III. Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

As a data subject, you have a right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) under the conditions provided in Article 17 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

This means that you have the right to obtain from us the erasure of your personal data and we are obliged to erase your personal data without undue delay when one of the reasons listed in Article 17 paragraph 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation applies. This can be the case, for example, if personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed (Article 17 paragraph 1 point (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

If we have made the personal data public and are obliged to erase it, we are also obliged, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, to take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of those personal data (Article 17 paragraph 2 of the General Data Protection Regulation) .

The right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) does not apply if the processing is necessary for one of the reasons listed in Article 17 paragraph 3 of the General Data Protection Regulation. This can be the case, for example, if the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 17 paragraph 3 points (b) and (e) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

You can find the full extent of your right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) in Article 17 of the General Data Protection Regulation, which can be accessed using the following link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/HTML/?uri=CELEX:32016R0679.

IV. Right to restriction of processing

As a data subject, you have a right to restriction of processing under the conditions provided in Article 18 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

This means that you have the right to obtain from us the restriction of processing if one of the conditions provided in Article 18 paragraph 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation applies. This can be the case, for example, if you contest the accuracy of the personal data. In such a case, the restriction of processing lasts for a period that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data (Article 18 paragraph 1 point (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

Restriction means that stored personal data are marked with the goal of restricting their future processing (Article 4 paragraph 3 of the General Data Protection Regulation).

V. Right to data portability

As a data subject, you have a right to data portability under the conditions provided in Article 20 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

This means that you generally have the right to receive your personal data with which you have provided us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us if the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 point (a) or Article 9 paragraph 2 point (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 point (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation and the processing is carried out by automated means (Article 20 paragraph 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation).
