You are entitled to demand from us to be informed if we process your personal data. No right to be informed exists if providing the requested information would be in breach of the obligation to confidentiality, according to § 83 StBerG (Tax Consultancy Act) or the information has to be kept secret for other reasons, particularly due to a predominant justifiable interest of a third party. Deviating hereof, an obligation to inform may persist if particularly having regard to imminent damages, your interests prevail compared to the interest in confidentiality. The right to be informed is furthermore excluded if the data are only stored because they must not be deleted due to legal storage periods or articles of association or because they serve exclusively purposes of data backup or data privacy monitoring insofar as the provision of information would involve a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organisational measures. Insofar as in your case the right to be informed is not excluded and your personal data are processed by us, you can request the following information from us:
- Purpose of processing,
- Categories of your processed personal data,
- Recipient or categories of recipients to whom your personal data are disclosed, particularly concerning recipients in third countries,
- If possible, planned duration during which your personal data will be stored or, if that should not be possible, the criteria for the specification of the storage period,,

- As the case may be, the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and significant information on the logic involved together with the implications and the effects hoped for in automated decision-making,
- As the case may be, in the event of transfer to recipients in third countries – if no decision of the EU Commission exists on the adequacy of the level of protection, according to Article 45 (3) GDPR - information on which appropriate guarantees are envisaged to protect personal data, according to Article 46 (2) GDPR.

If you should realize that the personal data we have about you is incorrect, you can request the immediate correction of these incorrect data. In case of incomplete personal data relating to you, you can request completion.
You have a right to deletion (right to be forgotten) insofar as processing is not required to exercise the right to freedom of expression, the right to be informed or to comply with a legal obligation or to perform duties in the public interest and one of the below mentioned reasons applies:
- The personal data are not required any longer for the purposes for which they have been processed.
- The justification for processing was exclusively based on your consent which you have withdrawn.

- You have appealed against processing personal data which we have not made public and there are no predominant legitimate reasons for processing.
- Your personal data have been illegitimately processed.
- The deletion of personal data is required on the grounds of complying with a legal obligation to which we are subject to.
There is no right to deletion in the event of legitimate data processing which is not automated due to its specific way of storage if the deletion is not or only possible with disproportionally high effort and your interest in deletion is slight. In this case, deletion is replaced by restriction of processing.
7.4 Restriction of processing
You may request a restriction of processing if one of the following reasons applies:
- You challenge the correctness of personal data. The restriction can in this case be requested for the period of time we nee to check the correctness of data.
- Processing is illegal and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of deleting them.
- We don’t need your personal data any longer for purposes of processing but you need them for the assertion, exertion or defence of legal claims.
- You have appealed, according to Article 21(1) GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it is uncertain if our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.
Restriction of processing means that personal data can only be processed with your consent or to assert, exert or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest. Before we lift the restriction it is our duty to inform you about this step.
7.5 Data portability
You have a right to data portability insofar as processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (a) or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR) or on an agreement to which you are Party and processing takes place by means of automated processes. The right to data portability includes in this case the following rights insofar as they do not adversely affect the rights and freedom of other persons: You can demand from us to receive the personal data you have provided us with, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer these data to another party responsible with no obstruction on our part. As far as technically feasible, you can demand from us to transfer your personal data directly to another party responsible.
Insofar as processing is based on Article 6 (1) sentence 1(e) GDPR (performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the party responsible or a third party), you have the right to appeal at any time against processing your personal data for reasons resulting from your specific situation. The same applies to profiling based on Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (e) or (f) GDPR. After you exercised your right to appeal we will cease to process your personal data, unless we can prove to have compelling and legitimate grounds for processing which predominate your interests, rights and freedom or processing serves to assert, exert or defend legal claims.
You can appeal against processing of personal data relating to you for purposes of direct advertising at any time. The same applies for profiling in connection with said direct advertising. After you exercised your right to appeal we will cease to use the corresponding personal data for purposes of direct advertising.
You can either communicate the appeal by telephone, via email, fax or to our company’s mail address stated at the beginning of this privacy statement.
7.7 Withdrawal of a consent
You have the right to withdraw a given consent at any time with future effect. The withdrawal of the consent may be communicated via phone, Email, fax or to our mail address.
