3. restriction of processing
"Restriction of processing" means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
"Profiling" is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
"Pseudonymization" means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Rights of the data subject
(1) Revocation of consent
If the processing of personal data is based on a granted consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
To exercise the right of revocation, you can contact us at any time.
(2) Right to confirmation
You have the right to request confirmation from the controller as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you. You can request confirmation at any time using the contact details above.
(3) Right of access
If personal data is processed, you can request information about this personal data and about the following information at any time:
a. the purposes of processing;
b. the categories of personal data that are processed;
c. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organizations;
d. if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration;

h. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
If personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer. We will provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. For any additional copies you request, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs. If you make the request electronically, the information shall be provided in a commonly used electronic format, unless it specifies otherwise. The right to receive a copy under paragraph 3 shall not interfere with the rights and freedoms of others.
(4) Right to rectification
You have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate personal data relating to you without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data - also by means of a supplementary declaration.
(5) Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten").
You have the right to request the controller to erase personal data concerning you without undue delay, and we are obliged to erase personal data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:
a. The personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
b. The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
c. The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) DSGVO.
d. The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
e. The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
f. The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
If the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to paragraph 1, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that a data subject has requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of that personal data, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation.
The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not exist to the extent that the processing is necessary:
for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to make impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
(6) Right to restriction of processing.
You have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
a. the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
b. the processing is unlawful and the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data;
c. the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
d. the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, as long as it is not yet established whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, this personal data - apart from being stored - shall only be used with the consent of the data subject or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the purposes of the processing of personal data.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data shall - apart from being stored - only be processed with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or a Member State.
In order to exercise the right to restrict processing, the data subject may at any time contact us using the contact details provided above.
(7) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that:
a. the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) DSGVO; and
b. the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
When exercising the right to data portability pursuant to paragraph 1, you have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, where technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability does not affect the right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
(8) Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
You have the right to object on grounds relating to your particular situation to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1), unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
You can exercise the right to object at any time by contacting the respective controller.
(9) Automated decisions in individual cases 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:
a. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller,
b. is permitted by legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject; or
c. takes place with the explicit consent of the data subject.
The controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which include, at least, the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the relevant controller.
(10) Right to complain to a supervisory authority.
They shall also have the right, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to them infringes this Regulation.
(11) Right to an effective judicial remedy.
They shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy, without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR, if they consider that their rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of their personal data not in compliance with this Regulation.
