4) Contact

Personal data will be collected as part of the process of contacting us (e.g. by means of a contact form or email). The data collected will be evident from the particular form. These data will be stored exclusively for the purpose of answering your concern or for making contact with you and the technical administration associated with doing so. The legal basis for processing data is given by our legitimate interest in answering your concern in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. If the purpose of making contact is to conclude a contract, Art 6 (1)(b) constitutes a further legal basis for the processing. After your enquiry has been conclusively dealt with, your data will be deleted; this is the case if it can be assumed from the circumstances that the matter in hand has been conclusively clarified and no statutory retention periods conflict with such deletion.

 

5) Rights of data subject

5.1 Current data protection legislation gives you as the data subject extensive rights vis-à-vis the controller with regard to the processing of your personal data (rights of information and intervention), and we will inform you of these rights below.

  • Right of access under Art. 15 GDPR: In particular, you may demand information about the your personal data processed by us, the purposes for which they are processed, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data have been or are being disclosed, the planned length of storage or the criteria for defining the length of storage, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to the processing, complaint to a supervisory authority, about the origin of your data if they have not been collected by us from you, the existence of an automated decision-making process including profiling and any meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the implications concerning you and the intended effects of such processing and your right to be informed of what guarantees apply under Art. 46 GDPR if your data are passed to third countries;
  • Right to rectification under Art. 16 GDPR: You have a right to the immediate rectification of incorrect data relating to yourself and/or the completion of incomplete data on file with us.
  • Right to erasure under Art. 17 GDPR: You have the right to demand the deletion of your personal data if the conditions set out in Art. 17 (1) GDPR are met. However, this right does not apply if the processing is necessary for exercising the right of free expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • Right to restriction of processing under Art. 18 GDPR: You have the right to demand that processing be restricted as long as the accuracy of your data which you dispute is under review, if the processing is unlawful but you refuse the deletion of your data and instead request that processing be restricted, if you need your data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, if we have no further need of such data once they have fulfilled their purpose or if you have filed an objection to the processing based on your particular situation as long as it has not yet been established whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your concerns;
  • Right of notification under Art. 19 GDPR: If you have asserted your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the latter will be obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data has been disclosed, of the rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate investment of time and effort. You have the right to be informed of these recipients.
  • Right to data portability under Art. 20 GDPR: You have the right to receive your personal data which you have provided to us in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format or to request transmission to another controller if this is technically feasible;
  • Right of complaint under Art. 77 GDPR: If you are of the view that the processing of your personal data breaches the GDPR, you have the right to complain to a regulatory authority, particularly in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place where the suspected breach has been committed – notwithstanding any other administrative or judicial remedy.
