If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject as defined by the GDPR and you have the following rights with respect to the data controller:

 

1. The right to information

You can request that the data controller confirm whether we will process personal data that concerns you.

If such processing is taking place, you can request to be informed by the data controller regarding the following information:

  1. the purposes for processing the personal data;
  2. the categories of personal data being processed;
  3. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been or will be disclosed;
  4. the planned storage duration of personal data concerning you or, if specific information in this respect is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
  5. the existence of a right of rectification or deletion of personal data that concerns you or of a restriction on processing by the data controller or of a right to object to such processing;
  6. the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  7. any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data has not been collected from the data subject;
  8. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 of the GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information regarding whether your personal information will be transmitted to a third-party country or an international organisation. In this respect, you can request the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transmission.

 

2. The right of rectification

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions, or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website owner has a legitimate interest in the storing of cookies to the technically correct and optimised delivery of his services. If other cookies (such as those used to analyse your surfing behaviour) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

 

3. The right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted if:

  1. you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  2. the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
  3. the data controller does not need the personal data for longer than the processing's purposes, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
  4. you object to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.

Where processing of the personal data that concerns you has been restricted, such data – apart from being stored – may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on the grounds of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been done in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

 

4. The right to deletion

1. a) Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of a relevant person will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to exist. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided by the European or national legislation in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or erasing of data will also be carried out if a storage deadline prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless further data storage is necessary for concluding or performing a contract.

2. b) Deletion obligation

You may request that the data controller delete the personal data that concerns you immediately, and the data controller will be obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

  1. the personal data that concerns you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
  2. you revoke your consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing; 
  3. you submit an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or you submit an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 of the GDPR. 
  4. the personal data that concerns you has been processed unlawfully; 
  5. The deletion of personal data is required in order to comply with legal obligations according to Union law or the laws of the Member States to which the data controller is subject. 

3. c) Transfer of personal data to third parties

If the data controller has made the personal data that concerns you public and if the data controller is obliged for its deletion pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 of the GDPR, that data controller shall take appropriate measures, including technical means, while taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform the parties responsible for data processing who process the personal data, that you as the data subject have requested deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data. 

4. d) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

  1. to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;
  2. for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred to the data controller;
  3. for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h) and i), as well as Art. 9 para. 3 of the GDPR;
  4. for archiving purposes in the interest of public, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 of the GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudicial the attainment of the objectives of such processing; 
  5. or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

5. The right to be informed

If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete, or limit the processing, this party is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data that If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete, or limit the processing, this party is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data that concerns you has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. It is your right to have the controller inform you about these recipients.

 

6. The right to data portability

You have the right to obtain your personal data, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided.

In exercising this right, you shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one data controller to another, where technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller.

 

7. The right to object

You have the right, for reasons arising from your specific situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you at any time, which is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) or lit. f) of the GDPR; the same applies to profiling based on these provisions. 

The data controller will no longer process the personal data that concerns you, unless the party can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data that concerns you is being processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data that concerns you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to processing that is for direct marketing purposes, the personal data that concerns you will no longer be processed for these purposes. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

 

8. The right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right at any time to revoke your data protection declaration of consent. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of processing undertaken on the basis of this consent before its withdrawal.

 

9. The right to file a legal complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you reside, work or where the infringement is suspected, if you believe that the processing of personal data that concerns you is in contravention of GDPR. The supervisory authority with which the appeal has been filed shall inform the appellant of the status and results of the appeal, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
