You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of personal data. In this case you can contact us at any time through the address given in the site notice. The right of restricting the processing applies in the following cases:
- If you dispute the correctness of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this claim. For the duration of this verification you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data happened or is happening illegitimately, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of its deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but if you need it for the exercise, defense, and establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 Par. 1 GDPR, a weighing of your and our interests has to be made. As long as there is no final assessment on whose interests outweigh the other’s, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
