“Pseudonymisation” 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 organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- Filing system
“Filing system” means any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specified criteria, whether such collection is maintained centrally, decentrally, or on a functional or geographical basis.
“Controller” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

The right to receive a copy under paragraph 3 shall not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
(4) Right to correction
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, including by means of a supplementary declaration.
(5) Right to deletion (Right to be forgotten)
You have the right to request that the controller delete personal data concerning you without undue delay and we are obliged to delete personal data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:
- The personal data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or is otherwise processed.
- The data subject withdraws the consent which was the basis for its processing according to Article 6 para. 1 lit. a or Article 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for its continued processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 GDPR.
- The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
- The personal data must be deleted in compliance with the obligations under European Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject.
- The personal data have been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 para. 1 GDPR.
If the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to paragraph 1, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, 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.
The right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary:
- to exercise 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 field of public health, in accordance with lit. h and i of Article 9 para. 2 and Article 9 para. 3 GDPR;

- for the assertion, exercise, or defence of legal claims.
(6) Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
- the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
- the processing is unlawful but the data subject opposes the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of its use;
- the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject still needs it to remain on file in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR, as long as it is not yet established whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data shall be processed, apart from being stored, only with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise, or defence 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 of a Member State.
In order to exercise the right to restrict the 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:
- the processing is based on consent pursuant to lit. a of Article 6 para. 1 or lit. a of Article 9 para. 2 or on a contract pursuant to lit. b of Article 6 para. 1 GDPR; and
- the processing is carried out by automated means.
When exercising the right to data portability in accordance with paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller where this is technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability is without prejudice to 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 of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you carried out on the basis of lit. e or f of Article 6 para. 1 GDPR, including any profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he 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 the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated means 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 as referred to in Article 89 para. 1, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
You can exercise the right of objection at any time by contacting the respective controller.
(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:
- is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller,
- is permitted based on legal specifications of the Union or Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal specifications contain appropriate measures for the safeguarding of the rights and freedoms as well as the authorized interests of the data subject or
- has the data subject’s explicit consent.
The controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include, at least, the right to obtain human intervention 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
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, they shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy 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.
