Data subject rights

Data subjects have the right to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning them are being processed. If this is the case, he or she has the right of access to those personal data and to the information pursuant to Article 15 GDPR. The data subject has the right to request the controller without undue delay to rectify any inaccurate personal data and, where appropriate, to supplement any incomplete personal data (Art. 16 GDPR).

The data subject has the right to request that the controller erases the personal data concerning him or her without undue delay if one of the points in Art. 17 GDPR applies e.g. if the data are no longer needed for the purposes pursued (right to erasure).

The data subject has the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the points in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data subject has objected to the processing for the duration of the controller's investigation.

The data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data on grounds relating to his or her particular situation. The controller will then no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds that the processing overrides the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 21 GDPR).

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial action, any data subject has the right to have recourse to a supervisory authority if he or she considers that the processing of his or her personal data infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). The data subject may exercise this right before a supervisory authority in the Member State where he or she is located, where he or she works or where the alleged infringement has occurred.
