8. Your rights as a data subject

As far as your personal data is processed during your visit to our website, you are entitled to the following rights as a "data subject" in the sense of the DSGVO:

8.1 Information

You can request information from us whether your personal data is being processed by us. There is no right of information if the provision of the requested information would violate an obligation of secrecy or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide the information if, in particular taking into account impending damages, your interests outweigh the interest in secrecy. The right of information is further excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or if it is used exclusively for purposes of data protection or data security control, if the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and the processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organizational measures. If in your case the right of information is not excluded and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:

  • Purposes of the processing,
  • Categories of your personal daten processed by us,
  • recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, especially in the case of 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 storage period,
  • the existence of a right of correction or erasure or limitation of the processing of your personal data or a right to contradict to such processing,
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority for data protection,
  • if the personal data has not been collected from you as a data subject, the available information on the origin of the data,
  • where applicable, the existence of automated decision making, including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of automated decision making
  • if applicable, in the case of transfers to recipients in third countries, unless the EU Commission has made a decision on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 (3) DSGVO, information on what appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 (2) DSGVO are provided for the protection of personal data.

8.2 Correction and Completion

If you discover that we have incorrect personal data about you, you can demand that we correct this incorrect data without delay. If the personal data concerning you is incomplete, you may request that it will be completed.

8.3 Deletion

You have the right to obtain deletion ("right to be forgotten"), unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of freedom of expression, the right to be informed or to comply with a legal obligation or to carry out a task carried out in the public interest, and provided that one of the following reasons applies

  • the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed,
  • the justification for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have revoked,
  • you have objected to the processing of your personal data, which we have made public,
  • you have contradicted to the processing of personal data that we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing,
  • your personal data have been processed unlawfully,
  • the deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject.

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

8.4 Restriction of processing

You may demand that we restrict 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 the time necessary to allow us to verify the accuracy of the data,
  • the processing is unlawful and you request 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 you will need it to assert, exercise or defend any 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 clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have the obligation to inform you of this.

8.5 Data transferability

You have a right to data transferability, provided that the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a) DPA) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures. In this case, the right to data transfer includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons: You can demand that you receive the personal data you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without hindrance on our part. As far as technically feasible, you can demand that we transfer your personal data directly to another responsible party.

8.6 Contradiction

If the processing is based on Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter e) DSGVO (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), you have the right to contradict at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you 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) DSGVO. After exercising the right to contradict, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You may at any time contradict to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of direct marketing. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct marketing. After exercising this right to contradict, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the opportunity to inform us of your contradiciton informally by telephone, by e-mail, by fax if necessary, or by sending a letter to our postal address listed at the beginning of this privacy policy.

8.7 Revocation of a consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by telephone, by e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing which has been carried out on the base of the consent until the receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation, the data processing, which was exclusively based on your consent, will be stopped.

8.8 Complaint

If you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority competent for the place where you are staying or working, or for the place where the alleged breach occurred.
