Right to object, and Right of access, of rectification and of removal:
(Art. 21 GDPR & PIPEDA)
On the basis of ART 6 SECT 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR & PIPEDA, you have the right to, at any time, object to the processing of your personal data on the grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are able to present compelling protection-worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweighs your interest, rights and freedom, or if the purpose for processing is the claiming, exercising or defense of legal entitlements (Objection pursuant to ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR & PIPEDA).
If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to, at any time, object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will, subsequently, be longer used for direct advertising (Objection pursuant to ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR & PIPEDA).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR & PIPEDA, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
· Should you choose to dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. While the investigation is in progress, you have the right to demand that we restrict processing your personal data.
· If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of said data.
· If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand a restriction to processing your personal data instead of its eradication.
· If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR & PIPEDA, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
