Right to data portability

You have the right to be provided with the personal data relating to you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

  2. the processing is carried out by automated means.

In the exercise of that right you also have the right to have the personal data relating to you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. Freedom and rights of other persons must not be adversely affected as a result.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right of objection

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to you that occurs on the basis of article 6(1) point (e) or (f) GDPR on grounds relating to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on those provisions. The controller will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless it demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedom or the processing serves the purpose of the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you is processed in order to conduct direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data relating to you for the purposes of such marketing. This also applies to profiling to the extent it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for the purposes of direct marketing, the personal data relating to you will no longer be processed for those purposes.

You have the option, in the context of the use of information society services and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, of exercising your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

If the user contacts us by e-mail, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data at any time. In such a situation, the communication may not be continued.

Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection laws

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection laws at any time. The revocation of the consent shall not affect the legality of the processing that occurred on the basis of the consent up until the revocation.

Automated individual decision-making including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

  1. is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the controller,
  2. is authorised by EU or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedom and legitimate interests, or
  3. is based on your explicit consent.

However, those decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in article 9(1) GDPR, unless article 9(2) point (a) or (g) apply and suitable measures have been taken to safeguard your rights and freedom and legitimate interests.

With regard to cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller implements suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedom and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of the personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint was lodged will notify the complainant of the progress and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
