Where restriction of processing under the above conditions has been obtained, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller is obligated to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

(1) the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that the processing is necessary 

(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;

(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by 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;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Art. 9 (2) h) and i) as well as Art. 9 (3) GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 (1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or

(5) for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.


5. Right to notification

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obligated to communicate any rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom the personal data have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. 


You have the right to obtain information from the controller about those recipients.


6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR and

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

 

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

The right to data portability does 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.


7. Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 (1) e) or f) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. 

 

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

 

Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes.


8. Right to withdraw consent to data processing

You have the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time. Your withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent before it was withdrawn.


9. 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 data controller,

(2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or

(3) is based on your explicit consent.

 

However such decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) a) or g) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

 

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller will implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, 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.


10. 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 personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. 

 

The supervisory authority with which the complaint is lodged must inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
