Withdrawing your consent to data processing

Right to data portability

You are entitled to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The data will be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if technically feasible.

Right to access, rectification, blocking, erasure

Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free access to your stored personal data, the origin of the data, their recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. In this regard and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the legal notice.
