In the event of infringements of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or in the place of the alleged infringement. This right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive, or to authorise a third party to receive, in a commonly used and machine-readable format, data that we process by automated means on the basis of your consent or for the purpose of performing a contract. Insofar as you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only be done insofar as technically feasible.
For security reasons and to protect confidential information (e.g. orders and enquiries) that you send to us, as the site operator, this site uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar in your browser switches from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the padlock icon in your browser’s address bar.
When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be intercepted by third parties.
Access, erasure and rectification
In accordance with the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to receive information, free of charge, about your personal data stored by us, the origin/recipient(s) thereof and the purpose of data processing. Where applicable, you also have the right to have this data rectified or erased. You can contact us in respect of these rights, or if you have any other questions about your personal data, using the address stated in the legal notice.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us in respect of this right at any time using the address stated in the legal notice. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following circumstances:
- If you contest the accuracy of the personal data held by us, we usually need time to verify this. You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data for the period required to verify its accuracy.
- If the processing of your personal data takes/took place unlawfully, you can demand the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer require your personal data, but it is needed by you for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending against legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have objected pursuant to Sect. 21 (1) of the GDPR, your interests have to be balanced against ours. You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data until it has been determined whose interests are the overriding ones.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
