4.    Your rights

Revocation of consent

You can revoke any permissions given for the processing of your data at any time with future effect. A revocation of consent can be sent by email to or in writing to the address given above. Please note that the revocation does not affect the legality of the previous data processing and that it does not extend to such data processing, for which there is a legal reason for permission and which therefore can be processed without your consent.


Further rights

In addition, you are entitled to the following rights according to Articles 15 to 21 and 77 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), subject to fulfilment of the relevant statutory requirements:

Information: You can request at any time that we disclose which personal data of yours we are using and provide you with a copy of your saved personal data, Article 15 GDPR.

Rectification of incorrect personal data and completion of incomplete personal data, Article 16 GDPR.

Deletion of your personal data: Please note that the deletion excludes data that are required for the implementation and execution of contracts; for the establishment, exercise and defence of legal claims; or that must be retained due to legal, regulatory or contractual obligations, Article 17 GDPR.

Restriction of processing: Under certain circumstances you can request that the processing of your data be restricted, e.g. if you believe the data to be false, if their handling is unlawful or if you have registered an objection to their being processed. In this case, your data may only be processed without your consent in a highly restricted manner, for example, for the establishment, exercise and defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of other natural or legal persons, Article 18 GDPR.

Objection to processing of data: You have the option to object to data processing for direct marketing purposes at any time. In addition, if you have special reasons, you may at any time object to the data processing that takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest, Art. 21 DSGVO.

Data portability: You have the right to receive the data you have already provided us in an established and machine-readable format, and, as far as is technically possible, to request the direct transmission of this to a third party, Article 20 GDPR.

To exercise these rights, we request that you contact our data protection officer via email on or in writing to the address given above.
