8. Rights of the person concerned

As far as your personal data are processed during the visit on our website, as the person concerned, you have the following rights within the frames of the GDRP:
8.1 Right of information

Each person concerned has the right to require the controller to get information of the processing of personal data relating to him or her. No right of information exists if the asserted information violates confidentiality obligations under other statutory obligations or if the information must be kept in secret for other reasons, in particular because of a legitimate interest of a third party. There may be an obligation to provide the information if the interests of the person concerned outweigh the interests of secrecy. The right of information is not applicable if the data is stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or serve exclusively for data protection or data protection control, if the disclosure would require a disproportionate effort by appropriate technical and organizational measures. If in your case the right of information is not excluded, and your personal data are processed by us, you can request the following information from us:
• purposes of processing,
• categories of personal data processed,
• recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data are disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
• if possible, planned storage duration, if not possible, the criteria for determining the retention period,
• the right of rectification, deletion or restriction of processing of your personal data or a right of objection against such processing,
• the existence of a right of appeal by a supervisory authority,
• if the personal data has 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, meaningful information about the logic involved, and implications of automated decision-making, where appropriate;
• if applicable, in the case of transmission to recipients in third countries, unless there is a decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Article 45 (3) GDRP, information on what guarantees of the personal data protection exist, according to Article 46 (2) GDRP.

8.2 Right to rectification

When discovered that we have inaccurate personal information, any person concerned may require us to promptly correct it. In case of incomplete personal data, completion can be requested.

8.3 Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

Each person concerned is entitled to delete their data ("right to be forgotten"), unless there is no necessity to implement the right of freedom of expression, the right of information nor to fulfill a legal obligation or perform a task dealing with 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 person concerned revokes the consent to which the processing was based and there is no other legal basis for processing
• The person concerned has objected to the processing of the personal data that we have made public.
•  The person concerned disagrees with the processing and there are no overriding reasons for the processing, or the person concerned disagrees with the processing in the case of direct advertising.
• Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
• The deletion of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no claim for deletion if, in the case of legitimate non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with outrageous outlay due to the special nature of the storage and the interest in deletion from the side of the person concerned is low. In this case, the deletion is replaced by the restriction of processing.

8.4 Right to limitation of processing

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
 • The correctness of the personal data is disputed by the person concerned, for a period of time, which enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
• The processing is unlawful, the person concerned rejects the deletion of the personal data and instead requires the restriction of the use of the personal data
• The party responsible no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the individual needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims
• The person concerned has appealed against the processing in accordance with article
 Article 21 (1) GDPR. Sie haben Widerspruch gem. Art. 21 Abs. 1 DSGVO eingelegt and it is not yet determined whether the legitimate reasons of the party responsible outweigh those of the person concerned.

Limitation of processing means that the personal data will be processed only with the consent of the person concerned or in order 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 cease the limitation, we have a duty to inform the person concerned.

8.5 Right to data transferability

Any person concerned has the right to data transferability if the processing is based on their consent (Article 6 (1) lit. a or Article 9 (2) lit. a GDPR) or on a contract the person concerned is a party of and the processing applies automated procedures. The right to data transferability in this case includes the following rights, provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others: the person concerned may require us to receive the personal information provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Each person concerned has the right to transfer this data to another person without interference from our side. Furthermore, as a person concerned, when exercising your right to transfer data, you have the right to obtain that the personal data are transmitted directly by us as party responsible to another party responsible, to the extent that this is technically feasible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

8.6 Right to objection 

If the processing is based on Article 6 (1) lit. e GDPR (exercise of a task in the public interest or in interest of an official authority) or Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest of the one to whom concerned or a third party), any person concerned has the right, for reasons that arise from the particular situation, to object to the processing of their personal data at any time. This also applies to reasonable profiling referred to in Article 6 (1) lit. e or lit. f GDPR. Once the right to objection is applied, we will no longer process the personal information unless we can provide compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing is necessary for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

Any person concerned may object to the processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to a profiling associated with such advertising. After exercising the right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data for direct marketing purposes.

You as a person concerned have the option of notifying us of the objection by telephone, e-mail or by sending a letter to our postal address listed at the beginning of this Privacy Policy.

8.7 Right to revoke a data protection consent

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The revocation of the consent can be communicated by phone, e-mail or by sending a letter to our postal address in a free form. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing which has taken place on the basis of the consent until receipt of revocation. 

8.8 Complaint

In addition, you as the person concerned have the right to complain with the supervisory authorities, irrespective of whether the complaint is administrative or judicial.
