Where processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interests of the Union or a Member State. If the processing of your personal data has been restricted due to one of the above-mentioned circumstances, we will inform you before the restriction of processing is lifted.

(4). Right to erasure

In exercising this right, you can also demand that the personal data concerning you be transmitted directly from us to another controller, if this is technically feasible. However, this must not impair any freedoms and rights of other persons. The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(9). Right to object

a) You are entitled to object, for reasons relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you and which is based on Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. In this case, we will no longer process the personal data concerned unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is necessary to assert, exercise or defend any legal claims. If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you can object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this shall also apply to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing that is made for purposes of direct marketing, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications. b) You have the right to withdraw your consent to processing at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of the processing that was based on the consent before it was revoked. c) You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for the purpose of entering into or performing a contract between you and us; (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or (3) is based on your explicit consent. However, such decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests are in place. In the cases referred to under (1) and (3), we will implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, the right to express your point of view and the right to contest the decision.

(10). Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you are entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority with which a complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant about the status of the complaint and the decision, including the the right to a judicial remedy in accordance with Article 78 of the GDPR.
