  • when the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of your personal data and demand instead that the use of your personal data be restricted;

  • when you have raised an objection under Article 21, section 1 of the GDPR to the processing – until it has been determined whether the legitimate grounds on our side override your grounds for objection.

The exercise of your right means that your personal data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

 

The right to transfer your personal data (Article 20 of the GDPR)

You also have the right to request that your personal data be sent directly to another Controller, if technically feasible.

The exercise of your right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

Right to object (Article 21 of the GDPR)

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons connected with your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you based on, inter alia, our legitimate interests, including profiling.
