5.2 Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not we are processing personal data concerning one’s self. If we should happen to be processing your personal data, you are entitled to the following information:
- Why we are processing your data (see also item 4.1);
- What types of data we are processing;
- What types of recipients receive or could receive your data (see also item 4.3);
- How long we will save your data for; in the case that we are unable to specify how long the data is to be saved we are obliged to inform you how the storage duration was determined (e.g. after the legal retention period has expired) (see also item 4.5);
- You have the right to rectification and erasure of data relevant to one’s person. This also includes the right to restriction of processing and/or the possibility for objection (see also the following points 5.2, 5.3 et.al.);
- You have the right to appeal to the regulating agency;
- Where the data comes from, if not collected from you directly;
- Whether your data will be used for an automated decision and, if so, what kind of logic the decision is based on and what impact and scope the automated decision may have for you;
- If data regarding one’s self is transferred to another country outside the European Union, you have the right to be informed, whether and if so on what basis an adequate form of protection is guaranteed by the data recipient;
- You have the right to demand a copy of all the personal data collected. Copies of personal data are in general provided in electronic form. The first copy is free of charge, additional copies may require payment. A copy can only be provided as long as the rights of others are not in any way affected.
5.3 Right to data rectification (acc. Art. 16 GDPR)
You have the right to ask us to rectify your data should it be incorrect and/or incomplete. This right also includes the right that your data be amended with supplementary statements or notes. A correction and/or supplement data must be made without undue delay.
5.4 Right to deletion of personal data (acc. Art. 17 GDPR)
You have the right to demand that the collected data be deleted, if:
- The personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which they were originally collected and processed;
- The data has been processed with your consent and you have revoked your consent; however, this does not apply if there is another valid legal license to process the data;
- You have raised an appeal against your data being processed but the data collected is legalized under the term “legitimate interest… (referred to in Article 6 (1)(e) or (f));
Therefore, if there is legitimate reason to warrant a continuation of processing the collected data does not have to be deleted;
- You have appealed against the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes;
- Your personal data has been unlawfully processed
- It concerns a child’s data which has been collected with consent (acc. Art, 8 (1) GDPR) for services of the information society (= electronic service).

- to fulfill a legal obligation (e.g. statutory retention obligations)
- to perform public duties and uphold interests under applicable law (including "public health") or
- for archiving and / or research purposes
- The personal data is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the data is to be deleted this must be done immediately (without undue delay). If personal data has been made public by us (e.g. on the internet), we have to ensure, as far as it is technically possible and reasonable, that other data processors are informed about the request for deletion, this includes deleting any links, copies and/or replications.
5.5 Right to restriction of processing (acc. Article 18 GDPR)
You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data in the following cases:
- If you have disputed the accuracy of your personal information, you may request that for the duration of the verification process your data not be used elsewhere, thus limiting its processing.
- In the case of unlawful data processing, you may request that your data be restricted in its usage rather than deleted.
- If you require your personal data to assert, exercise or defend your rights, and we no longer need your information, you may request that we restrict the processing for prosecution purposes.
- If you have appealed against the data being processed (pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR) (see also point 5.7) and it is not yet clear whether our interests in processing outweigh your interests, you may request that for the duration of the verification process, your data not be used and its processing restricted.
Personal data whose processing has been restricted at your request may be, subject to storage – only if:
- You give your consent
- It is to assert, exercise or defend legal claims
- It is to protect the rights of other natural or legal persons, or
- It is to be processed for reasons of important public interest.
In the case that the restriction set on the processing is lifted then you will be informed on this matter in advance.

You have the right to request the data that you have provided to us, in an accessible electronic formation. (E.g. as a PDF or Excel document).

A prerequisite of this right is that the processing is based on consent or occurs due to the implementation of a contract (see above 4.2) and is carried out by the use of an automated process.
To exercise the right of data portability the rights and freedoms of other persons are not to be impaired in any way.
If you exercise your right of data portability, you continue to have the right to be forgotten in correspondence with article 17 GDPR.
5.7 Right to object against the processing of certain data (acc. Article 21 GDPR)
You may object to the processing of your data being used to fulfill duties necessary to public interest or authorized persons (see 4.2). You will need to state the specific reasons as to why you object. This can be, for example, family circumstances or secrecy interests that merit protection.
In the event that one objects to the processing of certain data then we are obligated to stop processing the data for the purposes stated in 4.1 unless:
- There is compelling and legitimate ground for processing, which outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms, or
- Processing is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
You may object at any time to your data being used for marketing purposes. This also includes profiling, provided that the profile is in direct connection with marketing purposes.

5.8 A ban on automated individual decision making, including profiling (acc. Article 22 GDPR)
Decisions taken by us that, have legal consequences or that may significantly affect you, are not allowed to be solely based on the automated processing of personal data. This also includes profiling. A prohibition is not valid as long as the automated decision:

- Is permitted by law, if such legislation contains adequate measures for the safeguarding of your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
- Is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
Decisions, that are founded exclusively on automatically processed data of special categories regarding personal data (= sensitive data), are only permissible if based on
- The data subjects explicit consent or
- There is a significant public interest in the processing of the data
Appropriate measures have to be taken to protect your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests.

If an identification is not possible then we reserve the right to refuse to process the request. If possible, we will inform you separately of any failed attempts made to identify one’s self. (See Article 12 (6) article 11 GDPR).
Information requests are usually processed within one month of receipt. However, this deadline may be extended by an additional two months if deemed necessary, after analysis of the complexity of the issue and/or the number or questions raised. If the deadline is to be extended, you will be informed within one month as to the reasons behind this decision. If we have no intention of taking action upon the request made, you will be informed within one month after receipt. We will state both the reasons behind this decision and inform you of the options available to either lodge a complaint with a regulatory body or your right to appeal this decision (see Article 12(3) and (4) GDPR).
