6. Your rights as a data subject

Insofar as your personal data is processed when you visit our website, you have the following rights as a “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR:

6.1 Information

You can request information from us as to whether your personal data is being processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information violates the duty of confidentiality acc. § 57 para. 1 StBerG would be violated or 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 information if your interests outweigh the interest in secrecy, especially taking into account impending damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or is used exclusively for data backup or data protection control purposes, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionate amount of effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organizational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:

  • purposes of processing,
  • categories of personal data processed by you,
  • Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data are disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,

  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority for data protection,
  • if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information about the origin of the data,
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended effects of automated decision-making,
  • in the case of transmission to recipients in third countries, unless a decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR is available, information about which suitable guarantees acc.

6.3 Deletion

  • You have objected to the processing of personal data that we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject.

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

6.4 Restriction of Processing

You can ask us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You contest the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction can be requested for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.

  • We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing that you need to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • You have an objection acc. Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested 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 to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to let you know.

6.5 Data portability

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

This also applies to an article based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter e) or letter f) GDPR-supported profiling. After you have exercised your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

You can object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling associated with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option of notifying our company informally of your objection by telephone, e-mail or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.

6.7 Withdrawal of 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, e-mail or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent up to the receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation, the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, will be discontinued.

6.8 Complaint

If you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority responsible for your place of residence or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.
