A. General

For the sake of easier reading, no gender-specific distinction is made in our data protection declaration. The terms used apply, in the context of equal treatment, to both genders.

The meaning of the terminology used, for example ‘personal data’ or its ‘processing’ can be taken from Article 4 of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Notice regarding the rights of data subjects
The data subject has the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed. Where that is the case, the data subject has the right of access to personal data concerning him or her, and to the information listed in Article 15 GDPR.

The data subject has the right to request that the controller rectify any incorrect personal data or complete any incomplete personal data (Article 16 GDPR).

The data subject has the right to request that the controller erase personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, provided that the reason given is listed in Article 17 GDPR, e.g. the personal data is no longer required in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed (right to erasure).

The data subject has the right to request that the controller restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Article 18 GDPR applies (for example, the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject), for a period enabling the controller to verify its accuracy.

The data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her at any time on grounds relating to his or her particular situation. The controller may then no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims (Article 21 GDPR).

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory body if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data concerning him or her infringes the GDPR (Article 77 GDPR). The data subject may lodge the complaint with any supervisory body in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement. In Baden-Württemberg, the supervisory authority is the State Representative for Data Protection and Freedom of Information for Baden-Württemberg.
