Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) of the EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

5. The right to information
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 data controller inform you regarding such recipients.
6. Right to data portability
- You have the right to obtain your personal data that you have provided to the data 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, insofar as a) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR and b) the processing is carried out using automated methods.
- 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.
- In order to exercise the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the controller.
7. Right of objection
- 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 responsible party 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.
- In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact the controller directly.
8. The right to revoke the declaration of consent pursuant to data protection
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 any processing undertaken on the basis of this consent before its withdrawal. You can contact the data controller for this.
9. Automated decision in individual cases, including profiling
(1) You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This shall not apply if the decision:
- is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the you and a data controller;
- is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
- is based on your explicit consent.
(2) However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9, Para. 1 of the GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) or g) of the GDPR and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedom as well as your legitimate interests.
(3) In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the data controller, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.
(4) If the data subject wishes to exercise their rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the company.
10. 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.
