These rights follow from 17 EU GDPR.

d) Right to limitation of processing

You have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be restricted if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data, namely for a period that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data, that the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted, we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the EU GDPR, as long as it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons on our part prevail over you. Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned reasons, such personal data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

These rights follow from 18 EU GDPR.

The right exists that the data controller shall notify all recipients to whom personal data have been disclosed of any correction or deletion of the personal data or any restriction on processing in accordance with Articles 16, 17(1) and 18 of the EU DSG Regulation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

These rights follow from Art. 19 EU GDPR.

These rights follow from Art. 21 EU GDPR.

h) Right to revoke consent

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

We store the personal data collected for contract processing until the expiry of statutory or possible contractual deadlines, which serves to assert or exercise our legal claims or to defend legal claims against us. Once the corresponding periods have expired, we keep the information required by tax or commercial law for the periods provided for by law. Any further storage will only take place if a longer storage period is provided for by law or other regulations to which we are subject or if we have a legitimate interest in further storage.
