  • The right to rectification. Users have the right to request that we correct any information they believe is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • The right to erasure. Users have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; user withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to the point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing; user objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the user objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR; the personal data have been unlawfully processed; the personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject; the personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR. If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a user wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by us, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. Any of our employees shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately. Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the user has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. Any of our employees will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
  • The right to restrict processing. Users have the right to request that we restrict the processing of personal data where one of the following applies: the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the user, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; the processing is unlawful and the user opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead of the restriction of their use instead; the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the user for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; the user has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the user. If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a user wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by us, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. Our employees will arrange the restriction of the processing.
  • The right to data portability. Each user shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the user shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. In order to assert the right to data portability, the user may at any time contact any of our employees.
  • The right to object to processing. Each user shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the user, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. If we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, the user shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the user objects us to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the user has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her by us for scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the user may contact us. In addition, the user is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
  • The right to avoid automated decision-making. Each user shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the user and a data controller, or (2) is not authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the user's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the user's explicit consent. If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the user and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the user's explicit consent, we shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the user's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision. If the user wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any of our employees.
