In addition, you have a right of objection and a right of withdrawal.
Details on the individual rights are provided in the following:

- the purposes of processing;
- the categories of personal data processed;
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will still be disclosed, especially for recipients in third countries or for international organisations;

If we have transferred your data to an international organisation or to a third country, you also have the right to access information as to whether appropriate guarantees exist in the context of the transfer according to Art. 46 GDPR.
b. Right of rectification
You have the right to the rectification and/or completion of the data that we have stored about your person if this data is inaccurate or incomplete. We will then complete the rectification or completion without delay.
c. Right to the restriction of processing
Under certain conditions, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. In this respect, at least one of the following conditions must be fulfilled:
- you dispute the accuracy of the personal data, and for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful, but you decline the erasure of the personal data, requesting instead that the use of the personal data is restricted;
- we no longer require the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you require it in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- you have lodged an objection to the processing according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, insofar as it has not yet been determined as to whether our legitimate reasons override your interests.
d. Right to erasure
You have the right to ask us to erase your personal data immediately if we are obliged to do so. This is the case if one of the following conditions is fulfilled:
- Your personal data are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
- You withdraw your consent on which the processing was based according to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing according to Article 21 (2) GDPR.

- The erasure of personal data is required in order to fulfil a legal obligation under EU law or the law of the EU member states to which we are subject.
- Your personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered according to Art. 8 (1) GDPR.
If we have made your personal data public and we are obliged to erase it in accordance with the aforementioned conditions, we will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the technology and implementation costs available to us, to provide other Controllers who process the personal data with the appropriate notification that you have requested us to erase all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
Your right to erasure does not exist, however, if the processing is required for the following reasons (derogations):
- for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
- for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by EU or member state law to which we are subject or for the performance of a task which is carried out in the public interest or in the exercising of official authority that has been conferred to us;
- for reasons of public interest in the area of public health according to Art. 9 (2) (h) and (i) and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 (1) GDPR, in so far as the right referred to in (1) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
- for the establishment, exercising or defence of legal claims.
e. Right to information
If you have exercised your right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing towards our company, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal data of the rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your data, unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionately high degree of cost.
f. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonplace and machine-readable format, and the right to have this data transferred to another Controller, subject to the following conditions:
(1) the processing is based on consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR, or on a contract according to Art. 6 (1) (b), and
(2) the processing is carried out using automated methods.
You have the right to have us transfer your personal data directly to another Controller, as long as this is technically feasible and it does not impair the freedoms and rights of other persons.
This right to data portability shall not apply if the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or the exercising of official authority that has been conferred to us.
g. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR for reasons relating to your particular situation. This also applies to any profiling referred to in these provisions. After an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the establishing, exercising or defending of legal claims.
If we process your personal data for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as this is connected with direct advertising.
If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct advertising purposes, we will no longer process it for these purposes.
In connection with the use of Information Society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC (Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications) – you have the possibility to exercise your objection by means of automated procedures with the use of technical specifications.
h. Right of withdrawal
According to Art. 7 (3) GDPR you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not render the legality of the previous processing ineffective on a retroactive basis, however.
i. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. In particular, you may exercise your right to lodge a complaint in your member state of residence, your place of work or the place of suspected infringement, if you are of the view that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.
