10.1 Right of access by the data subject (Art. 15 GDPR)

You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you. If this is the case, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR under the conditions specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

10.2 Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

10.3 Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) (Art. 17 GDPR)

You have the right to demand that we delete personal data relating to you without delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if your data is no longer required for the purposes pursued by us.

10.4 Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

You have the right to request that we restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data, data processing will be restricted for the period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of your data.

10.5 Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

10.9 Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)

If we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (for the protection of overriding legitimate interests), you have the right to object to this under the conditions listed in Art. 21 GDPR. However, this only applies insofar as there are reasons arising from your particular situation. After an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that over-ride your interests, rights and freedoms. We also do not have to stop processing if it serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. In any case - also regardless of a specific situation - you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing.
