing on the data to third parties
The data will not be passed on to third parties.
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
- the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,
- in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
- this is legally permissible and required for the execution of contractual relationships with you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO.
10. legal basis of the processing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis.
Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
Article 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities.
11. duration of the storage of personal data
Personal data will be stored for the duration of the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the data will be routinely deleted unless it is necessary to initiate or fulfil a contract.
