The assertion of your rights is basically free of charge. Only if it concerns obviously unfounded requests or an excessive number of demands, can this potentially incur costs for you.
Your rights are as follows:
Information about personal data
You have the right to request information about which personal data we process pertaining to you. You also have the right to request a copy of your data if we process personal data pertaining to you. As part of replying to your request for information, we will inform you about the processing purposes and the categories of personal data being processed.
Correction of personal data
You have the right to request the correction of incorrect information or completion of incomplete information pertaining to your personal data that is used for processing.
You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data. If you request us to delete your personal data, we will delete all of your personal data immediately, unless there is a legal right of retention or a legal storage obligation. We will delete all personal information when you revoke your consent or when we are legally obliged to do so.
Restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you if
• you deny the accuracy of the data;
• the processing is illegal, but you do not want the data to be deleted;
• the data is not necessary for the purposes of processing, but we need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
• You object and have not yet determined whether there are legitimate reasons for further processing of the data.

If the restriction is lifted and we process your personal information again, you will be notified immediately.
You have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to you. You can object to the processing of your personal data if we base the processing on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 §1 (f) GDPR).

You have the right to receive personal information about yourself in a structured, common and machine-legible format. You also have the right to request the transfer of personal data about yourself directly from us to a responsible third party. We will comply with a request for transfer of your personal data to a responsible third party, provided that the rights or freedoms of other persons are not violated and insofar as the transfer is technically possible.
