VIII.        Rights of the data subject

Where your personal data is being processed, for the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation you are considered a data subject and consequently you have the following rights towards the data controller:

(2)       categories of personal data that are being processed;

(3)       recipients or categories of recipients with whom the corresponding personal data either have already been shared or will still be shared;

You also have the right to request information on whether any of the personal information relating to you as a data subject are being transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. In the context of such transmission, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards according to art. 46 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

 

2.     The right to rectification

You have a right to rectify and/or complete your data towards the data controller, where the processed personal data concerning you as a data subject are either incorrect or incomplete. The data controller shall apply such rectification without undue delay.

 

3.     The right to restrict data processing

You may request that we restrict processing of the personal data concerning you as a data subject in the following circumstances:

(1)       where you dispute the correctness of the personal data concerning you as a data subject for a time period, which allows the data controller to verify whether the personal data are correct;

(2)       where the processing is unlawful and you object to the personal data being deleted and instead request that use of the personal data be restricted;

(3)       where the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, however, you need them to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims; or

(4)       where you have objected against processing according to art. 21 sec. 1 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and it has not yet been fully assessed, whether the data controller’s legitimate reasons outweigh your reasoning.

Where the processing of the personal data concerning you as a data subject has been restricted, such data – except storage – may only be processed with your consent or to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of any other individual or entity or for significant public cause of the Union or a member state.

Where the processing has been restricted in line with the above-mentioned circumstances, you will receive information from the data controller prior to this restriction being lifted.

 

4.     Right to erasure

a)     The obligation to delete

You may require the data controller to delete any personal data concerning you as a data subject without undue delay and the data controller has an obligation to delete such data without undue delay provided one of the following situations apply:

c)     Exceptions

The right to erasure does not exist, where processing is necessary

(1)       to exercise the freedom of expression and information;

(2)       to fulfil any legal obligations, according to which processing is necessary according to union law or the law of a member state that applies to the data controller or to fulfil a duty, which is part of the public domain or which is exercised under public authority transferred to the data controller;

(4)       for archiving purposes within the public domain, for scientific or historic research purposes or for statistical purposes according to art. 89 sec. 1 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, where the rights stated under paragraph a) will likely render it impossible to realise the aims of such processing or will provide a major obstacle to the said realisation; or

(5)       to enforce, exercise or defend any legal claim.

 

5.     Right to notification

Where you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or restriction towards the data controller, the latter holds an obligation to inform any recipients, who have received the personal data concerning you as a data subject about such rectification or erasure of data or restricted processing, unless this either proves to be impossible or would entail an inappropriate effort.

You have the right to be notified about such recipients by the data controller.

 

6.     Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain the personal data concerning you as a data subject that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, established and machine-readable format.

(2)       the processing makes use of automated procedures.

When exercising this right, you also have the right to have personal data concerning you as the data subject directly transferred from one data controller to another data controller, where this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons may not be compromised in doing so.

The right to data portability does not apply to any processing of personal data necessary to fulfil a duty, which is part of the public domain or which is exercised under public authority transferred to the data controller.

 

7.     Right to object

You have the right to object against the processing of personal data concerning you as a data subject at any time and for reasons that arise due to your particular situation where such processing occurs according to art. 6 sec. 1 lit. e or f of the EU General Data Protection Regulation; this also applies to profiling activities based on the stated regulations

The data controller shall not continue to process the personal data concerning you as a data subject, unless they can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or such processing is necessary to enforce, exercise or defend any legal claim.

Where the personal data concerning you as a data subject is used for direct marketing, you have the right, to object against such processing of the personal data concerning you as a data subject for such advertising purposes; this also applies to any profiling activities in connection with such direct marketing.

Where you object to such processing for the purposes of direct marketing, the personal data concerning you as a data subject shall no longer be used for such purposes.

In connection with using information society services – and regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC – you have the option to exercise your right to objection via automated procedures using technical specifications.

 

8.     Right to withdraw your consent given for privacy protection purposes

You have the right to withdraw your consent given for privacy protection purposes at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of data processing, which occurred prior to the withdrawal and based on the consent previously given.

 

9.     Automated individual decisions including profiling

You have the right not to be subjected to any decision exclusively based on automated processing – including profiling – that will have a legal effect on you or that will significantly affect you in a comparable way. This does not apply, where such a decision

(1)       is required to conclude or to fulfil a contract by and between you and the data controller,

(2)       is permitted according to union law or the law of a member that applies to the data controller and such legal provision contains appropriate measures to maintain your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interest or
