Right to access their data
Data subjects have the right to request access to their personal information in order to determine the processing thereof.
As a rule, the data subject has the right to know what information the customer register contains on them. The controller may request the data subject to sufficiently clarify which information or processing the request relates to.
The data subject's right of access may be restricted or refused based on the General Data Protection Regulation if the disclosure would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. Such rights include, for example, the controller's business secrets and third-party personal data. National legislation (the Data Protection Act etc.) may also impose restrictions on the data subject's right.
Right to data rectification
Data subjects have the right to request that the controller rectify any inaccurate or incorrect personal information without undue delay.
Right to data ensure
At the request of the data subject, the controller must erase the personal information relating to the data subject without undue delay, if any of the following conditions is met:
- personal information is no longer needed for the purposes for which they were originally collected - data subject objects to the processing and there is no reasonable cause to process the data - data subject objects to the processing for direct marketing purposes (in this case, however, processing for other purposes is permitted) - personal data has been unlawfully processed.
Even if one of the requirements is met, the data do not have to be erased if the processing is required in order for the controller to be able to, for example, comply with a statutory obligation based on national or EU legislation that is applicable to the controller and requires the processing, or if the processing is required in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
Right to object to data processing
The data subject may object to personal data processing on grounds relating to the data subject's particular situation if the data are processed on the grounds of a legitimate interest.
If the processing is based on an agreement, the data subject does not have the right to object to the processing.
If the data subject has objected to personal data processing on grounds relating to the data subject's particular situation, the data subject must specify the situation on the grounds of which the data subject objects to the processing based on a legitimate interest. The controller may continue data processing despite the data subject's objection if there is a particularly important and justifiable reason, which overrides the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or if it is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.
The data subject has the right at any time to object to the processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes. If the data subject objects to the use of their personal information for direct marketing, they may no longer be processed for this purpose.
Right to request restriction of processing
The data subject has the right to request that the controller restrict the active processing of their personal data in the following situations:
- data subject contests the accuracy of the personal data, in which case the processing must be restricted until the controller has verified the accuracy of the data - processing is contrary to law and the data subject requests restrictions on the processing instead of the erasure of the personal data - the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim - data subject has objected to the processing of personal data (see above) and the assessment of whether the legitimate interests of the controller override those of the data subject, is pending.
During restricted processing, the data may principally be stored but not processed. Additionally, the data may be processed for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before the restriction is lifted, the data subject must be informed about the matter.
Right to transfer data from one system to another
To the extent that the information in the customer register has been submitted by the data subject themselves, and the data is processed through the means of automatic data processing and on the basis of an agreement between the controller and the data subject, the data subject is entitled to received their data mainly in machine-readable format and transfer the data directly from one controller to another if it is technically possible.
12. Right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority Data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a competent regulatory authority if the data subject feels that the controller has not complied with the applicable data protection regulations.
13. Requests relating to the exercise of data subject rights In matters related to personal information processing or exercising the data subject's rights, please contact the data controller representative mentioned in paragraph 2 above.
Requests pertaining to the right of access or the realization of other data subject rights must be submitted to the controller in writing by email or by post. The request may also be presented in person at the office of the controller.
The controller may request the data subject to sufficiently clarify which information or processing the request relates to.
