Rights of data subjects according to Art. 13 (2) lit. b

You can exercise your rights at any time using the above contact details. If we process your personal data, you are a data subject as defined in the GDPR. In this case, you have the following rights against the controller.

Information about the rights of data subjects

Data subjects have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them are being processed; where this is the case, the data subject has the right of access to the personal data and the individual information listed in Art. 15 GDPR.

Data subjects have the right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning them and, where applicable, to have incomplete personal data completed (Art. 16 GDPR).

In the presence of one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 GDPR, such as if the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes pursued, data subjects have the right to demand from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning them without undue delay (right to be forgotten).

Data subjects have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the criteria listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. where the data subject has objected to processing pending verification by the controller.

Data subjects have the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situations, at any time to the processing of their personal data. In this case, the controller will no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or unless processing is performed for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 GDPR).

Rights of data subjects according to Art. 13 (2) lit. c GDPR

In as far as you have consented to the processing of personal data for specific purposes (e.g. the processing of images), the lawfulness of data processing is ensured on the basis of your consent.

You can withdraw your consent at any time. This also applies to the withdrawal of consent provided to us before 25 May 2018, i.e. before applicability of the GDPR.

Please note that such withdrawal will only affect processing in the future. It does not affect data processing that took place before the withdrawal of your consent.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority Art. 13 (2) lit. d GDPR

Irrespective of any other remedies under administrative law or judicial appeals, all data subjects shall be entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if they consider that the processing of their personal data is in violation of the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR).
