  • the purposes for which the personal data are processed;

  • the categories of personal data processed;

  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or are still being disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations; in the latter cases you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Article 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer;

  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

  • any available information on the origin of the data if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) DSGVO and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.



You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you are incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.



a) Duty to delete

You may request the data controller to delete the personal data relating to you without delay and the controller is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:
• The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
• You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
• You file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO (cf. Clause XI) and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you file an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO.
• The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
• The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.

b) Information to third parties

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data processors who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.


c) Exceptions

The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

  •  to exercise freedom of expression and information;

  • for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;

  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;

  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or

  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    Right to limitation of processing, Art. 18 DSGVO:
    Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

  •  if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that enables the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

  • the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

  • the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or

  • if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO (cf. Clause XI) and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If you have obtained a processing restriction in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.



If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
The person responsible shall have the right to be informed of such recipients.



You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
• the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
• processing is carried out using automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

Your right to cancellation remains unaffected.

The right to transferability 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 controller.



You have the right to object to the processing of data for advertising purposes on a case-by-case basis. Please refer to Section XI of this Privacy Policy for more information.
Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent:
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation is not affected.

Automated decision in individual cases including profiling, Art. 22 DSGVO:
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 does not apply if the decision
• (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
• (2) the legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
• (3) with your express consent.

In cases (1) and (3), the person responsible takes reasonable measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

Furthermore, decisions based exclusively on automated processing may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.



You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data. You can lodge your complaint with the supervisory authority in the Member State where you reside, work or suspected infringement. The supervisory authority to which the complaint was lodged informs you as the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a legal remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.

You can exercise your aforementioned rights by sending us an informal message. This message should be sent to:
