Your rights as a data subject
Insofar as your personal data is processed when you visit our website, you as the “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR have the following rights:
You can request information from us as to whether your personal data is being processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information would violate the confidentiality obligation pursuant to § 57 StBG or the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular because of an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in secrecy, especially taking into account impending damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or is used exclusively for data backup or data protection control purposes, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionate amount of effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organizational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request information from us about the following information:
- Purposes of processing,
- Categories of personal data processed by you,
- Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
- if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period,
- the existence of a right to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing of your personal data or a right to object to such processing,
- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority for data protection,
- if the personal data has not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information about the origin of the data,
- The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of automated decision-making,
- In the case of transmission to recipients in third countries, provided there is no decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the level of protection in accordance with Article 45 (3) GDPR, information on which suitable guarantees are available in accordance with Article 46 (2) GDPR on the Protection of personal data are provided.
Correction and Completion
If you find that we have incorrect personal data about you, you can request us to correct this incorrect data without delay. If your personal data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.
You have a right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”), provided that the processing is not necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to information, or to fulfill a legal obligation or to perform a task of public interest and one of the following reasons applies:
- The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
- The sole justification for the processing was your consent, which you revoked.
- You have objected to the processing of your personal data that we have made public.
- You have objected to the processing of personal data that we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.
- Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
There is no right to deletion if, in the case of lawful, non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special type of storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of deletion.
Restriction of processing
You can ask us to restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:
- You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction can be requested for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
- The processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of deletion.
- We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing that you need to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- You have lodged an objection in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to let you know.
You have the right to data portability if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter a) or Art. 9 Para. 2 Letter a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out using automated procedures. In this case, the right to data portability includes the following rights, provided this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons: You can request that we receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format . You have the right to transmit this data to another responsible person without hindrance on our part. As far as technically feasible, you can request that we transmit your personal data directly to another person responsible.
If the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter e) GDPR (performing a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 Letter f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the person responsible or a third party), you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons that arise from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on Article 6 (1) sentence 1 letter e) or letter f) GDPR. After you have exercised your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You can object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling associated with such direct advertising. After exercising this right of objection, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.
You have the option of informing our company of your objection informally by telephone, e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this data protection declaration.
Revocation of consent
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by telephone, e-mail, if necessary by fax or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent up to the receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the revocation, the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, will be discontinued.
If you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority responsible for your place of residence or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.
