Right to Restriction of Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your data from us:
If you contest the accuracy of the data, during the period allowing us to verify the accuracy of that data.
If the data processing was unlawful, but you refuse deletion and instead request the restriction of data usage.
If the data are no longer needed for the intended purposes but are still required by us for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
If you have objected to the processing of personal data for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority.
If data processing is restricted, such personal data may only be processed with your consent, except for data storage, setting, enforcement, or defense of legal claims, or the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest. If processing restriction is obtained, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
Right to Object
If we process your data for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, or if we rely on our legitimate interests during their processing, you can object to such data processing if there is an interest in protecting your data. If we rely on our legitimate interests for data processing, and you object to such processing, we will not further process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling and legitimate reasons for the processing that override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or if it is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of our legal claims.
Right to Lodge a Complaint
