Your rights

According to §§ 15-21 GDPR you can assert the following rights with regard to the personal data processed by us if the conditions described there are met.

Right to information

You have a right to information about the personal data concerning you that is processed by us.

Right to correction

You may request the correction of incomplete or incorrectly processed personal data.

Right to cancellation

You are entitled to the deletion of personal data concerning you, in particular if one of the following reasons exists:

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You revoke your consent on which the processing of your data is based.
  • You have asserted a right of opposition against the processing.
  • Your data has been processed unlawfully.

However, the right to deletion does not exist if this conflicts with the legitimate interests of the responsible party. These could be e.g.:

  • if personal data is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • if deletion is not possible due to storage obligations

If data cannot be deleted, however, there may be a right to restrict processing (see below).

Right to limitation of processing

You have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data if:

  • you deny the correctness of the data and we therefore check the correctness,
  • the processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion and instead request the restriction of use,
  • we no longer need the data, but you do need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • you have objected to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.

Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format and you have the right to transmit this data to another person in charge without our interference, provided that the processing is based on a consent or a contract and the processing is carried out by us with the help of automated procedures.

Right of revocation

The data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to him/her on the basis of Article 6 Para 1 (e) or (f) for reasons arising from his particular situation, including profiling based on those provisions. If the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time.

Standard periods for the deletion of data:

If a legal regulation for the retention of data does not exist, the data will be deleted or destroyed if they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of data processing. Different periods apply to the storage of personal data; data relevant to tax law are usually stored for 10 years, other data according to commercial law regulations for 6 years. Finally, the storage period can also be based on the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. BGB (German Civil Code), can generally be three years, but in certain cases also up to thirty years.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Any data subject has a right of appeal under Article 77 of the GDPR to a supervisory authority if he or she considers that the processing of personal data concerning him or her is contrary to the GDPR. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based.
