If you wish to assert your rights as a data subject, please address your request in writing or in text form to GmbH

  • Right to information

You have the right to information about your personal data stored by us (Art. 15 DSGVO), in particular you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the origin of your data if it has not been collected directly from you. Please understand that we may require proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.

  • Right of correction and deletion

You have the option to have your personal data corrected or deleted at any time if the legal requirements for this are fulfilled in each case. In the event of inaccuracies, we will correct the data stored by us immediately after notification by you. Personal data will be deleted if legal requirements are met, including because the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, or because such data was processed unlawfully.

The only exceptions to deletion are data that we need to complete outstanding tasks (e.g. to fulfill contracts) or to enforce our rights and claims, as well as data that we must continue to store due to legal retention periods.

  • Restriction of processing

You may request us to restrict the processing of your data if the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO are met. This is the case, for example, if and insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the controller no longer needs the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.

  • Data portability

You have the right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, i.e. the right to have selected data stored by us about you transferred in a common, machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.

  • Objection to data processing

Under the conditions of Article 21 (1) DSGVO, data processing may be objected to on grounds relating to the particular situation of the data subject. The above general right to object applies to all processing purposes processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Unlike the specific right to object directed at data processing based on consent, under the GDPR we are only obliged to implement such a general right to object if you provide us with reasons of overriding importance for doing so (e.g. a possible risk to life or health) and we cannot demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or which serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

  • Right of complaint

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority. To do so, you can contact the data protection authority responsible for your place of residence or your federal state or the data protection authority responsible for us.

  • Right of revocation

Insofar as we process data on the basis of consent given by you, you have the right to revoke the consent given at any time. The revocation of the consent does not have the consequence that the data processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of the revocation becomes ineffective.
