§ 11 Rights of the data subject

If personal data about you is processed, you are the data subject in the sense of the GDPR and have the following rights with respect to the controller:

(1) Right to obtain information

You have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed (see Article 15 DSGVO).If such data is being processed, you have the right to request the following information from the controller: – the purpose for which the personal data are being processed; – the categories of personal data that are being processed; – the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed; – the envisaged period for which the personal data concerning you will be stored or, if it is not possible to provide specific information to this effect, the criteria used to determine that storage period; – the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to the restriction of processing by the controller or the right to object to such processing; – the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority; – where the personal data have not been collected from the data subject, any available information as to the source of this data; – the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and – at least in those cases – meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject. You have the right to request information on whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you can request information on the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR relating to the transfer of this data.

(2) Right to rectification

You have the right to obtain from the controller the rectification and/or completion of data, insofar as the personal data concerning you that is being processed is incorrect or incomplete. The controller is obligated to rectify this data without undue delay (Article 16 GDPR).

(3) Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request a restriction of processing of the personal data concerning you where one of the following conditions applies (Article 18 GDPR): – if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data; – the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of the use of the personal data instead; – the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR pending verification of whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your legitimate grounds. Where processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such personal data will only be processed – with the exception of storage – 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 Union or of a Member State. If the processing of data has been restricted in accordance with the conditions described above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

(4) Right to erasure

(a) Obligation to erase data

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller is obligated to erase this data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies (Article 17 GDPR): – The personal data concerning you are no longer required for the purpose for which they were collected or otherwise processed. – You have withdrawn your consent on which the processing is based according to Article 6 (1) (a) or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal ground for the processing. – You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR. – The personal data concerning you were unlawfully processed. – The personal data concerning you have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject. – The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8 (1) GDPR.

(b) Information transferred to third parties

Where the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obligated pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR to erase this data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to this personal data, or copies or replication of this personal data.

(c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
– for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
– for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
– for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Article 9 (2) (h) and (i) GDPR as well as Article 9 (3) GDPR;
– for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) GDPR insofar as the right referred to in section (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing;
– for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.  

(5) Right to be informed

If you have exercised your right to obtain from the controller the rectification or erasure of data or a restriction of processing, the controller is obligated to inform recipients to whom the personal data concerning you were transferred about the rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or would require a disproportionate amount of effort. You have the right to obtain from the controller information about these recipients.

(6) Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have made available to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means. In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. The rights and freedoms of others must not be adversely affected as a result. The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(7) Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions (Article 21 GDPR). If you want to exercise your right to object to the processing of this data, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to Service@BvLArchivio.de or a letter to the address stated under § 1. You can withdraw your previously issued consent for the processing of your data at any time with future effect by sending us a corresponding notification e.g. via e-mail to Service@BvLArchivio.de. The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for such purposes. In the context of the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

(8) Right to withdraw your declaration of consent in accordance with data protection law

You can withdraw your previously issued consent for the processing of your data at any time with future effect by sending us a corresponding notification e.g. via e-mail to Service@BvLArchivio.de. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the legality of the processing of the data that took place before receipt of your notification about the withdrawal of your consent.

(9) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the controller, is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests or is based on your explicit consent. However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9 (1) GDPR, unless Article 9 (2) (a) or (g) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard you rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

(10) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
