12.1 Disclosure
You can request that we disclose whether or not we are processing your personal data. You have no right to information if granting the requested information would violate the duty of confidentiality in accordance with § 57 para. 1 of the German Tax Consultancy Act (StBerG) or if the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular due to a legitimate prevailing interest of a third party. By way of exception, an obligation to disclose the information can exist if your interests outweigh the interest of maintaining confidentiality, in particular with regard to imminent damage. The right to information is further excluded if the data is only being saved because its deletion is not permitted due to legal or statutory retention periods or if the data is solely serving the purposes of data backup or data protection controls, where disclosing the information would require a disproportionate amount of effort and processing for other purposes is excluded due to applicable ethnic or organisational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is being processed by us, you can request the disclosure of the following information from us:

the purpose of processing,
the categories of your personal data which is being processed,
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is being disclosed, particularly in the case of recipients in third countries,
if possible, the duration for which your personal data is intended to be stored; if this is not possible, the criteria for the determination of this storage period,
the existence of a right to correction of, deletion of, or restriction to the processing of your personal data or a right to object to this processing,
the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority for data protection,
all available information on the source of the data, if the personal data was not being collected from you as the data subject,
where applicable, the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and conclusive information on the logistics involved as well as the consequences and pursued objectives of such automated decision-making processes,
* where applicable, in the case of the transfer to recipients in third countries where no ruling by the EU Commission exists regarding the suitability of the protection level in accordance with Art. 45 (3) of the GDPR, information regarding which suitable guarantees are provided for the protection of personal data in accordance with Art. 46 (2) of the GDPR.
12.2 Correction and completion
If you determine that we have inaccurate data pertaining to your person, you can request the immediate correction of this inaccurate data. If data pertaining to your person is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

12.3 Deletion
You have a right to the deletion of your data (“right to be forgotten”), provided that the processing is not necessary to exercise a right to freedom of expression, a right to information, or for the fulfilment of a legal obligation or the performance of a task which is in the public interest, and one of the following grounds applies:

The personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was processed.
The legal basis for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have withdrawn.
You have lodged an objection against the processing of your personal data which we have made public.
You have lodged an objection against the processing of your personal data which we have not made public and there are no overriding legitimate reasons.
Your personal data was processed illegally.
The deletion of your personal data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation which we are subject to. A claim to deletion does not exist if, in cases of legal and non-automated data processing, the deletion is not possible or is only possible with a disproportionately high effort due to the specific type of storage, and your interest in deleting the data is minimal. In this case the restriction of processing occurs instead of the data being deleted.

12.4 Restriction of processing
You can request the restriction of processing if one of the following grounds applies:

You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case a restriction can be requested for the time it takes us to check the accuracy of the data.

Your personal data is no longer required by us for the purpose of processing, however you require the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
You have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) of the GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested for as long as it remains undetermined whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds.
A restriction to the processing of your personal data means that such personal data shall only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. We are obligated to inform you before we lift the restriction.

12.5 Data portability
You have a right to data portability provided that the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (1a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR) or on a contract to which you are party and the processing occurs with the help of automated procedures. The right to data portability includes in this case the following rights, provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not compromised because of this: You can request the receipt of personal data which you have previously supplied to us in a structured, prevalent and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another controller without any hindrance on our part. In so far as it is technically possible, you can request that we directly transfer your personal data directly to another controller.

This also applies to profiling based on Art. 6 (1) (1e) or Art. 6 (1) (1f) of the GDPR. After you exercise your right to objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can verify compelling grounds for this processing which are worthy of protection and which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You can lodge an objection against the processing of your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising at any time. This also applies to profiling which is linked to such direct advertising.
