Your rights
If personal data is processed by you (collected, recorded, stored, evaluated, modified, read, queried, disclosed, disseminated, matched, linked, restricted, deleted, destroyed, etc.), you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR. As a data subject, you are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis any* controller who* processes your personal data:

Pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO. The right to object may therefore be exercised if the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller, or
is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require the protection of personal data (in particular where you are a child), and the controller cannot demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing does not serve to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. The right to object may furthermore be asserted if the processing is carried out for direct marketing purposes.

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law or that your data protection rights have been violated in any other way, please contact us.
