Your Rights as data subject

When your personal data is being processed, the GDPR grants you as data subject certain rights:

Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed; where that is the case, you have the right to access such personal data and the information specified in Art. 15 GDPR.

Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay and, if necessary, to have incomplete personal data completed.

Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay where one of the grounds specified in Art. 17 GDPR applies.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain restriction of processing where one of the prerequisites specified in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. when you have objected to processing, for the duration of the verification by the controller.

Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

In certain cases specified in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to have those data transmitted to a third party.

Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)

Where personal data is collected in accordance with Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR (data processing for legitimate interests) or in accordance with Art. 6(1) lit. e GDPR (data processing in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority), you have the right to object to the processing, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time. We will then cease to process such personal data, unless there are verifiable compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or processing is required for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the provisions of privacy law. The right to lodge a complaint may in particular be exercised with a supervisory authority in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
