You can demand a confirmation from the controller as to whether we have processed the personal data concerning you. If this is the case, then you can demand the following information from the controller:
(1) The purpose of processing;
(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;
(3) information about the recipients or the categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed or will be disclosed;

(6) the existence of a right to appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information about the source of data, if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
(8) existence of an automated decision-making including profiling as per Art. 22 Para 1 and 4 GDPR and – at least in these cases – convincing information about the involved logic and the scope and intended effects of similar processing for the data subject.
You have the right to demand information as to whether the personal data concerning you is conveyed to a third country or an international organisation. In this context, you can demand information about the appropriate guarantees as per Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the communication.
8.2 RIGHT TO CORRECTION
You have a right to correction against the controller, insofar as the processed personal data concerning you is incorrect. If the data is incomplete, then you have the right to completion. The controller must make the correction immediately.
8.3 RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
GDPR provides a right to restriction of personal data. If the processing of the personal data concerning you is restricted, then this data – irrespective of its storage – may be processed only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of rights of another natural or legal person or due to reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a member state.
If the restriction of the processing is limited by the above-mentioned pre-requisites, then the controller informs you before the restriction is cancelled.
You can demand the restriction of processing under the following pre-requisites:
(1) If you dispute the correctness of the personal data concerning you for a period, which enables us as controller to check the correctness of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is illegal and if you refuse the deletion of personal data and instead of this, demand from us the restriction of the use of personal data;
(3) if we, as controller, no longer require the personal data for processing, however, you require it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or
(4) if you have raised an objection against the processing as per Art. 21 Para 1 GDPR but it is not yet determined whether the justifiable reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.
8.4 RIGHT TO DELETION
You can demand from us, as controller, that the personal data concerning you should be immediately deleted and we are obliged to delete this data immediately, insofar as one of the following reasons apply:
(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer required for the purposes for which it was recorded or processed in another way.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing as per Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 Para 2 letter a GDPR was based and another legal basis for the processing is missing.
(3) You file an objection as per Art. 21 Para 1 GDPR against the processing and no overriding legitimate reasons are given for the processing, or you file an objection as per Art. 21 Para 2 GDPR against the processing.
(4) The personal data concerning you was illegally processed.

(6) The personal data concerning you was collected with reference to the offered services of the information company as per Art. 8 Para 1 GDPR.
Information to a third party
If the controller discloses the personal data concerning you publicly and if he is obliged to its deletion as per Art. 17 Para 1 GDPR, then he takes appropriate measures under consideration of the available technology and implementation costs, even of a technical nature, to inform the controller for the data processing who processes personal data that you, as data subject, have demanded a deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies and replications of these personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is required
(1) for exercising the right for free expression of opinion and information;
(2) for fulfilling a legal obligation, which requires the processing as per the law of the Union or of the member states to which the controller is subject, or for performing a task which lies in the public interest or is carried out in the exercise of official authority, which was transferred to the controller;
(3) due to reasons of public interest in the field of local health as per Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. h and i and also Art. 9 Para 3 GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes that lie in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes as per Art. 89 Para 1 GDPR, insofar as the law mentioned under Para a) probably makes the implementation of goals of this processing impossible or seriously hampers them or
(5) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
8.5 RIGHT TO INFORMATION
If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing against the controller, then he is obliged to communicate to all the recipients to whom your personal data was disclosed this correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing, unless it proves to be impossible or associated with disproportionate expense. You are also entitled to obtain information about the recipients from the controller.
8.6 RIGHT TO DATA TRANSFERABILITY
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. Apart from this, you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without any obstacle from the controller to whom you had provided the personal data, insofar as
(1) the processing is based on a consent as per Art. 6 Para 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 Para 2 letter a GDPR or based on a contract as per Art. 6 Para 1 letter b GDPR and
(2) the processing takes place with the help of an automated process.
While exercising this right, you also have the right to effect that the personal data concerning you is transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as it is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons should not be impaired by this.
The right to data transferability is not applicable for a processing of personal data which is required for performing a task that lies in the public interest or which takes place in exercise of public authority, which was transferred to the controller.
8.7 RIGHT TO OBJECT
You have the right to file an objection for reasons which result from your particular situation, against the processing of personal data concerning you at any time, which takes place based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter e or f GDPR; this is also applicable for a profiling based on these regulations. The controller no longer processes the personal data concerning you, unless he can establish the compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedom or the processing is used for the assertion, exercise and defence of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed to carry out direct advertising, then you are entitled to file an objection anytime against the processing of the personal data concerning you for such advertisement; this is also applicable for profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertisement.
If you revoke the processing for direct advertising, then the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for this purpose.
You have the option of exercising the right to objection with the help of an automated process, in which the technical specifications are used, in connection with the use of services of the information company – irrespective of guideline 2002/58/EG.
8.8 RIGHT TO REVOKE THE DATA PROTECTION CONSENT DECLARATION
You are entitled to revoke the data protection consent declaration at any time. By revoking the consent, the legality of the processing that took place on the basis of the consent till the revocation is not affected.
8.9 AUTOMATED DECISION IN AN INDIVIDUAL CASE INCLUDING PROFILING
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on an automated processing – including profiling – which has a legal effect on you or hampers you considerably in a similar way. This is not applicable, if the decision
(1) is required for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the controller
(2) based on legal regulations of the Union or of the member states, to which controller is subject, is permissible and these legal regulations include appropriate measures for safeguarding your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
(3) takes place with your explicit consent.
However, these decisions should not be based on special categories of personal data as per Art. 9 Para 1 GDPR, insofar Art. 9 Para. 2 letter a or g is not applicable and appropriate measures were undertaken for the protection of rights and freedoms and also your legitimate interests.
Regarding the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the controller takes appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and also your legitimate interests, which include the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, the right to present one’s own point of view and the right to challenge the decision.
